I have been ordering from Santa Rosa Gardens for 2 seasons thus far. I have always been pleased with the material they send, and with the packing, etc. I cannot always plant as soon as I receive material so sometimes I have to place seedlings in a sheltered spot (I use a lg. plastic windowbox)

I can say nothing but good things about Santa Rosa Gardens. I've ordered butterfly bush, ornamental grasses, black eyed susans, and lavenders from SRG. The plants are outstanding and arrive very healthy looking. The packaging is phenomenal, easily the best packaging I've ever seen from a online nursery. Each plant is individually placed a net sock, to keep the soil from spilling out all over then box, and then wrapped in paper. The fall clearance prices are an absolute steal! At $5 flat rate 2 day shipping... just can't be beat.

Great company. Great communication. Great variety of plants. Good packing. Plants arrived in perfect condition. Already planted and doing well so far. I have become a life long customer.

I probably would have hesitated to order from Santa Rosa Gardens because I am on the upper East Coast, figuring transit was too far for plants to go by Ground transit, had it not been for a fellow-DG'er who highly recommended them and they were having a fall sale. I ordered 15 plants at really reasonable prices and saw on their website they plainly display what size their plants are (and how they are packed).

I ordered several dozen perennials at Fall sale prices from Santa Rosa Gardens. Email communication on the status of my order was excellent and they quickly refunded me for an item that was not longer in stock...after giving me the option of waiting until Spring when more would be available. My order arrived quickly and the plants were in great condition...not only because they clearly had been well taken care of before shipping but because each plant had a mesh stocking and wrapping of paper that protected it in transit. This was my first transaction with their company and I was very impressed. Thank You!

I placed a smaller fall order with Santa Rosa Gardens, and the plants I received were in great shape. The Sedum, Autumn Joy, is even going to bloom! I especially like the fact that when you get ready to order, the website shows you how many of each plant are available. Too, this time I said to ship ASAP, and they emailed me with the ship date, so I could mark my calendar. And with each shipment, the plants arrived a day or two sooner than expected.

Its been a while since I ordered from SRG but I placed 3 separate orders this fall for more varieties of grasses. I love this company, when you see the plants you just want to order more, so I did, two more times. The plants were healthy, large and arrived in great shape. I'm working on a small prairie and their great selection of affordable native grasses is helping make this possible as they naturalize in my landscape. Along with the fall sale plants, I pre-ordered 'Red October' Big Bluestem, seems SRG is the only online place who is selling it, I can't wait to see it color up next fall. I can't say enough about their packing, the ease of ordering, clarity of your order status, the quality of plants and the fun it is to place the order and receive those wonderful big white boxes of healthy plants at such unbelievably reasonable prices.
What a great and reliable company!

I don't think I am exaggerating when I say that this company has got to be at least in the top five in the entire country! I have ordered several times from them now, the first time just a few months ago, and every time has been a wonderful experience. In fact, I am going to have to fuss at them for making me spend so much money! LOL They keep sending me these coupons, and I cannot resist! Seriously, everything is packed wonderfully, the plants look great and healthy, the prices are more than reasonable, and the shipping prices are more than fair. I just can't say enough great things about his company.

I placed an autumn order and received it last week. Every plant has a robust root system and all looked great except for one Gaillardia who did not travel as well as its companions. I emailed Jude on arrival and was immediately offered a replacement. I requested a few days, however, to watch this particular plant. I am happy to say that I emailed Jude this evening cancelling the replacement as the Gaillardia has fully rebounded and now looks as good everyone else (healthy roots = healthy plants). I have already placed another order due to ship on Monday. Great plants at great prices coupled with quick, responsive customer service make SRG a gem of a nursery!
On October 12th, 2012, Old_Gardener added the following:
I received the next order and, as before, every plant looks great! The plants that I received two weeks ago have all transitioned well in my garden, are rapidly putting on size, and many are sending up buds. Santa Rosa is fantastic!!
On November 2nd, 2012, Old_Gardener added the following:
I placed another order earlier this week that arrived today. Although it is late in the season and I purchased sale plants, each and every plant looks fantastic - truly an exceptional delivery. I cannot recommend Santa Rosa highly enough - I will definitely place more orders with them in the future. Also, the plants I received 3 weeks ago have not only settled in, but they have grown considerably (doubled in size or more) and at least half are blooming! Thanks, Santa Rosa, for offering such healthy, robust plants at great prices and thank you, Jude, for always keeping me up to date on the status of my order and getting back to me so quickly whenever I have had a question.
On March 9th, 2013, Old_Gardener added the following:
I placed an order for 24 plants on 2/1 for early spring/March shipping. The plants were shipped last Monday or Tuesday (I received a ship notice on both days - perhaps it is due to there being 2 boxes shipped?) and I received them on Thursday. UPS left my boxes in the middle of a shared driveway (not at my house), the smaller box was upside down, and the plants in the smaller box appeared to have suffered a difficult ride (1 was even out of its pot). Thankfully, SRG had wrapped and packed the plants well and all 21 plants arrived green and moist. I did email Jude just in case the upended plants go into shock and she emailed me back immediately - thank you, Jude, you are fantastic - but, as of last night, they were all resting comfortably in the greenhouse.
I was notified on Tuesday (after shipping) that 3 of the 24 plants were on backorder (hence, receiving 21) and I only wish they had notified me prior to shipping so that I could have substituted similar cultivars that are in stock for the ones that were not ready yet. Still, a very positive review and I have already placed another order to fill in another section of garden.
Santa Rosa Garden has great prices, fantastic customer service (Jude is the best), and packaging that survives the perils of shipping. All of the plants that I have received have, without fail, been well-rooted and healthy. Truly 10 stars! Oh, and many of the perennials that I purchased late last year from SRG are already huge - no sleep, creep and leap for them! Again, a fantastic nursery to do business with!!
On March 15th, 2013, Old_Gardener added the following:
I received another order today. As always, everything was well-packed and the plants look great!
On June 28th, 2013, Old_Gardener added the following:
I received another order mid-June and am expecting my final Spring/Summer order for this year today. As before, the previous order was absolutely lovely out of the box (I emailed with a question about one plant and received a response from Jude within an hour or so - no issue with the plant). Between this nursery and one other (each carry a very different selection of plants), I have been able to re-do much of the front yard and am halfway through the back - and at a very reasonable cost. Thanks, SRG, for the great quality and customer service! You are always the first place I look, now, when shopping for perennials. I\'ll be ordering more come autumn.
On August 14th, 2014, Old_Gardener added the following:
Over the past year, I have placed several more orders as their site and their plants are quite addictive. Although there have been a couple of very minor bumps in the road (a couple of Leptinellas did not ship well, some ants hopped in for a ride mid-way down the route, and some plants were not available to ship), Jude has been there every step of the way. In all fairness to SRG, I read that another, unrelated vendor had the same ant issue at the same time. It turned out that a package depot mid-route had an ant problem and the ants were moving their nests about - definitely not SRG's fault!. In terms of the bamboo shortage, I ordered all of the plants left in stock and I appreciate the fact that they notified me that a couple of the lot were not available. This allowed me time to make a substitution - thank you, Jude! In terms of the Leptinella, Jude offered to refund (which I declined as they were still showing some life) and she also gave me some helpful tips in regard to them. As of today, I could not be happier with the results - the Leptinella have rebounded and I learned some things along the way.
My last few orders with SRG have been rather large and extensive (multiple, multiple boxes - I feel guilty that I paid so little in shipping - and so little for the plants as I caught their end-of-spring sale) and Santa Rosa Gardens has done an exemplary job in filling them. Jude, you and SRG are the best! Thank you so much for all of the time that you have spent helping me and all the wonderful advice. I will definitely be ordering again!

Ordered some grasses Tuesday morning. SRG shipped that day, UPS Ground. Arrived Friday. All plants were shipped professionally, healthy, in a protective netting, and packaged properly. There's a reason why they're top5 here and with many other gardeners. Would order from again anytime.

What a delight! I was swayed by the flat shipping and sale prices, but didn't have very high expectations. What I received were reasonably sized plants well packaged. I will certainly purchase here again!

This company is ONE OF THE BEST online plant store that I have ever came across. The prices are fair, plant size is generous, and shipping and handling is what impressed me the most. I only paid $5 for shipping but I would have gladly paid $20 for the care my plants received. I will definitely buy from them again!

I placed my order with this company based on the reviews here and had a great experience. They were very responsive and easy to communicate with. One of my purchases was not going to be ready to ship until the fall and they contacted me promptly to let me know and to give me the option of an immediate refund if I didn't want to wait. They shipped fast, exactly when they said they would. The plants were good sized and are very healthy. I would definitely order from Santa Rosa again.

I just wanted to add that I moved to Grant Township,MI. The Zone here is 6 rather than 4 where I was living before.So I am ordering many new types of perennials now from SRG now that I am not as limited as I was in a Zone 4 area.And this is so exciting to receive many perennials that I have was unable to plant for many years.I lived in a Zone 6 area 15 years ago and missed so many of the perennials that I had back then.So with SRG, I am able to start again with prices within my budget!!

Thank you for finding Santa Rosa Gardens and for giving us a shot at becoming one of your 'go to' plant suppliers. We try hard to make every shipment the best it can be, but once in a (great) while, we do fall short. What you'll find from Santa Rosa Gardens, is that we will ALWAYS do whatever it takes to remedy the situation and help you put quality plants into your garden. If you don't succeed, we don't succeed. Thanks so much for your feedback!"

What a great and happy surprise. I had been 'burned' by less than stellar sites for gardens over the past several years and, honestly, expected nothing else after all this time. However, this company, Santa Rosa Gardens, is the BEST! I recently purchased 8 plants from them at their 'end of the season' sale. Normally, at the end of the season sale it would not be terribly surprising to receive some plants which did not live up to hopes and expectations. Not the case here! All of my plants (coneflowers) were healthy, well packed and received with explicit instructions for planting and future care. Although I am a long time gardener and did not need the instructions, I looked them over and any person new to gardening would be happy to receive such well written and explicit instructions. THANK YOU Santa Rosa Gardens. You will be receiving all of my future plant and garden supplies orders placed over the internet.

Doing business with Santa Rosa is one of the more pleasurable experiences I've had! They have an excellent website, their products are fairly priced, they promptly deliver top quality products and recently, when some of their items went on sale right after I made a purchase, they provided a credit towards future purchases. That's service!

I ordered several times since finding this site last fall. I only wish I had found it sooner! Their plants are much larger (and healthier-looking) than those I received from other companies. Customer service is friendly but professional. And their plants arrive in good order, having been packaged simply (no plastic wrap! Yay!) but well. In my area in north Georgia, shipping live things can get tricky due to crazy weather fluctuations, but I have not been disappointed by Santa Rosa.

Jude from Santa Rosa Gardens reached out to me to understand what my disappointment was with their plants and after I shared that info, she provided an explanation for the outcome and refunded 3 of the smallish plants as I indicated. Even if I did not get the exact plants I desired, they have made the mail order process of buying and feedback pleasant for me.
I thank them for caring. I appreciate good sellers such as Santa Rosa.

Second year ordering from Santa Rosa and all I can say is - what an outstanding experience from start to finish. Placed an order for 20 perennials and couldn't believe the large, healthy plants I received for the price. Some plants were already blooming with stalks over a foot tall and they survived shipping completely intact with not a leaf disturbed.
Love, love, LOVE Santa Rosa Gardens!

Since my last rating, I have received several more orders and all were in excellent condition, packaged well, the soil was moist and all plants were tagged. Excellent service as I add plants to existing orders within days of shipping and they always come thru. Will continue to purchase from this company for my all my gardens.
I also ordered from a competitor, who shall remain nameless at this time, and received sub standard Phlox Panaculata, yellowing Filipendula, panicum grass with dried out soil as well as soil all over inside the box, my free mystery plants were in better shape in my order than the ones I paid for.
I will start using SRG more and the competitor much less.

Well its September again and S.R.G fall sale is on-I purchased as many plants as I could afford (and have room for) and added some right before shipping and they came thru again. I am refurbishing the gardens at my daughters house and needed to purchase many items, so this sale is perfect for me. Their customer service is the best, friendly helpful and they let me know when certain plants are not available in enough time to order something else in their place. This year-even with the hurricane, 99% of their plants did not even get damaged because of strong root systems.Yes some plants arrive small, but in my experience these plants caught up to the others within a month with proper planting and feeding (I plant all new arrivals with Biotone starter). I never received a dead plant from them yet. I read the few negatives and some people really complain about everything-I guess you can't make 100% of the people happy all the time. Oh well, more plants for me!
On August 18th, 2012, plantgnome1 added the following:
Still one of my favorite companies for me and I order from several different companies every year. They make good on any plant that doesn't survive. Now shipping is a flat rate which is another plus. Still helping out my daughter with her gardens as the prior owners let everything go for about 4 years. This has turned into a monumental task and as I clear each space, I order from SRG as their prices are reasonable especially during their early sale this year. Yes lately, some of the plants are arriving quite small, but mostly they survive. You can't beat their ornamental grasses for price or health. Each online site I shop on have their specialties-this one really excels in the grasses. Will continue to give them my business.
On July 2nd, 2013, plantgnome1 added the following:
My rating will never change for this company-I have placed numerous Spring orders and all received in great shape and healthy. Some customer actually complained about Bargain Bench Hosta-they must be kidding-when your getting a $13.00 plant for 2.99-are you expecting a freshly dug and potted Hosta?? I have purchased numerous Hosta from the Bargain Bench and they are thriving-when you get a root bound plant just cut off the very bottom with garden shears, spread the roots with your hands and plant it. The ones I got this Spring are now huge. I have also had plants sent with wrong tags, have emailed Jude and received replacements free of charge with no questions asked. I have had a few not make it thru the winter, they were replaced free of charge. Shipping costs are the best in the market at this time-flat rate no matter how large your order is. Not like others who increase the shipping costs as your total goes up. As for Big Box store plants, some are diseased (most hosta are virused at the Big Box Stores) and they don't replace your plants.
I am happy with and will continue to fill up my gardens with SRG plants.
On May 26th, 2014, plantgnome1 added the following:
After this past horrible winter, I lost numerous plants and the ones I got from SRG have been replaced free of charge this Spring. This year their sale is not as it has been in the past. Bought a few plants but not the large orders I have placed in the past as the sale is limited to only some of the plants.

I'm very pleased with my shopping experience with Santa Rosa Gardens. They carefully waited to ship my order until after danger of frost had passed in my area. The plants were big, healthy and packed beautifully. They were obviously cared for with each one slipped into a protective net sleeve, as well as wrapped in a crush-proof layer of paper. There was absolutely no water stress as each plant arrived well hydrated and strong. They transplanted into my garden without a leaf out of place. Great job!

I ordered 10 grasses late in the season at an absolutely great price. They came very well packaged, on time, and very healthy. Perfect. I had been looking locally for these grasses and they are hard to come by. They seem to be doing well, despite very high winds (gusts to 40 mph) and a torrential downpour two nights after they were planted. I will be ordering from Santa Rosa Gardens again.

WOW! I am a big believer in mail order garden resources but know that you don't always get what you pay for. That said, Watchdog 30 companies are pretty reliable. I had never ordered from Santa Rosa Gardens before so only ordered some clearance items. The plants arrived today and I am really impressed. The plants are all healthy and a good-to-great size. The packaging was the best that I have ever seen. If these plants don't thrive, it will be my fault. I will definitely be back. Sometimes you get much more than you pay for.

My hibiscus has so many blooms,I can't believe I planted it this yr. and the baby joe is lovely and already 2.5ft. tall. Eveyone comments on how stunning my garden looks with all the healthy plant, and I tell them it's thanks to Santa Rosa Gardens. Thank you SRG.

I placed several orders with Santa Rosa this Spring and another one today. The plants arrived in outstanding condition and just took off growing. Jude at customer relations was very helpful in solving ordering and shipping questions. This is an excellent company with excellent plants and service and very fair prices! Oh and did I mention the grasses? They have the best.
