This is my third or fourth order with Classy Groundcovers and each order has been for many plants. I cannot say enough good about the company. The personal service is delightful and the plants are great. One time they even called me to let me know that an order would be billed in a different amount since I qualified for a quantity discount. Now that is great service. No complaints just many compliments.

I have ordered from Classy Groundcovers for years and have always been more than pleased with this business. Easy ordering, quick delivery, and super healthy plants. I have a high end landscaping company in Charleston, SC and it's nice to have a dependable source for consistently quality plants.

I ordered one thousand of the bare root plants and was surprised to see that when they arrived that each plant had a small amount of very healthy green leaves already! They are thriving in my flower beds in Litchfield County CT. I am getting ready to put in another large order!

Order some lovely little English Ivy Plants. These little plants arrived fresh and packaged well in their box, not a damaged one among them. We were only able to half in one weekend, sprayed them to keep them moist in their dirt ball and then plant the rest the next week. No problems. Actually we will be ordering more.

The plants arrived well packed, obviously had been watered before packing. I took the time to read the instructions before planting and found that I have enough time before our temps drop too low.

They are all in the ground. So far I have not seen any stress from the transplanting.

Now for Spring to arrive to see how they do.

I ordered 10 Christmas ferns from Classy Groundcovers. They arrived promptly in good condition (bare root plants) and are doing well in my garden. Instructions provided were clear. I will use this vendor again.

I have ordered from them three times (bare root plants and potted) so far and am yet to be disappointed. Each time the plants arrived on time, packaged with care and looking perfectly healthy. They were packaged in a sturdy, waxed cardboard box, surrounded by newspaper.
Their "Plant Finder" system is a breeze to use and allows you to narrow down your needs and planting conditions to find what you're looking for.
They also allow you to schedule your exact shipping date and provide an estimate of how long your plants will take to arrive based on your zip code. If you want to plant Saturday morning, you can very easily arrange to have the plants there on Friday afternoon, with minimal transit time involved.

Classy Ground Coverings had an extremely detailed, helpful website to ensure I was making the correct purchase for my location (zone 5) and area in my garden. They customized the ship date, packaging was well planned, and the plants were more robust than I had anticipated them to be. Ordered 24 vinca minor in 2.5" pots, 24 Liriope muscari big blue 3.5" pots, and 10 astilbe bare roots. The Big Blue started getting bigger within the first week in the ground. I'd have never guessed the astilbe were bare root plants because they were nice and leafy. The vinca minor are on a shaded, wet slope and I haven't noticed any growth after 3 weeks in the ground but they look healthy. I've been telling everyone I know about my success in buying online with CG and will continue to order from them. I wish they'd carry all plants because I would order from no one else. Thanks Dave's Garden for the referral and thank you CG for being 100% reliable.

I am always apprehensive that the plants I order will look as good as they appear in the site description, so I didn't get my hopes up when I placed my order. Boy was I pleasantly surprised when they arrived. Full healthy plants that greatly exceeded my expectations. I will most certainly consider Classy Groundcovers in the future.
I was also impressed with how my plants came packed for shipping. I kept the base of my shipping box to use as a tray for moving my seedlings when ready to plant.

Super easy site to find what I needed when I did not know what I needed. The plants arrived quickly, looked great despite shipment in cold weather.

Packed well, insulated with moss and crumpled newspaper. Free shipping made it an even better value.

The box got a little crushed by UPS but the plants were not harmed because of the cushioning. I will be ordering more in the spring.

I was initially sad to learn that they do not ship to Canada (because of legal restrictions), but found a way around that: have them ship to someone near Canada and have them reship it to you in Canada.

The small incremental increase in shipping charge (over their free ashipping) is well worth it.

Made my first purchase from Classy Groundcovers the weekend before last. I received my ship date the following Monday - and the plants were on my doorstep by Thursday.

Beautifully packed, good size and shape, healthy plants.

I was so impressed that I placed another order this weekend. Looking forward to planting more phlox this coming weekend :)

I have been ordering from Classy Groundcovers for several years. This includes several varieties of ferns, a lot of vinca minor, and most recently phlox. Every order has arrived in excellent condition, packed very well, very healthy plants, and none of the plants have died. I have nothing but positive things to say about this company and the service I have received.

A great experience!!! Plants arrived in excellent condition and very prompt (all 324 of them). Instructions for planting were very helpful and I followed them closely. It has been well over a month and they are all still alive and doing really well!! Probably doubled in size already, if not more. Word to the wise - make sure you have a good chunk of time to plant if you order 324 plants, it takes some time to do it right.

I\\\'ve ordered multiple times from this company and only had one problem before. They sent the wrong order, which they fixed promptly. Today I tried to use one of their discounts which they email ed to me. I placed the order but got no discount. I called I wrote emails. I did this again and again. No one picks up the phone no one responds to emails. They are open to take my order but not to give any feed back. I received the email come on this week so I know they are in business, and I expect to get a response. I\\\'m sure they\\\'ll fix this eventually, but I\\\'m already over invested in time trying to contact them. If your open for business be responsive. Very irksome IMO

On September 4th, 2014, Memphis_Aggie changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

They fixed it. I admit I was impatient but the multiple unanswered phone calls in the middle of a business day definitely set my teeth on edge. Better not to have a phone number if you never answer it or can\'t cover it. I\'ll reset to neutral: it was too hard to reach them to get a positive. Like their stuff and their prices BTW. I will likely order from them again.
On September 5th, 2014, Memphis_Aggie changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

I was looking at the mass plantings in my garden yesterday and recalling how inexpensive they were to put together and how happy I've been with the results. Classy Groundcovers was crucial part of that. So what if they don't have the slickest website or fastest phone call returns; that's not what really matters. In fact it may pat of the reason they are so reasonably priced. So I'm changing my comment to positive, the company should suffer just because I was irritable.

I needed many plants this year, ordered from Totally Tomato, Bluestone perennials, NH hostas, American Meadows, Classy Groundcovers, & Dans Dahlias. I will comment on each site as the orders come in.
I ordered 24 phlox from Classy Groundcovers and it came well packed with moist newspaper, pots appeared moist and plants were good color.
it took 4 days shipping but didnt seem to be a problem.
i would use again, but can only buy in bulk.

2014 plants arrived yesterday,(24 ajuga & 48 phlox) all looks good and healthy

I ordered 24 pots of a vinca variety and they arrived well-packed and very healthy. Communication during shipment was great, I always knew where the plants were and when they would be at my door. The plants themselves are lovely, larger than I'd hoped for and fresh and green. Ordering plants sight-unseen via the internet can be frustrating so I really appreciate the superlative experience I had with your fine company.

Placed my very first order with CG several weeks ago & was so impressed with the quality of Liriope I received that I placed another order for more of same variety Liriope + 24 potted Heuchera plants yesterday. Very happy that my 2nd order was also promptly processed & I received a shipping notice 1 day after I placed this order, too. That's awesome service & I'm sure I won't be disappointed when I receive my 2nd order :)

I love this company. I've order many ground covers over the years from them, and the plants always show up in great condition. I often receive extra bare root plants in the order. I had one complaint once re: lack of description of the one-gallon plants - they are shipped without soil and I thought this was mis-leading and should have been more prominently displayed on the website. When I called, they immediately updated their website, so their customer service folks are awesome! Very good prices - I have not seen any of their competitors beat them. Highly recommended!

I received 50 hosta halcyon and 25 royal standard bareroot plants. It's my first order from them and the delivery and care of the plants was exceptional. Some of the plants were so large that I was able to split them. The temperature here in Oxon Hill, MD. was to drop from 80 degrees down into the 40's that night with cool temps for about a week, so I called to ask what they recommended as far as to plant or hold, the gentleman stated that either way would be o.k. just keep the plants moist in a cool location if i was going to hold. So I planted all the plants that same evening and the plants are looking good on day 3.

I will definitely recommend and will order from CG again.

I would highly recommend buying from Classy Groundcovers, especially when you need to buy in multiples or in bulk. I bought 25 bareroot Hosta 'Royal Standard'; they were shipped very quickly and at the exact time I specified. When they arrived they were packaged very nicely, and the hostas' I received were very large two eyed divisions, some with three or four eyes, with large root systems. I can't wait to see their progression this summer! Again I would highly recommend Classy Groundcovers, and will definitely be buying from them again!
