I ordered from this company for the first time this spring--perennials, shrubs, and a Japanese Maple (Autumn Moon). All six orders placed (by phone and internet) came promptly, plants were in A-1 condition, well-packed and are now thriving. Their customer service reps are courteous and knowledgeable. I rate them the highest of seven mail order nurseries I have purchased from including two on your top 30 list.
I have ordered from this company the past two years....very, very pleased with the healthy Large plants.
In order to really appreciate this company, one needs to see the quality packing and shipping. Plants are hydrated and have stakes in the containers so crushing are not a problem. I will reorder next year.
Customer Service is also very good.
The plants which I received from Red Barn Gardens arrived in large gallon containers ready to plant. I have never seen such healthy plants. They are flourishing in my garden. I have never had this much luck with plantings from my local nursery. The company took care with packaging and my plants arrived at the correct time for my area. I will surely order from Red Barn Gardens this fall. I'll look forward to the bulbs coming up in the spring. Thanks Red Barn!
I ordered several plants from Red Barn this past spring, and was incredibly impressed with the size, price, condition, and shipping of the plants. All perennials were substantial in size and were fully developed plants, not just small twigs and roots. In fact, they looked better than the large potted perennials I bought at the garden center that same weekend. The packing was the best I've seen. The plants came in a tall box and each plant was dropped from the top into its own square cardboard sheath the same height as the box - about 2 feet high - so that none of the foliage was bent or broken. I will undoubtedly continue to order from Red Barn Gardens.
Red Barn Gardens' advertising is enticing and directs you to an easy to use website. I received plants right on schedule. All of the plants were large, had full roots, and were packaged in sturdy boxes that were easy to open. Some plants bloomed two weeks after I planted them. I was really impressed with the quality of the plants that I received! The peonies were huge! Not just some cut off the mother plant. The peonies bloomed for me the first year I planted them.
