I have ordered from Gurneys and their sister companies for decades.

I ordered in a moment of insanity or weakness thinking it would stop the barrage of coupons and promotions to every point of contact I mistakenly provided (email, facebook, home address, etc.) but, silly me. It made no difference. It seems they double their prices so that you're forced to use the coupons they bombard you with. I imagine they shake hands at the end of the fiscal year thinking their tactics were effective (and, well, they were).

Possibly against my better judgement I decided to try again with Gurneys. I purchased some seeds, a Blue Girl rose and a Blueberry. I still do not like how you have to wait and hope that they have the item in inventory. The olive from before? It died.
This order went much better. The two plants were much larger and looked healthier. I might do business with them again.

Ordered 2 Ka-bluey blueberry plants last year in January. Small plants arrived in March, one year ago. Grew much larger in pots over summer, supplemented with the Gurney "blueberry food". No fruit yet. Fall color was pleasant light red/orange, small leaves, persisted well into early Winter. Over-wintered indoors in pots. Zone 7. Both starting to leaf out again now (still indoors). Will be planted in ground once permanent site is chosen. Review to be updated this coming Fall with regard to fruit. Ordered one dwarf Meyer lemon and one dwarf Key lime. Planted both under same conditions. The Dwarf Meyer Lemon grew well but the Key Lime died very soon after arrival. Gurney's to be contacted for replacement and review to be updated as to how it is handled.

An update to both orders:
All the plants from the 1st order are doing really well. The bush cherry and strawberries are growing like gangbusters. The grapevine broke dormancy, and how! It is vigorous to say the least.
One the 2nd order, the blueberry trio arrived 4/13. They were all really healthy and the largest one even had a few flower buds on it! The peach tree and additional grapevine arrived on 4/27. The peach tree was tall (over 3 ft tall) but dormant so I was a little worried because we're talking absolutely NO signs of life. I planted it immediately and within 3 days saw green growth. I'm no longer worried. :)
This time the grapevine was a puny little thing - not big and robust like the one from the 1st order. I planted it anyway, but after no signs of breaking dormancy, and snipping the tip showed dried and brown and not firm and green, I called Customer Service. My call was answered promptly and the woman informed me that the variety I had ordered was no longer available. She helped me choose a suitable replacement. While I did not receive a confirmation email, I was able to see the no charge replacement order on their website with an estimated ship time of around May 18. I just went to check again and the item just shipped May 8, and I should have it May 11th or 12th.
Like my review of related company Henry Field's, try as I might to have find one thing to nitpick about with my experience(s) with Gurney's, I can't find one. From start to finish, it's all been positive.
On May 29th, 2014, lilaclily changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:
While my bush cherries, strawberries and peach tree are thriving, I am updating my review to reflect my disappointment in the "Ka-Bluey" blueberry trio. As you see from the date of my original review, 5 years have passed. That trio of plants, while still alive, have not thrived. 5 years later, they are puny little sticks that do not get any bigger and do not produce more than one flower/fruit. I stubbornly refuse to compost them and get healthy, producing plants from the local nurseries, but I'm thinking I need to just accept it and move on rather than continue to give these runts prime space in my garden.
Incidentally, while my strawberries grow and produce each year, they have proven to be June-bearing and not everbearing. So I was probably shipped the wrong kind 5 years ago.

I ordered 4 trees from Gurneys this year. I have ordered from them in the past and have been satisfied. I ordered a apricot, a nectacot and 2 peach trees. The apricot arrived first, they were out of the standard size and substituted two i dont even know if i could call them twigs to replace the full grown tree. I called and let them know I was very disappointed and they promptly refunded my money. I did plant the little sticks because I didnt want to just throw them away. Well they were so small the first time I mowed I ran over them because I couldnt see them! The next to arrive was the peach trees. I have ordered them before from Gurneys and they have been decent size, this year they were pathetic, half dead and very small. I called again to say I was very disappointed, they told me last summer was not a good year for growing peach trees. I told them I would try them out. I planted the trees, but within two weeks I could see they had died and I pulled them out. I called back and was again promptly refunded my money. I was waiting for my last tree arrive wondering what this one will look like. Well to my surprise they ran out of this tree and it was cancelled on me and Again I was refunded the remainder of my money. I was very disappointed in Gurney's this year, I have never got awesome trees from them in the past, but they at least were a little bigger and ALIVE! The only reason I gave them a neutral rating instead of a negative is because there customer service has been so good about refunding if you have a problem with anything. That has always been the case with Gurney's is their great customer service. I ordered fruit trees from Stark Brothers and Van Well Nursery. The Stark Brother trees were nice size and alive, much better than Gurney's, but if you want nice fruit trees order from Van Well Nursery, the trees I got from them were beyond nice. Large, well branched, large caliper trees. Very impressed with them. I will only order from them and if I cant order from them what I want I will go to Stark Brothers.

FYI: Customers ordering from Gurney's Seed & Nursery previous to 2000 were dealing with a totally different organization than that of today. Before 2000, it was located in Yankton, SD where it was started in 1892 and operated there until 2000, when it was sold and moved. People who worked there were proud of the company and cared about the customers.

Ordered asparagus plants for my FIL's birthday last May and payment was taken out promptly as soon as I ordered. Received the plants 1st week in December. Since I live in Iowa, I doubt the plants had much time to get roots established before we received 14 inches of snow. Neutral since only time will tell if my 60 plants survived.

I finally received the key lime I ordered. Seems like it took forever, but I finally got it. The plum tree is looking good...the cherry tree is living, but not doing so well. Not sure how they grow, but it took a long time to come out of dormancy which I thought was unusual. We'll see how it grows.....

While I will never order from Gurney (or Field's) again, they did refund most of my money, without being asked. I had ordered and planted Vinca and lilacs which failed to thrive and were non-existent by the following spring. The wild flower seeds grew and even came back the next year. I wrote them just to explain the plants died even though they had been cared for according to directions. They sent a check for partial payment! I wrote again to ask for an explanation. They then sent another check, minus S&H, plus a new seed packet! Odd, since I had specifically complimented them on the seed growth as being different than the plant death! Their customer service people do not read, their plants do not thrive, but they do cut checks.

Not looking good.
Went to check the shipment status of my order at their website and for whatever reason the website says it doesn't exist.
Sent an email a week ago to a "Donna" who had contacted me after the 1st post through DG ... and as of yet NO reply.

I ordered five berry plants this spring, received them in three different shipments. Three out of the five plants did not survive. I hoped they might pull through, but finally realized it was not to be. Called customer service today and was informed all are out of stock for reshipment this season. One blueberry and one blackberry are available for shipping this Sept, and the other blueberry next spring. I was given the option to have them shipped this fall and next spring, or to have all three shipped next spring. I have chosen to receive the replacements as soon as available. The customer service rep was friendly and prompt with the replacement option and gave me a confirmation number. I'll update my rating once the replacements are actually received.

Gurneys had shown a "Buy one, Get one free" deal on their website. I ordered a Clematis and it arrived in very good condition, when my "Free" Clematis did not arrive I called them and was told that I was not able to participate in the offer, despite what the "promotion" said. I had copied the offer and put it in "WORD". No where on the page did it say I could not participate. I refuse to argue over $7.00, so I told them that I would take my business elsewhere. The Clematis I purchased is doing fine, but the integrity of the company is sadly lacking.

Two things. First, a couple of years ago I ordered blackberry plants thinking they would ship for spring planting. They rolled in here in the hottest, driest part of the year for fall planting. The ground was hard as a rock and I was pretty ticked. Besides, whoever heard of planting blackberries in the fall?? I couldn't find any scientific documentation to support this.

Right this moment, my feelings are negative but since I had a previous positive experience, I'm only clicking Neutral.
The asparagus replacements are due to be shipped this spring. Turns out, we are moving, and I don't plan to be here come May, when they're supposed to ship. I sent an email to customer service, to ask if I could get a credit certificate instead of a reship, Dec 5th and again Jan 15th. I got no reply. I sent a message about no replies to my emails via the website, but since I didn't actually ask about the credit cert (I guess I was hoping they'd read my emails) I got a reply telling me when my plants would ship. I replied to that email, I believe Jan 31, and still nothing. I complained about the situation (general lack of response) on the Facebook page (nothing) and I have just sent another CS request on the website with my actual question (which I really didn't feel was that difficult to answer). We'll see if I get a reply.
I guess my point is, don't expect a reply if you email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Have ordered several things from them over the years, with no major problems. This year, I ordered a pair of dwarf banana trees, that took a while to arrive. When I opened the box, I found two spindly, sickly looking plants, and placed them in a sunny window. I'm a good gardener, and have babied these plants until they look better than the ones in the catalog. They are now shoulder height with leaves two to three feet long. They have also divided at the roots, and I have seven baby banana trees. They will all go into the greenhouse for the winter, so it will be interesting to see what happens next year.

First experience with this company. I was tempted by an offer found through web search for $25 off a $50 order. I figured it was an end of season sale and decided to give them a try. I placed order for some ferns on June 13 and my debit card reflected the charge the very next morning. Decided to review this forum and found many negatives posted, so I sent them an email asking when the estimated shipping date would be, as I was aware the cut-off was June 15. I received no reply to the email, so the next day, being unwilling to risk the issues described in this forum, I send a request for the order to be cancelled and my debit card to be refunded. They did so promptly within a few hours. I am grateful to have this forum as a resource.

I recently ordered a passiflora 'maypop' and it came well packed and the vine was about 5'' and healthy. within 2 weeks it drooped and died. I did not have a chance to harden it due to the fact that I live in Wisconsin and its still to cold here so the plant was placed in my indoor greenhouse. Im not sure if I did anything wrong to cause this, but any advise would help because I do have 5 more varieties of passion flowers and would cry if any more met the same fate!

I'm not sure why I placed an order for strawberries on their website--there was no way to tell when the plants would ship or what sort of packaging/pots they would be in. At any rate, the plants came, but there was no advance notice and it was a long wait for not a great product. I'd rather pay more for better quality and more info about what exactly will arrive and when.

I ordered a red currant, black raspberry, blueberry, and 50 strawberry plants form Gurney's at the end of February. There was a deal going for $25 off an order of $50, so I decided to give this nursery a try. I noticed that their prices were a bit higher than what I'd seen elsewhere, but I figured they were paying for half the order, so they could afford to have higher prices. I also assumed that high prices would indicate high quality plants, but that wasn't quite right. My black raspberry was a twig with a small bundle of roots hanging off the bottom. The blueberry was small, but had pretty nice roots. The currant had quite a bit of roots as well, but was also small. The strawberries were pretty well rooted, but about a dozen of them were dried out. Not bad, but I was hoping for better quality.

I recieved a contender peach tree last year they just never would grow. Other than that everything else I have bought in the past few years has been good.

First, I still order seeds from Gurneys. However, I would like to point out that the current Gurney's Seeds and Nursery has nothing to do with any living or past Gurney other than the format of the catalog and the branding. It's just a mail order house. I am a descendant of the original Gurneys from Yankton and its really not that great of a story how it all transpired, but I don't believe the company that currently holds the name is responsible for that. I do hope that they do their best to provide good service and products for the good of the family name.

Last winter I ordered some blueberry plants from Gurney's. I received them at least 3 weeks earlier than any other nursery stock I have ever received. If I had not prepared the planting holes beforehand, planting would have been delayed for several weeks. I was advised to heel the plants in, but that's hard to do when the ground is frozen and snow covered!.

I ordered on 4/8/09 their HEIRLOOM RAINBOW BLEND TOMATO to be shipped 4/26/09. I called and spoke to Dave on 5/20/09 and asked were my shipment was. He told me they had a freeze and would ship in a week or two. I wanted to cancel the order and was told I had to wait till I received the order. I received them on 6/3/09, this is to late to plant were I am at (90 days to maturity) we get snow in October, and the plants were mush in the package when I opened them ( were they frozen in shipment?) No tomatoes this year. I will buy all my plants locally from now on. NO MORE MAIL ORDER
