The absolute BEST perennials I have ever ordered on-line. Ordered two kinds of buddleia (6 total) , muhly,and salvia. The root balls were huge, packing A+++++, and the plants began sprouting new leaves in the three days between unpacking and planting. Better root systems by far, and healthier plants than I have purchased locally for 4x the price.Extra surprise was wonderful!!! All the plants were obviously several years growth, and I can't wait til spring to see them burst into leaf and flower, with those well established root systems.
I want to say thanks for the listing!
I will definiately be back-having dug three new garden beds.

Another wonderful plant delivery from VG! The 'plugs' have better root systems than plants in much, much larger containers. She packs with care, once again, caring about her plants and people!
Got a couple more beautiful buddleias, beautifully shaped. I will definitely be back for more......and more!
At her prices I can afford some annuals, lantana in particular that I have trouble germinating, and that I love. I purchased 6 for the price of 1 at the local nursery!!

For anyone reading this - I placed an order for some nectar and larval host plant plugs, liners and trees from Vincent Gardens and received my order today.
Thank you Donna!!!
Woooooooo doggie!!! The plugs and liners have exceptional root systems. The size and shape of the plants is equally outstanding! The plants arrived in great shape and were packaged better than I've ever seen! I tell you, I've been ordering plants online for years and I've never seen any packaged and shipped this well.
The plant plugs and liners are really, really much too good for the price Vincent Gardens is selling them for!!!
I really, really, reeeeeeealy have to gloat - I made out like a bandit!!!
I've seen plants at the local nurseries much smaller than what I got selling for triple the price she has them at. I even went so far as to compare prices to other online plant companies and ebay and every single company I saw had prices that were three to even six or seven times more expensive - and their shipping costs were outrageous.
I am telling you folks - you need to get your orders in now before she has to move them into bigger pots! Considering all that I received and by the looks of the plant size and plug root system it will be any day now.
I'm telling ya'll - do it now before the peak butterfly and hummingbird season is upon us!!!
The butterflies and hummies will be doing the happy dance for many years to come!!!
ps...forgot to mention I also ordered several paw paw trees, tulip trees and hop trees - the root systems are fantastic and the trees are well developed and truly an exceptional size. They have new buds forming and are coming out of dormancy. Perfect timing!!!
I'd been wanting to grow paw paw trees for several years and they were always too expensive online and I won't even get into the shipping costs some companies charge. Heck, I'm ashamed to admit it but last year I paid more for five measely paw paw seeds (which never grew) than I paid for the one of the well established trees I bought from Vincent Gardens!!!
Donna is extremely pleasant and I will surely be ordering from her over and over again!!!

This the first time ordering from Donna, aka Vincent Gardens. I must say I was very surprised when my grasses came in. They were so big and healthy. She also sent me a thank you gift.
When I ordered them I told her I was going in for a shoulder operation, she asked when I wanted shipped and she did as I asked with no problem.
This a great place to get plants.
Thank you Donna

I purchased several plants from this company and was VERY impressed at how healthy they all were. The root systems were all MASSIVE!
I will also admit that the plants I received have been more healthy than any other mail order catalog I have ordered from. You can see the care and attention she gives each item. AND, the packing was perfect. Thanks so much Donna for having your awesome plants available.

I ordered Muhly Grass, Salvia 'Red Velvet', Salvia 'Purple Majesty', Salvia 'Argentina', and Buddleia 'Royal Red'. WOW!!! The plants were not even wilted from shipping! Although the box had received rough treatment en route, the plants were in outstanding condition. Donna really knows how to package them for a long trip. The Salvias are the deepest lush green I've ever seen. These plants will be wonderful additions to my butterfly and hummingbird garden. Thanks, Donna!

I purchased a 'San Carlos Festival' salvia through DG Marketplace. The plant is large and beautiful with a wonderful root system. Packing was excellent and shipping was super fast. Communication was perfect too. I will look forward to buying more plants from this great vendor. Thanks, Donna!

Update: The plants received in my second order were fantastic - easily the nicest perennials ever purchased online. These are blooming-size plants, not small liners. Packing was perfect. Plants were shipped when expected and email confirmation was provided. Donna's friendly service makes the whole experience a joy. I highly recommend Vincent Gardens!
I am new to DG and did research before making any purchases. I purchased purple dome aster that arrived beautifully wrapped and carefully packed. I was able to easily transfer the plant into my garden. It remained very healthy for the remainder of the summer and fall. Looking forward to seeing my plant come back this year. Thank you Vincent Gardens!
The plants I received from Donna were perfect and the packing and shipping were the best that I have encountered in my experience with online nurseries. It was a pleasure to deal with Vincent Gardens and I intend to order from them in the future.

I bought 2 Salvia 'Hot Lips' plants from this vendor on DG Marketplace. They arrived fast, well packaged, and had MASSIVE root systems! They took right off when I planted them out and have been flowering their lil ol' hearts out ever since. It gets better, they sent a freebie plant and it is one I always wanted to grow! I can't recommend this seller enough!
