Received multiple plants from Dan at Brushwood: clematis, jasmine and a rose. All arrived very well; great packing as well as communication in re of the shipping times and tracking. The plants were very healthy and strong root growth were exhibited. Would definitely order from Brushwood again.

First thing, love the selection especially rare japanese variety that are hard to find. Plants arrived safely, healthy and quick developing after I potted them. Great communication, notify me when plants are shipped. Definitely on my list for future purchase. Recommended!

I'm still not sure my real rating on this nursery. Selection are awesome as I mentioned previously. Packaging/shipping excellent. Communication great. Prices are ok. Size of plants not so much impress. Max 2" sprout in quart size pot. Not very looking great but for sure I will make these grow. Which means I add more effort on what I paid for. Not trying to make clematis garden, just collecting few rare variety sometimes. So I wouldn't worry or bad feeling on what I received.On March 28th, 2014, bluebuster77 changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:
I have only two years experienced of clematis, so needs to learn more about trick of clematis. As soon as sun shine and warmer weather arrived, that 2" sprouts reaching 1' now. I needs bigger space! Thanks for the feedbackOn Mar 28, 2014, Brushwood Nursery responded with:

Thank you for coming back to Brushwood! I have reviewed your orders. Please note that you've ordered and received your plants each year just as the shipping season has opened. All of our clematis are cut back hard over winter. Each variety will be different in its response time to spring but all will be very short at the beginning of the season. Many will sprout only from the buds under the soil surface.
If you had requested and received your orders just a few weeks later, the stems might be up to the top of the stakes or possibly beyond or might even have had their first spring trim. In the past 2 weeks many varieties have gone from tiny stubs to nearly 2 feet of growth while others are just waking up. They're each a little different.
I'm glad you appreciate our service and selection of clematis and hope your plants thrive under your care! "

I was pleasantly surprised when I received an E-mail letting me know a previously out of stock item was available, a really nice feature on the Web site. The order shipped quickly, shipping cost was reasonable, the packaging was great, and the plants are healthy.

I have ordered from Brushwood (gardenvines.com) three times in the past, and I have always received very high-quality clematis and climbing roses. The plants are doing very well in my flower bed as well as containers. The plants are sizeable and arrive healthy. I was so pleased with the quality of the past orders, I just submitted an order for more clematis and climbing roses. I am looking forward to receiving these.

I have purchased several clematis vines from this company and I would never go any where else! This is a high quality operation with very reasonable prices and excellent service. This morning UPS delivered three of the most healthy and strong looking vines that anyone could ever wish to receive.. I purchased a montana Rubens for my pergola, a Jackmanii for my front porch and an Anita for my back fence. Last fall I purchased a yellow Clematis Tangutica which wintered perfectly and is beginning to take off and is finding its way up my back steps archway. I could not be more pleased. I highly recommend Brushwood Nursery
Outstanding communication, selection and web site design. Shipping was $10.75 US Priority mail for two plants. The packing and quality of the two clematis was top-rate, and the speed of delivery was, too!
My plants are very nice and well worth their cost.
I will always go to Brushwood for my clematis now.

I've placed 3 orders in 4 weeks, so definitely satisfied. I grow clematis in pots and Brushwood has a large number of varieties from which I can choose. Packaging has been appropriate/ phenomenal and clematis have been shipped at dates I've suggested. Brushwoods is my #1 option for clematis !!!

I went a little crazy this winter with mail-ordering! I was tired of the tried and true clematis selections of the nurseries in the state of Conn. So....online I went, and I have to say I was exceptionally pleased with my experience at Brushwood. Easy to use site, reasonable prices and shipping charges(although is there ever a good shipping charge?). The orders, there were two, made months apart, arrived the same day in awesome shape, really large root systems, green lush healthy foliage, much larger than the small pots that some other mail-order companies ship. There was great communication from the company, including tracking info. I would give this company the highest rating.
1st time ordering from Brushwood and thrilled with plants. They arrived promptly and were packed well. They had to wait a week for me to decide exactly where to place them and dig through the clay, amend soil and such but they're looking very pleased - pinched back a tad but recovered perfectly with much growth already. Great communication, prices & plants! Highly recommend :-)
I just received my order of the healthiest, best packed plants Imaginable. The catalog on line is easy to use with great service and reasonable shipping costs. No wonder they are a top rated company. I already am making out my next order. Thanks Brushwood Nursery

Ordered three clematis from Brushwood--Niobe and 2 Josephines. Josephine was the weekly sale, so the price was great. I am happy with everything about this order. The vines are a nice size. They arrived well-packed in good condition, ready to take off. They've been here about a week and all three have grown about 8 inches already.

Pleased with the first shipment. Ordered a second shipment from the company. Another one of Dave's "30" came through again. Can't thank Dave enough for this service.

Brushwood ships very healthy plants that are quite large for a 4" pot,and Dan has been helpful when I had questions. I've bought several clematis plants and climbing roses and was very happy with all of them. I'm in Ocala, FL.
I recently ordered a clematis that nobody else had and it's the biggest clematis I've ever gotten in a 4" pot in my life. It was in perfect health and is growing vigorously in the garden. Packing is great too.
The wisteria that I ordered arrived in excellent condition. The plant was vigorous, healthy, and well-packed. This was my first time ordering from Brushwood Nursery. I will not hesitate to order from them again.

Just ordered from them today but contacted them twice in the last day with questions. Very prompt and courteous reply. Anxious for my clematis to arrive. Champcooper Houston, Tx

Truly excellent. the plants are extremely healthy and ready to plant. I'm already planning my second order. I ordered 1 rose and 4 clematis and I have absolutely no complaints. I will monitor their progress but if you don't see any updates to my review, assume everything is wonderful.
WOW. Jasmine Fiona's Sunrise and clematis Kiri Te Kenawa arrived exceptionally packaged and staked, with intact, moist root balls and vigorous new growth. What a contrast to the spindly, dried-out, sickly twigs I received from other online companies. Greenwood Nursery is my new standard.

This is my third order from Brushwood. which recently moved to Georgia from Pennsylvania. Dan did not miss a beat in the move and on very short notice provided me with top quality clematis... perhaps the best I have ever received! The packing is impeccable and the size of the plants very generous. Dan's response time would be nearly impossible to beat. I am not sure whether he is in your top 30, but he certainly should be!
Looking for a good variety of top quality vines with the very best service? This is the place! Look no further

It is late March here and I recently received my fourth order from this wonderful nursery. It was the same exceptional service with the best clematis ever.... the came with buds, are growing like weeds, and are already blooming. They simply cannot be beat and deserve their place in the top 30...

One year later... April 24, 2012
The move to Georgia certainly did not hurt... our newest arrivals are of the same top quality and in six weeks time are in full bloom. Looking for clematis? The quality and varieties offered by Brushwood are the very best for their very reasonable prices.

I ordered from Brushwood again and I think these plants were even more beautiful than last time. The vines were fully rooted into the pots without being bound and when I unpacked them they were fresh and bright with just enough moisture - not wet or rotting. One of the two best mail orders I've gotten this spring!
I recently purchased a red trumpet vine from Brushwood. This is a wonderful nursery. This was my first purchase from them. The plant was shipped very quickly and when I had requested it. It arrived Priority Mail. The plant is extremely healthy and a nice large size about 14 inches tall. They charge only $10 shipping for either one or 100 plants. The plant was carefully packed. They let me know when it was shipped via email. I am very happy.
I do NOT have the green thumb in the family. I've wanted roses for a long time, but can never get bare roots to grow. I ordered from Brushwood as a last ditch effort before conceding that roses aren't for me, really.
My order arrived as scheduled, two happy-looking, 12" plants. I planted the Zephirine Drouhin Roses in a part sun spot in my yard in early June, and they are doing great!!! Two months later they are over 3 feet tall and have tons of new growth.
Customer service at Brushwood was prompt and helpful in that someone answered a question I had about planting them very quickly by email.
If these rose vines continue to be this happy, I might finally have to learn how to prune! :-)

I ordered three climbing roses and they arrived so perfectly packaged that there was not as much as a bent leaf. The plants are very healthy and a good size for the price. Overall an excellent mail order experience. I like being able to be notified when an out of stock item is available again. I will order from this company again.
Healthy mid-sized plants (mostly clematis) that have grown well for me, blooming in their second year. Excellent selection, excellent packaging and an astonishingly low shipping cost. When the shipping, quantity discount, and a coupon were added, these robust plants were cost comparable with much smaller plants from other suppliers, but far better plants. I have ordered from Brushwood twice and will not hesitate to order from them again.
This was my first order with Brushwood and my four chosen clematis are very healthy, growing and looking great. My plants were very well packaged and shipped in a timely manner. There are other vines that I wanted but were not in stock at the time I placed my order. So I will be ordering from them in the future. I am a very happy and satisfied customer.

Packing was supberb. You can tell that Dan has been doing this for a while. He has the secret to excellent plants, ordering ease, shipping and great communication. Thank you Brushwood, you're the best! I will be ordering again and highly recommend that you do the same.
