Despite their dubious distinction of being very expensive on their shipping charges, I have been a repeat customer of Logees for the past 5 years as they are one of the only places where I can find some of the plants I grow, all of the plants I've ordered from them have been healthy, & none of my orders have ever arrived damaged.

This is the third time I have ordered from Logee's. The plants have all arrived in excellent condition and were well-packed even though I live in rural Wisconsin and they ship from Connecticut. Yes, the prices are higher, but sometimes you get what you pay for. I've bought a variety of plants, ranging from Venus fly-traps to "tooth-ache plant" to guavas to Meyer lemon to black goji berry to two varieties of kumquats and other citrus. All are still living and most are thriving..

Got the plant and variety I wanted and it is healthy. Fairly small and pricey but unusual so understandable, I guess.

I ordered some figs online about a month ago. I thought I would be getting them within 7-10 days with standard shipping. Unfortunately they did not arrive as promised, although they were shipped promptly when I complained. other than this my experience was positive.

Always a good experience buying plants from Logee's. We have been to the greenhouse three times and bought plants online twice. The staff with whom we have interacted have always been pleasant and helpful.

I ordered some citrus in the end of year sale, and did not expect them until March when the weather warmed up here in Iowa. Instead they got them shipped to me safely in January. The plants look good, with larger plants than expected for 4" pots. Great selection of interesting plants.

I ordered from loggees was great. I got replacement plants right away after the post office mangled my box. Very happy with this company would order from them again. Service was great

I just received my order. They had a free shipping offer if you purchased over $100 worth of plants and I couldn't resist. The plants really look great and were pretty good size. Really I get excited when I open these mail order boxes from nurseries. I will continue to order from this nursery.

Great! They let me know exactly what was going on with the shipping status. The plant was well packaged and came with directions. I expected it to be small because it was in a 2.5 inch pot. It was actually very tall and had 9 mature leaves on it. I repotted it and it looks healthy with lots of leaves. I hope it will bloom this summer.

I have ordered from Logee's many times going back 40 years before there was a website and they just had a skinny catalog with mostly begonias. We have both grown up together. Recently I received my spring order and again was very satisfied. The fun for me is growing the plants up to maturity. I know that i will be getting a small plant in a 2" pot as is shown on their website so I don't expect to receive plants ready to display. They ship promptly. It is my favorite mailorder nursery for their huge variety and reliability.

I had a great experience with LOGEE'S - in fact the plants were in excellent shape = perfect, all wrapped in a silk black material that feels like silk with white shredded material for stuffing. Everything was extremely well packed and therefore the plants were in stellar shape. I ordered 18 Scaevola aemula "Fan Flower" and 3 Schizostylis Coccinea 'Major'. This actually is the best packaging and condition of plants I have ever received from anyone or any place barring of course going to a local nursery and picking out my own. I will DEFINITELY be ordering from Logee's again. The quality was stellar. It did take them 9 days before they shipped, but then I got the order in 3 days and I just had standard shipping (Pacific Northwest) and Logee's is in Connecticut. So I am very impressed with Logee's. They also put in a coupon if I do another order in 15 days after receipt of this order I get another 10% off. So I gotta look at my plant wish list again.

Have been ordering plants, both indoor and outdoor, from them for nearly 40 years. Plants are almost always larger than described and of high quality. Most have to be moved to larger pots soon after receiving. Those plants that have not survived are likely my fault as is the almost always the case with most people and plants.

Ordered a few fruit trees from them this month. Arrived well packed, small but healthy and showing signs of new growth. I enjoy watching their youtube tours of the greenhouse and I hope they will post more informational videos about their products in the future. Thanks!

I ordered a butterfly bush named Miss Molly. It was supposed to be red. Both the description and image in the catalog stated it was to be red. When it arrived it was purple. I sent an email to Logee's and within a day they apologized for the mistake and sent me another. It hasn't bloomed yet, so I'm not positive it is red. But I hope it is. I also have a purple one to find a home for.

So happy with my recent order! I ordered 3 "Stingray" Elephant Ears, a Persian Lime plant, and a Dwarf Jamaican Heliconia. All of the plants were in great shape when they arrived and were packaged amazingly- small pots with dirt and protective plastic for shipping, each plant was wrapped in tissue and placed securely into a proper sized box. All of the plants are adjusting well and I couldn't be happier. Will definitely order more from them- the stock is excellent and their variety of rare plants is a bonus.

I was a little reluctant to order houseplants in one of the worst winters in many years. But they said they would ship when the weather permitted. The plants arrived in perfect condition; all were healthy (a few in bud stage). I have never had plants so carefully packed and so well protected for shipping. On my second order, the experience was the same; nothing broken or damaged and no spilled dirt all over the bottom of the boxes. Everything very healthy. They have a wide variety to choose from and even have special sales periodically. I will definitely make future purchases from Logees.

I will upgrade my status to a positive and reconsider staying with logees if I here back promptly on why my plant was placed in a hot lock box instead of delivered to my door. If I hadn't of retrieved my jasmine when I did from the mail box it would have been toast. My review below was a tad harsh. Heat of the moment type situation. That is why I'm moving to neutral. But I still find the way my plant was delivered unexceptable.

I appreciate the comments above logees. Thankyou. As promised I have moved my rating to a positive. I will definitely order from you guys again after getting a dismal jasminum sambac from a separate provider. My friend loves the jasmine and it is thriving now. I plan on ordering a jasminum humile from you guys next. Thanks again logees

I ordered jasmine plants from Logees in Feb and requested hold date due to midwest weather conditions. Last week of April they were shipped and I received beautiful healthy plants and I am very happy. One of the jasmines bloomed today and it smells wonderful. I will not hesitate to buy again.

Since I just placed another order with this company I felt it was time to comment again. My most recent order prior to this was lost by USPS. The tracking system showed it being received and processed by the facility in Connecticut mutiple times(three or four). When it did finally arrive the plants were dead and dry. Even though the problem wasn't Logee's fault, they promptly replaced the order without argument. That's a win in my book. Thanks!

Another great shipment from Logee's. These plants have been on my wanted list for years, but I couldn't get them until I built my greenhouse. The Sweet Almond Verbena even has flowers on it. Awesome!

My experience with Logee's has been wonderful. The plants are well-packed when shipped. They are also prompt in answering my e-mails. I ordered two Miracle Fruit plants in December, and they are doing very well. They were growing so large that I was advised to transplant into non-glazed terra cotta pots. I did so two weeks ago and they are thriving. I can hardly wait to get my berries. Thank you, Logee's.

I agree with some of the comments that Logee's plants are quite expensive. However, in my several orders to them, all the plants arrived in great condition, very well packaged, good size, and are all growing well. It's also true, as mentioned, that they carry plants that cannot easily be found anywhere else, which is the main reason I started ordering from the.m

I ordered eight edible plants that I cannot find in any local nurseries: a dwarf maher star fruit, two different dwarf mulberries, two honeyberry plants, a china blue vine, an australian beach cherry, and a miracle fruit. My plants arrived yesterday, and I am very pleased with the quality of the plants I received.

I was contacted by Logee's Customer Service regarding my dissappointment and a replacement tree was sent. The replacement was a bigger and nicer tree. I am completely satsified and I appreciate that fact they went out of their way to provided exceptional customer service. The Logee catalog is filled with a huge variety of plants and trees so I can definitely see a future purchase. I have no reservation about recommending them to other gardners - good customer service is ultimately what we expect and deserve for our hard earned money! Thanks Logee's!!!

I have ordered from Logee's for years. I just received two Clivia minatas from them and could not be happier. I repotted them up one pot size as they recommended, and the roots were impressive. Both plants were substantial plants for the price I paid. They are a reliable source for tropical plants that one will rarely find locally.

Placed an order on 5/30/12 for 2 Sunshine Blueberries, Michelia figo and Abutilon 'voodoo', called on 6/8/12 to ask about status of order and was told it would ship on 6/11/12. My order arrived on 6/15/12 in excellent condition despite high heat in the east. I would have appreciated an E-mail as to when my order would ship, we have a pitbull and most carriers won't enter the yard, besides we have 95 degree weather from April to November in Brownsville Tx, and you can't leave boxes unprotected in the sun. The plants are all actively growing, despite a 103 degree heat wave. The plants were bought on sale, normally a bit pricey! I will be purchasing from them again. To all of you that say that you can get it locally cheaper and larger, use some common sense, if you are dumb enough to pay for shipping, then you don't have the right to complain. The point of mailorder nurseries is to buy plants you could never get locally.

I ordered and recently received a 'Citrus Trio' of a Meyer lemon, a Key lime and a Sanguinelli blood orange as well as a Jaboticaba tree. The citrus arrived in very good condition. The new leaves on the Jaboticaba have died back, but otherwise it looks to be in good condition as well. The tree itself was much larger than I was expecting. All trees are under a grow light. I'll update later when/if they stabilize and start growing again.

I've ordered two exotic plants from Logee's, and must say I'm a very satisfied customer. The first was a Murraya Paniculata, which arrived in excellent condition. It was very well packaged, with a number of precautions taken to ensure safe delivery (which I appreciate, given that it was shipped across the country to CA). It's been a few weeks and it's nearly doubled in size and remains very healthy.

I've placed two recent (November and December) orders with Logee's and am very pleased with the plants I received. Out of nine total, seven of them were larger than I expected - much larger, in a couple of cases - and two were the anticipated size. All of them were healthy and well-packed. Both the orange jasmine and the euphorbia millli 'Red Jillian' bloomed within two weeks of arriving, and the jewel orchid is starting a bloom spike. I also appreciated the care sheets that were included. One plant was a species I've never tried to grow before, and the sheet was much more detailed than any of my houseplant books.

I have only ordered twice from Logees, but have had good experiences both times. The first time I ordered a schlumbergera, it took a little longer to arrive because it was peak shipping season. I just ordered Schlumbergera Aspen in August of 2011, and it arrived very quickly. No problems here!
