I recently asked for a gift card for this company from my wife for my birthday. They had a lot of nice things on their website. When I went to spend it though I noticed that they do not allow you to spend gift codes on shipping---only merchandise, and their shipping is NOT cheap. So I have to pay to ship my own present. So please be wary-- better to get cash and spend it than it is to be limited by these unfortunately over-restrictive policies. Will come back and review the product once I receive it.

On July 21st, 2011, survivorman changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

Indeed the company has now fixed this issue--I can now wholeheartedly recommend gift cards from them. Thanks for making it right!

Happy Birthday Survivorman! The shopping cart software we have used in the past did not allow gift certificates to be used for shipping cost; however we have recently upgraded to a newer version which does allow it (we failed to turn on the new option so that shipping could be included). After your call this morning and now your comment here, we started digging into this issue and discovered we now are able to allow it to be used against shipping charges as well. Please accept my apology for the confusion with your order. Give us a call back if there is a way we can make this right with you. Joe"

June 26 I ordered 3 Tarragon, 1 Rosemary and 1 Stevia plants. They arrived a few days later in fantastic condition and bigger than I expected. I am very impressed with the quality of their plants and their fantastic service. I will certainly use them again!

Back in April of 2011, I decided that I wanted to have a few herbs and some coleus plants in my garden... Actually I should say it's really a small patio, only about 64 square feet or so... which the plants have to share with patio furniture.

Anyhow, I was able to obtain suitable herbs locally... but nobody in my town who works where plants are sold seems to even know what Coleus is, let alone had any for sale. I went searching on the internet and found Garden Harvest Supply, where I discovered an abundance of varieties of Coleus.

After studying my options, I chose Dark Chocolate, Dark Star, and Cracklin Rosie varieties of Coleus. All are said to be 15 inches or smaller in height... well surprise, surprise, surprise! They get much larger than that. Mine are currently about 24 inches in height (or a little over) and still growing. No, I'm not at all disappointed as much as astounded! I thought I was getting dwarf varieties, which is what I had intended to get due to the very limited growing area available to me.

Do I blame this type of growth on:
1. The humidity? - which these Coleus seem to love.
2. The loving care which my beloved spouse showers on the plants?
3. The Miracle Grow potting soil? - which is about all we can find locally.
4. All of the above?

Ironically, I was supposed to be the gardener in this household because my husband works full time for wages... but he does more in the garden than I do.

Later, I also bought two Apple Mint and two Spearmint plants. They are doing what mint does - attempting to be invasive. I don't mind, because that invasive tendency gives me an excuse to harvest some fresh mint, which I like in teas and salads... and since everything in my garden has to be planted in pots of one kind or another, the mint can't go too far. In fact, the Apple Mint must be as happy as a plant can be. It's attempting to bloom. I harvested the blossoms this morning.

After moving to MO a couple years ago from 45 years in So. CA to a house which had a severely neglected landscape... what a challenge....
One of the additions has been a good size "mound" in the front yard. We planted a Riverbirch and a miniature weeping evergreen tree, a few dwarf native grasses and added several purple Echinacea. Looking very pretty but my husband made the comment that it needed more color and I agreed. I want to stay with a more natural look and of course hardy perennials are a must, so I began browsing for some of the yellow/orange/red hue Echinaceas. Many of the "designer" colors I found were over the top in price, until I stumbled on Garden Harvest Supply. Was thrilled with the offerings and equally pleased with the prices. Decided to order a variety of new colors from GHS.
I called them to check on availability and if they could be planted this far into the hot summer. Lady was very pleasant and helpful, letting me know that yes, I could plant the now but was going to make sure they were well watered till they became established. So I placed an order for nine. They arrived quickly and were packed exceedingly well, good sign, especially in this weather. They were in very deep 3" pots, well established with several buds ready to bloom. Since dragging hoses to the mound is a bit of a chore for this old gal, I chose to replant them in 5" deep pots, and set them in our little greenhouse till fall. I will pop them in when the weather is less extreme. Early enough for them to establish before winter comes, which is what I successfully did with our purple ones last fall.
I highly recommend GHS for quality and service!! Will be back for other items on my "want" list!!

I have been gardening for over 50 years and my plants ordered from Garden Harvest came in terrific shape and condition and were packaged very well. I have ordered from a lot of different companies as well as going to lots of nurseries and Garden Harvest will definitely be one at the top of my list. They had some varieties of certain plants that I collect that I have not seen elsewhere. So I was very happy. I have passed your name on to a couple of friends in different garden clubs. Thanks for the terrific service.

I just received my first shipment of plants from Garden Harvest Supply. All plants arrived healthy with minimal damage. They were packed really well, in a snappable plastic cases which keep the plants pretty much intact the whole shipment. They also have the most reasonable prices on heucheras and heucherellas. I am very pleased with my purchase. I am planning to make more purchases from them in the future.

I wanted to add asparagus to my vegetable garden and, after searching several vendors' websites, selected I ordered 20 plants each of 2 varieties with an understanding that the plants would be shipped to me in early May. I received the asparagus crowns and found them to be in good shape. Following the accompanying instructions, I planted the crowns. The germination took between 2 and 4 weeks, but ultimately resulted in over 25 plants emerging from the soil. The plants are healthy and I am completely satisfied. I will do business with this company again in the future.

I purchased 3 types of plants-- Cardinal lobelia, French tarragon (which I could not find anywhere in nurseries in my area and which one does not start from seed), and a foxglove. All arrived very quickly, in great shape. The packing was very impressively done! I will definitely buy from this company again.

I just received my first order from Garden Harvest Supply and need to say, I am very impressed with their prices and packing. I ordered a variegated phlox and 4 dwarf daylilies. I placed the order on a Saturday evening and it arrived in my mailbox on the following Wednesday. Even though the box was a little beat-up, the plants inside were packed so well, everything was in good order. I think I have found my new best source for live plants. Thank you, Garden Harvest Supply!!

With the plants, they furnished instructions and Discount Code.
We had some sunny dry days in May, and some of plants
wilted. With my points and extra 5%, the replacement plants
didn't cost that much.

This company strives to please their customers. I've never encounter a company who worked as hard as Garden Harvest Supply to make sure that I'm happy with my purchase despite the fact that I only made a small purchase.
I ordered several Heuchera plants from them. One of them was unavailable this season and they let me substitute while immediately shipped the rest of the order. The representative, Tina, was extremely patient and spent quite a bit of time to educate me on successful growing of the Heuchera. All plants arrived very healthy. The packaging is the best I've ever seen in plant shipping. Highly recommend them.

FANTASTIC! I ordered 4 green bean plants and 2 corn plants. Received immediate confirmation and received the plants just several days later. The plants arrived in safe condition and were all HUGE! Soil was moist. Well packaged. I wish I had discovered this company first before using others as they just did not measure up to this company. I will be using them from now on for my veggie and flower plants. Great experience! A satisfied customer from Camden, SC.

I received the wrong product at first. I emailed them with the problem and they emailed me back and said they would send the right thing and for me to keep the wrong item, and use it if I needed it. I didn't receive the other item so I emailed once more and I got an email back telling me how sorry they were for the mistake and my product was on it's way. It arrived very quickly after that. You have to remember, you are dealing with human beings, they make mistakes sometimes. I make my fair share, plus a few of other peoples shares. The question you have to ask is, "Was the problem corrected?" In my case, yes it was. Pleasure doing business and I would recommend your company to my friends and associates. Thank you.

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.

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.

I have to tell you Dave's Garden readers that the plants appear to be very healthy; were perfectly packed; arrived in excellent condition.

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.

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.
