just received some 'first frost' hostas from these guys. plants arrived in great shape, excellent size and health. shipping is expensive compared to 'bare root' stock, but then again, these aren't bare root, heh. i'll be ordering from this company again for my shade garden. PLUS they put up w/ me doing a phone order due to my internet security paranoia-*always* a plus in my book :)

Just received another order from Garden Crossings. Plants arrived in perfect condition. Their packaging is exceptional. Heidi was very, very helpful in getting my order processed and shipped out on schedule despite a glitch w/my credit card co. I highly recommend this nursery. I have always received healthy, very well grown plants at reasonable prices.

This was my first order with them, so I only ordered 3 plants. They arrived today, and they are HUGE. Also in excellent condition. Will definitely be back for more.

Great selection and quick service. Their plants are expensive, but you get what you pay for - they are huge, healthy plants, well packaged for delivery.

For 2014 I ordered two clematis, C. viticella Venosa Violacea and C. Blue Angel. Plants were well leafed out, healthy and packaged with great care.

This company ROCKS! The website is great: nicely laid out website, easy to negotiate, and informative too...if you order from them, things seem to ship out on the next Monday, which is really nice....on my first order, I ordered on Sunday, and the items shipped the next day, and then I received them that Thursday...fantastic!

I ordered two daylilies in early August. They were shipped growing in 5 inch pots with very well developed root systems. Within six weeks of planting they were blooming.

products were shipped in a timely manner. Compared to other plants I've bought online, these were large and healthy.

I just received and opened my order of three knock-out roses. They are beautiful! Green leaves, moist soil, healthy stems. I am especially impressed since the plants had to travel from Michigan to South Carolina and they still arrived in perfect shape. The packaging is very sturdy but also very easy to deal with. I am very pleased that they do not use plastic peanuts or shredded paper. Clean up was a snap. I will be back!

I was VERY pleased with the size, quality, and condition of the plants I received. I originally felt their prices were high compared to other sellers but I will not hesitate to order from this company again because their plants are wonderful! Large and healthy plants. You definitely get what you pay for here! Quick shipping as well! Thank you.

It's fall and the plants I bought last spring have grown beautifully! They've doubled or more in size, and they're as healthy as any I've grown. I just ordered a bunch more that were 40% off due to end of season. I expect they'll be just as nice as the plants I ordered earlier.
On October 15th, 2005, revclaus added the following:
They are! The Clementine Red columbine were about 1-1/2 feet tall with a good root system. The Pandora's Box hosta was enchanting, nicely grown. I also bought Pennisetum "Hameln" and Viola "Columbine", both of which were perfect. Good thing I got in on their autumn sale. They're going in the garden today.
On May 14th, 2006, revclaus added the following:
I ordered again this spring, and everything they sent was in great shape. They send big plants, and accommodated by need to get out in the garden early. They were skeptical, but I insisted and they arrived right on time for me. I just wish they wouldn't use FedEx. In my experience FedEx beats up plants .
On May 19th, 2007, revclaus added the following:
More orders this year -- several, in fact -- and I was happy with all of them. This year some of the soil had been knocked out of the containers and plants were bent over. One echnicaea and a coleus were severely bent over and had to have about 6" of the top removed. I don't like to have to return things, so I didn't. I transplanted them, then added more dirt. So far so good.
On May 13th, 2009, revclaus changed the rating from positive to negative and added the following:
This is NOT a commentary on their product or service. It's a comment on their prices which went up this year to the point that I can no longer afford to buy from them. I did buy five calibrachoas but that's the extent of my purchase.
On May 25th, 2013, revclaus added the following:
I ordered from GC this spring but was disappointed in the heucheras I received. They're sold in 5.5" pots, but the roots were obviously liner length. What they sell as a larger plant turns out to be mostly potting soil with very few roots. I emailed a complaint but have not heard back from them. I won't be ordering from GC again. Stopped ordering in 2009 due to prices, ordered again this year expecting good value, but got poor value instead.
On June 24th, 2013, revclaus changed the rating from negative to positive and added the following:
Heidi at GC contacted me. She didn't replace the plant, but I was satisfied that she responded. The plant I complained about is growing, though slower than the matching plant and they're in the same pot. I ordered some echinaceas sometime later and because I had entered two different shipping addresses, she emailed to check, and emailed to double and triple check. Then she called when my card was declined. I appreciated that too. I definitely wanted those coneflowers! I had bought one earlier. My neighbor saw it in bloom and wanted one exactly like it. Since it was doing so well in a large pot I ordered a smaller one for a smaller pot. Great plants, and finally, responsive service.

Just wanted to comment on how impressed we were with the service & plants from Garden Crossings. We ordered tomatoes, hydrangeas & arborvitaes which arrived carefully packaged & extremely healthy. They are growing wonderfully & we are very happy with our purchases.

I ordered from this company because I read about them from Dave's Garden. I ordered an Echinacea and a Salvia. My plants were well packed and quite healthy and quite vigorous! Thank you Dave's Garden for the recommendation. I look forward to ordering from them again.

The first order arrived today. Very well packaged. Perhaps some of the best packaging I've seen for mail order plants. The plants look great also.
The company has fixed the error in billing. I'm just waiting for the money to return to my account (I think the delay is on my bank's side).

I got my 6 Bobo hydrangeas today. I had been worried that because they were the "last 6" that they had they wouldn't be as nice as the rest of the supply. I have to admit they are beautiful!!!! Packaged very well and big robust plants. They are stunning....my neighbors almost didn't believe me when I said they were mail order.
Also, the hold on my accounts expired yesterday so my funds were returned to my account this morning.
I will order from them again if I see something I need. I just think in the future I will place my orders by phone to avoid any mistakes (on my end or theirs).

I have been shopping with Garden Crossings for several years. Each year I would go to local garden stores to find both annuals & perennials and was always disappointed. I found Garden Crossings online by accident while searching for a plant I saw at a local store.

I highly recommend this nursery. I've used them several times. The plants are healthy and packed very well. I'm a master gardener and worked for a highend grower and nursery b/f I moved to VA. I purchased over 200 plants last year for our new property so I know a good nursery when I use one. This one is a keeper! Peggy Schochet

I've ordered two shipments from Garden Crossings (2011 & 2012). The first time all the plants were in superb condition, however, the second time I received unhealthy looking Million Kisses Begonias and the shippers damaged my wax begonias which weren't as tightly packed as the year before. When I contacted them a representative told me that the Million Kisses Devotion begonias would soon recover with home care and in fact they did completely recover two weeks later after I repotted them and put them on my indoor plant regimen (rotating Miracle-Gro + humic acid & vinegar + hydrogen peroxide every two days). The representative also gave me a refund for the begonias.

Garden Crossings sets the standard for a mail order plant supplier. They offer large, healthy plants and excellent customer service. Eveything I have bought from them is thriving and beautiful.

I am relatively new to gardening and have ordered from Garden Crossings a couple of times. Everything I have purchased has done wonderfully. I appreciate the detailed info on their website but most importantly the quality of their plants, they cost more than other online nurseries I have ordered from but are correspondingly bigger as well. I completely understand why they are a top 30 company here, they deserve it.

I recently bought some echinacea from Garden Crossing. They have a wonderful selection of these. The Raspberry Truffle was on my wishlist to find this year and to my delight they were on sell at GC. Also bought Solar Flare. All 6 plants were hugh!!! I had ordered from 4 companys and these plants were the biggest. Very healthy. This company was the most expansive of the 4 but still would order from them again. I got FREE SHIPPING with $75.00 order.The plants were well packaged and the soil stayed in the pots. The company provided great communication via e-mail. Their website was real nice although I couldn't find a tab for items on sale which would have been nice.

I am writing one year later after having returned to Garden Crossings for a second go-around. There were no great surprises. Once again, I am so tremendously impressed with the high quality of the bedding plants and the Proven winner plants. All appear to be "fresher" and more viable than plants I can obtain locally. The packaging is impeccable. Again, the pricing is very fair. The customer service (Heidi) is the best. My only regret is I am running out of space to add more plants right now... I haven't given up though... there must be a corner that needs a little color...

An assortment of plants I ordered arrived yesterday and I couldn't be more pleased. This was my first order from Garden Crossings and it won't be my last. Every plant is large, vibrant, and healthy. What I particularly am happy about is how the packing was done. The packing was very secure, but at the same time, it was very easy for me to unpack the individual plants from the carton. I order plants from other sources, only to find that although the packing is well-done and very secure, it takes a lot of time and effort to remove the plants from the carton because of excessive tape, cardboard, staples, and such. In these cases, the packing is overdone and difficult to remove. Two of the plants I purchased were lantana, which I had a difficult time locating from other online nurseries. Garden Crossings will be my new source for online plants.

I ordered 3 of their English Butterfly Series™ Buddleias in the 8" Jumbo Pot size and was very pleased. They shipped when I requested, the packing was superb, and the plants look healthy and well-rooted. Definitely a top-notch company.

Oops, got this company confused with one of the other three - review should have gone like this:
Plants were $20 each.
The Plant Palette plants arrived last out of the three. They were fairly large and healthy compared to the other companies.
I just planted them so it is too soon to tell how they will work out in the long term, but by comparison, I give them a positive rating.

After posting the rating I received a email from GC owner. They expressed that they would like to understand the problems I experienced and if they could make it right.
I have placed a order and they agreed to send replacement plants and I have ordered additional plants with my gift certificate.
That is very good customer service when people notice when a customer is not happy and reach out to make it right even from a 2010 order. That is a long way back to offer replacement plants that did not survive.
For my area the best time for planting is May so I will return when I get the new order and report the size and health of the new order.
Thank you Heidi
