These plants have not taken to the uprooting and shipping at all. Most of the plants look like barren sticks. It is now almost mid-may and all of my non-Dimeo blueberry bushes are showcasing beautiful foliage, where as the largest leaf on the Dimeo plants are no larger than a dime. ALL of the leaf buds that were on the plants that i received turned brown, and there has been no leaf growth. the two Chandler's i got look like they will all but die, they do not have 1 leaf anywhere on them. The 3 heirloom plants i got, also have about 3 leaves each on them. Four of the plants t, went to a friend, who added these to his existing blueberry garden. They as well look like sticks with 6 leaves being the most on any 1 plant. I just bought beautiful 4 foot bushes from Happy Valley in NJ, for 15$ and next to the Dimeo plants they look like filet compared to chopped liver. My soil sports a ph of 4.7 and my pre-existing early season blueberry bushes have wonderful foliage and berries on them. In all fairness I am going to leave my review as Neutral and give the plants a full growing season to see how the turn out. Two of the plants had 4-6 flowers on them, which i pulled off in hopes to encourage root growth. I will cross my fingers and hope for the best.
On August 8th, 2011, Pitcom changed the rating from neutral to negative and added the following:
These turned out to be a horrible investment. Of the 13 blueberry bushes we planted, 3 actually look like they may be worth keeping. Many of the tops of the twigs turned black with rot, and the leaves have all remained very small with no new growth. However, all of these twigs are being replaced this fall. For anyone considering spending money at Dimeo, do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. The videos, and hype about "premium" blueberry bushes, that Dimeo portrays in his videos is a complete and total scam. I tried to be positive with my reviews, especially in my first comment stating i was happy with the process. However, I would sooner tape a picture of a blueberry bush to a stick and plant that in my garden than one of these "not so premium" sticks that Dimeo sends out. Buyer beware, that is all i can say.
And by the way, I've seen 2 foot of growth from some of the other bushes I've purchased from other highly rated vendors here. and the bushes i purchased from HV. I'm so glad I did not place my entire blueberry purchase with Dimeo Farms.

Of the 10 plants I purchased 10 months ago, only 4 survived to produce green leaves this spring. Three had to be cut back and are barely 5 inches high now. Only one plant produced blueberries - a handful. The 5 dead ones were replaced with big bushy plants I bought at Lowes for half the price. So far, they are all doing quite well.

Wow!! I hadn't read this before posting my review:
"" HATERS: In addition, our farm now has 2 online-based "mail order" plant competitors (and so far just one local plant competitor) who have, and continue to set up fake Dave's Garden profiles on this website in an intentional and malicious attempt to try to smear us with fake customer horror stories so they can have a chance at getting the business instead of our farm and nursery.
FACT: When you drive or fly out to tour our our farm and nursery operation, within the first 90 seconds of your visit, you will know that 100% of the fake negatives below are totally and completely false. WE ONCE AGAIN INVITE YOU TO DRIVE (or fly out) TO PERSONALLY TOUR OUR IMPRESSIVE OPERATION AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE FOR YOURSELF ""
I just want to say that I am not a "fake."

In reading some of these post I believe that they have the wrong company. I just finished my first season in northern new jersey. We fought off the deer and had the biggest berries I ever seen. I have other older plants and these plants are great along with the service we recieved from the first phone call to picking our own plants from hundreds that were avaialable. I have so many people who want plants this fall that we plan on loading two trucks. make sure you listen to the planing instructions and then have plenty of recipes ready to go. DK

Well, maybe they are different varieties. But they look sooo much like each other right now. These plants are said to be only 5-6 years old, and perhaps their youth combined with the shock of being planted forced them into an early fruiting cycle or something, as they are all three too early. Like I said, when I see the leaf colors, I will have a better idea. Reka, Chandler, and Aurora should have red/burgundy, wine/orange, and deepred/wine leaves, respectively. Once I know for sure, I will update my rating to positive or negative.
On July 11th, 2011, Subversive changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:
For at least the time being, I am going to upgrade to positive, as although the plants all started fruiting at the same time, it does seem as if they are establishing different personalities now. I'll update again in the fall once I see the leaves. For now, I'm just going to enjoy the fresh blueberries.

I called in late june asking if it is too late to order blueberries. The person that answered said "no we ship blueberry plants all summer long". I order blueberry plants and 2 weeks later had a call on my answering machine that said they will not ship plants until it is below 85degrees. I called up a week later and left a message. No return I called 4 days later and the person who answered was very rude and told me they decide when to send plants and no one else. I asked if Icould get my money back and he said no, we don't give money back!. Maybe in October when I get my berry plants I'll feel better about this but not now!!

I am happy to report that I have beautiful blueberries growing on the blueberry bushes that I planted early last month. The berries are well formed and abundant for being transplanted just this spring. I did not lose a single plant after planting. Although I received them during an unexpected blizzard and freeze, I placed them in buckets of wet peat moss until I could plant them. Approximately two weeks passed before I could plant (due to two feet of snow fall). I would have to say the plants are very hardy! Customer service may not be the very best, but the plants are. I am ordering more for the fall.

I decided I wanted to pick up my plants in person. I was driving to the farm on a friday afternoon and because of traffic I was an hour late. I know I was the last visitor of the day and was worried they might leave. Anthony was great. I was in constant contact with Anthony who told me no problem he would wait for me. When I arrived I called and he came right down and patiently walked me through all the choices. I asked a million questions and he was happy to answer. Despite the late hour he stayed and talked about the farm.

When dealing with the Dimeo's, I would be very careful. We ordered 100 blueberry bushes and twenty raspberry plants. We sent the check in full and received sad little twigs with very little root systems, wrapped in peat stuck in baggies, and never got the raspberry bushes. The plants were less than satisfactory and When we called the farm to complain we were told that we only paid for the blueberry bushes and that the raspberries were never figured in! Worst of all are shipping and handling costs were around 500.00 dollars. They were delivered by are regular mail carrier in two boxes that were about 3x bigger than a shoe box, with the shipping posted directly on the box which was around 38.00 dollars each. By handling they probably meant handling the money, laughing and sticking it in their pocket. Really do the math a couple handfuls of medium five dollars, plastic baggies ten dollars getting ripped off by Dimeo Blueberry farms PRICELESS!!! Oh and we also went through the same belittlement on the phone and talked to like little kids who were being punished. I am not a competitor but just another unsatisfied customer. Also think about this why would a successful business have a lawyer on speed dial and threaten customers with sueing them if they made any noise about being unsatisfied hmmm? Probably because the complaints are real and justifiable. Oh yeah and when we called back and wanted to ask specific instructions on caring for our tender plants we were asked, did you get the care instructions? We replied yes but(then cut off do you know how to read?) You got to be kidding me what ever happened to good old customer service?

As a very beginner gardener, I decided I wanted to plant blueberries. After researching for a company to buy blueberry plants from (and all about how to grow blueberries), I found Dimeo. I came here and read all of the negative comments about shipping and unfriendly customer service, but I wanted to form an opinion for myself. I scheduled an appointment to come and visit the farm to talk with them in person about growing blueberries. After my 2 hour trek from PA, I arrived at the farm a little early, and Anthony yelled to me from a window that he would be right down. About 10 minutes later, he yelled down to me again to "go find one of my guys." I looked around the farm and finally found Juan. I started to ask Juan all the questions I had about growing blueberries and the types of blueberries he would recommend. Juan told me to wait for Anthony. Finally Anthony came down and was very rude to me, ridiculing me for bringing "a competitor's chart." (I brought it so I could understand what they were talking about, but I never got to explain that because he went on to ridicule me some more about how I was like every other customer, wanting the same thing... ) He was very rude to me and did not want to spend time explaining anything to me. He told me that he would pick out some plants for me. He did help me choose 2 early, 2 mid season, and 1 late and showed me how beautiful the berries were. (They really are.) But he did not want to explain the varieties I had picked out. He did not want to answer any of my questions, saying that I wanted what everyone else wanted. (I really wanted to know how to grow them, how to protect them from the winter, how to prune it so it makes a hedge, what color the leaves will be in the fall, what color the flowers will be in the spring, which ones would be best suitable for the harsh winter, etc.) He did not have time to spend the time with me I had thought, especially after reading the description on here. He briefly explained how to plant them. (He was nice about that part.) However, I am a brand new gardener and have no idea what I am doing. I planted my blueberries in the garden today, and I am praying that they grow. I think that this company is good for people who know what they are doing, but how busy he must be, Anthony does not have time for novices like me. It is not like the family farm businesses I know, where you get a warm, welcoming, and caring feeling. I drove 2 hours to pick up these plants so I did buy 9 plants to make my time worthwhile, but I think if I would have to do it over again, I would buy from someone that could spend the time with me to explain things in detail to me. I was very excited about growing blueberry bushes, but the whole buying process was really disappointing, and who knows whether the plants themselves will stay as pretty as I bought them. If these plants actually make it, I want to go buy more because their plants are that gorgeous (and organic) but I am afraid to go back because of how Anthony treated me. Nobody should feel that way about a business. I just want others to be warned that this family owned business is very busy and does not want to deal with people who don't know anything about growing blueberries. But, if you know how to get their plants to grow, doing business with them would be worth it because their plants are so awesome!

Just an update on the blueberry bushes I bought - they are absolutely awesome - they have taken root and growing extremely well. Lots and lots of flowers.

After reading many many reviews, about countless blueberry mail order web sites, I decided to give DiMeo a shot. DiMeo had the most positive reviews and the negative ones were about customer service, for the most part, and not about the blueberry plants. Most of the other mail order companies’ negative reviews were about the product. After much research from various NJ state web sites, as well as many gardening websites, I was able to make the decision that blueberry plants would work in my area. I knew how much space I had and, based on the research I had done, knew how many plants I could plant. I also knew what kind of soil was preferred and what I would have to do to make soil close to the recommendations. So THEN I decided to call DiMeo Farms. The guy (Mr. DiMeo) answered the phone, I told him I was looking to come down to look at the farm and pick up some blueberry bushes. I was sure that after I told him how many I wanted that the tone of the conversation would change for the worse, but it didn’t. I told him I was looking for the minimum order (5) and he said no problem. We set a time for later that week. I arrived at DiMeo farms and Mr. DiMeo was in the field with a worker, he waived us over to the parking spot. He was very nice to my wife and myself and answered all questions we had, as this was our first planting we had ever done. In the time we were with Mr. DiMeo he must have had 5-6 phone calls from the web site, WHILE he was with us. Mr. DiMeo himself answers the phone as much as possible and tries to answers as many questions as he can while at the same time take care of the customer that is in front of him. That’s hard to do no matter who you are. I think this is where most of the “customer service” issues come from. But after being there and seeing what goes on from the other end of the phone, I give DiMeo credit for trying. The DiMeo family takes pride in their farm, and family, as is obvious by the farm itself. The place is very kid friendly (were planning a trip there with our 3 kids later this year). Old tractors that are restored for the kids to play on and a picking patch for kids with honey sticks just for them. What DiMeo farms is not is a Wal-Mart where the customer is always right no matter what. I really appreciate the fact that I got straight to the point answers, and a great product. I’ll take that over great customer service from a person that has very limited experience but a nice way about them any day. The DiMeo’s are farmers, not sales reps. Could he have been nicer sounding over the phone with longer more politically correct answers? Yes, but, Remember, this is New Jersey you are calling (no offence! Lol). I am from Mississippi and needless to say that people in NY, NJ are different, but that does not make them bad people, just different personality wise. I would highly recommend DiMeo farms to anyone. They genuinely care about their business and their first priority is the plants. We ended up getting 5 six year old blueberry bushes, 3 raspberry, 3 blackberry, 3 gooseberry even though we only came for 5 three year old blueberry plants. The place is great. I also find it very amusing that some of the Dave’s garden moderators think that because a review is positive and personal that something must be “shady”. I am a real customer, feel free to contact me and I’ll show you my new garden.

Unfortunately I did not read the above reviews before purchasing from Dimeo Farms. I spoke with an individual at Dimeo Farms about how I was wanting to plant a Blueberry hedgerow in my back yard. I didn't really know how many plants I would need, but he told me that I should figure the spacing at 2' between plants, so I came up with 20 plants for my hedgerow. I asked him what types would be best for my area and asked about cross-pollination. He said they'd give me different varieties that are suited for my area.

About 2 weeks ago, I started searching the internet for ORGANIC blueberry bushes. Organic is very important to me so that part is vital. I found numerous sites but was attracted to Dimeo Blueberry Farms because of the extensive information about their plants with videos, etc. I emailed them and told them where I lived and that I had no clue on what type to buy. I received a phone call that very day which surprised me. They were very helpful. Gave me a price for the plants I wanted. I sent a check the next day and once they received the check, I got another call, telling me they had received the check and that the plants would be shipped out the following Wed. I received them this past Friday. In the rain, on Sat., I planted them after following their enclosed instructions, including taking a soil sample down to one of my local nursaries to test for the Ph level.

They were patient with my many questions and returned my emails and call in a very timely manner.

This farm is simply THE BEST. I just mail ordered 5 thornless raspberry plants. They just arrived and we were so impressed once again. They are multi-branched, have nice thick established cane, a huge hair ball of healthy well covered and protected roots and the farm also put detailed planting instructions and farmer tips in with our plants. DiMeo continues to go way beyond and above any expectations.
We will definitely be ordering from you all again. Great friendly customer service and well worth the price we paid. We once again HIGHLY RECOMMEND this operation. A+++

Like required on their website, I emailed within the three days of reciept with my concern. Multiple emails were not returned. The plants burned despite constant attention, but i waited till now to see if the root structure saved them. 20 plants, 4 survived. When I called to explain, the rude man read off the website about no guarantee for live plants, blah, blah, blah. We run an organic farm and have never had a plant supplier not replace plants, no questions asked. We are not rookies at planting. We knew they were to early and this company won't honor that mistake on their part. Strongly do not recommend the bad practices of this company.

My order was a small one only 6 plants and complicated because I order early January, for delivery in April and the weather in early April still too cold and snowy to plant. There was no problem with pushing back my delivery date. I would note to do ship U.S. Mail so keep that in mind when placing your order or ask to have your order shipped UPS or FedX.

Let me start by saying that I had some serious reservations about ordering from this company after I read these reviews. To my delight--I received my blueberry plants (still don't know what kind they are--they won't tell you) and I followed instructions-planted immediately. They are doing really great so far--flowers on all of them with blueberries to follow! I am an avid gardner so I was confident I could do this correctly. I will say that the man who answered the phone was rude and lacked any selling skills--and I think he will find as years go by that he has to change the way he conducts himself and his business. He also needs to get on the offense in regards to the internet--or his business will suffer-the internet is here to stay. We all know that any company can have issues that present themselves--it's the way that they are corrected and resolved that wins consumer loyalty. We are all human and we don't expect every single transaction to go perfectly. I think we can all agree to that. SO...I make my bid a positive experience, and I am really enjoying those plants!

Since that post I have met with a dead end on trying to find out the name of the plants I received. Remember, unlike all the other companies I've worked with, they were not identified with a band or in anyother way. Emails have not been answered either.
I may have been lucky with the quality of the plants but I think the poor service and atitude is a constant. The undeniable quality of the plants (though I still wish they weren't bareroot) means I can't give them a negative rating, but the attitude means I can't be positive either.

As you can see there's a history to this post. The plants that arrived in a late Sept. (early oct.?) heat wave didn't make it. I wrote to DeMeo and their reply was:
"sorry, send us the physical address and we'll gladly mail you replacements."
That's pretty darn good when you consider that I bear at least partial blame because , even though they were shipped in late Autumn, the plants were subject to a brutal heat wave right after they were planted. I set up Shade and watered, but it was too little too late and simpy wasn't enough.
Rest assured , when I put in the two planned U PIC'em's (one in Walton,NY and one in spencer Mass.) DeMeo wlll get the bulk of the business...

I ordered 10 3 year old blueberry plants over the phone. The plants came 5 days later in great shape,ready to plant. They were weeks ahead of my own plantings. The plant price was reasonable. I thought the shipping and handling was pricey since less than $10 of the price was postage, but once I saw the care that was given to the roots balls, I could understand that degree of care takes time and a lot of plastic bags. When I expand my field again I would order from them. I would recommend them highly. I would like to see more ability to order online than just phone. I was also impressed that the plants were raised organically. My farm is committed to organic methods.

I told him what I was looking for and what what kind of operation I had and he invited me up to see their operation. I flew to New Jersey to purchase 200 three year old Blueberry Bushes, I booked a round trip ticket from Tn to Pa and drove from the airport to their farm to learn about his operation and to the purchase bushes. I was planning on driving back the next week to pick them up BUT when I got there I was so blown away with the operation that I ended up purchasing 1000 bushes and canceling my flight back to rent a U-Haul and drive them back. Anthony was very helpful, he drove us around their farm and took almost all day showing me what they did and why they did it that way. He even took me to the U-Haul business to rent the truck and waited until I got it squared away. Since we only brought a check for 200 bushes he even took us by his bank to help speed up the process so we could get back home as soon as possible. Since I have been home I have already ordered 500 smaller bushes for resale at our business as well as pre ordered 1000 more 3 year old bushes for the fall. The 500 bushes were shipped the day after they were ordered which was awsome and if our wonderful government run postal service would not have been so slow, I could have had them within a few days, but hey it's the government, what else would you expect! Anthony was nothing but professional and helpful throughout the whole process. I will not be doing business with anyone else but him. I have found that the Blueberry business is full of people who have no clue as to what they are talking about but HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HE IS DOING! I can not say enough positive things about him and his operation, look forward to doing more business in the future.
