Absolutely top-rate Nursery, service and personnel. Communication was prompt and clear. Plants were simply outstanding. This is clearly a company that will go out of its way to get you the plant you dream of. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This is a tremendous place to order succulents. I live in WV but had visited CA and been in the Santa Barbara area where his nursery is located. Although we could not arrange a visit that worked with our travel schedule we spoke with the owner by phone in Santa Barbara. When I returned home I spoke with him again and discussed what I was interested in - mainly container size succulents due to our cold winter climate. He is extremely knowledgeable and was most helpful with lots of suggestions about what to order in the fall and to hold off for some until the spring shipping time for my zone. His suggestions were great. He shipped immediately and the plants arrived within a couple of days. They were packed well and arrived in great shape. I would definitely order again and would highly recommend him.

As an indoor gardener from New Jersey, I find Pisonia umbellifera Variegata to be an elusive plant, and it is rarely offered through the mail-order trade. When I was fortunate enough to find this plant in the past, I always received small rooted cuttings that I could never coax into growth, despite my best efforts. Therefore, I persevered, and I was glad to find good-sized plants of Pisonia umbellifera on the Trio Nursery website. I immediately thought that the size of the plant was "too good to be true." Or, this rare plant must be out-of-stock. So, rather doubtful, I sent Trio Nursery an e-mail asking about availablity. Trio Nursery immediately responded with photos of their Pisonia plants, and the plants were definitely in stock. I placed an order for 2 Pisonia umbellifera Variegata from Trio Nursery, and I received the plants right away. The healthy & beautiful plants arrived in a matter of days and in perfect condition. These are established big plants that quickly bounced back and are sprouting new leaf growth. I thank Trio Nursery for helping me in my quest for the Holy Grail of all plants--Pisonia umbellifera Variegata. Trio Nursery excels on all counts: excellent customer service--excellent packing & shipping--and superb plants. I look forward to ordering from Trio Nursery again

I received a shipment of Pelargoniums from Trio Nursery in
an excellent condition and very healthy, good size, and each
plant had a very healthy root mass.
I am very pleased with the plants that I received as well as
Trio Nursery's customer service which communicates the order status, as well as a prompt response of questions about the availability of their plants.
I am planning to order from Trio Nursery again.

Ordered glossy abelia grandiflora 'Kaleidoscope'
I have been so pleased with how they do business. I am impressed with the variety of available selection, speed of delivery, and health of the plants.
On a google search for "kaleidoscope abelia grandiflora for sale" or "glossy kaleidoscope abelia for sale" they were the only mail order nursery I could find to offer a smaller than 3gall pot and for under $12 most are about $30-50. I'm so happy that I found this nursery. I will be ordering from them again in the future.

I purchased as a birthday present for my 87 year old Father, 3 Geranium plants through the website, with postage to Perth Australia, the plants arrived well packed although a little yellow due to no light for a few days. To be expected. The plants are now thriving with one about to flower.
Thank you so much for your prompt service and email replies.
I will purchase from your site again.

Ordered a night blooming jasmine plant. Plant arrived on time, and was in excellent condition. Directions were included as to how/when to plant..very easy to follow. As this was my very first purchase from Dave's, and it's only been a couple of weeks since my jasmine plant arrived, I will say I'm highly impressed and satisfied with the service and product so far. Just have to wait to see if my lack of a green thumb will still allow the plant to grow! I will be doing future business with Dave's Garden (Trio), and highly recommend them.

The ordering process was easy and my order was handled quickly. I got a personal email from someone at the company thanking me for my business. But most importantly my plants arrived well wrapped and in great shape even though I am in zone 10 - which is not exactly forgiving during the summer months. I ordered two kinds of geraniums (Renee's Blush/Shannon's Passion) which were all clearly labeled and all the plants have flowers on them. They also enclosed some information about the plants which I found very helpful.

I have purchased a French hybrid clivia miniata from Trio Nursery. I received the next day an email confirmation from Kip Omweg with the shipping tracking info. The clivia arrived yesterday. It is a healthy mature plant with 16 leaves and very strong roots. I am very pleased with my purchase and the service provided by Trio Nursery.

I wanted to give a Pride of Madeira to a friend as both a birthday gift and a reminder of our trip to San Francisco and the coast. She lives in Atlanta, GA. Internet searches were not providing a lot of information about the plant beyond it's origins and hardiness zones. I wanted to know if it could be grown--survive--in a colder more humid area. I looked for nurseries around San Francisco, most were large chain-type stores; this one seemed like it was a smaller, maybe family, operation. The gentleman I spoke with was not only delightful and willing to put up with what I know were silly questions, but he also was very helpful. I can't speak to the quality of the plant because I don't live in Georgia and I haven't seen it. And, since it only arrived last week, I don't know how well it will grow. (He suggested that it be container grown, cut-back and brought in to overwinter.) There's also the variable of how well my friend will manage it, which will be part of whether it succeeds or not. If I remember, I'll update this next year. Regardless, based on his attitude, customer service and advice--and that the plant shipped and tracked exactly as he said--I would highly recommend them.

Excellent...I called Kip to make an order for Aloe leaves at 8:30 am and by 1:30 pm same day I had the shipping confirmation and tracking # of my leaves. I am very excited and can't wait for their arrival. Kip is such a pleasant man to work with.

When I had some difficulty with placing an order on-line and called Kip Omweg to get help, he very graciously helped me solve the problem and said that he will expedite the order, although my difficulties could in no way be attributed to something he has done. I received what I ordered faster than I was expecting. I truly appreciate Kip's kindness and reliability and will surely buy from Trio Nursery again.

I live on the east coast, called them on the west coast and asked Kip if he would go to San Marcos growers and purchase and ship me a plant. This was the first time purchasing anything from them. I now have a big beautiful, rare fuchsia that some people are bidding up in the hundreds for on ebay for a rooted cutting. Communication was outstanding. Price was outstanding. Never thought I would own one. He has my business!

Trio is a great place to buy from. I just received 3 very healthy plants expertly packaged. I called Kip whose customer service is as good as any store I have ever done business with and ordered 3 more. A very positive experiance.

I just received 3 more plants from Trio. I really should say I received about 14 plants as there were so many canes I needed to plant them in bigger pots than I had anticipated. I know my two orders were small but they will be much bigger next year. Kip who is the owner even calls and lets you know the plants are on the way. This all for an order of $30. His merchandise, customer service, and packaging are second to none. Thank you Kip for the beautiful plants. I read so many negative comments about other companies and this nursery seems to be an undiscovered jewel. What a wonderful place to buy from.
