I chose Spring Hill Nursery because of several people in my area that purchased items from them and had those items THRIVE. I'm not a novice gardener, yet I was not so lucky with my purchases. I got 2 different items, both well suited for my zone, yet the live plants died and the roots molded over! Repeated emails to them asking for a REFUND went unanswered; when I finally got a response I was told that refund checks had been ordered. I had specifically asked for a credit card refund. I called the company directly, who proceeded to give me several different stories in 15 minutes:
1. sure - a credit card refund is no problem. Please HOLD while I look for instructions on how to do this.
2. sorry - upon further review, we can see that the refund check order was entered incorrectly so we have no choice but start from scratch and issue a credit card refund. Please HOLD while I get those instructions.
3. congrats - upon even futher review it seems that your refund is bigger than you initially thought! we'll begin processing your credit card refund if you can HOLD.
4. sorry - it seems that once a refund check order has been placed we are unable to issue a credit card refund.

WAIT A MINUTE!! You just told me that the refund check order was entered incorrectly...are now you're telling me that it's valid???

5. well, it now appears to have been entered correctly.

This company has shoddy products, incompetent customer service, and I STILL have not received my refund checks!

Steer clear of Spring Hill Nursery!

My friends and neighbors are all complimentary of my Spring Hill Roses.

I bought 6 Apricot Princess, 3 each of Red and Pink Freedom Hedge roses in March. The Apricot roses came in small pots while the Hedge roses were bareroot. All roses were well packed and appeared in great shape.

I planted all of them along a border with my neighbor, in a well prepared, soil amended flower bed with the recommended spacings. I used the Bayer all in one rose treatment when the leaves appeared.

Now they are blooming like crazy! The Apricot Princess Roses are so fragrant and a bee and butterfly magnet. Plus they are spreading vigorously.

I'm satisfied as a first time Spring Hill customer.

Ordering from Spring Hill was my first plant via mail expierence.

I decided to take advantage of their 1/2 off your order deal to order a large amount of plants for half of the price.

On April 12, 2009 I placed an order for $132.90 after the 1/2 off. Since the catalogs say ESS (expedited shipping service) I assumed that my order would arrive soon. It didn't arrive until the end of May/early June. After many calls to the company it seemed that certain items were on backorder then those would be in, and other items would be on backorder. However, I dont know if this is the norm for a large order placed during a time that an influx of orders was happening for the company. Not a complete negative it wouldnt stop me from ordering from them. I just plan to order earlier. Also, I recieved excellent customer service.

Items that I ordered that tanked were Mixed Dwarf Lupines, Brilliant Miniature Hollyhock, Blue Butterfly Delphinium, and Burgundy Gaillardia. It was easy to place a call (recieve excellent customer service), and have replacements or different items sent in their place. Replacement plants are due to arrive early October.

The Gay Butterflies Butterfly Weed was less than impressive. I recieved 3 plants one is white and grew to 24" tall. The other two are 6-8" tall and orange. I believe that they are regular/native butterfly weed. Which grows wild here in fields, and is identical to the mini plants I have.

Desmond carnation didnt bloom this year, and are slow to grow in general. However, I read on their customer reviews on their website that this is norm for people who had them blooming the 2nd yr.

Balloon flowers awesome!!! Ordering more with pink ones in the mix too.

I ordered the Blue and White Phlox Duet which was supposed to be potted. They ran out, and bareroot was sent. It is supposed to be 2 Caroline Vanderburg and 1 David phlox. I recieved two hot pink phlox that was supposed to be blue Caroline Vanderburg. The David has grown little, and hasnt bloomed so I shall see on the color. I didnt complain to company as pink is nice. But it wasnt what I ordered.

The Candy Lily hasnt bloomed yet either. Still waiting to see that plant in action.

Overall, Spring Hill has excellent customer service. Good sales/prices, good variety of perennials, and they were all shipped to me in excellent condition.

I would order from them again, and have.

Everything has taken off this year, and is growing well. I recommend planting in the fall with enough time for the plant to establish itself before winter. My plants that were planted last fall are doing way better this spring/summer than the plants I planted during spring time. I prefer fall planting!

I have ordered plants from Springhill for the past 4 years. Please remember that you get what you pay for. Springhill's plants are young and usually not established. This can work nicely to your advantage - the plants will grow, and usually thrive, in your native soil. Please refer to the plant size in the catalog. You will NOT receive gallon size plants. The plants will take a year or two to achieve their full potential. Springhill has always stood behind their plants. If something has failed to thrive, even two years after planting, all it takes is a phone call to their customer service center and new ones are on the way.

One thing to remember when planting bareroot plants, they have been out-of-the ground for quit a period of time. If you will soak them in water for at least an hour, it will hydrate them and they will not be so "shocky" when planted.

Please remember when you call Springhill that you are calling a call center. The representatives generally do not offer gardening advice. However, they have been kind, and courteous.

I ordered few items with SpringHill Nursery. Bargain bag of 6 ground covers - got 6 plants, but only 3 varieties and plants were in bad condition. 5 new heurcheras mix - 5 pots but only 2 or 3 varieties, very unspectacular, the pots not labeled. What I found really bad is that when I tried to post a negative review on these items it did not work, though I tried several times!!! Will not order from their site again and would advice not to believe the reviews posted there, maybe they do not post negative ones.

Positive rating based on 2007 experience. I purchased from SH in 2007 and my experience was very satisfactory. My order included many of the pre-planned sun gardens they had at that time as it was my first undertaking in gardening, was I glad I did. The pre-planned gardens made it so easy to create many nice professional but not run-of the-mill looks. All of my gardens have done very well and getting prettier every year. In additional to the pre-planned gardens, I also purchased several collections of their mini roses and freedom hedge roses, all are great show stoppers and almost carefree performers. Of cousre not all of what I ordered survived the first planting, but SH replaced them without hassle, as the season heated up, although some of the replacements arrived DOA, I didn't request for more replacements as it was alright for me since I was already happy with my more than 90% success rate from these plants.
Now in 2010, I'm a little late but ready to undertake another huge garden project again and placed a small order from SH and a rather larger order from its sister company Michigan Bulb (first time with these folks). These orders were placed just last week, so far the delivery estimate dates have been pushed back on a daily basis.....so I'll report back as this develops further, hopefully my rating will stay "Positive".
I also put in an order with BulbsDirect, great prices but yet to determine how the bulbs and service will fair. Will provide feedback on all separately when my orders arrive.

This is my first time ever ordering plants online. I placed an order on April 20th using the promotion code for 20 dollars off of 20 dollars to try them out. The money came out of my bank account 2 days after I placed my order. After seeing my arrival date move back day after day I emailed customer service to see if I could get a date my plants would be shipped and got no response. I waited a few days and emailed them again. I finally got a response today to my last email which was 5 days ago. The email reply I got was to let me know that all the plants I ordered where on back order and they were currently unable to provide an estimated ship date.
I replied back to the email to cancel my order and I do expect a prompt refund to my bank account since they don't know when they would get the plants in that I ordered or when they would ship once they did get them in. I am highly disappointed that I will not be getting my plants since one of them I have never found in local nurseries and was very happy to find it on their website.
I am sure they get quite a bit of orders but it should not take five days to reply to a customers email about their order. Also if you want to call them to find out about your order you have to call long distance. I don't understand in this day and age why they do not have an 800 number for customers to call to check on their orders?
One would think that a company that has been in business as long as they have would understand supply and demand especially when they do a promotion like the one I ordered under to get new customers. Over all not a good first time experience for me and I will stick to buying my plants locally.

Have ordered twice from them this spring. First time the plants came very quickly. All the plants were well labelled and easily identified. All the plants had good healthy roots and two were already sprouting. I put three of them in one gallon pots, since the garden they are going in isn't ready, yet. One I planted in place in my mailbox garden. All four came up well. The geranium has already bloomed beautifully for such a tiny little plant. The gallardia, which is out by the mailbox, has a bud on it right now.

Second order took longer to receive and have only received part of it. However, it is the peak season for nurseries so sort of expected that. I checked online once and was easily able to see that my order had not been sent yet. As soon as the first half of my order shipped I received an email so I could be on the look out for the package. Received the package today. All the plants look a little weary from the travel, but all have fine healthy roots. I have put them in pots also, as I have a lot of soil prep to do, but when the plants are on sale you have to buy them and then take good care of them until their new home is ready.

I have ordered from Spring Hill several times in the past. Once I lost most of the plants. They immediately replaced all of them without any hassle.

I think this is a great company. They do their best to send out healthy plants (can't control what happens to them in transit). Have replaced them without any hassles when they failed. They offer great sales several times a year and have a nice selection of plants. The information about the plants on their web site is accurate, to the best of my knowledge, and I used to order perennials for a garden center.

My only nit is that they are selling a few plants that in some areas of the country are considered invasive. They should mark them so that people in those areas won't buy them.

I ordered a number of items from Spring Hill in the spring of 2004 - a variegated weigela, a hardy carnation collection, and several clustered bellflowers.

I planted the weigela in what should have been favorable conditions according to both the info from Spring Hill and independent internet research. For some reason it died. Spring Hill sent me another one the following spring, which I planted in the same place, and which also died. Spring Hill sent me yet another one, which I planted elsewhere, in what should have been less than ideal conditions. It's living, but it hasn't flowered as much as I would have liked, but I think that's probably mostly due to the relative neglect with which it's been treated. Anyway, despite my being somewhat embarassed or reluctant, I asked twice for a replacement and Spring Hill sent me one. Kudos to them.

I also had to ask for replacements for some of the carnations as they did not survive the first year. Spring Hill sent me those replacements the following year, easy as pie - just called them and told them that some of the carnations died. All of the carnations died that next year, but I didn't bother calling for replacements because I decided I didn't really want them anymore.

The clustered bellflowers have been doing fine every year since they were planted.

I had a good enough experience with Spring Hill that I ordered (I think from them) a miniature rose bush collection a year or two later. I recall some of those dying and being replaced, too. Most of those are dead now, but that's a combination of rabbits and letting my wife be in charge of them.

Honestly I'm having a hard time choosing Positive or Negative on this company so here I am Neutral. I have just as many good things to say about this company as well as bad.

Positive
They are a 24 hour customer service line.
They stand by their satisfaction policy.
They use UPS shipping and give tracking numbers.
They send you an email letting you know when your item was shipped.
75% of most bulbs and bare root plants they send you do grow.
Yes I will still do business with them again.

Negative
Don't buy trees from this company without knowing the following:
1. If you think your going to get a nice thick healthy tall tree. Your in for a rude awaking. Buy your trees where you can see them in person.
2. Most plants they send are bare root. That means they send you a tree that is sleeping. It arrives as a twig/stick with NO dirt. This can be quite alarming if you never ordered before.
3. Their shipping / quality assurance department, You would think they have the visually impaired working for these departments. The quality of the trees are very poor. And often arrives broken, dis-formed, shorter then advertised or dead.
4. They do stand by there satisfaction policy however it takes awhile for the item to be reshipped.
5. I had my order reshipped quite often from this company and it's partner company's 4 to 5 times. The percentage rating I give is 3 out of 10 or a 30% chance of getting a tree that will be satisfactory at best.

Check your time zone if you want a clear, knowledgeable speaking person on the phone. They out source there calls.

All the positives are good enough for me. Buying tree's are a nightmare. There customer service can be a little more knowledgeable but over all there policy and hours make up for it.

I have placed several smaller orders from Spring Hill over the last year. The plants have grown nicely and I wouldn't hesitate to place further orders. I had one plant that never came up and it was promptly replaced. My only suggestion for Spring Hill would be to speed up the response to customer service e-mails. It generally takes several days which, in my opinion, is longer than it should.

After awhile, most of the plants wilted and died. I contacted SPRING HILL and asked for a partial refund of $69. They emailed me and said the "checks in the mail" To make a long story short, it has been more than 6 months and I have not received my refund. Worse yet, they now do not reply to my emails. On several occasions, they told me that the check was issued and mailed and the check was reissued and my address verified. I never received.

Posted on April 18, 2010, updated April 24, 2010
I live in an inner-city environment, and wanted to plant some small perennial gardens on my tiny patch of green. There aren't real nurseries less than hour's drive from my house, and those that exist charge a premium because of the lack of competition. In addition, their selection was limited and the staff seemed to busy to help someone like me who really didn't know what she was looking for.

I became interested in ordering from Spring Hill Nursery instead of buying locally because the webpage was easy to understand for a novice gardener like me. They had many specials that allowed me to order all the plants I wanted for my garden, and the selection to let me substitute some plants that were out of my price range.

I decided to order from SHN because when I called to ask a shipping question, I spoke to a real person who took the time to answer all of my questions. Again, I live in a city environment, so I was very worried about the delivery man leaving the plants on my stoop. The customer service person explained to me that all the plants are very small, how they are packaged and shipped, double checked the appropriateness of the plants for my growing zone, and helped me figure out a delivery plan that worked for my job schedule. Every call to costumer service since then has gone without a problem.

I will post again when I receive my plants and can see the condition they arrive in. But so far I am very happy with the experience.


On April 23rd, 2010, LauraNewbie changed the rating from positive to negative and added the following:

After receiving half of my order, I have to change my review to negative. While the initial customer service at Spring Hill was wonderful, their execution was poor.

First, when I placed the order, I spoke to someone in customer service about whether the plants could be shipped to the local UPS station, as I live in an inner city environment and I was worried about the plants being stolen if left on the porch. I was told that a note would be put in my account that the packages were to stay at the UPS station and not be delivered to the home address, and when I received my UPS tracking number, to call and check with UPS to make sure they held the package at the shipping station. This was an easy situation to accommodate, they told me. However, when my package shipped, I found that no note was put in my account, the package was being shipped to my billing address, and that, since UPS considers packages the property of the "sender" until they try to deliver once, there was nothing I could do about the situation. I called customer service at SHN to ask if they could call UPS to have the package rerouted, but I was told that they couldn't do that and they wouldn't even try because they have no ability to make outgoing calls. Basically, I was told that it was out of their hands, and that I just need to hope things worked out all right. I had to leave work early that day to try to intercept the UPS deliveryman. The package had been left at my door.

Second, I told an approximate shipping date on their website, and planned to have a gardener come several days after the last possible arrival date. He would help me make the garden beds and we would plant the plants together on the weekend after the plants were schedule to arrive. Then, I rechecked the status page to find that shipping had been moved up almost a week, leaving me in a snafu about planting because the plants would now arrive long before the garden beds were prepared. But, thinking things happen, I moved up the date the landscaper would come and thoughts the problems were over.

However, I checked the website again, and found that they had split the order into two shipments, nearly 2 weeks apart. So now half of my plants are arriving after the landscaper is booked, and half arrived a week too early and needed to be stored instead of planted immediately. This all could have been avoided if Spring Hill would have just stuck to the original shipping date. Furthermore, when I called to ask if they could at least have the 2nd half of the shipment sent to the UPS station, they told me that the packaged had already been packed and sent, and again there was nothing they could do about it. However, regardless of what the customer service rep said about the status of the package, the plants were not actually sent out (according to their UPS tracking label) until four days AFTER I called asked them to at least fix the shipping address on 2nd half of the package. So, again, I was basically told to deal with the problem, and their company continued to do whatever they wanted to do.

Finally, when I received the package, I double checked the packing slip to make sure they at least sent me what they said they would. At first (being a novice gardener), I was concerned about the plants. I knew what to expect with bare roots, and was initially happy that each plants was packaged individually and clearly labelled. However, it quickly became apparent that the quality of the plants varied greatly from package to package. Some plants were well-packed in soil/sawdust and the root systems were large. Others were small, poorly wrapped and I was worried that they would die or dessicate before I could plant them. Never-the-less, the packing slip was accurate for what was in the box. HOWEVER, now that I have the shipping information for the 2nd shipment, it is apparent that they haven't completed the order! 24 plants are missing from the 1st shipment (I ordered 2 phlox collections with 12 plants each), and they are not listed on the packing slip for the second shipment. Ie, I will not receive them in time for the planting day with the gardener, and I likely won't receive them at all unless I call SHN customer service AGAIN.

So, overall, while the purchasing side of the transaction was smooth, everything after that has been frustrating. Customer service was inaccurate in the information they provided about shipping. My shipping date was moved too often to plan planting around. . My order was incorrectly filled, and half of it is missing. Too many calls to customer service were necessary to receive the order I wanted. And with the variation in the quality in the roots I received, I also wonder how many of these plants will grow....which will of course require further calls to customer service.

I would not recommend this company to others.

Visited the site and was offered a deal I could not pass up. $10 off a $20 order and free shipping. My three bushes came (for $3.41 cents each delivered) and they look very green, moist, and healthy. They are a little bigger than I was expecting based on the price, about 3/4 foot bushed out and all in their pots with dirt. Even the rose bush looks fresh and has green leaves all over it. I feel like I got a great deal. I am trying out different companies this year, and to be honest, these plants from Springhill are actually the best looking and best value I have received so far.

My daughter ordered a pre-planned shade garden for her yard 2 years ago from Spring Hill, and all of the plants are doing great. I was ready to replace sod with perennials this year and I ordered a very large number of plants for the first time this year from Spring Hill Nursery. The plants I received are beautiful. I wanted the pre-planned perennial gardens as I didn't want to take the time to design my own, or spend the time (or gasoline) shopping for plants to duplicate the garden plan I had seen.
The pre-planned garden offered in the catalog was just what I wanted. I am in the middle of planting, and the plants are beautiful. I received them about 4 days ago, and they appear to have grown just since I received them.
I also had no packing slip or planting directions in the box (it had been opened for inspection and apparantly the paperwork was somehow lost in the shuffle). I emailed Springhill and within 48 hours I had a copy of the planting instructions for both of my pre-planned gardens, with a note to remind me that all of the plants are guaranteed. Their quick response, and the beautiful condition of the plants is greatly appreciated!

I purchased a weephing lavendar redbud. The picture looked so pretty, but the tree was $69. I used a $25 coupon, which brought the price down. The stick arrived within a few days of notification. The stick was pliable, so I went ahead and planted it. It has been several weeks, and I think I am finally seeing something where the branches had been cut. Considering the cost of the tree, and the size, I cannot say it was a good value. I will have to wait and see how it does over the next few months and decide whether to change my review from neutral to negative or positive. I am a little reluctant to purchase anything else from them, but really wanted a weeping lavendar.

I called this company to ask why I should order from them and pay 2-5 dollars more per plant than my local nursery, plus shipping.

When I asked whether anyone at the company could answer that question, she said no. A business that cannot articulate why their product is better and worth the additional cost is suspect.

My 21 Freedom Hedge Rose's arrived a little earlier than I anticipated; however, I was ready to plant them once they shipped. The roses were in excellent condition with an extensive root system and many thick and healthy canes. The roses were beginning to come out of their dormant stage and were already shooting out new growth. They have only been in the ground for about a week; however, they look healthy and are continuing to show new growth.

I had a very positive experience with SHN and will be doing business with them again.

Be extremely wary of this company!!

We ordered from SH ten years ago, despite my husband's misgivings, because we had a shady area in our yard and I wanted an easy-care garden at a reasonable cost. We ordered a shade foundation garden and it is still gorgeous.

Based on that experience, we ordered three ornamental grasses from SH last year. When they arrived, after a long shipping delay, they were just dry, dead-looking bundles of roots. Nevertheless, I planted them according to instructions and kept them well-watered, but a month later they had shown no sign of any growth at all. I called SH and the customer service rep would not even consider issuing a refund because "I hadn't given the plants a chance."

We went to a local nursery and bought three similar ornamental grasses and planted them near the SH grasses so our planting area wouldn't look so empty and ridiculous. Another month went by and the locally-purchased grasses were thriving and growing well and the three SH grasses were still dead little bundles about two inches high. I called once again and another customer service rep refused to discuss a refund. At that point, I gave up because we weren't out that much money.

This spring, our locally-purchased grasses are gorgeous and quickly sending up lovely green growth, while our SH grasses are - you guessed it - still tiny little dead bundles. I'm giving up on the SH grasses and the company itself. It's really a shame because I love my shade garden so much but I'm not risking any more money with Spring Hill.

After some heavy debate, some encouragement from a friend, and placing an order last year then canceling it due to fear of what I had read about the companies. I placed a mail order with Springhill and Brecks Nurseries in early to mid March of this year and received an email shortly after with my order information and a link to check the status of my order from Brecks. When I checked the status it stated that my shipment would ship on 4/8/10. a couple days later after not receiving an email from Springhill I called and asked if they had received my order form. After looking in their computer system she stated that she had an order and continued to tell me what was in the order...It was what I had ordered with Breck's NOT what I had ordered with Springhill (I did not know that these companies were sister companies) I told the representative as much and she stuttered completely to only state that they had NOT received the order for S.H. The next morning I had an email confirmation. I also checked the status of this order and it stated that it would ship on 4/8/10. I was happy and thought WOW that IS pretty fast. To my disappointment the next morning the delivery date had changed. Then the NEXT morning it changed again .I then sent an email to both companies asking for a solid delivery date and I received a email back from both companies that were verbatim to the other. Here's what they said. Private info has been deleted.
"Dear E., Thank you for your email. I apologize for the inconvenience. I have reviewed your account and see that you should receive your order by mid April.
If we can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact us. Sincerely, Customer Service"

The very next day I checked the status' again to only find that the delivery dates have been changed again. Now I am looking at getting some plants in very late April and early May. I wonder what the need to changed the dates were since this question was asked in my email but never answered. I would like to develop a good relationship with these companies but I do not see that happening at this point. The longer I wait for these plants, the hotter it gets. I could have already bought my plants at a local (very reputable nursery) and been done with my gardens. We will see how this turns out and if I remain a customer.

I haven't received any of the plants that I ordered from this company yet, so I can not say anything for or against that... However, I'm finding it odd that I got an "expected delivery" date and every time I check the status of my order the date becomes later and later. Originally it said I could expect the items at the end of this month... a couple of days later it was the beginning of April... and now it's pushed back to late April/early May! I understand supply and demand, but they shouldn't have an expected date that changes every time you go to look at your status. It would be better to originally give a late delivery date ,then if the order comes "early" it would be much more exciting than the disappointment of the delivery date moving further and further away.


On April 2nd, 2010, YoyoMa changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

I changed my rating from "neutral" to positive... I only had it at neutral because I hadn't received the plants yet, so it wasn't really fair for me to give it a rating either way.

WELL, the good news is that even though my expected delivery date kept getting pushed back farther and farther to the point that it went from a March delivery to May.... I went back and checked again and suddenly it had been bumped up again to April and I received the plants yesterday! Yay!

Now, I was pre-warned by my friend who gave me the Spring Hill catalogue that the plants will arrive tiny, so I was prepared for what I received. And I'm happy to report that ALL of the plants are alive and look very healthy! And I ordered a lot of plants (a pre-planned drought tolerant sun garden, 3 early red hot pokers, and 6 salvia) and they came well packed and protected from moving around in the box. My favorite right now is the fragrant lavender, because it just smells sooooo good.

I do have to use a bit of patience, because after planting I stood back to take a look at my "masterpiece" garden, and because the plants are so tiny it looks like I have a bunch of errant weeds growing... But I know they will come in beautifully! And I am very pleased to know about the lifetime guarantee--- I will definitely buy from Spring Hill again in the future!

Right after placing my order, I had to contact their customer service department as the $20 offer didn't reflect in my checkout and my payment was $20 higher than I had expected. At that point I was really worried it was a scam.. However, my call to customer service went through quickly and the reperesentative was so nice about getting the problem corrected.

I received my plants really quickly. I'm no expert on quality of the plants or anything but they seemed to be just as healthy as I purchase at local nurseries with only one exception. Out of the 12 plants I ordered, was extremely happy with 11. I got a bunch of things I had never seen before and the vast majority of the plants seem to be thriving.

I decided to try and give them another chance. I ordered 2 honeyberry plants and paid about $7 in shipping. When the plants arrived they were very healthy and larger then I expected for the price. The price from Spring Hill Nursery was $10 less per plant for the same size plants that I had bought from different nursery. I had paid more money for the plants and shipping from the other vendor then I did with Spring Hill. I am very glad that I gave them a try. I will order more plants from them in the future.
