I ordered five hydrangeas this spring. The order was shipped promptly, the plants were well packed, and the plants themselves were of excellent size and quality. Four of the five were damp when I received them; one was dry and a little droopy, but it perked up quickly. All have been in the ground for weeks now and are doing extremely well. I was very pleased with my experience with this company.

I have ordered several times from this company. The quality of their plants is truly excellent, as is their service and packaging. We used to visit this nursery every Mother's Day so I could choose whatever plants I wanted. When we moved away I missed my visits, until they sent a catalog and went online! The plants I receive from them now by shipment are every bit as good as the ones we used to buy in containers. This is a wonderful, reliable company that has never disappointed. (Their mature wisteria, blooming over the arbor on Mother's Day every year, is breathtaking and well worth a visit.)

I ordered several hydrangeas and vines in the Spring of 2003. All arrived in good shape and flourished in my zone 7 landscape. Packing was excellent. Email communication with Gene Griffith about amending my order and the shipping date was both timely and courteous. No question that I will definately do business with Wilkerson Mill Gardens in the future.

I just bought one of the new Endless Summer hydrangeas from Wilkerson Mill Gardens, and I was stunned by the beautiful, huge, undamaged, flowering plant I got. I have ordered hydrangeas from other companies who have charged very high prices for "one gallon" hydrangeas that ended up being a small cutting in a huge pot. This one was a very large plant, and I was extremely pleased. I look forward to ordering from them again.

Have ordered numerous times from Wilkerson Mill gardens and have been pleased each time. Plants are large, arrive soon after the order and thrive for me.

Ordered for the first time this spring. Received the plants one week after ordering. Very nice plants. I would order from them again.

I have now ordered from Wilkerson's about 4 times since 2003. I was very pleased each time. The plants are always in good condition. There was one plant a year or two ago that was very small when I received it as a fall shipment and they reimbursed me when I emailed them about it. I was very pleased with the way they handled the situation (in a warmer climate I don't think it would have been an issue) and have ordered again since. My latest purchase was a hydrangea paniculata chantilly lace just received earlier this month.

I just purchased over a $100 of climbing hydrangeas. There were three different kinds. There was a liitle problem ordering the plants on line, but the Wilkerson Mill people were quick to respond and I received my order in what I consider record time.

After being impressed with the first order of plants, I placed a second order 3/17/03. The second order arrived yesterday and the plants looked as good if not a little better than the first order. I will stay a customer.

Very good plants, very good packaging, and very nice people to deal with. I buy from them each spring.

This is a small nursery filled with treasures and run by very nice folks. It is a lovely place to visit in person, if you are in the Atlanta area. Every hydrangea and viburnum you could want is available here along with many other out-of-the-ordinary perennials, trees, and shrubs. Many of the nicest and most interesting things in my yard came from Wilkerson Mill and I always look forward to having an opportunity to visit them again.

I found their website this spring - what beautiful photographs, mixed in with poems and philosophy from someone inspiring to the nursery owners. I ordered six hydrangeas on-line very late in the season. I braced myself for some shipping damage since the plants would be fully leafed out and with blossoms coming along. The plants arrived immediately, and they were full and healthy. Not only was there no damage, but the shrubs looked not at all as if they were the last ones on the lot. I will be ordering several oakleafs from them next spring. I recommend visiting the website when you need a pick-me-up. The photos will make you feel that you are there, in the garden.

I live about 20 minutes from this company's nursery. I just purchased 2 viburnums. Everything at their nursery is good quality and they take pride in talking to you about your purchase and questions you may have about certain plants. This company has a wide range of hydrangeas as well as other unique shrubs and perennials. I compared the price of a Korean Spice Viburnum at Wilkerson's and it was approximately 50% cheaper at Wilkersons.

They have a wide variety of rare hydrangeas, but also carry a wide selection of other plants, particularly shrubs. The catalog is black and white with no photos, but adequate descriptions. I have ordered from them twice now, first in theWinter of 2000 for spring delivery and again in the fall of 2000. I order regularly from mail order nurseries and have shopped at a large number, from small to big operations. I have never seen plants the size provided by WilkersonMill. The plants were beautifully packed and though the hydrangeas had a good 12-18" of bushy growth on them, not a single stem was broken. I have ordered nine hydrangeas and one Viburnum from them. By the end of summer, the spring planted hydrangeas were the size of other nursery plants I have used after two full summers in the garden. The only bad thing I have found is that they don't have a very good inventory systems, so even though you may order your plants very early, they can't tell you whether you'll actually get them until they pack your order. I spoke to customer service in May 2000, and they said they were working on an improved tracking system.
