I ordered 4 grape ivy plants from Studley Flower Gardens and not only were they shipped immediately using 2 day priority, but they are absolutely beautiful. They were much larger than I expected, having purchased from another vendor previously. The plants were wrapped in such a way that absolutely no damage happened and the soil was still moist. It's a long way from NH to OR. I can't say enough good things!
I wanted oak leaf ivy...I went through Glasshouse Works who sent me grape leaf ivy's that were TINY stems with a couple of leaves (nevermind I have those already, it's taking over my house and don't need it) not to mention i am still fighting them to get my money back.
Then I tried Hirts gardens who sold them to me then only shipped the other plant I ordered saying on the paper with the plant that they had refunded me on the oak leaf ivies, out of stock- the other plant was BIG and healthy and beautiful but way to let me know the others are out of stock- geez. That is the third time I have found them advertising and selling stock they don't actually have.
THEN I got one on ebay from a private seller and the seller said he couldn't ship to my location and refunded me.
What does it take in this world to get a simple Oak Leaf Ivy or two?? An act of congress?
Studley Flower Gardens was the last and should have been the FIRST. 2 Oak leaf ivies have arrived and I am stunned. They are 4 inchers, very healthy, & were rootbound on arrival and ready to go immediately into 6 inch pots rather than just top off the soil that had fallen out during shipping. The tops are really big and lush and perfectly fit the 6 inch pot so they don't look small, odd or like an orphan in an empty field. And they shipped in a decent time. FINALLY! I absolutely LOVE them.
This was my first purchase from Studleys, I am recommending them, and I'm fairly sure this won't be my last purchase as I am a plantaholic. Next time I'm checking Studley's FIRST. THANK YOU Studleys.

I ordered a brown bud allamanda on 1/25/13 and although they didn't have any in stock they offered to refund the charge or wait for a cutting-available to ship in May. I agreed to the cutting offer since NYC doesn't warm up until May anyway. Long story short-the cutting arrived yesterday, was big and healthy with ample roots for the small price I paid and was packed with a lot of care. Definitely will do business with them again!
They promptly sent beautiful plants, reasonably priced and beautifully packed. They also followed up with an email to check how things arrived. I will definitely order from them again and recommend them highly.
I ordered a Spring cactus (which I haven't been able to find anywhere else) and couldn't have been happier with the service and the shipping. The plant was very well packaged, was in great shape when I received it and the service was excellent. I'm looking forward to visiting the next time I'm up in New Hampshire.
Excellent service. I had a few plant that were somewhat sick and damaged from the mail. I emailed Studley flower garden, and I got a reply within half a day. They emediately sent me two new plants, which were vibrant and healthy, asking no charge for shipping or the replacement plants. I would give the a 100% satisfaction rating and same rating on the customer service. This is how you hope all online business' will treat you. Thanks again for the cuban oregano or spanish thyme. I transplanted them and they couldn't look better.

My plants arrived quickly, they were well packaged and Studley's was nice enough to follow up with me to make sure I was satisfied with my plant order. I would definitely order from again-What a great experience.
I've been a plant nut for over 40 years and have a masters degree in horticulture. The plants I got from Studley are among the BEST I've ever gotten anywhere in terms of quality and size!! What a great value for the price too!!
I am super impressed with their company and give them my highest recommendation.
The plants arrived in record time. They were very well packed with only one little stem broken. The plants were very big and well worth the cost and shipping. I will happily order from this grower again. When I emailed a question, it was answered immediately. Thank you for your assistance and for the beautiful plants.

I just received 4 plants from Studley's in a very timely manner. I must report that I have never received such large, healthy plants as this from any other of the 10 companies that I have ordered from in the past. I paid a very low price for top quality, health plants. I highly recommend this company

The site had beautiful picture and was easy to use. I love the section: YOU LIVE IN A CAVE. My new home has few windows and little light. Studley's site told me exactly which plants would thrive in my home, and they were right. All my new plants arrived carefully wrapped in perfect condition. I would throughly recommend this site. http://www.ftdfloristsonline.com/studleygreenhouse/index.htm...
