Greenwood Nursery Review
Greenwood Nursery’s rating came in at 72.5, putting their grade at a C-. Greenwood Nursery is located in McMinnville, TN.
Greenwood Nursery has made some upgrades to their website. It looks completely different then it did just last fall. They even started a podcast recently. It almost looks like they just debuted a new site and went with the basic template or theme, if you will. It is very basic with a cookie cutter look & feel. It is super fast until you start using the search option.
They recently added descriptions for each product on the category pages. The listings also include a size and price. We assume those are the smallest sizes & prices. As of July 30th, we found 18 evergreen shrubs and 10 evergreen trees. That’s a steep drop from just 4 months ago when they had 71 evergreen shrubs and 10 evergreen trees for sale. They are also promoting pre-sales for fall delivery. Before you order anything, we recommend calling them first to know when your order will be shipped.
Greenwood Nursery was first registered in 2000, that gives them a 9 rating for years in business. They seem to mostly carry sizes from a 2.5 inch to 1 gallon containers as well as bareroot. Prices are a bit all over the place.
Even with the latest revisions their site isn’t the easiest to get around on. 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 36 Google customer reviews for Greenwood Nursery with a 3.3 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.
