This was my first purchase from this company and couldn't be more pleased with my fuchsia plants I ordered. They were packaged better than any other plants I have bought and had shipped. The fuchsias were big and healthy, nothing broke, no bugs or diseases.
I will order from this company again. Also prices and shipping were reasonable.

Wow! I orderd 6 agastaches and a butterfly bush. My first order with this company. I am very pleased with the plants I received.
These plants are well rooted and larger than I expected.
I am going to order some kniphofias today.
I would recommend this company to anyone looking for nice plants at very reasonable cost.
Shipping was fast and the plants were well packaged. This has been a positive experience for me. I got some great plants at a price that was more than fair.

Wonderful first experience with Garden Harvest Supply. I ordered 6 different butterfly bushes. They were huge and well rooted. They were packed extremely well. I had bought some from Michigan Bulb a few years back. They were no where near the quality that I just got from Garden Harvest Supply and they cost a lot more.

I placed an order for some tomatoes, peppers, squash and zucchini. They arrived quickly with awesome packaging- the plants were healthy and in great condition. They're doing really well in the garden so far.

I spoke with their Customer Service department regarding shipping dates, and they were incredibly helpful. Thank you, Garden Harvest Supply!

I placed an initial order in February of this year, added another order 2 weeks ago. Called the company, requested to combine orders due to shipment not sent out yet for my zone. They accommodated and refunded some of the shipping cost. They sent the plants out immediately at my request. The box arrived by UPS yesterday with 36 plants inside. They were all alive and doing very well. Today, I just finished planting all the items. They seem very healthy and happy. I am very pleased with my "first-time" order with Garden Harvest Supply. I would definitely consider them for next year.

I placed an order on 4/3 for 4 cajun hibiscus plants and their website listed my order as "processed". I kept checking my order and it never showed as being shipped even as I received hibiscus plants I ordered from other places. I called early last week and the person from the company said that it would be shipped last week. That never happened. I emailed yesterday to find out what what was going on. I received emails today stating that it was not shipped because one of the items I ordered 5 weeks ago, a Black Dragon hibiscus, was out of stock because of a supposed crop failure. What this had to do with the rest of my order I do not know but I was never informed of this and had to go out of my way to find out what happened to get the rest of my order shipped.

flower36child I am very sorry to hear about this problem. I have just spoken with everyone who is involved with your order. Each order is "processed" as soon as it is placed, however it does not ship until the particular week for your state. When you called last week, we did not pay attention to the individual items on your order and just assumed everything was shipping, since NJ shipped last week. Please allow me to apologize for this error on our part, there is no excuse for this oversight. The Black Dragon did have a crop failure, I apologize we did not follow through with you when we were informed. It appears you gave us the go ahead to ship the rest of your order, we will get it right out. I would appreciate a follow up once our order arrives. Again, I am very sorry we have failed in giving you great customer service. Joe"

This was my first order with GHS and so far it's been a great experience. I ordered online after finding them via a google search for tomato plants. Wanted to be able to buy single plants and most of the major companies require a purchase of 3 plants. While looking at GHS website, I found that they had foodstuffs as well as plants. Being a "foodie" I decided to try a few things. Asked that the plants be shipped to arrive before we leave for a vacation in May and, if possible, the other things shipped immediately. Few days later, there was a perfectly packed carton at my front door. The raw milk cheddar is excellent. I'll let you know how the rest of the order works out.


On May 9th, 2011, indianaguy added the following:

5-9-2011 The rest of my order - tomato plants - arrived via USPS Priority mail today. I have to tell you Dave's Garden readers that the plants appear to be very healthy; were perfectly packed; arrived in excellent condition. I've ordered tomato plants from several well known mail order companies in the past and have never had plants arrive in such good condition. I have my Earth Boxes all ready and will plant tomorrow.

I ordered almost 175 dollars of plants from this company. When I received my plants after four days in the mail, most of the tomato plants were dead, as well as one of my cucumber plants. The pepper plants were in good shape.

Overall, the plants were very small and not well watered. If I would have known that for these prices I would be paying for such small, unsubstantiated plants I would have gone to my local Lowes store or farmers' market. The advantages for going local--receiving larger, healthy plants for the same price or lower that you can choose on your own--far outweigh hoping that someone will give you a plant that looks like an image you see on the web.

I have learned my lesson, and will never buy from this website again. Too bad I'm out almost 200 dollars (this includes shipping).

I had not ever heard of this company. but I found them on a search for some Wave petunias, I live in MA and they were not in the stores yet. I came across a very unique Wave petunia, and went searching for it a Easy Wave Black Velvet petunia, wow what a gorgeous plant, and the way they package them is incredible, I will always shop with this company from now on. The prices were the best at least $2.00 less than all other places I checked, I ordered 3 each Black Velvet, a gorgeous Pinstripe, double wave White and easy wave blue, I have today planted them all. I left them outside to settle, to make sure our cool Massachusetts nights were not too cool, but we are having odd warm weather and they are doing just fine. Thank you I love them and will be back.

For example: an order for four corn plants turned out to be twelve, as each pot actually contained three very healthy little plants. Love it! ..I will definitely be ordering from them many times in the future.

The prices were so reasonable that my sister passed on ordering anything, saying she would see what I got. So I placed a trial order for 5 plants, a hose nozzle and organic seeds . The nozzle and seeds arrived in a couple days, a separate shipment at no extra cost. The plants arrived a week later and in good shape. Sure, they were small, but so healthy they doubled in size every few days. When my sister saw the plants, she wanted some too. I wanted more plants and another nozzle. Unfortunately, my second order arrived in a badly damaged box. Soil was spilled and every plant was disturbed. I repotted the plants hoping to salvage some. But the plants were so healthy that the next morning all but two looked fine. Stefni at Garden Harvest Supply immediately ordered relacement plants, and within a few days we received two wonderful replacements. My sister is delighted with the plants I ordered for her and mine are thriving in the garden. Based on above, we have recommended this company to our friends.

I would like to say negative but the pepper plants did arrive in descent shape. My neutral grade is that I live in Conn. ( zone 6 ) and the night temps are still in the 40's and maybe a 50 now and then. Peppers do not grow in these temps plus they become stunted and sickley if planted out. Tomatoes are not even in the gardens yet never mind peppers. I will have to keep them indoors, under lights, until at least Memorial Day which is over 3 weeks away. I think Garden Harvest Supply should have known what the weather conditions are before they ship or ask for a tenative shipping date from the customer upon order. That's it

Dear tommyfemc: First of all, let me say thanks for your order, it is appreciated! I am sorry you received your order earlier than you wanted. Unfortunately there is no way we could monitor the conditions in all of the states we ship to. We determine our ship dates according to the last frost dates as assessed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. In past years we have shipped to Connecticut in the 2nd week of May; however we had a lot of customers from your state asking for earlier ship times, they thought we were waiting too long, so we moved it up 1 week. At the end of each season we reevaluated our ship dates, we will certainly keep your suggestion in mind. Now for your plants, 30 days is way too long for you to try and keep them alive inside. We would be glad to have them picked up and returned to us. We will then reship on a date you tell us (keep in mind that you do have the option during checkout to choose an earlier or later date than the one that is showing on our ship dates page), is this an acceptable solution for your order? You may also call our office toll-free at 888- 907-4769 to discuss this further. Sincerely, Joe"

This was the very first time I had dealt with a on-line garden supply house and I wound up being helped by a wonderful service representative by the name of Tina M. She kept me advised of times and shipping dates. She helped in explaining how the live plants were shipped. Advised me on shipping costs and delivery times. In fact she will be the main reason I will return for future purchases from Garden Harvest Supply. Plus, the plants arrived ahead of schedule and ready to put into the ground. Better than any local garden supply business of big box store.

The company did not have Thai Basil that I ordered so they substituted a different variety of Basil and emailed me that they were making the substitution. I explained that I really wanted Thai Basil and they offered to notify me when it was in stock. They notified me that it was in stock within 2 days and asked if I still wanted it. I said I did. Very polite and responsive. The large number of herbs that I ordered arrived in very good condition.

I ordered 5 plants from this company for the first time. I will never buy from this company again, nor will I ever reccomend them to any of my friends. The box was 11"x 13" x 5" too small for the order, all 3 of my tomato plants are dead as a door nail.No dirt left in the pots. None of the markers were still with the pots. Even if they were alive I would have no idea which tomato was which. If I had seen the size of those teeny tiny plants I would not have bought them. The 2 pepper plants are also very small. The dirt was almost all gone in these pots also but the plants are still alive. They are in very bad shape and if transplanted now they will surely die. The only positive experience I have had was that my order arrived when stated. Although I think this credit should go to UPS.

One daylily is out of stock and one hibiscus is back ordered. They communicate well by e-mail. A substitute for the daylily was offered. Some plants were packed in special black plastic "open coffins" which protect them during transit. Will order again, especially if they expand their live plant offerings.

I've shopped with GHS several times in the last two years and have had nothing but great experiences each time. Last year I bought some heirloom tomato and zucchini starts late in the season. The plants always arrived in great condition and despite the late start, I got great yields from all the plants, especially the Cherokee Purple and Brandywine. I've also purchased organic fertilizers and trellis netting from them. This year I had to cancel a part of my order which they did cheerfuly. I've always had prompt responses from them. Unlike some other mail order stores, they also don't bombard you with junk emails. I strongly recommend GHS for both plants and general garden supplies.

I definitely will purchase from again, because the plants arrived carefully packed (yet relatively easy to unpack and I loved that they often used moss as "mulch" to keep the dirt from falling out), extremely healthy and in great shape. I bought over 12 plants from them, and everyone of them was healthy, growing, doing great.

This was my first order with Dave's Garden and it arrived within days, but upon opening my package it was apparent I'd received the wrong color of coco fiber matting. I called and the problem was immediately corrected with the right color being sent out to me. I was told I didn't need to send it back or have to do an RMA to get my order corrected. Thank you so much!

On behalf of my church (which is whom I placed the order for) I'd like to thank you again for the donation of the extra coco fiber matting!! It will be used underneath a weeping myrtle tree to cut down on the mowing underneath the hanging branches! Bless you!

The green coco fiber matting looks very good placed around my church's guy wires going to our 3 lighted crosses (Holy Communion Chapel, Danville, IL). I hope that it will keep the weeds/grass from growing up around the base of the guy wires and give it a nice manicured and finished look plus cut down on trimming around each one. Thank you again!!

For the past four years I have purchased all my plants on-line. I have dealt with dozens of nurseries across the country. I have a pretty good idea of what to expect in regard to the price. In other words you usually get what you pay for.
Therefore I was stunned when I received my first purchase from Garden Harvest Supply.
The prices were so low I ordered a few extra thinking some plants would never make it.
What a surprised! I received 'large' 'healthy" plants that were ready to take off: and they have.
The prices were at least 1/3 of the price I would expect to pay somewhere else.
I passed this nursery over at first. Now it will be my first choice. These plants are outstanding.
When you see what you want, order fast, the supply is limited on many plants.
