Garden Crossings Review
After being ranked #1 for a record 11 months in a row, Garden Crossings finds itself entrenched at #2 for the second month.. Garden Crossings only dropped by 1 point but that was mainly due to the fact they are done shipping for winter.
Garden Crossings doesn't necessarily sell a lot of evergreens. They do have more perennials and annuals than evergreens. In fact, they are one of our highest rated online nurseries for perennials and annuals.
Garden Crossings still ha a free shipping code on their home page that is tied to last year. The code is 20GC19. Our guess is that they will update everything in the near future.
Garden Crossings Order & Shipping Information page says that they will start shipping on April 1st. Garden Crossings does a good job clearly letting you know when your plant(s) will be delivered. There are, unfortunately, some other online nurseries that will take your order & money without mentioning when it will be shipped.
We mentioned it in September that there appeared to be a filter missing to be able to just view evergreen shrubs. They fixed the issue and have even added a few new filtering options. So, when you go to view all shrubs on Garden Crossings their left column has a lot of options, including staff picks. That's pretty cool.
When we checked on December 31st, Garden Crossings has 43 evergreen shrubs for sale. Container sizes we saw ranged from 1-quart to 3-gallon.
The product pages themselves have good information, it's just not laid out in the most user friendly way. Nothing crazy bad, just a few optimization tweaks needed.
Garden Crossings has by far the best return policy. Pretty rare among online nurseries but they will actually refund you the money paid for the plant. "If you are not completely satisfied with any of our products upon arrival, please let us know. We will either issue you a store credit, which can be used towards your next order with us, or refund your credit card." The refund/credit even includes ship costs you paid. They are the only larger online nursery that offers ship costs with a credit or refund.
Garden Crossings has a good reputation for sending quality plants. They grow most of what they sell. A few varieties they buy from Michigan growers near them. Most of their containers are on the smaller size. Quarts, 8" containers, some 1 gallon sizes. Garden Crossings also has a retail garden center for local customers.
Garden Crossings Nursery reviews on Google has an excellent average of 4.6 out of 5 stars.
Garden Crossings are one of the drop shippers for Nature Hills and ships some orders for them. You can usually get a better price buying from Garden Crossings direct then for the same product on Nature Hills.
What were the red flags?
- For as long as the site has been active, there are not a lot of product reviews. Just seems odd.
