Garden Crossings gets the highest rating for the 8th month in a row! They are our #1 rated online nursery. 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 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.
As of May 15th, they listed 46 evergreen shrubs & trees. That's a pretty big increase from last month. The product pages 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.
If there is any knock on them, their navigation to get to a listing for evergreen shrubs is not very intuitive. You need a few clicks and need to dig a bit to find it.
Garden Crossings are one of the drop shippers for Nature Hills and ship some orders for them. You can usually get a better price buying from Garden Crossings then for the same product on Nature Hills.
