Top Ranked Online Nurseries
From first to worst, our complete rankings are below. Nurseries are ramping up inventory and selections as they prepare for Spring; their busiest time of the year.
COVID-19 Update: We contacted a number of our top ranked online nurseries and they are all fully operational. If anything, they are a bit overwhelmed with all the business. This is awesome, just understand normal delivery times may be delayed a bit.
Everyone we contacted have made changes to ensure social distancing & proper sanitizing practices. Some expressed potential delays in customer service response times as they integrate work-at-home procedures for support staff.

Trying to figure out what trees and shrubs you want can be a bit overwhelming. So many choices with new introductions every year. There’s A LOT to choose from! Shopping online you’ll find just about every variety of tree or shrub but who has the best quality at the best prices?
We worked with 3 of the largest online plant nurseries in the country for 10 years. We have also visited (to evaluate) or ordered plants from over 30 online garden centers. We know what to look for and we don’t hold back what we dig up (pun intended). This site is dedicated to helping you buy plants online with confidence at the lowest prices.
Nurseries ranked by rating score high to low.

Before you place any order please make sure you verify when your plants will ship. Do it before giving them your money. Even southern nurseries that can ship year round face some exceptions & delays in March due to cold weather.
If a site says something like; ‘ships now weather permitting’ call them to verify shipping status. Also avoid online nurseries using gimmicks like; ‘Order now & we’ll hold it for free until spring.’ I can guaranty they won’t wait until spring to charge your credit card.
This is why we list the location of the nursery on each of their reviews. In most cases, it lets you know where your plants will be shipped from. For many in the south, winter can be a great time to plant. Cool nights and warm soil help plants establish roots quickly. The plants will focus more of their energy on the root growth underground during colder months.
We placed orders for 16 plants from our top rated nurseries in the past year. You can view pictures and read the complete unboxing review for each by clicking on any of the links below.
