Niche Gardens was easy to work with. They had the specific plant that I wanted. It came healthy and was shipped in a safe and box. I will order from them again.

I've ordered plants from Niche several times over the years. They always arrive carefully packaged to protect against damage during shipping. And, over the years, plants I ordered from Niche have thrived. I recently had a question about the health of some plants I'd ordered - upon arrival, the leaves were pale green and I thought they looked sickly. So I sent them an email, and within a couple hours, the company responded. They explained that this particular plant was entering dormancy at this time of year, so the lack of a deep green color at this point was completely normal. I was pleased at their quick response. I won't hesitate to order from them again!

I placed my online order with Niche Gardens a month ago with a requested ship date for this week. The plants arrived right on time and were exactly as described on their website. I received an email letting me know that the plants had shipped as well as shipment tracking information. Excellent packaging/plants.

I'm 60 and have been buying mail order plants for most of my life. The plants just received from my first-ever order from Niche may have been the most beautifully packaged (yet without waste) that I have ever received.

They were also sent promptly -- amazingly so. I placed the order online and in the comments section simply asked that they be sent as soon as possible. I received them within a week. And each pot received is very full, with strong roots and with multiple stems per pot.

Wonderful experience. Ordered two Annabell Hydrangea mid-March, and received them promptly within a few days. They were both healthy little stalks about 5-6" tall packed into a square container of dirt with news paper packed on top to keep the dirt in. I soaked them and placed them on the window sill until they could be planted. In about 2 or 3 days, both started budding new growth, and once planted they took off. :)

Of the two, one is doing very well and recently blossomed a beautiful cluster of flowers about 5" in diameter and is continuing to thrive. The second one unfortunately has been attacked by bugs down to the stalk (not the nursery's fault).

Looking forward to getting more plants from Niche Gardens.

First time customer. Plants arrived on time and were packed properly and arrived in good condition. Plants were well rooted but the prices are a bit high on some items given the size of the plants. Would order more uncommon items from them in the future.

I was looking for a fragrant honeysuckle and mints and I wandered onto their website and was amazed at the selection of plants. Ordered Winter Honeysuckle and a few native mountain mints back in October. Everything was shipped fast. I\'m looking forward to next year and seeing how these plants do. I really liked the magazine that came with it. Beautiful cover.

Many years later, Niche Gardens is still excellent. Ordered 4 Hemerocallis Autumn Minaret (not easy to find). Meg contacted me to verify that it was not too hot here for planting at my requested date, which I really appreciated. They arrived perfectly packed, with wonderful root systems. Will definitely order again.

I ordered 2 Autumn Minaret daylilies from Niche Gardens and 2 days later I received them! They are the largest plants I've received by mail, packed beautifully, and I couldn't be happier. Do not hesitate to order from Niche Gardens. I certainly will in the future.

Niche Gardens certainly deserves their Watchdog Top 5 rating. Meg Sorrel worked with me with delivery dates several times since our weather was so bad here I couldn't begin to prepare my beds. She always responded promptly with a new date and said if that date didn't work I could change it again . My plants arrived today and they are beautiful. They were packed so well that not even small crumbs of dirt fell out of the pots. I will definitely order from Niche Gardens again. They have moved to the top of my list of companies from which to order.

I have been ordering from Niche gardens since 2013. It is like ordering from a friend they are so helpful and attentive. Always returning emails quickly. The plants are healthy and a good size for the price, they offer an excellent selection of natives too. I only wish they were within a quick drive from my home.

This was my first time ordering with Niche Gardens and I was apprehensive, but I'm glad I did.

The two plants that I received were very strong and healthy mature plants. They were packed extremely well. Both were labeled professionally ... and with the correct names.

They were shipped out quickly and not damaged.

I thought $16 shipping and handling was high, but I would buy from them again if I really wanted a plant they had.

Placed an internet order over the weekend. Wanted to add a plant, so I called Monday. They were in the process of packing my order, and cheerfully said they could add the extra plants. Plants arrived the next day. Packing was good, condition of plants on arrival was good. Plants will be going into dormancy soon, so only time will tell how health the plants are and if they will emerge from dormancy in the spring, but I have the utmost faith that they will. I have bought plants from Niches before at their NC location and was pleased. All of those plants are still doing great.

Ordered a fragrant honeysuckle vine from Niche a couple weeks ago. Their standards are so high, I really appreciated the care they took from all levels. They emailed me to let me know for the shipping cost I could add more to my order, they also had UPS send me an email regarding delivery... and the care they took wrapping up my plant for safe delivery was wonderful too! Upon receiving my plant there was a comment card (stamped), Unpacking and planting instructions, shipping notes and a catalog. No wonder they rate this high I will be using this company again in the near future!!!

I love this supplier and recommend them without hesitation. I ordered some hard to find shrubs after looking for them in many places. They had them and were able to confirm that what I was seeking was indeed what they had. I'd ordered what I'd thought were these bushes last year and gotten a different version, so I was a bit gun shy about it.

They arrived quickly and in superior condition. I've ordered shrubs from other places and the condition of the plants upon arrival from other nurseries was nowhere near as healthy as the ones I received from Niche Gardens. These were truly ready to plant.

As I said before, the email interaction was most excellent as I asked for and received some clarification. And in spite of (on my part) a solid lack of proofreading and a dubious bit of spelling, they understood what I was asking and we all enjoyed a hearty guffaw together!!

These folks are just delightful. They are knowledgeable and engaged in the business of plants, obviously taking great pride in their products. I have absolutely found the niche I've been seeking in mail order gardening. Plus, if I ever get down that way, I'll be stopping in, credit card in hand!!!

I LOVE this place!!!

To clarify... the plants I ordered and got last year that were a different version of what I sought, were NOT from Niche Gardens, but from elsewhere. Niche had the shrubs (a specific variety of spirea that has both a double and single flower ~ I wanted the double) and this was the question I had. They were able to assure me that I was getting what I wanted.

First order from Niche Gardens. Have been looking for red sprite winterberry for a while. My order came today and I was very impressed at how well the plants were packed. Can't wait for them to come out of dormancy.
