I just recieved my shipment of hostas and an apple mint plant. As always, the packaging was the best of any company that I use. The plants arrived in wonderful condition.

Order arrived at the time I requested. Plants were nicely packaged and each covered by a mesh sleeve which allowed the plants to breath but stay protected. Good and healthy, these plants were nicely sized for the price.

I received my recent order today. Everything was perfect, as usual. Much to my surprise I received 8 plants instead of the 6 that I ordered! Someone found two Carex Everdi that were unavailable and they were sent to me free of charge!

There is a reason Santa Rosa Gardens is a Watchdog 30 company. When they say "100% satisfied, they mean it. I have ordered from this wonderful company in the past and have always been extremely pleased.

WOW again. I usually make most of my purchases from Santa Rosa during their end of season sales, so I had forgotten how really great their plants are in the spring. I'm always happy with the sale plants, but the plants in this shipment couldn't be better! Over the past couple of years, you've become the only online plant company I purchase from. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Great place to get perennials and a great price!

So absolutely suprised and delighted by my Santa Rosa purchase! I ordered Dianthus Brilliant Star and Coreopsis auriculata Nana. All of the plants were beautifully and meticulously packed. And the plants were large, gorgeous and healthy! I can't wait to order from them again.

I'm writing here to give Santa Rosa Gardens a great thumbs up! I placed an order for four of their small fountain grasses called "Piglet". They were shipped and packed very well and the plants were healthy and of good size, but then I noticed that a part of one of the plants looked suspiciously like crab grass. I called Santa Rosa and the lady answering apologized for the shipment and said she'd send another as a free replacement.

My experience with Santa Rosa Gardens has been excellent. I had been using Bluestone Perennials for years but their prices have become too high. So far, I've placed two orders with Santa Rosa and the plants have been very healthy looking, packaged well and their prices are far more reasonable. I'm so glad I discovered them as they have become my "go to" source for online ordering.

I ordered several more plants in 2013 - Aquilegia canadensis, Buddleia davidii Black Knight, and Lobelia cardinalis. As with before, everything arrived on time and in perfect condition.

Thanks so much for the comments and for your business. Thanks also for understanding about the short delay with the Panicum grasses. Panicums are one of the last grasses out of dormancy for us and we don't like to ship until they are showing good growth. "

I don't know if I have the words to describe everything that is good about Santa Rosa gardens.They give you the best in customer service.The plants are always delivered on time.The plants you receive are always packaged the correct way and always in great condition.Now for my own experience.I have only been gardening for a couple of years.But I have over 3000s.f.of new gardens.I have looked for something to take my mind off of things I have had to deal with for over thirty years.One day I took an interest in gardening and have spent almost all of my time researching gardening from A-Z.I used a couple of other nurseries with not so good results.Then I found Santa Rosa and I will never go any where else.I want to thank them for all you have done for me.Gardening has put the smile back on this old warriors face.

great customer service and great products deserves recognition. Once again, SRG comes through with both. Their packaging methods is superior and I never lose soil as a result. Jude and SRG are well deserving of a top 30 spot!

In more than 30 years of mail order plants, SRG is hands-down the all-time best I have seen. Plants, prices, packing, & service are superb.

I recently placed two orders during their end of season sale. Most were 4" pots for less than others charge for 2" pots. I hade one variegated plant that had reverted and they sent an immediate replacement. Service is fast and plants were perfect. They have 7.99 flat rate shipping unlike others where the shipping costs as much as the plants! I got two big boxes sent packed full of plants for 7.99 shipping and handling and they send you an e-mail when they've shipped. Their packing is as as good as or better than most also. Jude Groninger is awesome and answers any e-mails immediately.

I found these guys on Dave's and figured I would give a try. I placed my order on Sunday night and the plants arrived onThursday with timely email notifications and at great prices. They have an excellent variety of ornamental grasses and perennials The packaging was perfect and the plants very healthy and a very generous size. I wouldl order from them again.

I ordered several plants from Santa Rosa Gardens at incredibly low prices at the end-of-season sale-not really expecting much at those prices. I spoke to Jude who was very courteous. She emailed the tracking number as soon as my package was dispatched. Within days I received beautiful, large plants that were in excellent condition, as they were very well packed. In addition to my order I received a beautiful new Gaura cultivar as a free gift! I have been mailordering plants for over 17 years and this is the best company I have ever dealt with.

I placed a third time order with them,It all arrived quickly in good shape.All as good or better than the first time,with that, I am extremely pleased!!!

I gave SRG a try because they had so many good reviews. However, when I saw their prices, I felt it had to be too good to be true and they must send little seedlings. I was so surprised when my first order arrived. Great packing, and nice sized healthy plants. SRG is a great find and I am redoing the garden beds with much of their product. The 80% sale forced me to do that because I ordered so many plants! :)

I have ordered several times from Santa Rosa gardens. they always excel in quality of plants, packing, shipping and COST. I just ordered about 15+ plants from their year end sale. All of the plants were good size, healthy, well packed and shipped quickly. I have nothing but great things to say about Santa Rosa.My only suggestion is to add more rare plants/tropicals to their list, then I won't have to shop from 10 different places. I could just get most of my plants from Santa Rosa Gardens :-)

I just received my first order from Santa Rosa Gardens, and I was blown away! The plants are large and healthy. The packaging is superb. The end-of-season prices were fantastic. Regular prices are very good, too, especially considering the size and quality of plants compared to other mail order companies. I've sworn off mail ordering plants several times in the past, but I'm so happy with the 47 plants I just received that I ordered 37 more. Santa Rosa Gardens is now my go-to mail order company.

I ordered Coreopsis 'Cosmic Eye.' They have sent it twice and I still don't have the correct plant. I don't like leaving negative feedback, but they seem to have a problem getting the correct plants sent out. Also, the other plants I received from them this year were tiny. Example: Hydrangea 'Zebra' - It was 3 inches tall and cost $9.99. It died and there was nothing I could do to save it. It was just a tiny cutting!

As another reviewer said their prices seem too good to be true, especially the sales.....what great deals. The plants were bigger than I expected for the price. I placed 3 or 4 orders this year (probably around 100 plants total) and even with this extremely hot weather we are having here everything is doing well. Will definitely order again.

I received another order from Santa Rosa Gardens. One of the plants wasn't doing well when it arrived and before the weekend was over, didn't look like it would live. On Monday, I called Customer Service, the plant was mailed out the next day and arrived before the week was out, happy and healthy. I have ordered several times from Santa Rosa. This is the first time I have ever had a problem with anything I received from Santa Rosa and I couldn't ask for a easier recovery from a problem. Other online plant vendors should take a lesson from them in customer service, packaging and quality of plants. Keep up the good work, Santa Rosa. A very happy customer!

I am so pleased with buying my plants from Santa Rose Gardens. They are by far the best online nursery on the internet. After my first purchase just to try them out, I have been a repeat customer.

Wow, what can I say, The plants where shipped on Monday and they arrived on Wednesday. From Florida to Washington State in three days, now that's fast. And, to top it off they added a free gift of another plant. Now that is service. Thanks for everything. You guys are the greatest!

WOW, what service!!! My original order was placed 3/26/12, ordered 9 ornamental grasses, it took about 1 week to arrive. I contacted customer service 5/05/12 via email to inform them, 2 didn't make it and a 3rd one was barely holding on. I received replacements for all 3 on 5/10/12 and they are bigger and stronger than my originals! I couldn't believe it! I'm very skeptical about online nurseries due to horrible experiences in the past, but Santa Rosa Gardens has earned my trust--Don't be afraid to order from them!

I ordered 6 plants last year. After a weird winter and spring, two didn't make it. Asked about returns and almost instantly got an email telling when the replacements would be shipped! I was impressed when I got the plants and even more impressed with their customer service. I hope I can find some more room so I can order more plants. Selection is great, packing was as well and the customer service? Well, it was outstanding! Other than the few annuals I think from here out, this is where I will purchase my plants.

This is my third or fourth experience with Santa Rosa Gardens, and, with one minor exception, all plants survived the trip from CA to TX splendidly. The year one plant appeared sickly upon arrival, and after unsuccessful attempts to revive it, a newly patented Dancing Dolls salvia, the staff without hesitation shipped another at no extra cost to me. I heartily recommend Santa Rosa Gardens without qualifications!
