All our dealings with Debby have been excellent! What tops it all, is the way plants arrive, very professionally and carefully packed, and in top condition. Psychologically when we customers receive more casually packed plants from others, we are not inspired to take the extra care they warrant, and in this case, they are so well prepared, we take great pains to see every step to give the plants the best start possible. Lazy S'S Farms truly deserves rating as a top company in the Garden Watchdog, a company we trust. Thank you, Debby, for all.

The company sent me an email that they are refunding my order. Updating this review to neutral for now, as I wait for the check to arrive.

Just a word of caution. If you order from this company, do not accept "lightly rooted" plants. You will be sorry.
My experience with the company was not positive. Like others have commented on, if there is a problem, expect a strong armed response from them. They do not know how to be amiable in a message. I was treated like a criminal for protesting against the sickly plants received (lightly rooted)....how dare I! They told me, in so many words, that I was no longer to do business with them. Don't worry, I won't. Once burned, I never go back to be burned again.
To those that say "I can't sing enough praises for this company" or "this is the best place to buy plants from" I question.....are they family members and friends? I had a terrible experience. On a positive note, they did refund the entire order (mostly out of disgust, as they no longer want me as a customer).
If you are wealthy, don't mind sickly/small plants, and don't mind plants that you ordered to not ship, and if you enjoy a combative seller, this is the nursery for you.

I'm always surprised when a customer gives a Negative Review until they've heard from a company. No one here on this forum can solve this problem. I am the person who can help you and now, I alas, I feel a bit on the defensive as some might imagine. We guarantee in writing that our plants will arrive in good condition. If there's something you're not pleased with, including the entire order, we pay for return shipment and refund. It's that simple. As soon as I read your mail, that's what will happen.

I placed another order recently with Lazy. I was preparing myself that the plants might be really stressed since it is a lot warmer than when I ordered a few months ago. Much to my surprise, the plants were superbly cared for. They were very well watered, so much so that I didn\'t even have to give them water after I opened the box. I was really impressed and the plants looked great. Thanks!!!

Placed a very large order this spring and received all the plants in excellent condition. They continue to be my favorite nursery. Their selection is excellent.

I ordered from Lazy S's based on the reviews I read. This is an excellent company -- I ordered 4 plants-- all were beautifully packed. The shipping was delayed and I received a charming e-mail explaining why. It all worked out great -- the box only sat at my residence for about an hour before I came home and planted them. All the plants have thrived. The website has loads of information. Great variety -- good prices. I will order again from this company.

I have purchased catalog and online nursery plants for 30 years. Lazy S'S Farm & Nursery's selection, stock, and shipping materials are by far the best ever.

Back-ordered plants arrived over the weekend and are perfect, as expected. I did lose my caryopteris from the initial shipping, but it was entirely my fault, as I over watered the poor thing. Everything else is thriving.

Order just arrived and everything is beautiful. These people have made an art of shipping plants! I just can't sing high enough praise. Of all the plants I bought last year, many of them locally, theirs are doing the best in my yard. Doing business with them is a pleasure- they don't miss a beat. Just perfect.

I ordered 6 pocomoke crape myrtle shrubs from Lazy SS after seeing the reviews on Daves Garden. They were packaged great! Beautiful little shrubs. I actually needed 8 more of them went back to their website to order them...I saw that they would ship them out for 13 more days after I placed the order. I understand...Spring has Sprung....nurseries are very busy. That was just not going to work for me. Found another nursey on Daves Garden.

This is my second year ordering from Lazy S's Farm, which I discovered through Dave's Garden. They have an incredibly diverse inventory, and the most careful packaging I have ever seen! All the asclepias plants I purchased last year came back beautifully. This year's purchases (vines & perennials) were robust on arrival and are all thriving.

No problems when ordering from Lazy S'S Farm anytime for me. They have a great selection, very good communication and ship healthy plants. Will continue with them each year.

Best supplier I've ever seen. Plants are uniformly healthy and well started. The most important part is the packaging. Neat, organized, clean, low environmental impact. Nary a bent leave or plant or soil loose in boxes. The uniformity of pot size and a well designed and adhered to packing plan is key. No wads of newspaper ot foam peanuts or shredded paper, or loose dirt. Other suppliers have nice plants but are problematic to unpack! Love you Lazy S'S!

Received my latest order from Lazyssfarm yesterday. Every single plant was healthy and beautiful AS USUAL! I have ordered from them at least a dozen times now and I have never been disappointed. Last year I ordered milkweed. I was concerned about it because they were very bare looking without many leaves. They explained that is the best way to ship milkweed. And they were right! The plants thrived. When I am ready to share milkweed I will follow their lead. Don't be afraid to order from this company. I order a lot of mail order plants and in my opinion they are one of the best and definitely the best in Virginia!

I purchased five Sanguinaria canadensis from Lazy S'S and when my plants arrived and I opened the box what I discovered was some of the most thorough and protective packaging I've ever seen for a plant shipment... not to mention the plants themselves were wonderfully healthy, vigorous and fresh. They are now happily growing in their new home.

I've ordered from Lazy S Nursery twice. The plants arrive very well-packaged and sometimes with a haircut for shipping. The root systems are fantastic and the plants always settle in fast. The variety of plants offered is incredible and I already know I'll be ordering more plants this spring.

I ordered 6 hardy plumbago, kind of late in the season, and I was impressed by their immediate answers to questions I had about this plant. They are really experts in packaging -- not one leaf was bent! It's now late October, and they are still blooming gloriously! P.S. Try hardy plumbago if you want a flower that is truly BLUE, or if you want something that blooms happily in the fall. Wonderful plant, great company!

I ordered two plants as a gift for a relative of mine a month ahead of the shipping date. Lazy S'S Farm and Nursery were wonderful, they remembered the shipping date and they arrived the next day. My relative said that the plants were the healthiest she had ever seen and were beautifully packaged. I am extremely happy with the service and hope to use them again in the future.

I would have to describe my experiences with this company as over-the-top positive, with my latest order being a good example. I ordered quite a few plants very late in the season this year, and was amazed that every single plant I ordered not only arrived very quickly, but that the plants were in spectacular shape, with not a single damaged leaf, a single bent stem, or a single peanut in sight! Their website is not only beautiful and informative, but is obviously updated by someone who really cares that their customers not order plants that are not actually available. I would highly recommend this company - and their wonderful staff - to any and all gardeners.

I am an experienced shade gardener from Southern Maryland and this is my first time ordering from Lazy S'S Farm. I was looking for a specific hellebore variety, and they had it, and in the quantity I wanted. My plants arrived quickly and were expertly packaged! My plants were well rooted and very stout. Usually hellebores that have this degree of maturity will have some blooms in the coming season. I made my second order, that will ship out this Monday. Email and package tracking info were excellent. I would recommend placing your order from a desk top PC, as I used my tablet and my order confirmation went to my "junk mail".

First time ordering from them, and I really like the whole vibe of their (obviously family run) company. Very personal communications, extremely responsive to questions, and great selection of unusual plants. Their website is fantastic. My two plants were expertly packaged and very high quality. I will continue to order from them in the future.

I received another great order from Lazy S's. Great selection, permanent shopping cart and wish list. I am always putting stuff in and taking stuff out, but the stuff is always there, they do not delete your shopping cart. I have great success finding things that are hard to find. I got three great plants today and they were very healthy and packed perfect. Great customer service and instructions, shipping confirmation and fast service. Thank you!

I ordered plants from this company last year. They arrived healthy, strong, and well packaged. They all survived and grew well. When one plant failed to bloom true to type this year I contacted them and received an immediate response, and an offer to replace the plant or refund for the purchase. Excellent customer service.

We have very limited selection locally so when I want something unusual I go to the internet. I searched for some Daphne and Mock Orange to plant near my patio and sliding glass door so we could enjoy the fragrance indoors and out. I found them here and placed my order.

They have a very wide selection, and the prices are ok. I still think the plants could be bigger for the price paid, or that the price paid could be lower for the size received.

I ordered some crossvine (bignonia capreolata) from Lazy S'S, which I found doing an internet search because crossvine was not available at local nurseries. Ordering process was easy. When the plants were shipped, Lazy S'S sent me an email with shipping information and instructions on how to handle the plants when they arrived. Packaging was phenomenal. Plants arrived in perfect condition. Email communication was excellent. Lazy S'S will be my first choice for ordering plants.

I have ordered from Lazy SS Nursery a number of times in the past ten years. Their selection is fantastic. This week I visited Longwood Gardens in PA and saw about ten unusual plants I just had to have. When I got home I sat down at the computer to search for the plants and thought it would take some time. To my surprise I found every single plant at Lazy SS. A couple were out of stock, not surprising in June, but at least I can get them next year. I have ordered from them in the summer in the past and the plants always arrive in great shape. I can't wait to get my order.

I received an order of shortia galacifolia,3 different sarcocococcas and a dierama.All plants were in great shape as usual. I have been ordering from lazy ss for years and have never been disappointed.Today I placed another order with them for tarragon, rosemary and butterfly weed.In fact I never knew they offered tarragon at all until I read a posting on dave's garden saying how wonderful lazy ss' clone was.So, while on their website I couln't resist ordering a couple of more things .

I just received an order of five phloxes and one dicentra, as usual everything arrived quickly and in great shape. Most of the plants I've ordered from them over the years are still in my garden and doing beautifully. I can't recommend them too highly.

The plants I received from Lazy S were very healthy, well packed and in perfect condition. I will definitely be ordering from them again - they have a great selection, reasonable prices, and they don't charge outrageous shipping fees. I also really like buying from a small family-run business. Debby is excellent at communication and customer service. Highly recommend!

Very impressed with the variety, quality and quantity of available plants. Communication was not lacking with this company. They kept me informed of the status of my order and when it was to be delivered. It is very clear that each plant is treated like one of their very own children. I would definitely order from them again. The packaging of plants was very impressive and clever. Not a leaf or branch broken during shipment. Thank you for my beautiful plants.
