Have almost always received healthy, vigorous and well rooted plants. Will never complain about the size-that's why they're priced the way they are. My primary problem with this vendor is the packing. If they read through all of their negative feedback postings they may see a common theme. I don't think I've ever received a shipment that didn't have some broken branches or leaves from being jostled about and chafed by those pain in the box peanuts! Once I received a Leonard Messel magnolia that was completely defoliated by the time I got it. To Pat's credit it was promptly replaced (no pictures required, no questions asked) but it seems like a heck of a way to do business. If they they want some better ideas on how to pack mail order plants they only need to place an order with High Country Gardens (now that man knows how to pack a shipment), Brushwood Nurseries (for shipping vines) or Logee's who ships similar size perennials. Musser Forests even does a better job with just plain old newspaper!

We have ordered from Bluestone for two years, and not just a little bit of plants we have ordered ALOT of plants. We have ordered atleast 4 Perennial border packs (roughly 350 plants altogether) and probably about 100 mis other plants including shrubs. I am very pleased of all the plants we ordered only about 5 have died, they were from a two year ago order...we contacted Bluestone and even though it was from two years ago they gave us a credit to order more shrubs next Spring. I beleive the Perennial Border packs are a good money saving way to get plants as we now buy them for our clients. Where else for under $100 dollars can you get 65 or so Perennial Plants?

I purchased plants from Bluestone for the 1st time during their 1/2 off sale. I bought daylilies, columbines, and a gaillardia fanfare. I have never purchased plants online before and decided to go with them because of all of the positive reviews I've read here. My plants arrived in great shape and were packaged very well. I waited 3 days to plant them to get them acclimated. So far my daylilies and gaillardia are holding their own. I'm not too sure about the columbines yet. If my plants survive and flourish I will definitely buy from them again. I have another "wish list" of plants in mind.


On July 16th, 2010, daisy96 changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:

This is a follow-up to how my plants are doing 2 years later. The daylilies are doing just fine and the gaillardia fanfare is still small but blooming nicely. I would buy these plants again. I bought 3 different columbines at that time and one of them is barely hanging on. I will not buy their columbines again.
On July 16th, 2010, daisy96 added the following:

Last year I ordered their pre-planned Butterfly Garden and several other plants. This is a follow-up. Rabbits have totally destroyed my echinacea purpurea, coreopsis early sunrise, monarda raspberry wine, and stokesia color wheel. Several of the plants in the set came in packs of 3 but not all of them made it. I bought another columbine and again it didn't make it.

My first experience with Bluestone was a pleasant one. Their lilies are the ONLY thing thriving in my beds right now, during a record-breaking heatwave and drought. I think their plants are secretly part cactus. :p

When I need plants for less-than-ideal locations and poor soil quality, I will seek out Bluestone in the future.

I ordered in May, and now my plants are huge and everything is in bloom! The only exception are the aquilegia's, but they are still growing. I knew to expect small plants, because in the past I have ordered from Spring Hill (which I will NEVER waste my money with that company again). However, these plants were very healthy, and have really taken off. The perennial sunflower which is supposed to be 4-6 feet tall is already over a foot. This is wonderful for a mail order company, after only a month or so. The daylilly actually bloomed before the ones from Oakes Daylillies. I will order again, this time I will wait until the end of May for the half price sale. (I missed it by a few weeks..) I will also be ordering fall bulbs, hopefully they will be great also!

Thanks Bluestone!

I was not impressed with my plants I received from Bluestone. I ordered 11 Lavender plants and only 3 have survived. A few were okay looking when received but for the most part they were scrawny, dried up and dead or dying. The Campanula were also anemic and are trying to hold on but we'll see.
I contacted Bluestone and they have promised to replace them but I have as yet to get anything from them. I hope the replacements are in better standing than the original.
To member Shriver in Boston - check out Santa Rosa Gardens. Outstanding plants, shipping practices, and service.

You should expect them in September. I have every faith that you will find them to be the vigorous healthy plants you expected originally. Again, our apologies for the condition of your plants upon arrival. We will make every effort to regain your trust."

I've ordered from Bluestone many many times, and I have always been pleased! I especially like that I can send back my packing peanuts for cheap, and they issue a "free shipping" voucher for your next order! I must have three of those vouchers hanging around for next time. So for the $2 it costs to send back the box with just peanuts, I get almost $8+ on free shipping on my next order - can't beat that!! I almost always buy the plants on "Special". And they always arrive in decent shape and do very well after planting. Only once or twice I've had to contact them about something that didn't survive, and they are always right on top of sending out a replacement. After spending hundreds of dollars at local nurseries, Home Depot, and Lowe's, I love that it's a Lifetime Guarantee at Bluestone. Can't get my money back at the other places! I am very very pleased with this company, and will continue to shop with them!

I ordered plants both last spring and in the fall. The plants appear small when they arrive but given a year (or winter) I am pleased with all of them. Everything I planted last spring is the size of what I'd get at my local nursery or bigger, best of all I get varieties that I can't find find locally.

The plants I planted last fall survived the Iowa winter and all all doing great. I'm anxious to see how these newer plants bloom this fall.

I am awaiting my plants I ordered this winter, but have no doubt they will flourish as well. Bluestone Perinials is my FAVORITE mail order company.

Update - June 13
I received my spring order and planted everything. The plants I ordered last fall are thriving. My saliva, rudibeckia look at if they are on steriods. When I received my spring plants I did have 2 plants that died after planting. I called customer servie and they immediately said they would reship new plants to me. I also learned about their late spring clearance sale so I order 4 different dianthus plants. Again all plants arrived and after planting have taken off. I will continue to order from Bluestone.

This was my first purchase with Bluestone Perennials. I bought some plants during their recent spring sale. I am IMPRESSED with the plants I rec'd! They literally looked better than the plants I would have gotten from my local nursery. They are large and healthy. The packing was done with much care. A couple of leaves were broken, but nothing major that would make me hesitate to order from them again. I give this company an A+++!

I ordered from the end-of-season special offers, so I knew that the plants would probably have deadheaded stems, a few browning leaves and so on; I also expected them to be quite small. But I thought the prices were very good and there were some interesting plants I fancied so I ordered. I received an acknowledgment, an order number and the information that they would email me when the plants were shipped. Just over a week later I got an email stating they were being shipped, but with a different order number, which was confusing. They arrived when scheduled - several of the stems were broken, quite possibly by me when I was trying to find them and get them out of those damn packing peanuts (which my puppy loved cos they got everywhere). However the plants seemed OK for the money and as I'd expected.
Then I realised that the set of dianthus I ordered was missing. They didn't send a packing note, so I emailed to find out why and got an email back saying they were out of stock and I hadn't been billed. I checked, and that was correct, but I would have expected them to notify me that they were not able to fulfil my order. I'd even got the place for them all ready...

Not the world's worst experience, but far from the best. I'd expected better.

Ordered 3 complete kits (butterfly garden, perennial starter garden etc.) Plants were not huge but all were healthy and arrived in great shape. I don't think any haven't survived and almost all are flourishing. I sent the company an email thanking them for the great service and mentioned what I assumed had been a substitution (2 of a certain cultivar sent instead of 1 each of different cultivars) and they immediately sent me the missing original. What a refreshing change from most of today's customer 'service' departments. I will definitely use this company again!

This year, for the first time, I purchased plants and seeds by mail rather than waiting for my local garden centers to get their stock. I ordered from 3 companies: Bluestone, White Flower Farm, and Burpee. I've reviewed all three.

I ordered several plants on-line from Bluestone: two clematis and three packs each of Gaillardia, Coreopsis, and Echinacea. When I called the company about my order and the rep learned that I'd hoped to receive the plants in time to plant them before I left on vacation, she made a special effort to rush my order (during a very hectic shipping time) which I greatly appreciated. (White Flower Farm did the same thing.- Burpee was another story. See that review.)

The plants arrived quickly, were well-packaged and in good shape. The plants are small but the prices are good, so they are still a good value, and they arrived in mostly good condition. The Gaillardia was a little wilted but revived quickly in the ground. I planted everything about three weeks ago and the Gaillardia already has buds on it.

My rating for this company is positive. Prompt shipping, good customer service, and plants that are a good value. I would definitely order again.

I have been ordering from Bluestone Perennials for 14 years and have always had excellent results. Their customer service is awesome. Plants arrive in excellent condition and thrive once in the ground. Plant sizes are small, but quality great. My 1/2 acre garden is made up mostly of plants from them. If for whatever reason the plants dont make it despite your best care, a simple email always results in a no questions asked money back/replacement guarantee. I have shopped with other online nurseries before, but this is the only one I use and recommend to all my gardening friends. Highly recommended.

Posted on April 8, 2010, updated May 25, 2010
I ordered 20+ perennials from Bluestone a couple of weeks ago and requested that they send them at their earliest mailing date for my region. They arrived as scheduled, with emails sent ahead of time letting me know when to expect them and letting me track the package so I could ask my husband to go directly home from work to unpack them on the day they were to arrive.

I didn't see the packaging because my husband unpacked them, but he said that it was very good and that only 1 plant was a little dry, even though we had temps in the 80s for most of that week (highly abnormal for this part of VA this time of year). All of the plants arrived in good shape, and those that have been planted are doing fine, even though we had record-breaking (93+) temps this past week. I'd been worried that such little plants wouldn't stand a chance in this heat so soon after being planted, but I've been watering them every day and they're looking great.

Note that the plants were extremely healthy, but SMALL compared to what I usually would buy at a local garden store. I ordered because they carried varieties that I had never seen locally. They are a good value (so far) for that type of purchase, but for more common varieties, I'll stick with the local garden store.

I'll definitely order again.


On May 25th, 2010, gianetta added the following:

6 weeks update: All perennials are thriving (except for the two eaten by critters...) and have grown at an incredible rate - you wouldn't believe that these are the same plants that arrived in tiny pots 6 weeks ago. The violets have been blooming on and off since they arrived, and the obedient plants have flower buds on them. The Siberian irises probably are too small to bloom this summer, but they're looking very healthy and are growing well. The sea holly is small, but blooming beautifully.

As I said in my original post, the value is not there IF you are buying COMMON varieties that you can get locally - you'll get bigger plants for the same price at a good local nursery, but for things like sweet violets that they just don't carry at my local nurseries, Bluestone's plants are small, but extraordinarily healthy. I definitely will order again.

They looked like they belonged on the bargain shelf at Walmart. My Hydrangeas looked healthier than the latter, but were amazingly small (only 3-4 inches across).

I've bought from Bluestone for 4 years now. Every order comes in super healthy, extra care is also shown in how the plants are placed "in the box" so all arrive perfect, they ALL appear to be "fresh" out the soil. I really was amazed. Every one of them survived and thrived during my 4 years dealing with Bluestone. Customer Service is excellent, although I only needed to call to add more plants to my order. One Echinacea plant was backordered for Fall 2010, but they just shipped it stating they found one "and hope this doesn't disturbe your Spring planting schedule." It didn't. If I ran an online nursery I'd model it after Bluestone Perennials. I'm picky.

This is my second year ordering from Bluestone. Again I am quite pleased with my selections. I ordered from several sales, one I believe in Jan, and another late Feb. They automatically combined my orders. Now this shouldn't be cause for applause but considering all the internet sellers who don't even confirm your order, I was very pleased to see this. They kept me updated when it came to shipping time, and the plants were only in transit one day (well I do live in Ohio).

One comment about the packing peanuts. They make me crazy too. Of course we opened the box and they went flying. They are biodegradable, as noted in the BStone info. In fact, I found two that had already done so, the next mornig in my front yard, after the rain. Only tiny pieces left which dissolved when I picked them up.
Also not that if you return the box and packing materials you receive free shipping on your next order.
BStone is one of the few nurseries to stil grow almost all their own plants. They are my go to place for all my standard pernennials, and some new ones to try out..

You can't go wrong! Nice peple, good plants, safe shipping and a guarantee that works. Thanks Bluestone!

I ordered my plants from Bluestone for Spring 2009 delivery. I ordered 3 types of grasses, and one type of flower. Everything arrived looking healthy. One flowering plant died soon afterward. However, the company replaced it, and in a very prompt manner.

The grasses I ordered were Dwarf Blue Fescue, Dwarf Fountain Grass, and Morning Light . They did fantastic, and I am looking forward to seeing their beauty again this year. I was amazed at how much they grew and how good they looked for plants that were just a few weeks into the ground.

Now for the negative part of my experience. I am working on a spot where I want all blue flowers. Not purple, but blue. Even though the photo showed blue flowers, prior to making my order, I called Bluestone to be sure of the color. I was told that yes, the flowers would be blue.

They are not. The plant name is Campanula Blue Clips. This is not a case of a flower being so purple that perhaps some would call it blue. The purple shade is slightly darker than a lilac, and not even close to blue.

That was a pretty big disappointment. Even though the plants are healthy, I am going to have to dig them up, as they are not what I want for that area.

A plant I ordered this year was shipped via UPS on a Friday, so it sat in a hot UPS truck over the weekend and took 4 days to arrive instead of the normal 2. Needless to say, it did not survive. To their credit, they sent a replacement plant and said they would issue a refund (which I haven't seen yet). Also, their idea of packing is to stick the pot (soil uncovered and unwrapped) in a box and then fill the box with plastic peanuts (not environmentally friendly)--not the best way to insure healthy arrival.

Wonderful company to deal with!! Great customer service!

I placed my very first order of four plants from Bluestone (based on Garden Watchdog reviews) in early September 2009. I received the order in late September. Unfortunately one plant was backordered & two had a bug problem. I was disappointed & concerned that I'd made a mistake. I called customer service & explained the problem. They couldn't have been more accommodating! They gave me several options & I decided to have the plants reshipped in spring. Even though one of the plants was fine, they insisted on sending another one, "just-in-case". I planted the first one last Autumn & it is now coming up beautifully.

I placed another, much larger, order about a week ago, adding to it by phone several times. Most of the items were on special, many at 50% off. Because I already had replacements coming from last Autumn, they didn't charge me any additional shipping, even though it was a much larger order.

I just received the huge box earlier today. Everything was carefully packaged. Most everything looks very good. Some items are quite large, much larger than expected. A few of the items showed some signs of stress & too much moisture, but should be just fine when planted. Just in case, I called to let them know. Cathy contacted one of the nurserymen just to make sure the plants would be O.K., but assured me that if I'm dissatisfied, even after they've been planted for a while, to let them know & they'd take care of it.

Oh, one more thing. I ordered three shrubs & they included little fertilizer tablets for each one. I don't know, maybe that's a common practice, but I'm impressed.

I will definitely be doing business with Bluestone Perennials again & will be recommending them.

I have ordered from this company many times and have always been satisfied with the quality of both the plants and the service. This year, I think Bluestone outshone even their own good record. I placed an order in February, knowing that I would be out of state during the two weeks of prime planting time for our area. I sent a message to Bluestone with the order, asking if we could establish an exact shipping date in May so I could be assured that someone would be available to care for the plants when they arrived. They emailed me back immediately and we decided on a shipping date that would work for me. This week, Bluestone shipped the plants on exactly the date they promised way back in February, even though that is outside their normal shipping time for our zone. Great customer service!

I placed my first order based on reviews here. The plants arrived in great shape and were as described. Unfortunately, none of one variety of rudbeckia that I planted survived the winter. The customer service was quick and top notch resolving the problem right away. I would not hesitate to order from them again...when I can figure out where to put more plants!

I received my replacement plants along with an additional order. Everything was packed safely and arrived in great shape. Their customer service as been outstanding and I would (and did) certainly recommend them.

This is my first time ordering from Bluestone Perennials, but I will definitely be placing another order. Everything I bought was on special, so quite a bargain and I even had a coupon for 3 mystery plants. All plants were received in good condition and quite a bit larger than I had expected. The 3 mystery plants are awesome; love every one of them and cannot wait to plant my order.
