Keeping it Green Nursery has a great selection of plants. I have never had a problem with any of the plants growing. I have been doing business with them for years and they truly care about what they are doing and genuinely are enthusiastic about plants. A previous reviewer commented on how they didnít like how quickly the owners responded or whether or not things were in stock. This nursery is run by a family, and grow the plants themselves. If you want to do business with genuine people and receive high quality plants, then work with small businesses like this one. If you want quick and easy availability, then take the chance with large nurseries that donít care about what they sell.

I have had nothing but positive experiences in the past with KIG and have found the owner to be responsive. I have been a rare plant collector for 45 years and have done extensive business with a large number of mail order nurseries. When dealing with a "new" nursery, I make a point to contact them to establish the status of their website since some smaller nurseries struggle to keep them updated.

It is disappointing that certain individuals go out of their way to complain about a family-owned, rare plant nursery at a time when many such nurseries are closing and people are struggling to take care of life-threatening circumstances due to the pandemic. Let's have a little patience people!

I recently made my first order to Keeping It Green Nursery and I really feel compelled to express my opinion concerning their excellence. The entire order was truly superior. My main reason for dealing with this company is that they sell Petasites japonicus giganteus which is next-to-impossible to find in the nursery trade. The roots that they sent me were really high quality but I was even more impressed with the three bulbs of Cardiocrinum giganteum in my order. I have ordered this member of the lily family various times from different companies over the past 25 years but what they sold me was clearly superior to what I have received in recent years. They have many hard-to-find plants and they really need to advertise more. If it were not for my quest of Petasites I wouldn't even know that this nursery existed.

Really wanted to order from these folks as they seem to have some interesting items at reasonable prices; BUT they do not take credit cards. Back in the 20th century, I had some bad experiences with sending nurseries I had never dealt with before checks and then having problems getting what I ordered. You have no leverage at all. I'm sure these folks are aok (most are) but credit cards are just all around so helpful in this kind of transaction that's all I will use anymore.

Keeping It Green does now take credit cards and I have ordered from them and been pretty well satisfied. I also made a donation to their China expedition last year and recently received a box full of interesting plants in thanks.

I ordered a Sanguinaria canadensis from this nursery and I could not be more pleased with the plant received and how it has performed once planted in the ground. The plant was of very high quality, true to form, and healthy. The owner is highly knowledgeable of the plants he grows and provides excellent customer service and information about successfully growing his plants. And the owner insures that purchasers are completely satisfied with his plants. As a regular and experienced mail order purchaser, I would definitely purchase more plants from this nursery.

Good source of unusual plants. I ordered Epipactis gigantea and Sanguinaria canadensis rosea from Keeping It Green this spring. I was expecting small starter plants. What I received was way above my expectations. The Sanguinarias were large with several plants in each pot. The Epipactis were dormant rhizomes that I potted up. They actually flowered for me this year. I plan to order Oplopanax horridus when it is back in stock. I would not hesitate to order from Keeping It Green -- reasonably priced, good sized, unusual plants.

I have bought from this nursery a number of times and have always been satisfied with the plants. Since I actually live about 50 miles from the nursery, I have visited it and I have bought my plants in person either there or at several of the major plant sale venues in the Seattle area where the owner usually has a booth. This is the place to go for really unusual and exotic perennials from all over the world. I can't remember how I paid for my purchases, but the nursery is entirely on the up-and-up so I would not be concerned about paying by check rather than credit card.
