I just recently ordered from Greenwood, the price was great with a good selection of the plants I was looking for. The plants I ordered arrived promptly and were in good condition. The plants which were shipped as roots are now up and growing and look very healthy. My e-mails with questions were always answered promptly. My order for 20 plants arrived three short(as tangled roots, I see this as an easy thing to happen). I let Greenwood know about the shortage and told them that because of the great price it wasn't necessary to send additional plants, however, they insisted and again the plants arrived promptly. I will order from them again.

There are so many factors as to why plants fail and unfortunately it usually lies with the gardner not the supplier. The gardener must know the requirements of the plant and what type of environment the plant is being placed in. "Too much or too little" seems to be the key for most plants. What type soil, loam, clay, sand, compacted, loose, etc. Does it drain well? Is the soil acid, neutral, alkaline? Do the plants like wet feet or dry? Sun or shade? Is the site too windy, dessicating, etc.
A dozen questions to ask and answer. Plants will do their very best if given the right circumstances. A supplier would be foolish to send defective product and most would replace failing plants. It is just good business. Again, the gardener needs to furnish the plants with the best. That doesn't mean they won't get diseased or attacked by insects but again it is up to the gardener to help the plant.

I've ordered groundcover from Greenwood and they are spreading very well. The plants were healthy and were shipped on time. Their email replies were also prompt.

A hint for those buying seedlings. Some tree varieties do grow fast like river birches. However I can't comment on the quality of seedlings from Greenwood because I have never order tree seedlings from them.

In the future, perhaps gardeners should check the availability of seedlings from their State forester or arborist.
