This spring was my first order with Almost Eden. My plants were shipped on the day requested and arrived in excellent shape. Throughout there was great communication. Will for sure order from here again.

I left my earlier comment without giving the business a chance to remedy the situation. Upon learning of my unhappiness, they promptly issue me a refund and let me know that had I voiced my concerns with them directly, that they would have worked with me to either replace or refund the plants immediately. My previous comment was unfair to the business because I did not communicate with them effectively, nor did I give them the chance to make things better. I appreciate that they issued me a refund within hours of learning of my discontent.

Just received my first order from this outstanding company, and couldn't be more pleased. Seconds after ordering online, John contacted me to confirm the best shipping date. Within two days I had my gorgeous, generously-sized gardenias, one of which is loaded with buds! Packaging was both secure and intelligent, and both plants were still moist. You just can't get better than perfect, and I can't wait to add more beautiful plants from this wonderful grower. Thank you so much!

I ordered a 2.5 inch fig cutting. My first experience with online plant shopping. I was expecting a branch that would require rooting hormones, baggies, regulated temperature, etc.

What a wonderful company. I ordered two jasmines from them in February and they both arrived extremely well packed ( they are perishable! ) and in excellent condition. As a bonus, I placed the order late at night. One order, I thought. I received an email asking if I wanted 2 orders of two plants each or was that an error? I was very impressed! I cannot say enough to too much good things about their product, shipping AND customer service.

I ordered two honeyvines. The plants arrived on time and were in good shape. I will be ordering from this company again in the future.

One of BEST experiences I've had with online plant shopping. Super fast shipping, excellent care with wrapping and shipping plants and they stayed in contact with me plus the size of plants ordered were much larger (and healthier) than any other place I've done business with. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I will be a return shopper and will be letting the many plant groups know the quality and care and friendly service provided.

Thanks so much! Ordered a Passiflora Lady Margaret and it was huge and already has several flower buds on it. Wrapped very carefully and there was no damage done to the plant during shipping. It actually came earlier than they said to expect, and John was very helpful and quick when answering my questions through email. I'll definitely be ordering from here again.

Although I live in Zone 6B, I plant some tropicals every summer. Almost Eden carries some of the harder-to-find varieties that I love. This year's order of 6 russelia equisetiformis (firecracker fern) arrived yesterday, safely packed and brimming with fresh greenery. The owner, John, answers every question and really cares about his customers.

I bought 7 brugmansias in 4" pots and love them! They all lost most their leaves during shipping but that was to be expected, but they were robust and pot bound (which is good). I repotted them last week and roots are already growing down the bottom of the 1 gallon nursery containers and are just starting to flush new leaves under some grow lights. They have outpaced so called 1 gallon bare roots I bought off ebay.

I am very, very impressed! Placed my first order with them and just recorded my pants. They were by far the nicest plants I have gotten from a mail order, well packaged and despite being delicate, blooming! I will definitely order from them again.

I LOVE Almost Eden Plants. I have ordered from them several times so far, and each order packaged and shipped carefully, and the plants are healthy and much larger than expected. They have a great selection to choose from, even several rare plants. This place is in my Top 10.

I live in Colorado. First time ordering. My plants were received in excellent condition. The plants were of high quality. Their plants are reasonably priced. And the selection of native plants from southeastern Texas is good. Highly recommend.

Just got my 2nd order today, and again I'm impressed. My plant was a lot larger then I expected and even blooming. My plant from my 1st order, a Ceropegia sandersonii, has grown so much, I can't believe it. When I first got, the vine was about 2 and half feet long, and now it's as tall as me when I unwind the vine, which I'm 5'6. Hasn't bloomed yet, but that might be a light issue, this spring/summer I'll put it outside instead of leaving it inside. I love how big the plants are, if you order something in a 4 inch pot, your gonna get a plant that's very well established in that 4 inch pot.
They're also the only plant nursery that puts 'Live plant' and 'perishable' on the boxes, and comes with a copy of a agriculture certificate. The plants are wrapped in cardboard sheet and put into a cardboard box, with a wet paper towel wrapped around the soil and taped down very good. Not a leaf was messed up.
I look forward to ordering from them again in the near future!! 10 out of 10 stars!!

I ordered camellia's along with other plants twice from this company--once two years ago and again last month. Both times I received beautiful plants that were well packed. My older plants are all thriving and doing well. Thank you, I will definitely order again.

What a great company and extraordinary customer service. This was my first time ordering from Almost Eden and I will definitely be back. I ordered pentas and lantana to be shipped to Michigan in November (for overwintering butterflies), and John was so accommodating - he shipped my plants early, double-boxed it for extra warmth (the temps were quite cold here), and even substituted one of the non-blooming varieties I ordered with one that had flowers. I received my order in two days, and the plants were gorgeous - huge and all flowering. He even sent an extra plant at no charge! The prices were great, too. All around awesome experience.

I placed another order for 17 plants -primarily for a shady area in the backyard - and, as before, each plant looks great! They only took 2 days to arrive (shipped Monday, received Wednesday morning) and I could not be more pleased with the quality or the packaging. Almost Eden is fantastic!

I placed another order this year and, like before, every plant is exceptional! I particularly am enjoying both the bananas and the variegated costus - lovely, lovely plants! The butterfly gingers have now quadrupled in size (amazing how quickly these are growing), the costus are 3 times the size and the bananas are putting on height rapidly - all in about 10 weeks in the ground! Still a 10 star nursery and I will definitely order from them again and again. Thank you, John!!!!

I received another order from Almost Eden yesterday - the 2 plants were HUGE and were packaged so well that not even a leaf was broken. The customer service and attention to detail by these folks is the best in the business. Thanks to John, his family and staff for providing us with beautiful, healthy plants that aren't available locally. Hope to order from you for many more years!!!

Wow, could not wait to review this company. I have been looking for a Ginger Lily since I have a fragrant garden. Had ordered and received from another vendor some bulbs early this year but none came up. I found Almost Eden and ordered a plant in a 4 inch pot. They arrived today. And again WOW. Everything from the price, to the shipping and packaging and the plant was above my expectations. The plant is healthy and the packaging was perfect. I will order again from these people.

I ordered a Pineapple verbena a couple weeks ago from this company. When I received it, the soil was bone dry and the plant dessicated. I sent an email to the company, since it was Saturday, I didn't really expect a response. I heard from them within an hour, offering a new plant or a refund. I chose another plant. It arrived today, with ample moisture, and is gorgeous! This is exemplary customer service in my book! I will not hesitate to buy from them again!

This is the first vendor I have used from Dave's gardens garden watchdog. (How I missed the garden watchdog site after 40 years of gardening is beyond me) In all those years, this was. The BEST service and product I have ever gotten. I have ordered mail order plants annually-ish for 15 years and have never been so impressed. In fact, I have often been underwhelmed.

I have ordered from many, many companies. I have never had an with the plants arrive in perfect condition until I received my recent order from Almost Eden. I was and still am in awe of the care they took in packaging the plants to assure they arrived in such a wonderful condition. Not one grain of soil nor one leaf on a plant was lost. I highly, highly recommend this company.

This is my second order with John at Almost Eden over the last several months. I am very happy with both of my orders. The plants arrived in great condition, healthy, very well packaged and larger than expected. I ordered a bunch of camellias and they all had flowers and flower buds on them. He was aware of weather issues and willing to hold the plants until it was safe to ship them. Great communication, great plants, great plant selection, highly recommended.

I had a very pleasant experience buying plants this autumn from John at Almost Eden. He was incredibly helpful, very aware of weather, and was great at communicating so we could work around weather issues. When the plants arrived, they where far larger than I expected, and I was, and am, very happy with my purchases. Both plants are thriving.

Ordered 4 plants - customer service and contact was impeccable. Plants came and were huge, healthy, and beautiful. Placed another big order and I am just as thrilled as the first time. John called me to discuss one of the plants he was sending. I don't know why he was concerned - it's my favorite. They are all beautiful. Because the website says 3.5" pots, I was skeptical that the plants would be tiny. I was wrong. They are 12-20" tall. I even called John after receiving my order to ask for some planting advice and he explained everything to me. Answered my questions with detail. The contact I had with this company, the care, the packaging, EVERYTHING was how you would hope for.

3rd order safely out of the box and ready for the garden. i absolutely love this nursery and the people working there. had a nice telephone chat with them the other evening. they are real people with really great plants! hooray!

ordered two Gardenia 'Veitchii' last friday and received them this morning. WOW! amazing size and health and john just couldn't be nicer to deal with. i will be back and hopefully more often!
btw, the person who posted the negative recently because john wouldn't back a plant for a whole year, i just have to say that i can't believe anyone but the big box stores could possibly back a plant for a year. i certainly wouldn't. sometimes a plant just doesn't make it and that's the way it goes. anyway, it seems unfair to give a negative rating in this case and i hope it doesn't deter anyone else from ordering from almost eden. they are the BEST!

placed another order recently and as always, absolutely NO complaints.
i LOVE this company.
keep up the good work!
