This company has EXCELLENT customer service! 9 days ago, I received 5 Amelanchier stoloniferas and the peat was dry - a packing error. I planted them immediately and 2 seem to have a couple of swelling buds, but I'm not sure. I called because I knew their stock was low and Steve replaced all five - no questions asked! I said if the two woke up, I would send money for the replaced ones and I will. Great place!

I recently placed my first order with Prairie Moon, and I'm very pleased with their service and selection. Their catalog is tremendous, as well! I will definitely be placing future orders with Prairie Moon.

The best place to get American native plants that I know of. Their staff is knowledgeable and very helpful and will answer your questions, plants are packed neatly and come with metal plant tags (one per species), and their catalog is beautiful, loaded with information. I will definitely order from them again.

I have turned into a regular customer with Prairie Moon Nursery. This year I had 4 separate orders--2 for seed and 2 for plants. I can't say enough good things about them--good variety, good quality, good prices and good service! Just an overall great place to order.

I ordered a mix of Central Illinois prairie grass seeds from them last year and was very pleased. Excellent packaging and the seeds really took off last year and this year as well. Couldn't be happier with the results!

I ordered plants from their spring sale. The iris were all great, definitely worth the price. The roots I ordered looked good too. There was one perennial that was a bit dinky in the root dept., but is alive and for the cheap price, I'm not going to worry about it.

I placed an order for several bareroot praire plants. My order arrived when I requested and was well packaged. I was very pleased with the size and condition with one exception. This plant was very small with almost no root system. I emailed the company and received a response the next day. They apologized and are shipping me a replacement immediately.

I ordered about a dozen bare root plants. The shipping was a bit slower than I expected, but the order arrived in great condition. I received a generous amount of extras for two of the species, which was a nice surprise. I definitely recommend them and plan on ordering more bare roots in the spring.

I ordered a variety of bareroot plants from Prairie Moon Nursery. I was very happy with the packaging and quality of the plants I received. The planting instructions they sent along with the plants were very detailed and I greatly appreciated the information. I will definitely order from them again.

They responded on September 4 with an apology. The plants arrived soon after and look to be in great shape. Accordingly, I'm changing my rating to positive.

They have an excellent and varied selection of native seeds and plants. Many I couldn't find anywhere else. They have super fast service. My seeds came in within a few days of ordering. The seeds are of great quality as mine had sprouted very quickly. I will definitely buy from them again.

I've placed several orders with Prairie Moon, and they are consistently one of the best online web stores & the best online garden companies I've done business with. They are fast, have great communications, and their plants and seed have been top notch and well-shipped. They have minimum shipping charges, so don't order just a $2 packet of seeds - but they are in line with the other native plant nurseries I've ordered from (a bit lower than some), and they ship so your package doesn't spend too much time in transit .

I ordered from Prairie Moon twice this year, first for seeds, and then for plants when they had a sale. The seed packets were generous, and the seeds of high quality. The plant order arrived yesterday, and despite it being late in the season, the roots were in excellent shape, with growth present on all varieties. They were carefully packed in peat moss in plastic bags, the moss was not too wet so that they would rot, nor so dry that they would dessicate. Size of roots in many cases exceeded my expectations. They are also good at keeping one informed about when the order will ship. They also have a huge selection of native plants, many of which are not available elsewhere, and some of which are quite rare/endangered. A great company filling a pretty much unique niche.

I ordered some bareroot plants from Prairie Moon this spring and was very pleased with the large, healthy looking plants I received. Everything was nicely packgaged. A very good value for the money!

I have ordered from Prairie Moon for the past 4 years and have never had a bad experience. The germination rate of the seeds (which is what I predominantly purchase) is excellent!

Great selection, fast shipping and great customer service. There was a slight mix-up on my order: Eupatorium perfoliatum was sent instead of Eupatorium purpureum. An understandable mistake to be sure. I sent an email and the matter was resolved immediately. Even though this is a busy time of year I still got a nice handwritten note explaining the mix-up- a rare touch these days. These are good folks and I look forward to doing business with them again. Highly recommended.

I received an email from Prairie Moon, the seeds that were out of stock are not available and ready to order. This is a special service they provide and it is so helpful. They truly aim to please.

This company has great plants and great customer service. I ordered several plants from Prarie Moon last year. They all arrived dormant and bare root. After I planted them, almost all came up. A simple email to Prairie Moon quickly resolved the situation. They offered to replace the plants - no questions asked, no hesitation.

Seed packets are generous, seeds have high germination rates. I have succesfully grown plants from their seed that I have never had luck with before. Their plants are awesome, big and robust and very nicely priced! Their catalog is a great source of germination and cultivation information and is on my reference shelf. I would highly recommend this nursery, they rate 5 stars in my book.

excellent plants and seed (near 100% germination rate!), customer service is outstanding. Their website and catalogue are excellent primers on starting your prairie. I really can't say enough good about this company.

Outstanding company! My wife and I have literally invested thousands of dollars worth in seeds and plants from Prairie Moon over the past couple of years for reestablishing a native prairie. The diversity in offerings (of both seeds and bare-root plants) is unmatched! We appreciate their efforts to fill our orders with ecootypes native to our region. We have found them prompt and very willing to answer our questions. We will continue to use them for our native plant purchases and recommend them to other restorationists!

I have done business with Prairie Moon for the past few years. They are my first stop when I'm looking for a native plant, I only shop elsewhere if they don't have what I'm looking for. I usually order seeds, but when I have ordered plants, I am very impressed by the size and health of what I've received. They really are fantastic!

I placed an order for seed this year, the first time I have dealt with them. The seed came very quickly, and I have had germination on several species already. I ordered online, then rec'd a catalog last week. Their catalog is a wonderful source of information and will be worth keeping for reference. I didn't order plants, but the prices are more than reasonable. I have a perennial business, and the prairie moon prices are comparable to what many places would charge for wholesale.

I have ordered from Prairie Moon the past three years and have nothing but great things to say about them. I have ordered both plants and seeds, and have been extremely happy with everything I have ordered. The plants were all healthy and grew well, some flowering the first season in the ground. I had a very high germination rate with the seeds ordered and numbers are what is stated. Detailed instructions come with each order and I was kept well informed of the status of my orders, receiving several emails throughout the process. A+ company!

This is the 3rd order I have placed with this company, and just like the others, my order is just perfect.. Everything comes bareroot, but the sizes they ship are just outstanding. They send wonderful instructions on how to plant the bareroots. I will continue to order from them, their customer service is A1 as is their plants..
