No more catalog! It's a bit of a bummer. It was nice to look through it every spring.

I received a card in the mail for a going out of business sale. After this fall, I guess that's it for Ambergate gardens. Apparently the owners retired.

Ordered two martagon lillies for fall of 2011. Ambergate emailed letting me know the other varieties available but not listed on their website. As a result I ended up changing my order to Gaybird and Lois Hole. Both lilies bloomed the following year with two blooming stalks on the Gaybird. This year (2013) both lilies are much stronger and the Lois Hole has another stem (non blooming). Very good company with personable service and will not hesitate to order from them in the future.

I had a wonderful ordering experience with this nursery. Barerooted plants are extremely large and healthy, the prices and shipping are inexpensive and Mike was accommodating of special order requests and quite easy to reach via e-mail. I will definitely be a repeat customer in the future.

I should also note that while Ambergate's catalogue may not have the most extensive selection compared to certain other mail order nurseries, all plants are carefully selected tried-and-true favorites that are proven cold hardy and vigorous. That said, there is a surprising number of rarities and uncommon selections tucked into their catalogue.

Large healthy plants, beautifully packaged, and great service. I ordered about six different species of perennials. Will definately order again.

I received my second order from Ambergate Gardens last week. I live in a very cold part of western Montana. The bareroot plants were packaged well and the root systems on them are very large and healthy. I will definitely be ordering from Ambergate Gardens again. I have ordered from a number of other mail order companies but find the size and quality of Ambergate Garden's perennials hard to beat. Thank you!

I have placed two orders with Ambergate Gardens and was very satisfied both times. Plants were a good size and healthy. I liked how I could choose the shipping date that I knew would work for me.

Lots of plant material for the money. Great selection and stock is well cared for, Mike & Jean give good personal service and take time to answer questions.

Not the widest selection, but some unusual material, and extremely good information. I received one bad plant last spring, which was cheerfully exchanged. Great service.
