Ordered three clematis from Brushwood--Niobe and 2 Josephines. Josephine was the weekly sale, so the price was great. I am happy with everything about this order. The vines are a nice size. They arrived well-packed in good condition, ready to take off. They've been here about a week and all three have grown about 8 inches already.

Pleased with the first shipment. Ordered a second shipment from the company. Another one of Dave's "30" came through again. Can't thank Dave enough for this service.

Brushwood ships very healthy plants that are quite large for a 4" pot,and Dan has been helpful when I had questions. I've bought several clematis plants and climbing roses and was very happy with all of them. I'm in Ocala, FL.

Exceptional Company! I purchased a Zephirine Drouhin Rose and it is just beautiful. It was packaged so well, it just amazed me that a company actually cares about how their pants arrive.

It is ready to plant and, I believe this company works for and deserves it's high ratings. I will order more later on and I will recommend them to everyone I know.

One last thing, I scheduled delivery when I placed the order and they in fact shipped on time, and it was received right away. No worries if you order!

WOW. Jasmine Fiona's Sunrise and clematis Kiri Te Kenawa arrived exceptionally packaged and staked, with intact, moist root balls and vigorous new growth. What a contrast to the spindly, dried-out, sickly twigs I received from other online companies. Greenwood Nursery is my new standard.

This is my third order from Brushwood. which recently moved to Georgia from Pennsylvania. Dan did not miss a beat in the move and on very short notice provided me with top quality clematis... perhaps the best I have ever received! The packing is impeccable and the size of the plants very generous. Dan's response time would be nearly impossible to beat. I am not sure whether he is in your top 30, but he certainly should be!
Looking for a good variety of top quality vines with the very best service? This is the place! Look no further

It is late March here and I recently received my fourth order from this wonderful nursery. It was the same exceptional service with the best clematis ever.... the came with buds, are growing like weeds, and are already blooming. They simply cannot be beat and deserve their place in the top 30...

One year later... April 24, 2012

The move to Georgia certainly did not hurt... our newest arrivals are of the same top quality and in six weeks time are in full bloom. Looking for clematis? The quality and varieties offered by Brushwood are the very best for their very reasonable prices.

I ordered from Brushwood again and I think these plants were even more beautiful than last time. The vines were fully rooted into the pots without being bound and when I unpacked them they were fresh and bright with just enough moisture - not wet or rotting. One of the two best mail orders I've gotten this spring!

I recently purchased a red trumpet vine from Brushwood. This is a wonderful nursery. This was my first purchase from them. The plant was shipped very quickly and when I had requested it. It arrived Priority Mail. The plant is extremely healthy and a nice large size about 14 inches tall. They charge only $10 shipping for either one or 100 plants. The plant was carefully packed. They let me know when it was shipped via email. I am very happy.

I do NOT have the green thumb in the family. I've wanted roses for a long time, but can never get bare roots to grow. I ordered from Brushwood as a last ditch effort before conceding that roses aren't for me, really.
My order arrived as scheduled, two happy-looking, 12" plants. I planted the Zephirine Drouhin Roses in a part sun spot in my yard in early June, and they are doing great!!! Two months later they are over 3 feet tall and have tons of new growth.
Customer service at Brushwood was prompt and helpful in that someone answered a question I had about planting them very quickly by email.
If these rose vines continue to be this happy, I might finally have to learn how to prune! :-)

Healthy mid-sized plants (mostly clematis) that have grown well for me, blooming in their second year. Excellent selection, excellent packaging and an astonishingly low shipping cost. When the shipping, quantity discount, and a coupon were added, these robust plants were cost comparable with much smaller plants from other suppliers, but far better plants. I have ordered from Brushwood twice and will not hesitate to order from them again.

Local nurseries charge about double for a similar size plant. They had good communication as well, notifiying me of shipment. When I sent them a confirmation that my order arrived and in good condition, Dan responded promptly. A great operation.

A few weeks ago I ordered four clematis from Dan at Brushwood Nursery and they arrived yesterday as per my wishes. I could not be more thrilled! One is at least a foot tall and very bushy and the others are also very large, about 10". Dan was excellent with communication since I had added a note that we'd be on vacation for a week so he scheduled the delivery at a time that was good for me.

I am thoroughly delighted with this company!

Today, 3/31/11, I received my latest order of clematises from Brushwood and I'm very pleased with the plants, the excellent packing, the superb communication with Dan.

I refuse to play the juvenile games others play by comparing what they got from other companies. It isn't fair to anyone.

Dan is honest, reliable and trustworthy. He will always have my business.

I received my first order for clematis from Brushwood. They were very well packed, some with buds, and shipping was very fair for my order of 5 clematis. That said, I did receive much smaller clematis than I have gotten from SSV but her shipping is more. So I guess we will see how well these plants do and I will have more of a comparison - I also hope their warmer climate in GA won't impact how they act for me in VA.

I ordered three own root roses from this company. I was very unhappy with the delivery company a huge problem getting the roses to my house.....
The roses however were large well rooted plants would definitely recommend this company to anyone. I buy a lot of own root roses from a number of suppliers. most Brushwood has some of the larger plants I have received for the money, and even with the trauma they went through late delivery and rough treatment they were in good shape. I am pleased with them. Order with confidence. Great Plants.

Nicely packed, very healthy plants with good roots, not clipped to fit the box, but boxed to fit the plants.
Will be back for more!

On September 16th, 2008, mrs_colla changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:

After some time, the clematis both died. I waited a while to see if they would come back, as I planted them deep enough to recover from wilting if it would occur, but alas, the plants died.
I contacted Dan by email, and he asked me more information on how and where the plants were planted.

I sent him the info but haven't heard back from him.
I could have emailed him immediately, but since clematis dares to wilt and bounce back, I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. My loss.

I have bought clematis from another nursery with more flexibilty and will stick to him from now on.

I won't order again.

I came to Dave's Garden to search for a vendor that sold Zephirine Drouhin Climbing Rose. As a result I came upon this vendor. Much to my delight I found that he also sold Passion Flower vines. Both plants I wanted were out of stock so I put my name on the "notify when ready list." First sign of good customer service...within a few days my plants were back in stock...I bought two Zephirine and one Passiflora Blue Bouquet. All three plants arrived within one week and were perfect...the packing was done with such detail that the plants came out of their boxes in excellent shape. I planted both at the end of May...a little late for the rose, but I was far more optimistic about the Passiflora. Results? Blue Bouquet is is close to 20 feet tall and is FILLED with beautiful flowers. I'm in Zone 7 and will try to overwinter the plant outside...I've done this before and have had some luck (the plant is right next to my chimney and gets wonderful sun...I may try a cutting as well. For those of you on the East coast, you know that this has been the hottest summer in has been brutal. Both of my roses are planted between two established buddleia plants...that is probably why they have surived this heat. They did receive early morning sun and then partial secondary to the shade of their "nurse" plants. No flowers (I didn't expect any this year) however each plant has grown to well over 6 feet tall. I fully expect to have my first roses next year. Each rose bush is putting out new runners and the plants look very healthy. I would wholeheartedly recommend this vendor - the customer service was top notch and the plants were superb.
