This is my second time ordering from Edible Landscaping. The first time ordering was an excellent experience; same for the second time as well. This time I ordered two native Chinkapin trees as well as one \"Viking\" Aronia shrub. All trees were in excellent condition and the packaging was superb. I will order from them again when I see something else I just have to have. Thanks!

We have mail-ordered from Edible Landscaping several times during the past three years.

I don't typically write reviews, however, I've spent hours pouring over reviews for most all products (and companies) when purchasing online. I had never heard of Edible Landscaping before and after reading their reviews here, I decided to give them a try. I had ordered a male hardy kiwi to accompany my lone female from the year before. She was purchased as a matched set from another nursery, the male had died, and it was too late in the season to replace it last year. This year, when the email notification came through that the previous nursery had them in stock, I quickly ordered...only to be me with an email months later that they were out of stock. I figured it was time to look elsewhere.

Update. I am completely impressed now that I have received my third order. The box that arrived was 6.5 ft tall and loaded with healthy plants. The contorted jujube makes me smile each time I see it. I would also like to say that the shipping isn't as expensive as it appeared to be before. I got a large order and the shipping was just $30. 3 double gold raspberries 2.75"pots, ichci ki kei jiro oriental persimmon 3/4 gallon, contorted jujube 3 gallon, Russian pomegranate salavatski quart pot, wintergreen 2" pot, black velvet gooseberry 2" pot and a cherry red currant quart pot. Plants $135.50, total $165.50. Highly recommend. Daydreaming about what other additions I can add to our garden from EL.

Received a large order of various edibles like figs, pineapple guava, blueberries, a pawpaw, a filbert, and some other things. They are all gorgeous! I got way more for my money than I expected. All shipped very well with no damage. Couldn't recommend Edible Landscaping more.

I've placed and received 2 or 3 mail orders from EL, all completely positive, some with a couple dozen items. I also visited the nursery and got some things late last year. I think they're great, and if I ever did have any problems (which I'm sure will happen with them as with any nursery sooner or later), I'm very confident that they'd make things right. One thing that I think is especially notable about EL is that they do a really outstanding job of helping people find plants that will actually do well for them. For example, while I was there I heard the owner tell an employee to take some perfectly healthy trees out of inventory and not to sell any more because the fruit was just too disease prone.

So far so good. Received 3 trees and an herb. The Che and Yuzu and the herb were very healthy. Perfect in fact. The pomogranate was dormant as expected so the jury will wait until the spring. It takes them about 48 to 72 hours to respond to email, but they have always reponded. What is most intriguing about them is that they have a broad collection of stuff I can't find in any one place. Sure I can get a goji on one site, josta at another ... But then I hit a shipping min at every site. If these plants develop as expected I will be ordering many more. I wish I lived in VA so I could drop by.

I received my shipment a number of weeks ago. Everything was healthy and green then and they are healthy and green now. I was particularly pleased with the Dogwood 'seedling' which was two feet tall and very well developed. I look forward to ordering from them again.

This is my first experience with Edible Landscapes. I found their website when I was looking for a special Blackberry Plant. They did not have what I was looking for but they did had two other berry plants I had never heard of. I wanted to try them and they were the only source on the internet that I could find that had the Schultz Thornless Black Berry and the Wyeberry (a rare black berry red raspberry cross that is suppose to be more winter hardy than the Tayberry). Their website said that the Schultz Thornless plants would not be ready to ship until May 7, 2012. I ordered all my plants on April 14, 2012. They called and said that they might not have the Wyeberry plant but if they were able find one they would include it in the shipment. When I had not heard from them by May 12, I called them and left a voice message and asked about when I might expect the shipment. When I did not get a call back from them by May 14th, I sent an email for a follow up or the shipment date. On May 15th I got an email back saying the plants would be shipped on May 21, 2012. On May 18th, I got a phone call from a lady at Edible Landscapes saying she was following up on my phone call the previous week and wanted to let me know that the plants were being shipped on May 21, 2012. I laughed and thanked her for the call. I told her I had gotten an email response from them the previous Friday giving me the same information. I thanked her for following up with me and said that in the future I would send emails because they got responded to faster. On Monday May 21st, I received an email confirmation saying my plants had been sent by FedEx and gave the tracking number with the link to FedEx. I was able to track my shipment from the time it was sent to the time it arrived. The plants arrived safe and very well packaged five days later. They were larger than I expected some of the plants were in bloom and already had small berries on them. They were also well rooted for a good start this year. I planted them the day they arrived. I was happily surprised to find that they had found a Wyeberry plant in a large container and included it in my shipment. I am very pleased with the quality and size of their plants. Their customer service was good and the speed of shipment was excellent. I can highly recommend them.

I've ordered from Edible Landscaping twice and have been pleased with what I got, despite the fact some of the plants are no longer with me. My first order was in spring 2010. I bought three blueberry plants and two cherries. 2010 was also one of the hottest, driest summers we've had in Virginia in a long time. Our well ran dry and so I wasn't able to water my plants like I wish I could have. Despite that, two of my blueberries managed to survive, though they did suffer some considerable dieback. They've recovered somewhat (it's now early 2012) and I'm hoping that they're now back on track to bloom and fruit next season.

I am changing my review to 'negative' now since Edible should have known better than to send me 2 pathetic looking plants, especially after I specifically requested healthy fruiting plants. As for the blueberry plant. I have never seen a potted blueberry plant that had some bare twigs on it (bare- no leaves, no buds, no flowers, nothing) in June. After I remove them (they look like dead branches) the plant will be even more spindly and pathetic looking. The other branches have leaves, but no flowers, no buds, no fruit (whole plant only has 5 fruits). BUYER BEWARE.

Now I am updating this to POSITIVE!!! Michael (I believe he is the owner) of Edible sent me 2 replacement plants- a very healthy looking blueberry and a very healthy looking jostaberry. I didn't ask for replacement plants, and wasn't expecting any, but I was was thrilled when I got them. This shows that they take customer service very seriously, and have integrity when dealing with customers. I will definitely order from them again & recommend them to friends.

I found Edible Landscaping in my search for Day Avocado. To say I am delighted would be an understatement. The tree I purchased is HUGE and healthy. Though it will be overwintered in a GH, it has done beautifully for the past month in a container in my yard. I also ordered a hops vine, which transplanted with no difficulty, and is healthy, and vigorous. Packing was great, phone communication very helpful, and speedy delivery. I will return next spring for several other items. Five stars from me!

I ordered 2 jujube trees from here. They came quickly and were in good shape, well packed. The only issue was that I ordered a Li and a Lang, and got 2 Langs.

Communication with ediblelandscaping.com was excellent. Delivery was timely. All plants are in the ground & growing. Any nursery that accomplishes those three things makes me a satisfied customer.

Recently placed an order, their customer service is great, but the shipping charges are alittle high compared to others. Overall can't wait till the plants arrive.

Coffee plant arrived today, it looks great. Leaves were green and the overall plant was bigger than expected. Will buy from again next year.

I ordered 3 raspberry plants and a medlar tree. The plants were packed very well and arrived in excellent condition. They even upgraded the size of the raspberries I ordered. The information sent with the order was very helpful and informative. I'll definitely order from them again.

I ordered 3 Blueberry plants and 2 fig plants from Edible Landscaping this year. The individuals that I spoke with before I ordered and when I actually ordered could not have been more pleasant to deal with.They were willing to discuss the survivability of certain varieties that I was thinking about planting, and the young lady who took my order was willing to discuss the flavor profiles of the fig plants they carried to help me decide which ones I actually wanted to order. The potted plants arrived well packed and were in wonderful shape with little or no breakage. I look forward to ordering from this company again.

I ordered from them based on a recommendation from a fellow gardener. My plants arrived last week as promised and I was very pleased with how healthy they looked, their nice size and the careful way they were packed.

Wow! That was fast!! I ordered a red currant bush and Surround spray last week, and it arrived today. The bush is extremely healthy looking, almost 2 years old (1 gallon), and it was packaged with great care. The Surround spray is hard to find, and it was reasonably priced at Edible Landscaping, and shipping charges were not exorbitant either. They were very nice to speak with on the phone too. I definitely hope to do business with them again. :)

I've ordered about 5 times from Edible Landscaping. Each time the order arrived promptly and I've been impressed with the plants. Only once did I get a call asking if I was OK with a substitute because something wasn't available and ironically I wanted the substitute more - it just wasn't on the website. I've called and added to an order at the last minute too and all was handled extremely well. All plants have arrived in great packaging and good condition. I'll order from them again.

I just got my order today and I only ordered last week! And I'm so excited because I finally got my Flying Dragon citrus tree!!! It's been on my list for awhile now. Very nice package, though a little hard to remove all that tape around the pot. I had ordered two other plants as well, a cranberry and sweet bay laurel, both packaged similarly and all with plenty of dirt. And I was kinda surprised as to the size of the plants, definitely larger than I was expecting to get. I'm not sure if I'll order again just because they don't have else on my list, but I definetly would they did.

Edited - September 25-2008
I'm changing my feedback to neutral...I had realized that the "Flying Dragon" plant I received had very straight thorns, which are supposed to be curved so i called and spoke with a woman, I didn't catch her name. She said she would speak to Owner and get back to me by email, that was 2 days ago, I've yet to see an email. She said it may be because it's a young plant, but I'm skeptical. I'll wait a few more days and if I haven't received an email I will call again. But all the plants themselves are fine.

Hadn't received an email, unless it got spammed by my server, so I called back. I was correct, I did not have a flying dragon and they informed me that they had shipped one my way. YAY!!! Going back to Positive where it shall stay.

We ordered 3 persimmon trees and a couple of dwarf pomegranate. They were nicely packaged but one of the persimmon trees was basically a stick in dirt...no roots, nothing. My husband called and they sent a replacement almost immediately. I don't recall the details, but it seems that something was wrong with the replacement so my husband made another call. At that point, if I were an Edible Landscaping employee, I would have been reluctant to send YET another replacement, but they promised to do so in a couple weeks. A little over a week later one was mailed and everything is great. I commend them on their pleasantness and trusting that we weren't making up stories (although we would have sent digital pictures if necessary!). We'll definitely order from them again in the future...although they might prefer that we NOT do that! :-)

I ordered a coffee plant as a Christmas present for my husband. Unfortunately, their website was down, but they responded quickly to my email with a phone number to call. The csr was very helpful, and I received my order in 1 week for the regular shipping charge, which was impressive, given it was the week before Christmas. I was also impressed by how carefully packaged the plant was, and how healthy it looked. I'm not sure how it will fare as a houseplant, but if it doesn't thrive, it was through no fault of the company. I'm looking forward to ordering some more plants in the spring.

I am pleased with this company's products and customer service. I ordered four blueberries earlier in the year, and they arrived in good shape. I just ordered and received Tristar strawberries in four inch pots. The plants were robust and well-rooted. Good customer service on the phone. Will order again from this company!

Great selection of products and information. I am so excited to have found some items like cranberries that I can experiment with. The care with which they pack everything is impressive, especially compared to other online vendors. At first I was concerned about the size of the plants because they seemed small; however, I know that the root system of a plant is exponentially much more important than anything you can see above ground, and the roots were all healthy and well developed when I planted.

Yesterday, I recieved two Blueberry plants that were in excellent condition. The packing was perfect and the plants looked like they were just transplanted that moment. All this and they were in transit for three days. The berries were larger than I anticipated. Prior to this order I ordered and recieved a Persimmons tree which was also larger than I expected and also in excellent condition. They are, as far as I am concerned, the best that I have ever done business with pertaining to live plants and I shall continue to do so....

Ordered a sweet pomegranate from this company in Feb. and I recieved it the week of April 16. It was cold when I ordered and they just said they start shipping in the beginning of April which is fine. Plant it's self was decent size I wouldn't say big. Packaging was great, tall cardboard box with the pot firmly held in. Top of the pot was all taped up which held the soil in and the plant was staked up by two poles.

Very early on in the season I ordered two Rosemary plants from this company. They shipped them for me despite the fact that almost no other company was shipping plants at that time.
