I felt a little nervous about ordering from a company with so few Dave's Garden reviews. Nonetheless, since the reviews I saw were all positive, I ordered two buddleja (that's how they spell it). I received the plants more quickly than I'd expected, and the plants were of great quality: leafed out and healthy-looking. I'm very pleased, and hope they will grow well and beautify the church property.

I ordered several varieties of butterfly bush that I could not find anywhere other than those small hybrid size varieties (3-5 ft) at the orange big box store. I was more accustomed to the normal 6-12ft growing varieties. Yes, I found them here, they sell them in decent 2.5 inch pots starters size. They arrived priority mail box which took two days to arrive (this is correct time for priority mail), and super well packed with plastic sandwich bag stapled to enclosed the soil from falling out from the pot,then each plant/pot was individually wrapped in sort of lightly damp newspaper to protect the stem/leaves and maintain some moisture during shipping. Then each was placed carefully in the box cushioned by more newspaper so that overall the box doesn't rattle much at all during shipping. This reflects the amount of care they take with their plants being shipped. When I opened the box, there was also an instruction sheet that provided info on what to do with the plants right out of the box. So all plants were decent size for the size of the pot and were in my opinion well rooted hardy plants, and not sticks that were just stuck in soil. I would purchase again from this vendor and recommend to others.

I can honestly say that I have never received healthier or more lush plants by mail than I have from Colonial Creek. They were packed well and absolutely beautiful, much more than I expected. I also was very satisfied at the reasonable shipping. I couldn't be any happier with them.

I ordered 3 mint and 3 lavender plants for Colonial Creek Farm. My order was delivered in 3 days. Plants all look vigorous and healthy-as good or better than if I had bought locally. Packaging kept plants moist (in 90 degree heat) with no crushing or loss of soil. A good resource for plants.
I have ordered from Colonial Creek Farm twice. Each time shipping was fast, no waiting weeks for my plants. When my plants arrived they were healthy and a nice size. Their prices are very reasonable for plants and shipping.
I ordered a variety of mint plants and a rosemary plant from Colonial Creek just as the weather began to turn cold in zone 5. I couldn't find another company such a large variety that was willing to ship so late in the year, so was I pleased to come across them. Their prices are affordable and all plants were tightly packaged in damp newspaper and a sturdy box. I accidentally killed the rosemary within weeks (forgot to bring it in one night), but that was completely my fault. Luckily the mint is thriving! I plan to buy several more varieties of mint and rosemary next spring when it's safe for them to ship. Thanks Colonial Creek!
The only place online I could find Black and Blue Salvia Guernica and the plants are a nice size for the price. Also their hot lips Salvia is great too. Ships quick and the customer service is excellent. Don't hesitate to order from them. Thanks, Colonial Creek Farm!
I love, love, love this company! They offer unusual plants that are reasonably priced with moderate shipping costs. I have ordered 3 times in the past 3 weeks from their eBay store. I was delighted to receive gorgeous healthy plants every time. I will undoubtedly order from them again in the near future!

I ordered 4 plants from Colonial Creek Farms: Tuscan Blue Rosemary, French Tarragon, Spearmint, English Thyme.
All four plants were shipped in January to Southern Indiana with temperatures in the teens during the day and colder at night. The package was shipped by USPS and arrived with four very healthy and great looking plants. I am very happy with my purchase and will differently purchase from them again.

I ordered from Colonial Creek Farm for the first time this year, after an otherwise fruitless search for a few specific, hard-to-find plants that my favorite herb retailer didn't carry. I generally try to order herbs/edibles from organic growers, but Colonial Creek states on their home page that they avoid the use of pesticides, which is a good start. And their prices are great!! I shouldn't say that I was surprised to open my box and find such big, healthy, fragrant plants, but I was! And I finally get to enjoy the elusive tangerine sage and a strawberry-scented geranium. The latter doesn't actually smell very much like strawberries, but it's nice to finally know for sure! :)

So very pleased with plants I received from this company. They have interesting plants, which I couldn't find locally. I thought pricing was reasonable, again, considering the plants I got are not locally available. Highly recommend.

I ordered a number of plants from this company and was very disappointed when they arrived. All were waterlogged and definitely beyond any saving. I immediately emailed the company with the news and received new healthy plants within a few days. The company is new to me but I will be ordering from them in the future.
Colleen was so very polite and apologetic and was right on top of it from the first. Thanks Colonial Creek Farm and Colleen !
