A few months ago, four different types of fragrant jasmine plants were ordered. All of them arrived in perfect condition and are still thriving today with minimal care. They came with care instructions, and not a single leaf was lost or stem broken. Will order from Logee's again. Oh! and I love their YouTube videos on plant care.

I've been ordering plants from Logee's since 1987, yes, even before the days of online ordering and internet. I did it the old fashioned way, via catalogs and magazines and sending snail mail with a hand-written check.

I have placed four orders through Logees, totaling over $450, and have had great luck with their plants. They are packaged very thoughtfully and shipped timely. I really like their selection of rare and fruiting plats, some of the plants I have received include: Eucalyptus, Pineapple Guava, Variegated Pink Eureka Lemon, Vanilla Vine, and Black Cotton. Their plants are not the cheapest, but they are a quality product.

I ordered from Logee’s earlier this year, they mailed my plant at the time I asked them to. Due to no fault on Logee’s side the USPS fumbled and ended up forwarding my plant to the wrong address. I called up Logee’s when I didn’t received my order on the expected day and even with the busy covid-19 rush they still took time to figure out what went wrong and called me back to explain it to me. They didn’t have a replacement plant so they refunded me. They have amazing customer service, I plan to order from them again when the plant is back in stock.

Purchased mandarin orange and coffee tree from logee that arrived today. Plants are in excellent condition, packing was very good. Great experience and will buy from them again. Plants were in better shape than 90 % of the plants I have received from other nurseries

Although the response from Tina indicates they could not identify me, someone at Logee's did find my account and previous emails. I learned that they have issued a credit for the plants and I am generally satisfied the this matter has been resolved, especially after I told them I didn't need the refund.
As I stated in my initial review, I still have mixed feelings about this firm but I' m changing my rating from negative to positive as they handled this review far more professionally than my email to the company.

I received my first order from Logee’s today. Shipping was fast. Plants were packaged securely. I ordered two different varieties of paw paws and a lucky bean tree. The paw paws were nice, healthy, grafted seedlings in tree band pots. The lucky bean tree was a large starter plant in a nursery pot. I am very happy with my order and will order again. Thanks to Logee’s for making the lucky bean tree available again after being absent from brick and mortar stores for some inexplicable reason.

Another SUPERB transaction from Logee's. I ordered 2 of the Colocasia gigantea "Giant Elephant Ear" and am totally blown away by them. They are HUGE!
Plant material-AWESOMELY GREATNESS!
I will be a repeat, repeat customer!

After hearing about Logee's for several years now, my other half asked if we were up for a day trip. I happily obliged! Logee's is about a 4 + hour drive from us, and it was worth it. We walked throughout the greenhouses and came home with several plants. We bought a Sensitive plant, a tuberous Begonia 'Martha Stewart,' Tree Fern, Golden Pothos, Ray of Light Agave, and a few others I can't remember. As always, their customer service was spot on, super friendly, and very accommodating! I'm on their wait list for a variegated Monstera and Pink Princess Philodendrum. Can't wait to order or visit again!

I have ordered from Logee's numerous times and have never been disappointed. They have lots of unique and unusual plants, continually adding to their varieties. They publish information online about caring for you plants and have videos online as well. AND most importantly, every time I have ordered I have gotten well grown, healthy, well packaged plants in perfect condition.

Well--after trying fruitlessly (so to speak) to grow Logee's citrus in my house--I gave up. I spent ALOT of money on Meyer's lemons, key limes, finger limes--and on and on. The only one that survived more than a year was a Kaffir lime. Many bit the dust after a few months-often prey to bugs. I figured that conditions in my house were too unfavorable. And then-against my better judgement I bought a Meyer's lemon from a local nursery. It cost $22 and was healthy and flowering. After at least 18 months--including a brutal Winter and Summer-- it is flourishing--and not a bug has come near it. 6 little lemons are on it now and it is big and healthy. I thought back on all the plants from Logee's that died (I recall an etrog that was about 2 inches tall and didn't seem to have a root system. It died in two weeks). I have probably wasted nearly $1000 on plants that never should have been mailed out. Its pretty infuriating.

A while back they had a promotion that gave free shipping for a largish order. I couldn't resist. Even though they had a promotion going on--all the plants I received were well grown and in good shape. Some months later the only problems I have had is in keeping them pruned so they don't take over my house. This may be an isolated experience--but it is possible that they have turned things around really nicely.

NEWS FLASH!!As of today,Martin Luther King Day,the decision is in-No replacements without PHOTOGRAPHIC PROOF. Plants shipped on 9th[so say supplier]Recievied here on the 11th.Plants dying on arrival,now definitly dead.Logees say they cannot perish in such a short time.Agreed.Since stems are green but spongy,it strongly suggests they were frozen in transit.USPS is not concerned about temps on live items....Since this week has had record lows and snowed in at airports,etc.it is the only logical explanation.[Yes,Mr.Spock!]Good thing I have a sense of humor and love Jesus dearly,cuz the temptation to go the other way is beckoning!!!I guess all the $ and years of patronage went over their heads.....so I suggest to anyone that cares to take note of the NEW unannounced policy----NO replace w/o PROOF.Your word and loyalty mean nothing.A sad condition of the times we live in.L.AlligoodAloha,Logees!Was nice while it was!

Still ordering and getting wonderful rex begonias and a few other plants from Logee's. Beautifully packaged and healthy.
In case you are sleeping under a log, shipping is costly and continues to rise.

Despite their dubious distinction of being very expensive on their shipping charges, I have been a repeat customer of Logees for the past 5 years as they are one of the only places where I can find some of the plants I grow, all of the plants I've ordered from them have been healthy, & none of my orders have ever arrived damaged.

This is the third time I have ordered from Logee's. The plants have all arrived in excellent condition and were well-packed even though I live in rural Wisconsin and they ship from Connecticut. Yes, the prices are higher, but sometimes you get what you pay for. I've bought a variety of plants, ranging from Venus fly-traps to "tooth-ache plant" to guavas to Meyer lemon to black goji berry to two varieties of kumquats and other citrus. All are still living and most are thriving..

I ordered some citrus in the end of year sale, and did not expect them until March when the weather warmed up here in Iowa. Instead they got them shipped to me safely in January. The plants look good, with larger plants than expected for 4" pots. Great selection of interesting plants.

I just received my order. They had a free shipping offer if you purchased over $100 worth of plants and I couldn't resist. The plants really look great and were pretty good size. Really I get excited when I open these mail order boxes from nurseries. I will continue to order from this nursery.

Great! They let me know exactly what was going on with the shipping status. The plant was well packaged and came with directions. I expected it to be small because it was in a 2.5 inch pot. It was actually very tall and had 9 mature leaves on it. I repotted it and it looks healthy with lots of leaves. I hope it will bloom this summer.

I have ordered from Logee's many times going back 40 years before there was a website and they just had a skinny catalog with mostly begonias. We have both grown up together. Recently I received my spring order and again was very satisfied. The fun for me is growing the plants up to maturity. I know that i will be getting a small plant in a 2" pot as is shown on their website so I don't expect to receive plants ready to display. They ship promptly. It is my favorite mailorder nursery for their huge variety and reliability.

I had a great experience with LOGEE'S - in fact the plants were in excellent shape = perfect, all wrapped in a silk black material that feels like silk with white shredded material for stuffing. Everything was extremely well packed and therefore the plants were in stellar shape. I ordered 18 Scaevola aemula "Fan Flower" and 3 Schizostylis Coccinea 'Major'. This actually is the best packaging and condition of plants I have ever received from anyone or any place barring of course going to a local nursery and picking out my own. I will DEFINITELY be ordering from Logee's again. The quality was stellar. It did take them 9 days before they shipped, but then I got the order in 3 days and I just had standard shipping (Pacific Northwest) and Logee's is in Connecticut. So I am very impressed with Logee's. They also put in a coupon if I do another order in 15 days after receipt of this order I get another 10% off. So I gotta look at my plant wish list again.

Have been ordering plants, both indoor and outdoor, from them for nearly 40 years. Plants are almost always larger than described and of high quality. Most have to be moved to larger pots soon after receiving. Those plants that have not survived are likely my fault as is the almost always the case with most people and plants.

Ordered a few fruit trees from them this month. Arrived well packed, small but healthy and showing signs of new growth. I enjoy watching their youtube tours of the greenhouse and I hope they will post more informational videos about their products in the future. Thanks!

I ordered a butterfly bush named Miss Molly. It was supposed to be red. Both the description and image in the catalog stated it was to be red. When it arrived it was purple. I sent an email to Logee's and within a day they apologized for the mistake and sent me another. It hasn't bloomed yet, so I'm not positive it is red. But I hope it is. I also have a purple one to find a home for.

So happy with my recent order! I ordered 3 "Stingray" Elephant Ears, a Persian Lime plant, and a Dwarf Jamaican Heliconia. All of the plants were in great shape when they arrived and were packaged amazingly- small pots with dirt and protective plastic for shipping, each plant was wrapped in tissue and placed securely into a proper sized box. All of the plants are adjusting well and I couldn't be happier. Will definitely order more from them- the stock is excellent and their variety of rare plants is a bonus.

I was a little reluctant to order houseplants in one of the worst winters in many years. But they said they would ship when the weather permitted. The plants arrived in perfect condition; all were healthy (a few in bud stage). I have never had plants so carefully packed and so well protected for shipping. On my second order, the experience was the same; nothing broken or damaged and no spilled dirt all over the bottom of the boxes. Everything very healthy. They have a wide variety to choose from and even have special sales periodically. I will definitely make future purchases from Logees.

I will upgrade my status to a positive and reconsider staying with logees if I here back promptly on why my plant was placed in a hot lock box instead of delivered to my door. If I hadn't of retrieved my jasmine when I did from the mail box it would have been toast. My review below was a tad harsh. Heat of the moment type situation. That is why I'm moving to neutral. But I still find the way my plant was delivered unexceptable.

Since I just placed another order with this company I felt it was time to comment again. My most recent order prior to this was lost by USPS. The tracking system showed it being received and processed by the facility in Connecticut mutiple times(three or four). When it did finally arrive the plants were dead and dry. Even though the problem wasn't Logee's fault, they promptly replaced the order without argument. That's a win in my book. Thanks!

My experience with Logee's has been wonderful. The plants are well-packed when shipped. They are also prompt in answering my e-mails. I ordered two Miracle Fruit plants in December, and they are doing very well. They were growing so large that I was advised to transplant into non-glazed terra cotta pots. I did so two weeks ago and they are thriving. I can hardly wait to get my berries. Thank you, Logee's.

I agree with some of the comments that Logee's plants are quite expensive. However, in my several orders to them, all the plants arrived in great condition, very well packaged, good size, and are all growing well. It's also true, as mentioned, that they carry plants that cannot easily be found anywhere else, which is the main reason I started ordering from the.m

I was contacted by Logee's Customer Service regarding my dissappointment and a replacement tree was sent. The replacement was a bigger and nicer tree. I am completely satsified and I appreciate that fact they went out of their way to provided exceptional customer service. The Logee catalog is filled with a huge variety of plants and trees so I can definitely see a future purchase. I have no reservation about recommending them to other gardners - good customer service is ultimately what we expect and deserve for our hard earned money! Thanks Logee's!!!
