I have ordered for years - no problems, This time I ordered 2 thornless blackberries and fertilizer - they just arrived - best packaging ever - roots have straw inside plastic bag - labeled very well - one even has green leaves on it. Now soaking for 2 hrs - lovely plants. Thanks.

So far now have received all of my order except pepper plants, not scheduled to ship until next month. Everything in decent (not fabulous, but I didn't pay for fabulous) condition as far as I can tell. The Lemon tree had been awkwardly pruned to fit in the packaging and is a little sparse on leaves; hopefully it will do well after re-potting.

Received an e-mail today that my replacement will arrive 2/6/15. So I will stay with positive for now....Last year everything I got from Henry\'s was great. I had ordered peas and all of Henry\'s sprouted and I got a good crop the other company barely sprouted. Too be fair we had a cold spring, I planted early and the other company\'s seeds weren\'t treated and that I\'m certain made a difference.

2/2/2015 I received my replacement seeds today. Looks like a tablespoon worth or better ....So I'm happy, guess it was a fluke like I thought. Customer service said it would be 2/6 in the e-mail so 4 days early is good.

After getting a bum deal from summerstone (aka bummerstone), I was a bit gun shy to order online again. I took a chance with Henry Fields--their prices were not rediculously low so I figured they actually had sellable stock. I ordered a Pristine apple (standard) and a Stella Cherry (standard) and received both within 10 days of ordering.

I recently purchased 3 Trillium plants. There was much confusion regarding my payment resulting in my being charged twice for the products. I called HF and was told, more or less, to prove I had been charged twice. I then called my bank and they promptly removed the extra charge.

I ordered an apple tree and a hazelnut. They were shipped in the same package. The apple tree arrived in excellent condition and was the size advertised. They hazelnut arrived with the shredded paper surrounding the roots totally dry, probably due to the time it took to ship from one greenhouse to the other so both would be shipped together. I e-mailed customer service and got a response within 24 hours. They apologized and said a replacement would be shipped within 10 days. I received a healthy plant to replace the dry one. I am very pleased with their customer service.

I have received great plants and excellent customer service from Henry Fields. If you don't know how to plant just call and they will research and tell you. I had only one item (rhubarb) that was questionable and I planted it. When more than enough time had gone by I contacted them by phone and yes was answered by someone that was just a little hard to understand but was given the option of receiving a new plant when they were available or a refund. I chose the refund since I wanted to get the rhubarb in the ground. I don't think you can have better service than that. I give them an A.

I ordered 2 of the grab bags this year (2011) and was a bit disappointed that a lot of the plants were zone 9-10 as I'm in zone 5. The plants were healthy and I planted the few that were suitable for my zone outdoors and the rest I will try to use as house plants but really would have preferred that they had been organized by zones before packing. But I guess if it's a grab bag there's no sorting out by zone. Overall it was a good value but I wish there were more plants I could have used for the garden.

Have ordered several times this year. All orders arrived in a timely fashion and all items were as expected. The most fun was the $200.00 grab bag for $19.99. What a nice selection of plants. All were in good shape for an end of season sale. Actually, they were much better than I expected. All are doing very well.

Some things are worth waiting for!!! I just received an absolutely BEAUTIFUL jumbo Northland blueberry. The box arrived in perfect condition. The woody part of the plant is over 27 inches tall. Eight branches loaded with light-green new leaf buds, and, a LARGE rootball all give promise to delicious berries in the future! Thank you Henry Fields, customer # 30089366.

WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! -quadruple wow. Patience IS a virtue. The carmine cherry bushes that I received today are BEYOND amazing.! The 36 and 40-inch plants (not including the 4-5 inches of new growth) are loaded with GREEN leaves. The 6-inch rootballs were MOIST, covered with sphagnum moss and wrapped. Packaging was over-the-top. The plants were cushioned and had a stabilizer rods in the sealed box, AND, that sealed box was in another sealed box. I wanted these plants very much when I ordered them in early March, requesting a May delivery--I am beyond impressed. Thank you so very much, D. Stach

I ordered a grapevine and an apple tree using an internet coupon. Without the coupon I would have thought them a bit overpriced, but with the coupon they were an excellent deal. They shipped separately and were both well-packed (the apple tree may have been overpacked, actually - the box was huge!). The grape arrived first and began pushing buds almost as soon as I planted it in a container. The apple is a grafted whip and the graft is solid. The rootstock is 1/2-3/4" diameter and the scion is 1/4-1/2". I can't remember precisely how tall it was as I cut it back to about 30". I have it in a container and it is leafing out beautifully. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase from Henry Field's.

I changed my rating because a customer representative contacted me and responded that they would followup and use the incident in customer training for employees. I also received in the mail a postcard with a coupon which I greatly appreciated. There were some items that I would like to try, but to be honest I had not purchased plants from here because of the fear of being disappointed. I did receive the order of redworms for vermicomposting that I ordered and they appear to be healthy. I believe by the rapid response I received that the company is really trying to right a wrong impression and I appreciate the effort by the company to take care of my complaints. I will use the coupon and try another order.

I should have updated this ages ago but I've been so busy with my garden it totally slipped my mind! Henry Fields were very prompt in dealing with my quibble over the poor sweet potato plants, and just a couple of weeks later I received a new shipment from them which were much better. And in the meantime, the "poorly" ones I had already growing suddenly took off well, and are thriving.
I've changed my neutral to a positive not only because of their fast, no-quibble response to me, but also for the fact that other seeds I had ordered from Henry Fields are doing AWESOMELY well! My Yukon Gold potatoes are now taller than ME, and have developed seed pods! I have a feeling I should remove them and let the strength go to the potatoes underground, but it's so unusual to have spuds actually grow seed pods that I'm leaving them alone for now to see what happens.
The beetroot and mixed blend lettuce have been wonderful, and in general I'm more than happy with my purchases from Henry Fields. It was only the sweet potatoes that I felt let them down originally, and that has been resolved above my expectations.
I will happily be ordering seeds and seed potatoes and sweet potatoes again next year from them. :)

Both the raspberries have leafed out, which is Way better then the sticks I got from another co that is on the "top 30" list.
Don't know about the aspargus yet, it just arrived. But for the prices & selection I Highly recommend this co.

I've purchased from Henry Field's, Spring Hill, Breck's, Michigan Bulb and Gurney's several times. Sometimes the plants do not look good when they arrive, or for some unkown reasons plants just don't grow. When that happen, I just have to drop them an email asking for a replacement. No question asked. It's that easy. Last time I got three Hybrid Lily Tree instead of three Japanese Iris I ordered. Don't worry, I got to keep those three Hybrid Lily Tree for free and they sent out the right order to me right away.

I have never ordered from Henry Field’s Seed and Nursery before, but they were one of only a few on line nurseries that had a verity of black berry I was looking for. I found that they had the Lock Ness Blackberry and I wanted that type. I ordered 2 plants from them. They were a little pricy but I figured I would try them out. They are affiliated with Gurney’s and I have bought from them before. I like their guarantee. I ordered the plants in January and asked that they be send at the appropriate planting time for my area. I received an email notifying me that they were shipped and when to expect them. The arrived at the appropriate at time and were packaged very well, but one of the plants had been waterlogged and the roots were rotting and the leaves were brown and slimy. I called them immediately and told them about it. They offered to replace it at that time, but I told them I would try and revive it. After 2 weeks it was rally dead so I called them back. I spoke to someone from the United States who was very professional, courteous and responsive to me concerns. She stated that they would replace it immediately and I would receive my plant within a week. I thanked her and ended the call. Within an hour of that call I have a email confirmation of my replacement and the approximate date that I could expect the delivery. I know that Henry Field’s Seed and Nursery are a little more expensive them some on line nurseries, but I really appreciate the no hassle life time guarantee that they offer. It is worth it to me to know that if something ever goes wrong they will give me credit, replace or refund my purchase. When I pay the extra it is for the peace of mind.

I ordered 3 orange phlox bare root form them they shipped as stated in my invoice and plants arrived on time and in good condition with visible live growth.

Last year I ordered seeds and 3 year old asparagus crowns from Henry Field's, even though I lost 5 of my gus crowns the rest did great and produced gus a few months after I planted them. I was not able to call the company about the 5 crowns that did not come up due to spinal surgery and being laid up for 8 months. This year I just ordered seeds from HF and received them quickly. I plan on ordering 200 sweet potato slips in the next few weeks from HF and have always been happy with their products.
