I've ordered from them twice and been very pleased both times with the quality of their large healthy plants in pots. I like the feature on their website showing how many of each item they have in stock. One thing I ordered wasn't actually in stock, but they emailed promptly to let me know and had it back in stock a few months later. Great selection of things that are hard to find elsewhere and good quality plants!

I recently received two Che trees from Rolling River Nursery. As usual, they are excellent quality trees and arrived in excellent shape. Over the past couple of years, I have found that the products Rolling River has provided have been superior to what I have usually been able to get through typical mail order, and I am very grateful for the service they provide. I am a most satisfied customer.

I ordered 4 trees from them in summer of last year. Two peach trees and two plum trees. The plants came well packaged and looking healthy. Followed the directions for planting and watering and all 4 trees wintered over and have shown great growth. Very happy with your product.

I received a response shortly after posting this review and he apologized for the delay and explained they had gotten behind on their emails after taking vacation. He was also kind enough to extend the warranty to spring and will replace if it doesn\'t leaf out. Feeling much better about ordering from them again! :)

Update on the 3 autumn olives. All 3 have pulled through and are leafing out beautifully. The one that had experienced the most stress from shipment is taking a bit longer but I feel comfortable saying it will be just fine.
My brother has since purchased 3 other trees from Rolling River Nursery for me as a gift. 2 Bacon Avocado Seedlings and a Gold Nugget Loquat. Again all 3 were quite banged up in the box but given some time the loquat looks better and one of the avocados perked up. The second avocado is without a doubt dead, all but one leaf has curled up and fallen off but I'm just going to let it go because the owners seem like good people and I don't feel they intentionally send anything they don't expect to to healthy and I'll probably still use Rolling River again in the future because they have so many fruit trees that I have been unable to find elsewhere but be aware that you may need to give the plants some serious tender loving care after the shipment and you may experience some loses.

This was my second season ordering from Rolling River. They were very responsive over the phone and by email. There were some ordering errors in the first year which they very quickly resolved to my satisfaction. In the second year, they were very good in allowing me to change my order and consolidated two orders into one. A refund on shipping was promptly received. Plants came on the promised dates and were well packed. Plants were healthy and of decent size. I like working with this company, and will do so in the future.

I purchased 11 trees from Rolling River Nursery this year. I am so pleased with the size and condition of the trees and the selection that they offer is wonderful. Both time that I received orders UPS did not treat the boxes very nicely however, the trees were packaged by the nursery so well that they were still in good condition. They are very responsive and seem to really want you to be happy with your order. The service level of service provided was awesome. Super nice people, I absolutely would order from them again in the future and would recommend them to friends and family.

I've ordered from most of the edible fruit nurseries out there. I would qualify some as being great, and some... not so great. But I would definitely recommend Rolling River Nursery.

We just had the worst winter ever for fruit trees. We had cold in November and December, then it got up to the 70's in January and February, then later in February it dropped to single digits. My Rolling River trees were not fooled by the false spring like some of my other trees were and the varieties advertised as sturdy norther varieties definitely were because they are just now coming out of dormancy like the well behaved trees they are. Exceptional quality, I wish I had enough space to order more.

For Spring planting in 2012 I ordered 1 of each Red Lake Currant, White Imperial Current, Nova Elderberry, York Elderberry, Black Velvet Gooseberry, Hinnamaki Red Gooseberry and Smokey Serviceberry. I received healthy plants that started very well. I mailed the order Feb 3 and received a call Feb 12 asking when I wanted them shipped. Very happy with the customer service, the bushes and oh my.... the berries.

I have purchased many products from this company over the past few months. This company is incredible. The products are in good condition when arrive and they come when promised. I did have a few plants that lost their leaves after I planted them & they almost insisted that they send replacements. I told them that I would like to wait to see if they bounce back and they seem to be. They check with me to see how they are doing. I send them emails at all hours of the day & night & they often get back to me immediately. I have found my favorite mail order company to deal with, period!

I have about 21 fruit trees all from Dave Wilson nurseries. All of these have been planted over the last 3 years. All arrived bare root, were 2-3 years old with nice sized trunks and well developed root systems. All were planted in Dec, Jan of the year they arrived. All have thrived and grown out quite well. That is until our dynamic duo of two Whippet pups found out they liked to pull up and chew off trees at the ground. I've lost two so far. I'm now using pepper spray to train them away from the trees. With the recent loss of a Mariposa and Beauty plum I went on a late season search for replacements. Rolling River Nursery seemed to be the only online source that still had these trees in stock. I placed an order for three trees over a weekend. A Beauty, Mariposa, and Elephant Heart plum. They were promptly shipped out on the following Monday. Due to a UPS error the delivery was delayed from Friday to the following Monday requiring the trees to be stored in the package over the weekend. Upon arrival they were very well packed and shipped in long narrow planters. The only disappointment was in the overall size and shape of the trees. They appear to be first year saplings. They were tiny be comparison to the bare root trees I'm used to receiving. They were also more expensive. I had higher expectation for trees that cost $25 plus shipping. I typically get 3 year old Dave Wilson trees for about $19 each delivered. Only time will tell how well these trees grow out. They were also on different rootstock than what I'm used to getting on plums. For me Citation has performed very well.

Today, I received the replacement Korean Bush Cherry. This was shipped out to me in one week after I contacted Rolling River Nursery about the dead one. This one looks really healthy, already leafing and branching out. I am now anxiously waiting for the email notifications for persimmons and grapes that they are back in stock. There are many Japanese persimmons, but I wish they would carry a few Korean varieties. They are sooooo sweet and flavorful. I am planning to dry the astringent types. They are a delicacy in Korea.

I have placed many orders now with Rolling River Nursery. One of the reasons I ended up making an account on here was to leave them a review. I used this website to make a choice on whom to purchased from and glad I did. The trees, vines, and other plants I have purchased from Rolling River have been great. I live in Texas and sometimes in shipping some have had issues getting here but they always are willing to take care of that. Highly recommend them! Great service, great people. Really high quality plants, trees, vines. All have done well. Thanks Rolling River! :)

Ordered a white mulberry this past spring from Rolling River, and received a beautiful healthy tree that arrived with three tiny mulberries on it (yes, those three berries were delicious when ripe, lol!) Shipping was fast, tree was securely packaged, and it is growing like mad here in Texas! Great company with a HUGE selection of fruit and nut trees, including many hard to find varieties. Another plus is their customer service is excellent...they quickly responded to questions I emailed them and the answers and info they gave was extremely helpful. Can't wait to order more trees from Rolling River in the future! :)

Have ordered several fruit trees, berry bushes, root plants and rose bush from this company over the past year and a half. I am very pleased with the vast selection of plants and competitive pricing on their website. My plants, with the exception of one tree, are very healthy-I spoke with Marc concerning the one tree and he promptly offered to replace it free of charge! In fact, I was so impressed with the great customer service, I ordered an additional tree. All of the plants have been shipped promptly, in great condition and in nicely moistened packing soil. Will continue to order plants from them.

Wow! first time I ever ordered from this place. I bought 1 Ruby Autumn Olive and 1 Amber Autumn Olive. VERY Impressed with the size of the bushes I received! Very healthy! I highly recommend this company. Ive bought an Autumn Olive from One Green World and it was a quarter of the size of these, literally! I also paid a higher price. It sure is great to still see a company offering old school American quality and size in their products. I will buy from again.

I am really impressed with this company. The quality of their plants are great. I ordered a good number of plants from them. Only one plant I had a problem with, the portion above the graft never grew. After emailing them they sent me a replacement, no problem. I got it only two days after contacting them. I will definitely be ordering from them again. Great customer service! Great Plants!

After reading through the glowing reviews for Rolling Rivers on this website I decided to give them a try. The prices on their products were just too good to pass up so I ordered four seedlings. They responded promptly and I received the package in less than a week. I was very happily surprised when the plants arrived. The only seedling as small as the price is the pine nut tree. The strawberry guava, raisin tree are both 3 feet tall and quite leafy and the cranberry is a small healthy shrub already putting out flowers. I will definitely order from them again!

Rolling River has an easy to navigate website with a fantastic assortment of edibles and natives. Many hard to find items. I have ordered from them a couple of times and the plants have been exceptional quality- especially considering how reasonable the prices are-very healthy and always very carefully and thoughtfully packed. I did have one occasion to make an inquiry, by e-mail, which was answered quickly and completely. I couldn't be more pleased.

Very happy ordering from these guys! I upgraded my shipping to 3 day because of cold weather the week they shipped (shipped shortly after ordering), but the fig tree was packaged so well, it was probably not necessary. Very healthy Negronne fig tree is now coming out of dormancy and is growing fast. Would order from them again no problem!

First time ordering with Rolling River and I was pleased with the whole transaction. Online ordering was easy and healthy, well-packed and labeled plants arrived promptly. All the unusual berry plants I ordered (Sea Buckthorn, PawPaw and Goumi) were reasonably priced. Will certainly return for future orders!

Awesome! One of the best mail order nurseries I have ever dealt with. I have ordered from them 3 times in the last two years. Every order has been expertly packed and promptly shipped. The plants have all been in good shape. I think everything I ordered has been sent in pots rather than bare root, but I have mostly been ordering shrubs and bushes rather than larger trees. I assume they send the larger trees bare root but I don't know.

I have ended up placing half a dozen orders with this company this year. There was only one hiccup with a wrong plant sent by accident, and 1 honeyberry bush which did not survive the trip. The problems were rectified and replacement plants were sent at no charge. All of the fig trees, grape vines, currants and other plants i bought have wonderful growth. It's nice dealing with a company who sends quality plants and takes care of any issues without any hesitation.

Excellent experience with this nursery recently. Ordered several paw paws, pomegranites, persimmons, a fig, etc, and all were expertly packed, healthy good-looking specimens. They notified me they were out of a particular variety of pawpaw and replaced it at my request. This shows me they have genuine varieties, as they could have easily replaced it secretly. The trees were a bit small, but it's much better to get very healthy, robust small trees than weak big ones! Friendly staff, good selection. All in all, very highly recommended nursery.

After a long search for a Picholine olive tree, I found Rolling River Nursery. They have a very nice selection and a nicely organized website. I ended up buying a Nugget hops, Flame grape, Saanichton kiwi, and the Picholine olive. Not only was the olive $20 cheaper then most other nurseries, but the tree was much larger then I was anticipating.

Count me in as another happy customer. I ordered 2 female and one male kiwi and the Verte Fig. Wow the plants are huge and healthy. The kiwi are just leafing out and the fig is still dormant. Came in containers. Well packaged and came a long way to my Georgia home. Answers e-mails quickly, friendly and helpful. I will order from this company again.

I just received my second order from rolling river nursery. I was so impressed with my first order(3 kiwi vines) that I placed a second order for 6 "sunshine " blueberry bushes and kept my fingers crossed. They arrived in 10 days and are the most beautiful plants you could hope for,just like the kiwi vines. I will be ordering again, as the quality,promptness,and packaging are superior to any other nursery I have used, And I've used many! They are on the opposite end of the U.S. from me but well worth the shipping costs which I feel are reasonable.

I made a large and varied order of trees from Rolling River about three months ago. With such a range, I did not expect most of them to thrive. In fact however all of them have. I will be making another order from them this fall. They had run out of several trees that I wanted, so I will be ordering early. Very well packed trees, in very good health.

I've ordered several fruit trees from Rolling River and have been absolutely thrilled with the price, quality and size. The guy I dealt with was very knowledgeable and friendly, and didn't mind spending time answering my many questions. All my trees arrived safely, in great packing. Lots of healthy strong roots in the tree can and no transplant shock. My last order arrived about a month ago. The tree was dormant when I got it, and now it's already leafed out. I will definitely continue ordering from them.

I ordered 12 different plants from them by phone, talked to the guy and the gal at different times. Both very helpful and willing to take time to explain and define the plants. The plants came the next week as promised.Very nicely and cleverly packed. The bamboo stakes enclosed to support plants in the carton a bonus for marking the plants on our vast hillside. Plants look healthy and had good roots. One thing, the website is a little quirky and the shipping list is kind of cryptic, so take notes on what you are ordering. I would definitely recommend them to anybody.

My plants got to me in absolute pristine condition! Very well packed, none of those nasty white thingies, just good old newspaper!
The plants are 3 to 4 feet tall, have nice deep roots, about 30 cm long, they are well established, not crowded.
The plants have next years buds, and the earthworms that fell out of the pots tell me the soil is healthy!
Organic, can't ask for anything more!
I will be ordering again!!
Thank you, thank you!!
