Greenwood Nursery Review
Greenwood Nursery's grade stayed the same a last month at a C-. Greenwood Nursery is located in McMinnville, TN.
Greenwood Nursery seems to list all products on their category pages regardless if they are in stock and available to sell. If you go to their evergreen shrubs page it appears they have a couple of products listed twice. We opened both listings into separate tabs and couldn't see anything different. Must just be some sort of glitch with the website. We originally mentioned this seven months ago and it hasn't been fixed.
They recently added brief descriptions for each product on the category pages. The listings also include a size and price. We assume those are the smallest sizes & prices. At least now they say if something is out of stock. But even then, there seems to be some issues. There's one product listed with 'booking for fall' yet the product page says it is out of stock.
Greenwood Nursery was first registered in 2000, that gives them a 9 rating for years in business. They seem to have a decent selection of evergreen trees & shrubs but there also seems to be a lot that are already out of stock for spring. They seem to mostly carry sizes from a quart to 1 gallon containers. Prices are a bit all over the place.
Their site isn't the easiest to get around on. Greenwood Nursery content for product pages is thin compared to others. They do offer a pretty comprehensive list of planting instructions and helpful gardening resources.
It was hard to find any reviews for Greenwood Nursery. It took some digging but we eventually found 14 Google customer reviews for Greenwood Nursery with a 4.4 out of 5 rating. You can view their Google reviews here.
Here's Greenwood's guarantee: Greenwood’s Stress Free Guarantee on evergreen plant varieties are shipped healthy, growing and ready for planting. Once received and no further reports have been filed with us within 48 hours of carrier delivery, plants are considered accepted. Evergreen plants that do not survive within the first year planted may be replaced at half current regular pricing plus shipping.
It's also the first guarantee that had its own disclaimer page. Not saying whether that's good or bad, just unique.
What were the red flags?
- Ship costs are a bit high, especially with the smaller sizes they sell. 20% and higher.
- We didn't see many product reviews. Just seems odd for a site that's been active since 2000.
- Greenwood Nursery reviews online are hard to find. Just seems odd that they don't have a lot more online reviews.
