Did really want to like this nursery because their selection of plants is very interesting and seems like they would work well for a permaculture garden. The website is attractive and seems easy to us with good descriptions for plants and their care. Their employees and customer support sound like nice people.

I have ordered from Burnt Ridge, Raintree, Rolling River nursery, and Nourse farms so am using those for comparison. First, although their prices are good, their plants are very small as has been echoed by other reviewers. Second, they regularly offer plants on their website which show as available which are actually out of stock. Customer support was decent at times and non existent at other times, especially if you try calling instead of emailing.

We'll see how the plants do in the soil, they'll definitely need a lot of protection in their first year but they look alive and the shipping was timely.

Ordered plants in February, waited 2 weeks before emailing them to see when when my plants would ship and got a reply a couple days later saying that they were going to be shipped in 2-3 weeks. 5 weeks later and still nothing so I emailed them again saying If they weren't shipping this week I'd like a refund. Later that day I got a email saying it would be looked into. Nice reply time at least. The next day I got a shipping notice, yay! But they were sending them by ground shipping so the bareroot plants were in the mail for a week (not what I expect when paying for shipping on live plants.) The plants arrived looking a bit wilted but overall alright, they apparently ran out of two of the plants I had ordered and didn't notify me beforehand or anything but said on the invoice I could get a refund or wait till fall for them to ship... They did sent me a free sunchoke plant (a different variety than what the one I ordered that they ran out of.)
Overall the plants seem to be good and as far as I know the shipping was a fluke, but it still makes me hesitant to order from them again.
