    I was reluctant to order a gardenia through mail order, even though I had ordered other plants from other nurseries before. But a quick search for a gardenia that I craved, because I couldn’t find one locally, led me to Plants by Mail. It arrived in great shape, looking healthy and vigorous. Today I have the first bloom, and I hope one of many more. I plan to keep it in dappled sun on our porch and move it into my sunroom in the winter. The fragrance is delectable!

    The gardenias arrived looking healthy with shiny leaves. They arrived in bloom. Now just hoping they survive the brutal Florida heat through the summer.

    Never rec’d, card charged. I had my $100 order delivered to a funeral home in El Paso, TX as my family member that passed loved gardenias & I wanted her children to have these to plant as a memorial to her. Funeral home says they never got the shipment, plantbymail says the shipment was delivered per their tracking #. I’ve called the funeral home several times & had family in that area go up there, no one has had a delivery from this company & since their tracking # says delivered, I just pad $100 for “someone” (not my intended with their name on it) to enjoy these beautiful plants that I can’t speak to their condition upon arrival…..

    Very happy with my order. Plants were healthy on arrival and much larger than I expected which was wonderful and will jump start are efforts to create a scented hedge with the August Beauty Gardenia.

    The plant arrived in a sturdy box – no damage to the plant. The plant was healthy, the leaves were shiny and I’m very satisfied.

    Plant looked healthy, unfortunately no blooms. This was sent to my 91 y/o mother as Gardenias are her favorite flower. She is concerned may not live long enough to see it bloom..

    I am sorry the only complaint I have is they didn’t plant themselves.
    I was definitely happy with the plants but more so on how well they were packed.
    All plant was healthy and well rooted.
    Nothing but a great review from me.
    Great job.
    I will be ordering more plants from this company

    We received this little beauty late in the year. September/October 2020, we’ve put it in the ground where it receives lots of wonderful sun and there is a TON of new growth on our plant today, November 4, 2020. I can’t wait to get blooms next year! The plant arrived very healthy and robust, shipping was in the blink of an eye and packed to perfection. Can’t wait to start shopping next year! Thank you Plants By Mail, you do a superb job! I won’t hesitate to buy stuff because I know it will be the cream of the crop! At at such reasonable prices. What’s not to LOVE!!!!

  18. Rick Williams (verified owner)

    Packaging was to perfection, along with the plants. Love them!

    The plants arrived shortly after they were
    ordered, the Post Office must think the
    arrow on the side of the box (upright) was for a decoration. Plants doing well.

  20. Stefanie (verified owner)

    Plants arrived in good condition and we’re comparable in size. I’ve planted them and for some reason 2 are not doing well while the other 2 are doing great. All 4 were planted in the same conditions so I’m not sure why 2 are wilting and look like they won’t survive with brown and yellow leaves and droopy overall. Watering is consistent between all 4 plants so again, am puzzled by these 2. Hoping for the best as they were hard to find and had significant time and money investment.

    The plant arrived healthy and strong and looks beautiful. An amazing gift for a true lover of plants.
