I have been gardening for many years now.....have ordered from many, many garden sources (online, catalog and physical stores) but have never found anything to compare with the quality and care gone into Evergreen's plants. I have received 4 separate shipments over the last year now....and a 5th on the way. Everything from good sized trees & shrubs; their great roses & flowers to the most recent additions of their selection of Berries (Raspberries, Blackberries, Blueberries & Gojis) has been beyond expectations in health, size and GREAT packaging!

I ordered 20 some plants from Darren's, Evergreen nursery several weeks ago and recieved them in a very good timely manner. The plants were packaged very nicely. The size of the plants and the condition was great.I planted the plants in my garden a few days after I recieved them, and so far they look great.I had sent Darren two emails since ordering and his response was quick and informative. I am glad to have done business with him and look foward to doing business with him in the near future. THANK YOU DARREN & EVERGREEN NURSERY.

This is a wonderful nursery. I ordered three crepe myrtles and one day lily. I was promptly emailed by the owner apologizing that the day lily was out of stock and asked if I would like to substitute. I called and left a message with the substitution and the order was sent out the next day. The plants arrived in very good condition and were huge. Because it is so hot this year I potted them and within a week they were pushing new growth.

Hi!! I do definitely remember your order due to the Daylily inventory issue ( sorry about not having the variety you originally wanted ). I'm very glad to hear that everything made it to you in good shape - sounds like they're all settling in quite nicely is pushing new growth. That's a great sign!!

I've ordered Lipan Crapemyrtles twice from Evergreen. Both times, all plants arrived healthy and ready to plant. Shipping was prompt. Even though I live in Central Texas, these plants have settled in well and produce a plethora of beautiful blooms each summer. This is a good company to do business with.

Earlier this summer I placed my first order with Evergreen. We lost a couple of older (20+) yews this past winter and I had a gap in our foundation plants . I ordered a Juniper, Chamaecyparis, and a couple types of arborvitae. The plants arrived in fantastic condition and were a generous size considering the prices. I see a lot of things in their catalog that I'm adding to my wishlist for next year.

Evergreen Nursery is an outstanding online nursery. Darren is very helpful and sells top quality plants. I ordered Rosy Glow Barberries, Froebelli Spireas, Gold Mound Spireas, a Diablo Ninebark, and a Shirobana Spirea. I received my order in two days after it shipped just like their shipping map said. Everything was very well packaged and packed. Evergreen Nursery ships each of their plants in in a plastic bag instead of a pot. They shake off much of the soil but there is still quite a bit of soil on the roots. The plants were healthy, and except for a few broken twigs, undamaged.

The plants I purchased from Evergreen Nursery last year performed so well in my gardens that I pretty much duplicated that same order as my first order for 2014, which I received on 4/28/14. Once again, they did not disappoint with the plants they sent me.
I absolutely love the Arb. Wansdyke Silver & Cham. Squarrosa Sulphurea. Considering the absolutely brutal winter a lot of us experienced, the Squarrosa got a little beat up & the extreme sub-zero temps & strong winds didn't even phase the Wansdyke Silver. The Nandinas didn't fare so well, but I expected that to happen that's why I ordered them again this year.
Thanks again Evergreen Nursery folks & was wondering if any of the plants I've ordered from you are Black Walnut tolerant?

So I could not stay away from ordering from this wonderful source in 2013 after 2012 experience.
I placed 2 orders of total around 35 different trees and some shrubs. All arrived perfectly packaged with no damage at all and so beautiful. Healthy, large... I do not know how is Darren and his wife doing it but this is example of fantastic online business that you can trust.
I ordered all kind of different species, very impressed with their selection. I really liked Cryptomeria japonica Black Dragon, Chamaecyparis Squarrosa Sulphurea, Sawara False Cypress, Juniperus Robusta Green, Chamaecyparis Rachael and many more. Some Chamaecyparis were sold out last season so I may add it to my collection this year. Skyrocket Junipers arrived healthy but did not survived this wetland climate- PA-even in full sun- those are susceptible to blights and cankers- Juniperus Scopulorum. I will stick with Juniperus Chinensis from now on. That reminds me how wonderfully informative Evergreen Nursery website is.
This is the place where I go to shop for healthy, robust trees and shrubs with many hard to find species.

When I first bought my house in Ma. I wanted to plant evergreen trees and shrubs for borders and sound barriers; my property was next to a commuter train and a main road. I spoke to them on the phone and they were very helpful choosing plants and sending me the biggests plants they could. Their prices per plant are one of THE MOST reasonable I have come across and they have a very good selection of evergreens. Also, their shipping prices are VERY reasonable AND they were willing to bargain down on cost since I spent alot of money. I always go to them FIRST when I need any plants I know they offer, sometimes I check them out to see if they've added anything new.

I just received my order today, and I am so pleased! I bought 22 plants and all arrived healthy. They were packaged very well, not one was damaged. I bought a small batch of plants last year, which was my first time. Obviously, I was happy with my purchase then, which is why I didn't hesitate to buy here again this year. I did start my plant shopping a little late so a lot of what I wanted were sold out. But there's always next time. Thanks, Evergreen Nursery!

Ordered 1 blue ice Arizona Cypress. The packaging was well done and the plant was undamaged. I was pleasantly suprised to see the graft/root flare of the young tree instead of inches deep in soil like so many other young trees. So far the tree has done well in the yard adapating to its environment. I would definitely order from this company again. Thanks so much!

I ordered a golden leyland cypress, blue ice arizona cypress, sky rocket juniper and a cryptomeria "elegans". All the plants came in perfect condition. Each plant was wrapped and tied down to the box so that it does move during shipping. I just have a recommendation to anyone who orders from this nursery: order size 2 plants. The plants that were size 2 were three times bigger or more than the size one plants and only a couple dollars extra. For example the size 2 cryptomeria was almost 4 feet tall while the size 1 leyland cypress was only 6 inches tall. The prices were great, beter than any local nursery or big box store I will definitely order again.

What a great experience! I ordered a special shrub for a new baby in the family and I couldn't have been more pleased. Communication was prompt and friendly, letting me know that the January weather was delaying shipment for a few days, as they would prefer not to stress plants further in bad conditions. I was kept in the loop and updated when my plant was ready to ship. Fed-Ex just delivered a robust, healthy plant. Packaging was excellent and there wasn't so much as a broken needle in the box. I'm quite pleased with my whole experience and will be a repeat customer.

I recently ordered 4 nandina firepower plants and 3 Nandina heavenly bamboo bushes from Evergreen Nursery. They were shipped very quickly and arrived in a few days after ordering. I opened the box to find some very beautiful, large, and healthy plants. Unfortunately, the UPS driver stood the box up on end and two of the Heavenly bamboo were severely damaged even though Evergreen Nursery had packed and tied the plants so carefully. I sent them an email and Darren offered to replace the 2 damaged plants. They sent them out very quickly and they arrived the following week. Again, I opened the box to find 2 very large beautiful healthy plants. They replaced the original plants with 2 of the same size and quality plants like I had ordered. I will definitely be ordering from Evergreen Nursery again and referring a few friends as well. Great healthy plants in good sizes and excellent customer service.

I've placed two orders with Evergreen Nursery this Spring, both for 2-3 Crape Myrtles. The orders were shipped immediately, and arrived in a timely fashion. The plants were healthy yet rootbound, and were smaller than the listed size on their website. However, the prices are so reasonable there is little reason to get Crape Myrtles anywhere else. The plants from the 1st order are just starting to grow (my area had a cool, wet Spring), and I am not sure if any of the specimens will bloom later in the Summer. Time will tell...

Have ordered from Evergreen for several years now.

Web site is unequaled, easy to navigate, really great info (way more and better than is usually supplied), and any questions one may have are answered promptly by someone with plenty of experience, so you don't have to ask again.
