My second time ordering from them and once again I am happy.
Packing - Plants came carefully wrapped with tissue paper around leaves and a long stick stuck into each pot to prevent breakage. I was surprised no heat-pack was included as it is winter now but plants are just fine.
Plants - Healthy, well established and looks about ready to pot-up as roots galore. Nice surprise that they included a free plant/plug, Jasminum multiflorum, that is covered in buds.
Communication - previous order and this order they have always been very responsive and accommodating to my shipping requests and questions.
Thank you Emerald Goddess!

I was not asked to write a review. I did it out of a grateful heart. I ordered 2 Mexican flame vine plants. Iím here on Oklahoma. Iím very familiar with this plant, so when I received it in the mail I knew what to expect.
I appreciate the TLC and careful attention to detail and thought when it came to shipping. I had some concerns regarding the time of year and shipping plants in heat.
I am thankful for this online option. Many thanks for your service. I will be sharing this option with other gardeners.

I ordered several really cool plants from them on eBay. Very impressed with the size of the plants and the packaging they arrived in. They even sent detail information about each plant ordered. Definitely recommended.

I too was looking for a source for Cat's Whiskers (Orthosiphon stamineus) when I found Emerald Goddess Gardens. I ordered some other plants as well. All arrived in great shape due to obvious care taken in packaging. If I remember correctly they sent a bonus free Gardenia plant too. This company is obviously made up of true plant lovers.
I am delighted to have discovered Emerald Goddess Gardens. It is evident in the health of the plants and the attention to detail in packing that they love what they do. Placed an order in Oct 2014 - the plants were in excellent condition, carefully packed and clearly identified. Individual care instructions as well as a lovely thank you gift were included. I was looking for Cat's Whiskers and was pleased to find not only white, but the lavender variety. In addition to many unusual and often hard to find plants, there is a selection of new offerings that change monthly. Will definitely be a regular customer.

We ordered many plants and trees from Emerald's and are still most happy. The quality of the delivery as well as the plants inside was outstanding. We will order from them again always when searching for something we would enjoy having.

Really great plants. Price and shipping could be cheaper, but I don't mind paying since their plants, regardless of size, always survive whatever neglect I've accidentally handed out. Bought a number of plants and continuing to buy more. They also include a small starter plant for free and I appreciate being introduced to new plants and trying them out.
Love plants, they do too. Highly recommend as long as you buy from them, not from re-sellers.
Wow some of the best looking plants I have received through the mail .They had hard to ..find old fashioned tall red pentas,My plants were so big for the price and all were healthy and some were in full bloom ..All my plants I ordered are doing great .!I would buy again in a heartbeat great place to get hummingbird and butterfly plants!!
Wonderful company. I searched for the Hawaiian Sunset Vine and was led to this company. When my first plants arrived they were not healthy and in fact root rotted, as they were sent right after I ordered which was winter, and much too cold to send tropical plants. When I notified the company of the timing and the condition of the plants they offered to replace them free of charge and then took the time to email me a few times to verify our weather conditions before sending the plants the second time. At the proper time, I got the most beautiful, healthy plants, one was even blooming! Since then the plants have grown by leaps and bounds are are so pretty! Good customer service means everything to me.
My order arrived promptly and well packed. I was impressed by a few things the plants were large size for the price I paid and none of the plants were trimmed to fit in the box. The box was the appropriate size for the plants so they did not have to be whittled down to mail. There were nice little touches like a bonus plant I wasn't expecting and the colorful wrapping around the pot with the name of the plant. Included in my order were data sheets on each plant and the nice thing about that, is they included strategies on how to overwinter in your zone. It is obvious this owner is passionate about plants and it shows. I have been looking for the Lady Banks Rose for awhile and I am glad my search led me to this company.

Great seller with great prices. Got a dwarf papyrus on ebay and the plant was healthy, expertly packed and shipped very fast. Received a bonus. Will not hesitate to buy from this seller again and highly recommend.
Wow! My first order was a dwarf papyrus at a great price, with *free shipping* -- and she included a lovely little jasmine as a totally unexpected bonus! Plants were well packed with moisture crystals so they arrived fresh and unstressed even in summer heat. She even wrapped the pot in bright tissue paper with a ribbon, so it was the prettiest order I've ever unpacked! (This would be a fun place to order from if sending a gift, I think.)
I would not hesitate to order from her again (and probably will). :-)
I have enjoyed everything I've ordered from this seller. Found a couple of things I couldn't find elsewhere and even got a delightful free plant with an order! If I remember correctly, this is also the seller that puts water-holding polymer crystals in with the rootball of plants to help assure that they don't dry out on their journey to your house.

I have ordered at least 3 roses from Emerald Goddess and have always been pleased. When I have sent an email, I have always gotten a prompt and kind reply and though I have had no problem with anything, I feel sure that I would be able to work things out. :)
Within 3 days of ordering online I received very healthy plants, free gift, and planting instructions. I was so pleased with my order I ordered a plant for my mother and she was just a pleased as I was. A++++ to this company.

WOW, This place is a real TREASURE. I discovered them looking for unusual vines on eBay.
I ordered 4 items from them and received them within 3 days (Fla to Ca) Outstanding service and shipping. The plants were big,fat and beautiful with excellent root systems.
Everything was first rate.
It's a mom and pop grower,and the selection is small...but well worth it. I discovered some new plants and am very very happy with my first order.
