Top Rated Online Nurseries
We have a NEW entrant. Plants By Mail (plantsbymail.com) has been making a concerted effort recently to build up traffic. They are much more visible when searching for popular landscape trees and shrubs, so we decided to start rating & reviewing them. That puts us up to 22 online nurseries we rate and review each month.
Our latest rankings, grades & updated reviews have a few changes but the same nursery is #1 for the 11th month in a row. You can read about what we grade and why here.
We're now into fall and the second busiest time for most online nurseries. Fall really is the best time of year to plant trees and shrubs. 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 have found the inventory and variety for most online nurseries dramatically increase, which is to be expected. Just please make sure you know if you are buying bare root material. Nurseries have to wait until after the plants go dormant to dig them out of the ground. Depending on location, it increases the potential for you to get delivery after your ground may have already frozen. Just ask, call if have to, and find out where those bare root plants are being grown.
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!
You finally decide what trees or shrubs you want but you can’t find them at any of your local garden centers. So you go online. Shopping online you’ll find just about every variety of tree or shrub but a whole new set of questions come up.
This site is dedicated to helping you buy plants online with confidence at the lowest prices. We have a very unique rating system for online nurseries that you will not find anywhere else.
Nurseries ranked by rating score high to low.
