I read the reviews on this company and decided to order from Patrick Sarisky. He was one of the few vendors that had Berry Smoothie Heuchera and and Sweet Tea Heucherella, both hot new 2010 introductions still available. His prices were fair and the shipping prices were reasonable. He sent me an email the same day I ordered my plants and notified me that they would arrive within 2 to 3 days. The plants arrived in 2 days. They were well packaged, nicely rooted and health plants. One looked a little worse for wear but I have no doubt that it will recover and grow well. I am very pleased with my buying experience with Patrick and will order from him again. It is nice to find a company that has good customer service with quality products as well.

I was looking for 'Georgia Peach' Heuchera during fall, which is harder than during spring. (I live in Dallas, so we've got a few more months of warmer weather before the frosts come.) I also found that they carried Brunnera 'Looking Glass', which I also wanted. So I ordered two of each. The heucheras arrived in good shape. Several mature leaves on each. I received an email ahead of time warning me that the Brunnera was already starting to show signs of going dormant. One Brunnera actually didn't look half bad. Good size, plenty of roots, and the leaves didn't really show signs of going dormant. The other Brunnera, I'm afraid, had been wrapped up along with a small, black, iridescent beetle, and two snails. So most of its leaves were chewed up. But it had a couple, untouched mature leaves and a few younger leaves, plus lots of "buds" at the crown, and lots of root mass. So I snipped off the bad leaves, planted them all, and we'll see what happens.
The plants came with a TerraNova label, so I'm guessing Eminence Meadow got their plugs from there. The plants came in a sturdy, plain, white box. Each plant looked like it had been grown in healthy, friable garden soil as opposed to artificial growing medium. Each plant was wrapped in newspaper, which was then put inside of a small, brown paper bag, which was then placed inside the box with more newspaper added to keep everything in place. Which was good because my postman decided to leave the package upside down for me. There was no writing on the box about there being live plants inside, though. The postman might have been more careful if there were.
Overall, the experience was plenty good and I would order from them again.

I just ordered about $100. of plants from Eminence Meadows. I ordered hostas, epimedium (beautiful!), monkshood, and an unusual fern, (among others) so I feel I had a good cross-section of their products. ALL of the plants were very nice sized for the money and obviously freshly dug and packaged. As a matter of fact, from the time I browsed their website to the time the plants were at my door was LESS than 1 week! I also had a question about a plant before I ordered, and got a very nice answer the same day... on a Sunday. I would definitely do business with this company again!

This was my first order from Eminence Meadows. I found them on the internet when searching for Heucheras. They have some hard to find ones. I was very pleased with the plants. My order was shipped immediately and was received a few days after I ordered. Great care was taken in packing the plants for shipment. I highly recommend this nursery.
I discovered Eminence Meadows this spring while searching the internet for heucheras. This is a small nursery with a wonderful selection of heucheras, hostas. and other perennials. The heuchera list included many of the newer varieties I had been looking for plus many I had never heard of. The extensive hosta list had some of the much sought after streaked varieties. As an added bonus you got free hostas(a first for me with perrenial nurseries).I immediately placed an order.The owner worked with me to find a suitable ship date,as his plants are just breaking dormancy when I (being farther south) am into full planting.The order arrived on time with nice healthy plants that had been carefully packed and neatly labeled. Patrick was nice enough to notify me when he acquired new varieties, and I placed a second order.All the plants ordered from this nursery are doing great. I love to find smaller nurseries to order from because you generally get speedier service with a more personalized touch. This nursery exceeded my expectations and delivered beautiful plants. The owner was professional in every respect and I will definitely order from them again.Eminence Meadows is now one of my favorite nurseries.
I was searching for an unusual Lungwort to plant in my new shade garden. Eminence Meadows was one of the few nursery's that carried 'Irish Spring'. The plants were beautiful and thrived.
I would definately buy from them again.
