I was nonplussed when I received a small box from Fieldstone in April after making a perennial order of 9 plants. However, I potted up the bare-root perennials, which were just breaking dormancy. All of the plants had substantial root systems. They are now (early June) healthy and robust plants in the perennial border.

This nursery has a very large selection of very hardy perennials (they are in Maine), including many unusual, hard-to-find, and/or new selections. The divisions are a good size and their prices are reasonable. I do wish their website had pictures along with their descriptions (though you can obviously copy links or google the plant, I have been spoiled by so many nurseries having pictures on the same page as the name/description, which allows for easy scanning). Website aside, I will definitely look to this nursery first when I place my orders next year.

I have ordered from countless online nurseries for decades and I highly recommend this nursery.

I agree with Fluffy Squirrel- Bob, you Rock! I ordered 3 Pulmonaria that came bare root. They were all 3 (three) hard to find anywhere else. They were bare root and did not survive the shipping. I contacted the company I was somewhat on the defensive- I was dealing with another company at the time with no results.
Bob contacted me right away. He was apologetic, and wanted to make sure I knew about the plant and the signs it would exhibit if too much sun...
He then offered to refill the order and get it out 2 day delivery. The new plants arrived and they were wonderful. The fact that he got right back to me and reshipped without question makes the disappointment a thing of the past. It is especially appreciated this year, since I have very bad customer service to compare it too.
I would highly recommend this company based on the quality of the 2nd shipment and the customer Service. Thank you Bob!

I ordered three sarasto campanula plants, which are not easy to find, I received my plants in three days. The plants looked very healthy and had lots of roots. The price was cheaper than many of the other nurseries that carried them, but mostly were sold out.

I will order again from this Fieldstone, they have a wide variety of perennials, many unusual cultivars with very reasonable prices.

All I can say is, Bob, you rock:-)! Recently I had questions about the Tiny Monster Geranium. He was quick to respond to my emails, very helpful and extremely informative. I bought several, and they were packed meticulously and arrived swiftly and in happy, healthy condition. It didn't take long for these to begin thriving. I highly recommend Fieldstone Gardens; you will not be disappointed!!

I made an order for Siberian iris this spring and was very pleased with the size and condition of the plants - they looked great. A couple even had bloom scapes that survived the trip. Each plant was neatly packed with sphagnum moss and there wasn't a brown leaf in the bunch.

I made a substitution with my order rather late in the game and they were very quick to respond to my request and change the order, no questions asked. I'll definitely order from Fieldstone again and would recommend them to anyone looking for hardy perennials. They were a pleasure to deal with.

I ordered Siberian Iris 10-22 and rec'd them 10-27. A couple of the ones I wanted were out of stock, but the ones I got were very large. I would have to say that these are the biggest I have ever bought. Very happy with this company.

Had never heard of Fieldstone until they were listed as a source in an article about Hellebores. I ordered them, they arrived quickly and were packed well. Could not be happier with the plants or the service.

Ordered from Fieldstone for the first time, because of some of their more unusual plants (some heirloom, some common in Maine, but uncommon elsewhere). They all did well over the unusually wet summer, while many other plants just surrendered. I was pleased to be able to cut my first sweet fern leaves for herbal tea; sweet fern was one of the plants I was able to acquire from Fieldstone, a shrubby tough plant that many people would wonder about planting. But because it is tough and can take abuse (even of the occasional plow shearing) and makes great tea, I was delighted to find a nursery that carried it. One of many gems from an interesting center. Also glad to see that Fieldstone has a relationship with Fedco (noted in the Fedco Trees catalog), for those who wish to support independent growers.

I have ordered from this company for the past 2 years with nothing but good results. All plants have been well wrapped and marked. All have done well in my zone 6 climate. I would recommend doing business with this company.

I placed an order in December for two different varieties of phlox and a miscanthus. The plants came the exact week in May that I requested. They were good-sized chunks of healthy plants wrapped in damp moss, and all are growing well.

Brown paper packages tied up with strings. Well, actually, rubber bands. Although the packaging was unusual (brown or grey paper wrapped around the rootball secured with a rubber band and the label stuck inside the rubber band) the plants were healthy though somewhat on the small side. I ordered a lot of stuff: daylillies, delphinium, aconitum, campanulla, iris, hollyhocks and coreopsis verticillata. Some of the labels became separated from the plants during shipping so it was a bit of a challenge to match everything up. I think my order took longer to get from Maine to PA than anticipated. The extra transit time probably affected the quality b/c two plants (a hollyhock and the coreopsis) didn't look so good on arrival. I planted anyway and neither grew. But the friendly people at Fieldstone are replacing those two plants. These folks are very nice and personable people to deal with. Very quick to react to email. They grow and ship superbly healthy stock at great prices, have a wonderful extensive catalog on the web, and I will remain a customer of theirs for years to come.

I've ordered from Fieldstone Gardens over the past 6 years at least- maybe more! These folks have a broad selection of hardy perennials and the Currrier McEwen sibierian irises they offer are a beautiful tribute to the work of this inspirational iris hybridizer. The number of plants Fieldstone Gardens offers expands each year and since they are a northern New England nursery the shipping costs for me are good-the plants they ship are large and healthy. I've also managed to go there- and it's a pretty spot to to visit--Lots and lots of great plants!

“Great big roots in good condition delivered in a timely manner,” the previous reviewer said. Ditto—and with service that is courteous, prompt and responsive. A great source for healthy, 2-yr. field-grown plants of hard-to-find genera and unique species. They will have me as a repeating customer.

I have had the pleasure of visting Fieldstone Gardens 3 times this summer. It is the most impressive nursery I have ever visited. Lovely wide selection of plants. I purchased many named Daylilys and Hosta's. Was very impressed with their hosta selections even in mid August all their hostas are in great shape! A++++. If you are lucky enough to be close enough to visit don't pass this one up! They have lovely gardens to wander through.

I ordered a couple of hostas and a peony from this company. They have a wonderful website. The plants arrived carefully wrapped in brown paper and secure in the box. The plants were in wonderful condition & bigger then I expected.
Also included with my order was a postcard to send back asking my opinion on the plants & packing, and a discount card for my next order. I could tell this company loves & takes pride in what they do. I will order again from Fieldstone in the future.

As a resident of Maine I have visited these gardens 3 times and found them to be very healthy and beautiful visually as well.. I have purchased plants at the site and also used the mail order and can say I have been very satisfied. If you are ever in the Augusta Maine area in growing season it is worth seeking this place out. It is tucked away on a country road and absolutely beautiful.

I had the pleasure of ordering from Fieldstone recently and would highly recommend them to anyone. Their communication is terrific and friendly, whether dealing with problem credit cards(mine),or tricky poppy plants that did not not survive to be shipped(theirs). The plants we agreed upon for shipment came beautifully packaged and in terrific shape. I look forward to ordering more of the same plants when they are ready next year as well as new ones.

I've been ordering from Fieldstone for about 3 years and would recommend them - especially to gardeners in the colder zones. I can be pretty sure that anything I get from them will be cold hardy here. They have a very interesting selection of plants - a reflection on the fact that they grow the things they sell and make judgments about the garden worthiness of their offerings. I did get a couple of pots with weeds growing in them - a minor annoyance given the huge size of their plants and their good customer service.
