I recently purchased several natives from this company and they were really great to deal with. Communication was fantastic and the plants arrived in excellent condition. I put my order in on a Thursday and they shipped on Monday. I made sure to order only things that were in stock and asked them to ship right away. I was really impressed. Definitely buy from this company!

My first order from this company was a great experience. The plants were large, healthy and reasonably priced. Shipping was fast and a confirmation was sent upon shipment. Communication was excellent.

I've ordered from Gardens of the Blue Ridge several times and visited once. It's a great source of native plants, including the hard-to-find Shortia galacifolia. The large, healthy Trillium cuneatum rhizomes I received from them last week are emerging beautifully in my garden. I'll definitely be buying from them again.h

Blue Ridge Natives is my #1 source for woodland wildflowers. Their service is as good as I've seen, and I've ordered plants from numerous nurseries. I've placed nearly a dozen orders over the years and have never had a complaint. If something is wrong with the order or if something dies after planting it, they promptly rectify the situation. Their plants, roots, tubers etc. are always packed well, labeled well, very healthy and ship right quick! The only reason I don't use them exclusively is because they don't supply every plant that I want at a give time, which is more than understandable.

I received an order of Epigaea repens, Lilium superbum and Xerophyllum asphodeloides. Plants arrived well packed and in great shape despite rough handling by UPS. I have ordered from them many times in the past and have always been satisfied.

Although this company is mostly known for its wildflowers, my order was entirely of trees and shrubs. I was 100% pleased with the plants I received. They were healthy, of good size, and grew nicely through their first season in the ground. The company kept me informed as to when things would be shipped, so I was ready to receive them. An excellent source for native trees and shrubs!

Ordered numerous bareroot plants from them this spring. Arrived when scheduled. Can I say...WOW!!! what large, healthy roots they sent. I did have one missing and one which was rotted in the peat. I notified them right away and they had them shipped to my door within the week at no cost. That is called customer service! All of these plants have survived and thrived for me (even after several were dug up by my rascally little squirrels). I will be ordering from them again!

Absolutely best quality native wildflowers I have ever received from a mail order nursery. The plants were big and healthy and extremely well packaged. Considering the quality of the plants, their prices are amazingly reasonable as well. Highly recommended.

Absolutely gorgeous, huge and healthy plants from them. Got 2 Baptisias and 2 ratibida pinatas and a Lily. Careful packing and prompt shipping. Not enough good things to say about this company. It is just a joy to read through their plant list, as they are true native plant lovers. Exceptional quality.

I am totally delighted with my recent order experience with GOTBR. I was concerned about ordering fragile wildflowers, Spring Beauty, Mayapple, Trout Lily, etc. since I had no idea how they would withstand shipping, but did not want to go out to the woods and disturb habitat. I needn't have worried! Not only did GOTBR communicate frequently and well, by email, but my plants arrived in wonderful condition! On their website they describe their plants as several years old, and bloom ready the first year. Even my tiny Spring Beauties have buds, and both Trout Lilies have flowers! They Mayapples are approx 5inches tall and came through with nary a bend. They are beginning to unfurl their leaves already. Packing was excellant. Shredded newspaper, carefully and tightly packed around the plants, which were then wrapped in newsprint, taped and tied at the top. BOTH pots and wrappers were marked with plant and planting info. I haven't opened the rootstock I ordered yet, but it too looks very well packed in dirt and moss.
I would give them a 5 star rating! In fact, I am returning to their web-site today to place another order. Their respect for customer and product is unequalled in my experience.

I ordered native rhododendron in gallon pots. I expected something much smaller. They were amazing in size and growth is coming in like gangbusters! Lovely blooms on them as I took them out of the packaging.

I am thrilled. I will definitely be a repeat customer. They upheld every aspect of the arrangement...shipping, customer service, excellent, excellent plant material!

I recently placed a large order with Gardens of the Blue Ridge. It arrived promptly and was packaged very well.
All the plants are in in good shape, and are good sizes for the prices. The largest plant I ordered is a lonicera sempervirens and even with the long branches, it didn't have any damage. I end up with more damage on plants buying them at the local nursery, loading them in the car and driving them home! I am very pleased and would definitley do business with them again.

I've order most everything not available locally from Robyn at Gardens of the Blue Ridge. Everything is aways larger than I expect and I have even divided them before planting. Everthing I have purchased has done very well. They are a good group of folks.

I received my order on March 8, 2001. They were bare root plants but they were of a good size with lots of roots and they were packaged very well. They were wrapped in some type of moss, placed in a plastic bag and tied with string. I was very pleased with my order.
