Jackson & Perkins Nursery Review
Jackson and Perkins Nursery rating and grade stayed the same this month. They are known more for their roses but do carry a lot more trees, shrubs & perennials then most people may realize. They also have a nice variety of seasonal plants & decorations during the Holiday's.
We bought a pre-decorated tabletop Christmas tree from Jackson and Perkins for the 2018 Holiday season. Pictures and a full review are here; Jackson & Perkins Un-boxing. It's now in a container outside enjoying our warn weather and growing at an impressive rate. I'm curious to see how tall it gets for the next Holiday season.
Jackson & Perkins was originally founded in 1872. It has bounced around with different owners over the years. It's current owner also runs Wayside Gardens (www.waysidegardens.com) and Park Seed (www.parkseed.com).
Jackson and Perkins .com got pretty good scores for most items. They are better known for their roses but they do carry some of the more popular evergreen shrubs. They also have some citrus trees in stock occasionally. Like most nurseries this time of year, their selection is smaller. Most nurseries don't want too much inventory for the hot summer. I like how Jackson & Perkins clearly show the size/height and they seem to have a good range of sizes from 1 quart to 3 gallon containers. They also clearly mark a product is out of stock, saving you some time when you're moving around the Jackson & Perkins site.
Their Guarantee is kind of long. Boils down to a replacement or credit if you can prove you followed their planting & care instructions. Jackson & Perkins ship costs are in the middle of the pack. Ship times are spelled out, which is good. It's kind of long but details justify the length.
What were the red flags?
- We had one concern, Jackson Perkins reviews. Not only could we not find many reviews on the product pages but we also saw a discrepancy regarding their overall ratings. They use a third party service, which is common. When we searched Jackson & Perkins reviews on Google we saw this: 4.9 out of 10 score but when we went to that page, it appears like they have a 2 out of 5 average rating. That and there's A LOT of apologizing from Jackson & Perkins in their replies to customer reviews. Depends how you want to look at it. It's a positive that they take the time to respond.
