Very fast delivery. Healthy plants. Will be ordering more. I'm in southern CA where I can hardly find any nurseries out side the state that will send anything with soil attached! Probably because this company has "disease free" plants?

I ordered a banana plant from this nursery. I did not know and realize all the negative comments about this nursery until after I order it. I got scared and I wasn't sure if I was going to get my shipment but it did come in less than seven days very well packaged and the plant was very healthy and living very well now in our yard. The only concern I had was they didn't they provide you with a follow up email confirming your order. But overall are experience was positive.

I was worried about purchasing from them after reading a few of the negative reviews, but I am happy to say my experience with them was wonderful. I ordered three fig trees, and within a week (it took about 3 business days) they arrived, The plants were packaged well and were very healthy on arrival. They were a very good deal and were clearly labeled. The next time I need fig or banana plants, I will keep them in mind!

I ordered 6 plants (the cheapest was 8.99) and only read the negative reviews afterwards so I was really worried.
I was pleased when I received them within 5 business days. All of the plants were well packed and arrived with moist, healthy root balls and no leaf damage.
I planted them immediately and they are already putting out new leaves.
The shipping charge was more than reasonable, much better than most places I order from.
I would highly recommend Florida Hill Nursery.

Ordered 4 Musa Basjoo on Memorial Day, delivered today 6/5.
The plants look very fresh and healthy and no worse for the trip.

The only thing that I think FHN could do better is order tracking/status. We're all used to the instant gratification of constant order and shipping updates from Amazon and such. But it looks like FHN is doing it a little bit 'old school', and that's OK.

They had what I couldn't find anywhere else and at a good price, delivered in less than a week, and healthy.

I'd attach a photo if I could to show the packaging but the plants were packed well with no stress apparent.
I'll post the pic on their FB page.

The only reason I signed up for davesgarden was to post a positive to counter some of the negatives. I am not questioning the negatives, just offering up that my experience was a good one.

I ordered 5 banana plants of three different varieties. Then I thought to read reviews and had concerns. No concern needed! Very fast shipping, packed very well and so much larger than I expected! Wonderful price and very healthy. All instructions for planting are on your website and very easy to watch and understand . I thank you for your superb transaction and will highly recommend you.

I ordered a cutting. It arrived about a week later than they advertised, I got my plant in eight days, but it was shipped with two-day-shipping. The cutting was healthy, but came with no pot. It came in a box with the plant substrate in a plastic bag, the label of the plant's common name only on a piece of masking tape written in marker. No purchase order form, no other information, just the plant taped to the box with packing tape. The cutting was healthy, and that is all I care about. I did attempt to contact them by phone to ask about additional information as to what I should repot the plant in, and other additional care, and I have not received any response---it's been a few weeks now. All I can say is that the plant was healthy overall, which is most important, but the company appears less than professional. They seem like they are just some individuals doing this out of their own back yard, not like an extensive nursery. But, the plant was a low price, and that is what I was going for. You get what you pay for! I would recommend buying from them again definately, as I am all for supporting small mom&pop businesses---I think it's cool. If you're a beginner gardener, you will need to do your own research on the plants you order, because these people are not going to help you out with any additional information or advice. If you just want a inexpensive plant that's healthy and can figure the rest out on your own, this is a decent buy. They had a rare plant for a good price! Most definately worth the money, and I'm going to buy a few more from them, and I also recommended them to a friend.

I ordered a couple of passionfruit vines, a red-stemmed elephant ear, and a hardy banana. The shipment came VERY quickly...all the way from Florida to Oregon in two days. The plants were in beautiful shape and packaged well. They are very healthy and larger than I expected. Obviously, if you go to a nursery, you'll get larger plants in pots, but for mail-order starts, these were beautiful. I expect they will thrive as soon as I can get them in the dirt. I definitely recommend this nursery and I will be ordering again. They have all kinds of exotic plants that will do very well in my Zone 8b garden.

My husband and I sent our first order, a small one, as we were a bit tentative due to some of the negative comments on this vendor. The order arrived promptly, was packaged well, and the plants are healthy. They are as large as some that other nurseries offer for 2 and 3 times the price. Shipping was incredibly reasonable. For these reasons, we are not only extremely happy with our order but we plan on placing a much larger one next year.

I have received a number of different cannas and they all are doing very well. The Marmalade Skies is already flowering after about a month and looks great. The plugs that they send of the tissue cultured cannas are very well packaged and very easy to plant. They start multiplying very quickly. I put two Creamsicle in a 20" pot and the pot is more than half full of thick, healthy canes. It's nice to find another vendor who ships plants which sure look virus free and grow so quickly.
I will definately continue to buy from them.

On June 5th, 2014, riosamba added the following:

I have received over 50 cannas from Florida Hill Nursery.The first group I had to put in the garage as it was so cold at night and then outside in the morning. The plants were small but 19 out of 20 survived and are growing nicely as the weather warms up. I have received about 50 cannas altogether and am very pleased. The latest plants were bigger and stronger than the very first and all are growing nicely. I intend to add more and get my canna garden back to about 600 to 700 plants. I have found a great resource for healthy , tissue cultured plants with no virus. What a wonderful place to buy these great plants.

I ordered two Colocasia (Thai Giant). The description said they would be between 5" and 16". They arrived in good condition, but were TINY. The root ball was approximately 3 inches tall by about 1.5 inches in diameter and the plant above the root ball was no taller than 3 inches above the root ball. Maybe the stated size is including the root ball but I felt a bit deceived. Hopefully it won't matter and they'll grow quickly, but for $8.99 each, I would have expected a plant that was at least 6 - 12 inches above the root ball, especially given the stated size on their site. I can't say that I would order from them again. It's a shame I couldn't find any locally and they were my first choice to purchase from via mail order.

On March 26th, 2014, swbrains changed the rating from negative to positive and added the following:

I'm changing my rating to Positive. After I contacted them regarding the small Colocasia plants, they were very helpful and willing to make it right, which they did. They did explain that because it's so early in the season, the plants tend to be small but grow very quickly. This made sense and while I do think the web site should make this clear in the product description, they were very polite and sincerely wanted to resolve the issue to my satisfaction. Given this customer service experience, I would order from them again in the future.

I recently purchased two TR Hovey Papaya trees from Florida Hill Nursery via Ebay. Florida Hill offered the best price and a little bigger tree than the other Ebay sellers listing the same variety of papaya tree. The trees arrived yellowed, wilted and broken and I am hopeful they will survive. This was the worst case of packaging that I have experienced with a mail order nursery. The two trees were bound together by tape at the rootball. There was absolutely no packing material in the box and they were allowed to bounce and move around in a box much too big for the small trees. Consequently one tree is smaller now that a third was broken in transport. I am just amazed at how little care was used to ship these plants from Florida to Missouri. Additionally, there was no invoice, thank you for your business, growing instructions, etc. (what happened to customer service?). I do not recommend this nursery based on my experience.

I have changed my rating from negative to positive due to the customer service I received and the offer of a full refund. Florida Hill Nursery (FHN) suggested that I reorder in the Spring, which I will more than likely do as I really want a papaya tree and FHN stands behind their plants. I will suggest that packing material be added when my order is shipped. 😃

Hi everyone out there :)
I have been checking out the Garden Watchdog for years and was always too lazy to join the membership. But, I finally did so to give a honest and true opinion of the few companies I deal with mail order. Anyways, I have been dealing with Shawn and Angela at Florida Hill Nursery for a couple of years now and am here to tell everyone out there that they truly work hard to keep you happy and satisfied. They are great people with excellent customer service skills and will go out of their way to offer you the best of the best. This comment is NOT about one particular order, but over 50 or so orders. They dont argue you with about any issues you may have and often will ALWAYS send free plants if something goes wrong. Things are taken care of promptly, usually within minutes. Emails are usually returned almost as fast as I can type it and send it to them. They do not make and break promises or give you the run around like many of the other online nurseries. I only deal with a few others out there, like Four Winds Growers (citrus trees), Florida Hill Nursery, Wellsprings Gardens (other different tropical plants) because of many other bad experiences with other mail order nurseries. I wont name any of them, as it is not fair to them because I would never order from any of them again and it has been a long time since I did order, and hopefully they have fixed things for future customers. But, once is enough for me!!!! It is nice to have them as a reliable and easy to deal with mail order nursery. As a matter of fact, I dont even deal with any other company for many of their plants. They are always large, healthy and almost always thrive. But, as far as good points about Florida Hill Nursery and his company, this is what you can HONESTLY expect:

*Great prices

*Cheap shipping (I see the shipping labels and the costs of them, and I usually order 15 to 40 different plants and I wonder how he even makes any money.

*Fast shipping (usually within 2 to 3 days at the very most, and many times within 24 hours)

*Friendly customer service

*Quick response times on any email or phone call (usually within minutes)

*Most importantly, big, healthy and disease free plants

But, I am not going to keep on going on and on, and I just felt it necessary to share my experience with them so maybe they can gain even more satisfied customers, of which he deserves. Give him a try, and rest assured you will be happy and hopefully add another good review for him. Thanks Florida Hill Nursery if you ever do read this and am glad to call you a friend. Take care everyone out there and happy gardening!!!!

I'm quite pleased with my order so far. The plants came very carefully packed with minimal leaf damage. The shrubs and trees were small, as advertised, and the dragonfruit and passionfruit had reached more than a foot in height. All the plants continue to look healthy. The only plant I have any concern with is the dragon fruit which had a tiny split when it arrived. The split worsened over a day but so far the plant looks no worse for it. When contacted, the company was very prompt and personable with their replies and advice. I look forward to shopping from them again, especially if their 'out of stock' plants are made available again.

Just received my first order from Florida Hills and am very happy with the product. Their processing & shipping are both fast and the price is decent.

The plants came carefully packed & taped in place with not a single leaf broken. I ordered 4 various elephant ears which looked very healthy including roots. The banana had its newest leaf looking pale and yellow but that is probably due to it emerging in the box during shipment. The remaining 5 leaves were very healthy and green.

Very happy customer and will be doing further business with Florida Hill.

The plants I ordered were carefully and neatly packed. The plant roots look extremely healthy and remained damp through the shipping process. I am not usually a fan of mail ordering live plants but I could not find the item I was looking for anywhere in my area. The shipping was very fast and the plants I received exceeded my expectations. The canna lillies were enormous (about 18" tall). The black magic elephant ears seems to be a little more testy about being in a dark box for several days but the plants themselves are healthy and I imagine they will take off like crazy based upon the healthiness of the roots. This was my first order with Florida Hill so I only ordered a couple of items so I could see how things turned out. I was happy enough with my purchase to go back and order the rest of the items I wanted. I will definitely be using this company in the future. They have a very diverse selection of plants at very fair prices.

I recently got into bananas and ordered 4 from Florida Hills. Delivery took 3 or 4 days, and the plants were all healthy and surprisingly large (I was expecting them to just be 3" tall, but they had 8" p-stems and were over a foot tall overall). I planted them in my greenhouse about 4 1/2 weeks ago and they have more than doubled in size already, so I'm very pleased.

I just placed a 2nd order with them for a few more plants and will make a follow-up post when they arrive.

My 2nd order from Florida Hill arrived today. The US Postal Service mauled the package in transit, but the plants still managed to make it through in good shape. I ordered 3 banana plants and 1 pineapple plant. They were all medium-sized tc starter plants, which is what I wanted and was expecting. No signs of disease. Overall pretty good value.

I placed an order at the end of December. The plants arrived damaged. All of the stems on the banana plants were broken (and all the plants died within a few days) because they were shipped unsecured in a large box. I sent an email through their website and nearly two months later have not received a response. I spent over $30. Wish I had ordered through EBAY; at least then I could have gotten my money back.
