I'm definitely a repeat customer. Plants always packed beautifully and transport well. GREAT customer service. Have recommended this site to several people and they, too, are very well satisfied.

Have continued to order from them. Last order for 13 plants received end of April 2017 during the week I specified shipment. All plants looked great and healthy and are doing well.

THIS NURSERY IS ABSOLUTELY SUPERB.I've bought many plants from various nurseries and most were adequate some were diseased or otherwise inadequate.ALMOST EDEN has just sent me four of the healthiest ,best packaged,rapidly shipped and reasonably priced plants I've ever received by mail order.

Oh, how very badly I wanted a fringed milkweed vine (funastrum cynanchoides) for my pollinator garden. Considering my middling success in cold stratifying other milkweeds, and the cost of these particular seeds, a nursery offering the plant was ideal. Imagine my delight when I finally found Almost Eden after (literal) hours of web searching. So why get one when you can get four, right? I figured I'd end up killing at least half. Almost Eden shipped them promptly and they arrived quickly, with excellent packaging. The plants themselves were well rooted, multiple vines per plant already 6 inches to 1 foot long. And I haven't killed one yet! A testament to the plant vigor rather than my gardening skills.

I ordered from Almost Eden largely because of the many positive reviews here, and was not disappointed. The Aloe vera plants they shipped were all larger than expected and very well packaged.

What a GREAT experience I had purchasing plants at Almost Eden recently. The several plants arrived in two days and every one was beautiful: such fresh, healthy, strong plants, they couldn't have been better. And the packing! Unbelievable the care and attention given to make sure they arrived in the best possible condition. And John---well, John is my new best friend. He not only answered myriad questions before I ordered, but took all the time I needed to walk through the process of placing my first order, then called me back to see if I had special instructions for the carrier (I did) and he made sure the boxes were marked accordingly. He is such a delight to talk with. I am absolutely recommending Almost Eden to everyone I know---the selection, ordering process, staff, personal attention to detail to make sure the customer is happy, the excellent plants--all perfect, could not be better. Thanks, John and staff!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have ordered brugmansia and iochroma several times in the last 2 years from Almost Eden. They are large, beautiful, healthy and not expensive. The packing is superb, and they rarely lose a leaf.

Nothing but positive experience with this company. I ordered 4 passiflora, one Incense and 3 Possum Purple. All arrived extremely vibrant and healthy looking, packed perfectly, no bends or cracks. Out of all the passiflora vines I have ordered this season, these were by far the best. Thick, strong stems, and strongly rooted in the pots. They have also been the quickest to acclimate and send out new growth. Just happy plants! Maybe because I am in a closer proximity to where they are grown? I don't know but will definitely order from AlmostEden any time. Thank you for making this such a pleasurable transaction when so many are disappointing!

I ordered 3 plants from Almost Eden. Yellow ' El Capitolio ' Hibiscus, Pink Turks Cap Hibiscus, and White Turks Cap Hibiscus. Plants were well rooted and healthy and ready to upsize when I received them. Communication with the company was superb. I liked everything so much I went back and ordered a Pakistan mulberry. Great company and great people.

I ordered 3 Dragons Blood Sedum a few days ago - they were very responsive when I changed my order from a different sedum. The order came within a few days and the plants were in great condition!

I ordered two viburnum macrocephalum (Chinese snowball viburnum) plants from Almost Eden. None of my local nurseries carried these and they seem to be relatively hard to find compared to the more common European snowball plants. My order arrived via USPS priority mail earlier than expected. I took delivery on the third day after it was shipped. The plants arrived in really good condition, very well packed - no broken branches or wilting. Reasonable pricing.

Almost Eden is a great plant store. Where else can you find Russelia plants or large Calliandra plants in bloom at great prices? The Porterweed plants were two feet tall too. Happily, I can't complain.

I recently placed my first order with Almost Eden and was extremely pleased. They shipped out my plants very quickly and I got them in 2 days despite being 4 states away. The plants are very healthy looking and were well packed for shipment. I look forward to ordering more from them in the future.

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.

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.
