I have ordered several clematis from this company, and will continue to do so. I have never met a clematis in the local nursery, box store, or other online company, that was as vigorous and ready to grow as the ones I received from Brushwood. Well packed with excellent root growth and top growth, I can't wait for the flowers this year!
I sent several emails to this company because I had questions about different plants. They emailed me back every time and were very helpful. I found the plants that they suggested for my Zone (9) and they sent them super fast. I couldn't believe how healthy the plants were when I got them. One had blooms all over it. They are all doing well. I will be ordering from this company again. The whole experience was great! Not to many companies like this out there any more.
I am very pleased with the Duchess of Albany clematis I ordered. Our dear U.S. Post Office lost the package, therefore, it was late in being delivered. I expressed by concern to Dan who said it should survive a week in the packaging, if not to contact him. It not only survived the eight days in transit but arrived very healthy without even any wilting or bruising. I planted it immediately, mulched it, and it is already growing rapidly. It's a winner! I'll buy from Brushwood again!

I ordered a clematis and 3 weeks later added a climbing rose to my order - everything went smoothly - the second was added to my first order and I was not charged shipping twice! This is the first time I ordered online and boy am I thrilled. The plants were in great condition and about 12 to 15 inches tall! I was not expecting that! Great people to work with - I will definitely order from them again!

I ordered 6 clematis and all were received in wonderful condition. I've gifted some and planted some. These plants were top notch with excellent packing. I expect them to bloom and thrive! Brushwood was a tiny bit more expensive BUT the plants I received were at least twice as large (the root systems were amazing). I wish Brushwood would offer some more exotic vines (ie. gotta replace every year in zones 8 to 1) but I'll take what they offer. Communication was excellent.

Even though my clematis arrived early I am thrilled with the size and condition of the plants.
Packing was superior.
Plants were damp and one has a bud.
We are still quite cold here and had night temps in the teens so the order will live in the house with me until I can acclimate it to the garden.
Many thanks for a great job.

I was a bit hesitant to order in January because Brushwood (aka gardenvines.com) didn't ship until March, but I'm glad I waited. In addition to the routine updates and shipping confirmation I received, the shipping was right on time and the plant arrived healthy and well rooted. I would recommend ordering more than one plant to take advantage of the flat $10 shipping. I'll be a repeat customer and their reputation is right on point.
This is the first time I ordered from this company. I only ordered one Clematis Belle of Woking because I did not want to be disappointed as I have been in the past from other companies. The clematis I received arrived quickly, well packaged, and in excellent condition. I only have it a few days and the darn thing is growing like a weed! It also has many buds. I will definitely order from Brushwood Nursery again.
The clematis ordered from Brushwood are among the healthiest, most vigorous plants that I've ever ordered on line. The plants are well packaged and arrive at the proper planting time. I have order from them over two seasons and will definitely order from them again.
Extremely patient, helpful, and knowledgeable! Combined orders placed over time to save on shipping and held order until requested date to ship. I ordered 4 wisteria, 2 clematis and 1 rose and the plants arrived looking extremely healthy and carefully packed. Would definitely order from them again. A pleasure to do business with.
Positive isn't good enough, it was GREAT! These people
know what they are doing, offer wonderful plants and service
at great prices. The plants looked like something from a
gardening magazine, they were so healthy and well packaged, I was in awe and just placed another order with them. I will be a regular customer, as I had to let my garden go for three years, because I got tired of ordering plants that arrived half dead, especially from J&P. Now , I have been sent plants that inspire me. Thank them for me.

I ordered a climbing rose, 3 clematis and another vine. Everything was great. The order was misdelivered to a wrong address and Brushwood was very helpful in contacting me so that I could get the delivery 2 blocks away. Thank you. Buy from this company.
This was my first time ordering from Brushwood and I am very happy with the four healthy, large clematis I received. The plants were well packaged and arrived when I had requested. Thank you! I will be back.
Out of all the orders I placed with this company they did not replace the one plant that died over winter. I even offered to pay for shipping, but in the end I am not happy with no replacement policy and everybody should be aware that buying from this company means possible disappointment. I believe in the end that the consumer must be kept happy at all costs. It is to that end companies need to be aware that there are websites like this that the consumer has the means of allowing comment and warning.
DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THIS COMPANY

I had several recent emails back and forth with deseret regarding this issue in which I explained our policies again. He claims that he now "disagrees" with them 9 months after his purchase. These terms and conditions are printed clearly on the web site and are not unusual in the mail order nursery business. It's not a "no replacement" policy but it doesn't cover winter losses. There are just too many things that can happen to a plant in the garden that have nothing to do with the quality of the plants we ship (floods, ice, drought, deer, voles, neighbor dogs, spouses "weeding" your garden...).
Brushwood Nursery grows and ships high quality plants. Customer satisfaction is very important to us and we will honor our terms and conditions in full to all customers."

This was my first purchase. I bought a Sweet Autumn Clematis. The plant arrived quickly, very well packaged and healthy. Much larger than I expected. Beautiful plant. I am very happy with the service and quality. I will no doubt buy from them again.

I ordered a Huldine clematis from Brushwood a month or so ago. It arrived right on time, and was wonderfully packed. The plant was in a pot and the soil was still very moist. An insert recommended watering the plant "even if the soil was still moist" and placing in the shade for a day, which I did. I appreciated the specific extra directions.
The clematis seems very healthy and is growing very well. I would definitely buy from them again!
This is the first time I have ordered from Brushwood Nursery. I ordered a Joseph's Coat and Westerland rose and a Viola clematis. I was not disappointed. The plants were a nice size and healthy! Thank you

Over the past few weeks, I have received mail order clematis from five different vendors. They varied in size and price quite a bit, but I'm happy to say that all the plants are thriving and happy... from every vendor. Brushwood offered a fantastic selection, the roots on their plants are mid-size compared to the others, their prices are very reasonable (and even better with the 10% ACS discount they offer), their discount policy for bulk purchases is fantastic, and their shipping costs are much lower than any of the other vendors. The owner was friendly, quick and helpful with his emails. My order arrived promptly, packaged well, and in very healthy condition. Overall, Brushwood offers me the most "bang for my buck" with clematis purchases and I will happily be a repeat customer in the future. A++++ vendor! =)
I received my first order with Brushwood, and I am so pleased!! The climbing roses and honeysuckle all arrived in perfect condition -- and mailed out promptly. All were very well established and the climbing rose already had blooms. Amazing! I will order again!

Brushwood Nursery is an excellent source for clematis vines. I ordered from them in 2008 and was very satisfied with the plant material. My 2009 order just arrived and the plants are even better than last season! Wish I had more garden space to order more. Excellent company.

Awesome little specimens, clean, bright, strong, well-packaged. Simple transaction. All without informing them of my Dave's Garden relationship and link from the Top 30 suppliers. Highly recommended to all.
received my order yesterday-as promised, plants look great, packaged well (except that the bottom of the box opened when I went to pick it up). The clematis already had a flower on it. Very pleased with this company. Will use them again. AA++
I love this company!! This was my first time ordering from Brushwood Nursery and it has been a great experience. Initially, when we visited their website, they were sold out of several items we were looking for, but they notified us by email as soon as the items were back in stock. We ordered several things and they arrived packaged well and looking very healthy. Thank you so much!! We will definitely be repeat customers.
