I am totally satisfied with my purchase of a Styrax Japonicus. It appears healthy, of substantial size and fullness and with a considerable rootmass contained in a three-gallon pot of rich soil material. A print-out of the planting care was included (the same that is in their website and linked-to in their email correspondence). I had the planting site prepared and simply soaked the plant in its pot for over an hour and a half (the minimum) and then planted it. I'm in Wilmington, NC and we've had alot of rain the past 10 days so the soil was moist; the sun was already blocked by trees in the late autumn afternoon so I felt it was safe to go-ahead and plant the tree in its permanent place without concern for heat-stress. The packing was fine, the UPS guy seemed to know which side was up. I ordered the tree late on a Tuesday, was emailed shortly after and informed that due to shipping time it would be shipped at beginning of following week to prevent sitting in warehouse over the weekend--understood. The correspondence continued at every step, payment, UPS pick-up and tracking number--package arrived as stated on Wed of following week at 2:00. Kudos to Dave's Garden for this incredible site that links you from queries about a specific plant to users with their experiences, to recommended vendors, to rating vendors and their users' comments; and finally to have the best 30 vendors as rated by users--awesome! I had ordered trees just once before, blindly searching for vendors and plants in google--this process now with Dave's has answered my prayers. I will not hesitate to use GardensOyvey again if they have a plant I want and can't find locally. The price of the tree was $48 which might seem a bit high, but I value the effort, knowledge, care etc. of the company to give me my money's worth--and I really wanted this tree!

Thanks, keep up the good work.

I recently ordered from Gardensoyvey for the first time and was completely satisfied with the quality plants I received.

Excellent communication was provided throughout the entire process. The plants arrived within a week and were well packed. I am happy to discover this new mail-order source for plants. I will continue to shop for plants at Gardensoyvey.

5 Starts and my highest recommendation for Gardensoyvey!

I have been a container gardener for many years. Finding good plants in Manhattan is challenging. Prices are typically high, plant quality is average, and transportation is not easy.

Enter Wolfgang and Diane at Gardensoyvey…

All I can say is wow! Wonderful people. The best plants. You can’t beat the selection and pricing. Plus, ordering online from their website is super convenient.

My experience has been nothing short of perfect. Great communication. Plants arrive in perfect condition; healthy and incredibly well-packaged. Shipping from TN to NYC was flawless.

I am a repeat customer and will continue to purchase my plants, vines, shrubs and small trees from Gardensoyvey. Happy gardening.

Being one of DGs top 30 sellers is not accidental. The distinction is well deserved. Diane and Wolfgang's love of plants is reflected throughout every step of a transaction with them. I would love to hop on a p/u and go to TN to get one of each plant they grow. Not feasible, so I'll just have to buy a couple every year til.....

Received my order of Pee Gee in fine condition. I order one plant but they shipped two!! Unfortunately, I managed to drown my plant with too much water. Tried to order another but they refused to sell me one, instead shipped another Pee Gee, free! Great service and great communication with Diane and Wolfgang. Strongly recommend GardensOyVey.

Very Healthy looking Little Henry. Packaging good. Placed in a longish box that did not squash the plant. I have had some from other mail order facilities squashed down in a box to small. Good root ball to. Not allot of potting soil spilled all over the inside of the box. Plants leaves fresh and green. Very few yellow leaves. Overall very happy with purchase so far. Will purchase from them again.

There are several clones of the rare Rohdea japonica out there. However, I was immediately attracted to the Rohdea japonica at Gardensoyvey. The plant seemed to have a more upright growth habit instead of the usual squat birdsnest type growth of other Rohdea japonicas. I immeditaely asked Gardensoyvey to send me a Rohdea japonica with the most upright growth. I got an order confirmation and was continually informed about the status of my order. They said that they would send me a great plant--and indeed they did! The plant was quite tall, full, with healthy green growth and strong roots. The plant came right away and was shipped to arrive in perfect condition. On my way out to work this morning, I stopped by my potted up Rohdea just to admire its elegance, and I'm so thankful to gardensoyvey for such a real beauty! I look forward to ordering from Gardensoyvey again, and I highly recommend them.

I order from a lot of different mail order nurseries and this has certainly been one of the best experiences I've had. I was looking for a specific huercherella to match seven I'd purchased locally before that garden center ran out. I figured with mail order, I'd have to put up with a much smaller plant -- if I could find it at all.

A Google search showed me a number of mailorder nurseries who listed my plant, but most just listed it... they didn't actually carry it! Gardensoyvey had it, though, and at a very reasonable price, so, after checking Garden Watchdog, I placed the order. The communication with Gardensoyvey! was fabulous. They confirmed my order, provided tracking information for shipping, then emailed me to say when the order would arrive and exactly what I should do once it did. In every part of this transaction, they went above and beyond what I expected. And the plants are gorgeous, nice and big and healthy. I will definitely order from them again in the future, because it was such a great experience that I'd like to repeat it, and because it appears they have terrific taste in plants! ;-)

They are one of your best Nurseries that you can trust, they say what they do.

I have ordered plants from them this Spring and they will do everything in their power to make sure you get them in in the shortest period of time and in top conduction. They make sure that they are pack very will so that there is no damage to your plants.

I will continue to do business with them.

In fact they made me a offer last Fall on the plants that I got this Spring and they keep to their word to the T.

When you contact them they will get back to you the same day. This means that you do not have to worry about anything.
Like some places you will wait for a few days or even a week to hear from them.

I would rate them on a scare from ONE to TEN a TEN being the very best. Believe me I never rate anyone a TEN unless they go above and beyond the call of service.

I bought the snow flurry camellia about 2 weeks ago. It was the biggest 2-gallon plant! Well-packaged, promptly shipped. The camellia was an excellent price (over 3 feet tall) and very leafy and bushy. The shipping charge was very reasonable for the size of the plant shipped.

This is my second season purchasing from Garden Soyvey and I look forward to more. The plants are always healthy when they arrive and I haven't lost one yet! Besides - they are very responsive to any sort of question you might have. I highly recommend them.

I purchased some Heuchera from GardensOyVey just before the rains hit Nashville last weekend (I planted them about 30 minutes before the rain started). After 16" of rain, one lasted about a week; one I think will survive and one has done great. I mentioned this to Wolfgang when I ordered more a few days ago, and they happily sent me a couple of replacements. I had no expectation for that to occur and I am very thankful for them!

My order, a Hearts-a-Bustin, was delivered quickly and in very good condition. Gardensoyvey courteously and effortlessly overcame an error I'd made in the shipping address. And I didn't have to get above a minimum order threshold to place an order for just this one plant. I'll order from them again.

I recently ordered two giant chinese silver grasses through the Gardens Oy Vey website; however, the grasses shipped from Dove Creek Gardens. When I received the grasses I was very surprised by how small they were. Both consisted of a single skinny (skinnier than a pencil) blade of grass about 18" tall. I am hoping that they will survive and grow quickly. As a side note, the plants I received directly from Gardens Oy Vey were much larger than expected and I was extremely pleased.

I ordered three hellebores and was immediately sent emails confirming my order and explaining what to expect with shipping. The plants arrived when anticipated, and were HUGE and very robust. (As a comparison, a couple of years ago I ordered three hellebores from a competitor, and although healthy they were tiny and cost twice as much). A bonus plant was included and is much appreciated. The process of buying plants online can be an adventure, sometimes challenging, but there was no part of this transaction that could be improved upon. My repeat business is based solely on the service that I receive and Gardens Oy Vey can expect to see me time and time again.

This company provides a personalized service like no other I have found on the web. It even exceeds in attention all of the staff of my local nursery with perhaps the exception of the owner who I have known for 20 years.. All of the e-mail responses make you feel that you are dealing with individuals (Wolfgamg and spouse) who really appreciate your business and it starts from the first order on, regardless of size. In the case of the unique calycanthus alba, I ordered late in the last seson, they took my order and out of concern for heat damage in shipment offered to keep my shrubs watered and growing until fall shipping season. The shrubs that arrived were far more valuable than when I ordered them having a full summer of growth and no-cost attention behind them. When one of three died, the folowing summer they offered immediately to replace it (in this fall) and would not accept my offer of paying the freight cost. I have just ordered a vine from them, again somthing hard to find. Outstanding!

I originally ordered a 1-gallon size of shade sedum. Because they were out of that size, they substituted 4 smaller-size plants. All were larger than the smaller containers the were sent in and all 4 were very healthy specimens. I have a feeling I got 1/4 to 1/3 more plants than the 1-gallon size would have offered. Very quick e-mail communications, and the plants arrived on the date they indicated. I'll be back!
