This was my first experience ordering plants online, doing so only because I really wanted a Cherry Cheesecake Hibiscus, and I've never seen them available at my local greenhouses. I chose Garden Crossings based on their excellent reviews. In February I purchased the 3Gallon Cherry Cheesecake Hibiscus, and added a Berrylicious Hibiscus, a couple Campanula, and a couple Geraniums. The wait began!

I really would like to give them a Positive rating, but since I'm a little disappointed with my plants, I cannot.

My experience is with the plant-hunt itself. In searching for Scaevola aemula in the Garden Crossings LCC website I find it is not available, yet it is shown as available on the Dave's Garden Plant Scout. How Can this be? While trying to be efficient and using Dave's Garden I get sent on a wild goose chase.

Bought two clematis recently. For 5.5 inch pots, they are small plants - one of them was about 3 inches tall. Not the size I expected for a highly rated nursery in Dave's Watchdog and for the plant size described in their website. I am giving it a neutral rating because, although small, they are alive.

I placed an order on their web site last week and it was partially filled today.
On September 15th, 2009, reeve1 changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:
Rod did contact me and showed interest to resolve this matter. I wanted to also be clear that my comment about Heidi saying "This is the way it's going to be" was based on the situation as she presented it to me and not from anything she said verbally. She just wasn't offering me any other options but to take the partial order that was already shipped and either replace what now couldn't be provided or remove it from the order. But, I didn't want any of it now that the most important part (to me) could no longer be provided. I'm communicating with Rod on this now and I'm sure we will come to a reasonable agreement. Changing to Neutral based on his willingness to resolve this... after the fact.

I ordered the incrediball hydrangea and received the plant at the appropriate time. I was very disappointed when I opened the box and realized this plant was tiny. The very few leaves it had were wilted and falling off the plant. I contacted the company and was told to go ahead and plant it, wait 2 weeks and let them know if it was still in bad shape. Well...2 weeks later and the plant is dead. I'm disappointed because I really wanted this plant and was also upset because the plant was so small and in bad shape when I received it. All of the other 11 hydrangeas that I bought from local nurseries, at half the price of the incrediball hydrangea, are doing very well.

I won't buy again from them.

I hesitate to give a neutral when I've had such an experience as this one with Garden Crossings. I ordered 3 Clematis and a variegated dogwood and one Joe Pye weed. The company waited almost a week to ship, which was fine. But when the box arrived, the results of riding around the country with Fed Ex were for the most part, horrible.
On August 1st, 2007, patnjbob added the following:
After posting on this site, a partial refund was made for the 2 plants which were dead and or near dead upon arrival.

I am very impressed with Garden Crossings. I ordered a lilac and viola from them. The plants arrived quickly (within days rather than weeks like some other companies). I was able to choose my shipping date. They were well packed, given no room to shift around or lose dirt. And they were big, bushy, and very healthy. The lilac was only in a 5-6 inch pot, but it was bigger and more lush than lilacs I've received in 1-gallon containers, yet it wasn't rootbound.
On August 20th, 2007, White_Hydrangea changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:
I have to shove this down to neutral at least. The plants have all since died. I won't be making any more orders from this company. I've ordered the replacement lilac from somewhere else.

The only reason I am rating this a neutral and not a negative is the plants that I did receive were very healthy and large plants.

I ordered a butterfly bush from Garden Crossings. When the bush finally arrived (a lot longer than I had been lead to believe) it was sickly looking, with one green leaf and two or three brown, yellow, and curled leaves on it. Their packing job was less than desirable as well (dirt was all over the bottom of the box, the plant wasn't in an upright position, etc.) I thought, "This is what I've been waiting for all this time?!" I went ahead and planted the bush, thinking it would make a comeback once it was planted and received some fresh air and water. I contacted Garden Crossings by email two times. It wasn't until I contacted them a third time via Dave's Garden that they responded. After the gentleman from Garden Crossings contacted me, and more or less told me, they would never send a barerooted plant and/or a plant in that condition, I sent him a picture of the bush. Upon receipt of the picture I was given a refund. The bush "gave up the ghost" 5-7 days after it was planted.

Just received my order today. Superb!
On May 31st, 2006, plantaholic2 changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:
Now that I've gotten to planting them all, I unfortunately have to add some negative information and will change my overall rating to neutral. I don't know if I will use them again.
The root systems on most of the plants were disappointingly small. Had I known that while they sat outside and waited for planting, I would not have let them get exposed to so much rain. With jumbo pots consisting of 90% soil and 10% roots, a few didn't make it through some prolonged rains.
The only positive spin possible here is that I have started noticing that plants from local garden centers are also starting to come in with mostly soil. That is a new observation (to me), so it looks like an industry trend. (which doesn't make me any happier!)
My 2nd order was not packed as well as the first. Dirt was all over the place.

Ordered 2 plants - 1 was out of stock - the other didn't survive the winter...
