I am an avid gardener from Cincinnati. I am also a professional Landscape Architect. My experiences with this company have been nothing short of perfect. I have ordered their live Cross Vine (Bignonia capreolata - multiple cultivars) starter plants on multiple occasions for potting up and growing to a larger size so that I can eventually grow them on the pergola over my back patio. The plants were in excellent shape when they arrived and the packing job was obviously done by someone who cares deeply about doing everything they can to ensure the plants' survival during shipping. I definitely recommend them as a purveyor of high-quality mail order live plants!

Georgia Vines is everything you always want in a company and thankfully lacks those things you never want. I've ordered twice and both experiences were remarkably positive. Response and update was prompt both times, shipment was nearly immediate, my order was packaged carefully and plants arrived big and healthy.

I had really good germination rates from the Lotus seed I ordered from them and their shipping was quick too.

Georgia Vines has fast shipping and quick helpful customer service. I really like the way they have postage included in the seed price. The Hibiscus seeds I ordered look VERY healthy.

Ordered up banana and passion vine seeds. Ordered them on the 15th, they shipped on the 17th, and arrived on the 19th, started soaking on the 20th. Liked the free shipping. Didn't check out Passionvinecottage.com until after I ordered... the same seeds were 30% or so off but I think you pay for shipping (I couldn't tell). Same company? All seeds looked good (only one floater in 40 seeds). Will buy again come spring.

Boy that Travis Rubel is a nice guy. I recently ordered 2 packs of White Sky Vine seeds. They never came. I checked the with the post office. They told me that they had delivered them. They weren't delivered to my house if they were delivered. After a bit of searching, I found a phone number for GA Vines that I could get through to. Travis answered and assured me that it was no problem and that the product would be replaced. Since they were out of seeds he sent me a VERY HEALTHY plant and sent priority even though my first order was not. That's good customer service. I look forward to doing business with these guys in the future.

I just received an order from Georgia Vines. I think this is my 4th or 5th order total so I have a little bit of history with this company. I've never had a problem and have been pleased with their product, packaging, communication, and response time. The entire process is always so easy and without problem that I look forward to continue doing business with this company.

I went to Georgia Vines originally because I was searching for Vigna caracalla seeds online, and I found this shop. I found myself like a crazy gardener in a seed store paradise (kid in a candy store?). Service was great and I've ordered from Georgia Vines a few times since.

I made a very small order, and my seeds arrived quickly. I like the variety present at Georgia Vines- and I love the fact that they have a way to isolate plants for different zones. I'm pretty certain I'll be ordering from GV in the future. :)

I do have to change my rating to positive, after a bit of a wild ride. I eventually got an apology from the son, Travis, who also sent me additional seeds--several varieties of the same type of plant I had originally ordered.
Lori saw my posting on Dave's Garden, and additionally replied. She went above and beyond, and sent me 6 lives plants at her own expense. I got a sweet note, and was surprised by the nice ending to the whole experience.

I ordered an Elephant creeper vine, Orange Clock vine, and an Orchid vine. My order arrived in a timely manner and plants were well packaged. I was most impressed with the size, the vines were described as starter plants, but were larger than I expected. The condition of the vines was excellent, soil intact and still moist, with no broken branches. They weren't even wilted from the journey. I was able to find vines that were largely unavailable through most places. Great job, Georgia Vines!

I would like to change my formerly "Negative" rating to "Positive". Travis of Georgia Vines responded and apologized for sending the datura seeds mis-identified as brugmansia seeds. The seeds had been purchased by Georgia Vines from another company and none had yet been germinated by Georgia Vines at the time they were sold to me. Georgia Vines has agreed to replace the mis-identified seeds with new seeds of my choosing. I appreciate Travis' quick action on this and his courtesy.

I am now changing my rating of Georgia Vines to negative, as I found the receipt for my plant when I was paying my credit card bill. The instructions state to "keep me in a non direct sunshine spot near some shade." So I did not read the directions wrong, as I was told by Travis at Georgia Vines! I did exactly what they stated I should do. Who knows why the plant died, the mailing might have been too much for it, but I don't appreciate the finger pointing when I followed the instructions perfectly.
On June 23rd, 2011, redlandsgarden changed the rating from negative to positive and added the following:
Travis called me up and offered to send me a new plant. He said he misunderstood my email, and thought that I had put the plant into direct light. I thought that was very nice of them to take the initiative like that when they discovered that I was dissatisfied. Even if this new plant doesn't make it, I think they're terrific for making the extra effort for their customers.
On August 5th, 2011, redlandsgarden added the following:
Just wanted to add some more followup. Travis sent me a very healthy looking new plant right away, and gave me some adjusted instructions for caring for it. It did much better, stayed alive and looked healthy for a few weeks. It has shown no new growth and is now starting to slowly dry up starting at the vine tips. They sent me a healthy plant and their new instructions were good... if I lose this plant, I know that it was due to the environment here... and I'll finally give up on this vine and get a white mandevilla instead!

I placed an order with georgia vines and I'm very pleased with the price and the promptness of shipping. I was able to find a particular morning glory that I had just discovered and had been wanting. It is the morning glory Jamie Lynn and my name is Jamie Lynn!! I was very excited to find it on their site at a reasonable price! I will most definately order from them again!

I ordered some passionflower seed from georgiavines back in February. I waited a week, and the seeds had not arrived. Panicking, I wrote them. Within a few hours, they responded, and re-sent my order, no questions asked. I believe it was the USPS that created my problem, but they did not question me, and were polite and quick to respond. I promised I'd post a review when my seed sprouted. Passionflower sometimes takes up to a year to do so, but mine are peeking up and taking off! Thanks again to the folks at GEORGIAVINES.COM for being so kind and helpful :)

I found GEORGIA VINES on eBay when I was looking for unusual vines. I placed an order online and got the plants very quickly. 3 of the vines were about 12" long and I was very impressed with them. One vine (antigonon) was barely a 2" piece of thread with one leaf on it. It had barely any roots and should NEVER have been sent. 2 ruellias I bought were also tiny,short stem and one leaf-barely rooted cuttings.

I found Lori Rubel's website, " Georgia Vines" when I was looking for new kinds of Milkweeds to grow. I found many new and ususual Asclepias and placed two seed orders.Both came promptly and with excellent germination instructions. I am now planning to order more seed and I'm looking over her plant selection as well.

All the plants arrived promptly, and I was really happy that I was home when they did. I took them out of their wrapping and followed your instructions to the letter. Sure they looked a little stressed, but they perked up after the following day. I also gave them a light misting of water in the evening, for the first week they were under my care. The main trick with passion flower vines is to keep them moist, with good drainage. They are now in their hanging basket getting settled in to start growing into mature vines. They are good healthy little starts,and it was great doing business with your garden. Thanks, Stan

I hate to be the first one to leave a negative feedback here, but I am very unhappy with my experience with Georgia Vines.
On September 5th, 2008, robcorreia changed the rating from negative to positive and added the following:
I finally heard back from Georgia Vines. She was very kind and right away offered to replace the plants I received in bad condition with new ones, which she did promptly.
Although the plants are indeed just starters with a baby root system - and I believe this should be stated more clearly on the website - I will turn my rating to a positive. Customer service to me is extremely important, and I did feel valued as a customer when she offered to help improve my experience in any way she could. The replacements I received came in much better condition.
I will be happy to buy from them again when shopping for hard to find vines I cannot purchase as larger specimens elsewhere.

I purchased an italian jasmine plant from this company at Daves Marketplace. Lori was very helpful, she sent the required information & it was a smooth transaction. However, i received a showy jasmine plant. I informed Lori of the mix up & she IMMEDIATELY responded with an apology & PROMPTLY sent me an italian jasmine plant.

In all the excitement i forgot to write a note about the packaging. I think it deserves special mention.
Perfect, Professional is what comes to mind. Very nicely done. & the special note to the postal carrier to leave it in an area away from the hot sun adds a nice touch & keeps the plants from overheating.
Thanks again Lori.

I am very happy with my macadamia seedling. It was shipped in less than a week and arrived in healthy condition. It was well packaged and even had directions for the postman to put it in the shade for me. :) Instructions were included in the packaging and some were e-mailed to me and I really appreciated it because I never received a seedling in the mail. I would definitely shop here again!

Always easy to deal with. Have ordered banana seeds several times(ebay, and store), and had very good germination percentages. I'm glad someone has some of the more rare banana seeds in the US, otherwise you have to order more than you need from over seas.
