I have purchased many perennials and vines from the MGC at their Merrifield location last summer and also this summer. Everything from tiarella, plumeria, many clematis, jacob's ladder, callirhoe, salvia, nepeta, etc. I purchased 2 huge pyrancantha last year which are thriving and a huge wisteria (5' tall) this season. Overall they have great quality and the customer service is amazing. Their annuals are expensive so I typically get them some place else unless it's something unusual that only they sell.

On May 21st, 2010, carolrees changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:

Their plants are very good and they provide good assistance for them but I had a bad experience with their landscaping services. I hired them to prune 2 trees, and weed and mulch my backyard. They did a good job on the trees and were reasonably priced but they were way overpriced for the weeding and mulching and killed a number of my plants. They seemed to have hired people off the street for that who had no experience and were incompetent at laying down mulch. They spread too much and covered up about 30 of my plants. I spent a lot of time in the next fews days uncovering plants that they had totally covered and trying to save a number of them. I would hire them again for pruning services but I would NEVER HIRE them to do anything else in the yard.

I enjoy browsing this place. I am impressed by the selection. The annuals are in awful shape so I prefer to go to Cox farms in vienna, va instead for annuals because although they have less selection, always have quality plants. Merrifield has a nice selection of shrubs, and perennials also. Their prices are a little high though. Overall I like browsing this place, but am discouraged by the terrible condition most of their annuals are in, as well as many of their perennials. The only plants that seem to be in GOOD condition for the most part in the whole place are the shrubs. I still go from time to time to comb the entire place in hopes of finding goodies in good condition:)
