Very satisfied first time customer! The three conifers that I ordered arrived picture perfect, and quite fast. They were well packaged. My only complaint would be the shipping rate, but that probably is not in the companys controll. I'm sure that I will order more from this company in the future. Thanks Evergreen Nursery.

I do wish that shipping costs would come down some too but, you are correct, that is more or less out of our control, lol. UPS ( or any other courier, for that matter ) keep inching up their rates.....with the fuel cost being their main "reason".
Thanks again for your business - it is truly appreciated.

This was a first time order and Darren emailed a few times to make sure that I wanted the order this early and got the plants I wanted. The plants arrived today in excellent condition and beautiful plants. I will be checking Evergreen first for any future orders.

I have been ordering from this company for 5 or 6 years now. My evergreens are always securely packed and in great condition upon arrival. The Carolina Sapphires I received from them this week were about a foot taller than expected, and the most beautiful silver-blue.
So far I have bought Green Giants, Crape myrtles, and 15 cypress. They are all thriving! Awesome company.

Very professional and yet personal service. Requested that my order be received prior to Christmas so we could plant prior to departing on trip-I wasn't optimistic that this could happen- but they did! The order was shipped promptly and packaged beautifully! Love this company and will use them for future orders.

Evergreen Nursery has a wonderful selection of plants -- and not just evergreens, although they have plenty of those! They also carry roses and other deciduous shrubs, ornamental grasses, and daylilies.

The prices are very reasonable, and the website is easy to navigate and full of helpful information and interesting descriptions. This is a family-owned nursery. The owners care a lot about their business, paying particular attention to customer satisfaction. E-mails are answered quickly and politely. I highly recommend this company.

I am not exactly sure what "evergreensucks" is referring to in their posting here, as we have not shipped ANY product at all to a town called Somerset ( in any state ) since May of this year.......and that particular customer has ordered multiple times since ( Somerset, KY ).

Not sure if this is a case of mistaken identity, and meant to be directed towards a different Evergreen Nursery, but we have received absolutely no complaints or feedback via e-mail, phone, or otherwise from this claimed to be customer.....or any other customer in several months.

If a customer is ever unhappy with any product that we were to ship, we always do the absolute utmost to resolve the problem, and make sure that the customer is happy with their shopping experience with our nursery.

On Dec 12, 2011 10:58 AM, Evergreen Nursery added:

As of today 12/12/2011, we have received no reply from this member as to just what they claim to have ordered, or an invoice number, or quantity ordered.........despite our sending them a d-mail inquiry for additional information regarding this supposed transaction.

DG administrators have also attempted to contact the member attempt to validate any information regarding this customer, and any transaction with our nursery. No response to their inquiries either.

This particular member / post obviously is bogus & completely fabricated."

Over the years, I have bought plants from nearly every online vendor out there---well a lot of them, and I can say that you will always be happy with these growers. I read the other statements from customers, and I must say that I have had the same wonderful experiences with Evergreen Nursery---the plants are healthy--and much bigger then I expect (because everyone else's are that much smaller!!)

I've placed two orders with Evergreen Nursery this Spring, both for 2-3 Crape Myrtles. The orders were shipped immediately, and arrived in a timely fashion. The plants were healthy yet rootbound, and were smaller than the listed size on their website. However, the prices are so reasonable there is little reason to get Crape Myrtles anywhere else. The plants from the 1st order are just starting to grow (my area had a cool, wet Spring), and I am not sure if any of the specimens will bloom later in the Summer. Time will tell...

Have ordered from Evergreen for several years now. I could not be happier with the quality of the plants (they are always larger than I expected and in perfect health), shipping (love how the plants are removed from pots, excess soil removed, and wrapped in plastic - they transplant beautifully and get going way fast and since they are lighter shipping prices are low), service, and prices. Web site is unequaled, easy to navigate, really great info (way more and better than is usually supplied), and any questions one may have are answered promptly by someone with plenty of experience, so you don't have to ask again.

Evergreen's exceptional quality of size 1 and 2 plants and prices gives me the ability to try many different plants that are not even available here where I live in the dry West (Utah) to see how they grow here. I have always been delighted!

I could not speak more highly of Evergreen or recommend them more highly!!!

This company had something I hadn't found many other places, a "White Chocolate" crape myrtle. It was shipped almost immediately after I ordered it, and in excellent condition. It was the size I expected. The packaging method was exceptional. The only way I can think of that it could be destroyed would be to put it in front of a steamroller! This company is definitely one to remember for repeat business.

Wow. What to say? Darren, the owner of Evergreen, is awesome. Very quick to answer emails and very friendly and knowledgeable to boot. I ordered 7 shrubs a couple of months ago, with Mid April shipping. My order arrived the other day and I was really impressed with the packing method which had the shrubs attached to the box itself with wire ties so no matter which position the box was in, the shrubs couldn't shift. The plants seem to be healthy and ready to go, with one possible exception (too soon to tell), but with this companies 60 day guarantee, I feel confident that if this shrub fails (or any of them), Darren will take care of me. We will be ordering again and again and again...
I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for great shrubs at great prices.

Thanks Darren!

I bought several hemlock, mugho pines, and groundcover conifers. They came quickly, were nicely packed, and well-rooted, with the soil attached, not bare root like other mail order evergreens. The hemlocks were already 3' tall, and the groundcover conifers were also quite large. The mugho pines were surprisingly thin, they each look like a pine tree branch that's been rooted. I've never seen such a young mugho, but the root system is dense and I am very happy with the prices. I would highly recommend this company.

I purchased 6 Thuja Green Giant (size 2). The plants were shipped in time and arrived in good condition. They looked healthy although I was a little dissapointed by the size of the trees (between 14-18 inches) and the trunck (was small and fragile) but it is just my personal opinion (I bought the same trees but much bigger, more beautiful and cheaper from ebay so shop around and look at the feedback or reviews). The trees look very healthy and have normal roots for their size. I hope they will do fine and I will update the review in Fall.

EvergreenPlantNursery owned by Darren Valentine has to be the absolute BEST of any nursery I have ever dealt with.

The cost of plants are very reasonable. I give this nursery an all around A plus.

This morning eight Chamaecyparis evergreens of 4 different varieties arrived. They were very well packed and undamaged during shipping. All are green, healthy and the exact size stated on the website. For the price these are a great value. I wish I had found this site earlier because much of their stock is now sold out. I'll remember this company and get an earlier start next spring.

On March 13, 2009 I purchased 38 evergreen plants and had them shipped to me in NJ. This was new for me and I knew nothing about the company. The website is outstanding, and after emailing the company I was very comfortable. They emailed me every time I had a question and were most helpful. The plants arrived in two days according to their schedule by UPS. The plants were beautifully packed each separately in a plastic bag with excellent root balls. The plants looked healthy and strong. The directions for care and planting were provided with the plants and are extremely detailed. Prices were excellent also. I will always use this company for future purchases. AK

I ordered 10 nandina domestica plants on a Monday and received them in Virginia by Thursday of the same week. This is the fastest I have ever received plants through the mail.

I ordered 4 nandina domestica from another vendor this past spring. The other vendor was sold out this fall, so I used Evergreen Nursery for the first time. Evergreen Nursery sent plants that were cheaper, larger, and healthier. Usually this late in the season, mail order plants tend to look like "leftovers." I was pleasantly suprised to get first rate plants after ordering in mid-November. I've already place another order.

I am extremely happy with the plants I just received from Evergreen Nursery. The plants were exceptionally well packed (and it was so very nice not to get a box full of styrofoam). The plants are very healthy and very big for the price. IN the past, the plants I'd get from other nurseries for the same price would be very small and puny- these are big, well branched, stocky plants. I will DEFINITELY purchase from Evergreen again and again.

I received my first shipment from Evergreen Nursery a few days ago. I opened the package that night, and set the trees out, but didn't have time to plant that night. The plants were very nice quality, and a very decent size. I was able to pot them up the next afternoon and get them into my nursery, and was thrilled with the root balls on the trees. I will definitely be ordering from this company again, and will recommend them to people as well. I can't wait to get the trees into the ground next spring.

We bought a new home in Phoenix, AZ and had the task of landscaping in June and July 2007. The prices of the Naches Crape Myrtle were so attractive and reasonable, I decided to call Evergreen Nursery and ask them about planting in 114 degree heat. They were very helpful and advised me to go for it and I ordered 3. About 1 week later my order arrived safely and very well packed. The plants were only about 1 foot tall and I said to myself there is no way they would survive this intense heat. Anyway they were planted and struggled that first summer.. Now almost 1 year later they are nearly 3 ft tall and thriving and one of the plants is about ready to blossom. I will order from Evergreen Nursery again... Very positive experience......

I am a first time user of online ordering and I was a little hesitant. But the prices at Evergreen Nursery were excelent and I decided to order 5 Photinia online. Their site is user friendly and the everything went fine. I received the plants on schedule and the packing was excellent. The plants arrived in excellent physical condition, but I noticed leaf spot on every plant. I took pictures of some of the leaves and sent them as an attachment to an email to the nursery and ask if they could (a) verify that it was a fungus and, if so, (b) advise me how I should treat the plants. I didn't get an response. A few days later I called, got a voice machine and left a message describing the problem and asked if they would give me a call. No one called. Consequently, I consulted with a local nursery, got the fungicide I needed and treated the plants. Evergreen may be an excellent nursery, but their follow-up to orders leaves something to be desired.

On May 14th I received a very polite email with an apology for the delayed response, which was due to a "family emergency". They provided advice for treating the plants and offered me a partial refund for any inconvenience they might have caused. Because I did receive a helpful reply, and the delay is understandable, I have changed my rating from a negative to a positive.
