My Perfect Plants Nursery Review
My Perfect Plants Nursery rating is unchanged. They remain one of our top nurseries at #4 in our top 20 rankings. We have ordered from them 4 times and have always received great plants with fast shipping. Our latest purchase was a Windmill Palm tree. You can view unboxing pictures here.
Perfect Plants Nursery has really made an effort to expand the products both in-stock that were previously out-of-stock as well as many new plants. My Perfect Plants is interesting to us. We have ordered 5 times and have always been blown away by the quality.
Based in the panhandle of Florida, My Perfect Plants started in 1980 as a family-run wholesale grower serving retail garden centers throughout the southeast. Fast forward to 2017 and the company started its retail website, offering its plants to consumers nationwide (excluding Alaska, Hawaii, Arizona & California).
MyPerfectPlants.com Debuts a Whole New Site!
The one constant in this industry is changing. Perfect Plants Nursery joins a pretty long list of online nurseries that have made major revisions to their site in the past 2 years. We’re pretty sure it just debuted on the first of November of 2021. It is definitely a lot faster, there are a lot more filtering options & they offer just about every payment option available to US e-commerce sites.
From first impressions, the site is a lot easier for you, the consumer, to shop and checkout. We’ve seen more than our share of other online nurseries who tried a similar re-design and endured weeks if not months of stagnant sales from miscues.
It’s also obvious they are constantly testing features on the site to make it a better experience for you.
We visited their growing operation!
We took a trip in April 2021 to the Florida panhandle to check out the people & operation of My Perfect Plants. The second generation just took over less than 3 years ago. It’s obvious they spent their entire lives in and around a growing operation. Three things became very clear.
- They REALLY care about growing & shipping beautiful plants
- They are going through a pretty big growth period with all the frenetic activity associated with rapid growth
- The people all seem to care. Not just ownership, they have fostered a very supportive atmosphere to challenge employees to be their best.
My Perfect Plants has grown to over 60 acres in production and built its success by growing, selling, and shipping high-quality landscape plants at reasonable prices.

43 Years in Business
2023 marks its 43rd anniversary and the reigns have been handed to the next generation in the family. You don’t survive & thrive in the wholesale growing business for 40+ years unless you are selling quality plant material and know what you’re doing.
With the expansion of the website, they are now making a push to allow consumers across the country to buy directly from their growing fields.
The website is easy to navigate. Most things are pretty intuitive. There’s also a lot of useful information including planting and caring for the various plants. We also absolutely love their product pictures. It gives you a really good idea of what you are buying. They must have spent a lot of time and money to get all those pictures compiled.
America’s Fastest-Growing Online Nursery
Inc. magazine revealed in August 2021 that My Perfect Plants Nursery ranked No. 150 on its annual Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. That’s a pretty prestigious accolade. They may not be as big or as well known as some of our other top-ranked nurseries but they are pretty passionate plant people.
Prices Are Attractive
Most sizes we saw were 1 and 3-gallon containers but they do carry some 5 and 7-gallon-size containers. The prices were more than fair. We saw some 1-gallon shrubs for as low as $19.95. Some prices seemed a bit all over the place but considering the quality, it’s hard to find a reason not to buy from them.
My Perfect Plants shipping costs are a little on the high end. They emphasize the quality and care of their packaging systems. They are also shipping from the panhandle of Florida. It costs more to ship to most places from the deep southeastern part of the country.
There seems to be a fair number of product reviews and they seem genuine. A lot of compliments on the quality surpassing expectations.
I know My Perfect Plants Nursery has just started emphasizing the website about 3 years ago but it has been around since 2017. That makes it a bit perplexing why there are only 82 My Perfect Plants Google Reviews. On the positive side, they have a robust 4.8 rating. You can view My Perfect Plants Nursery Google reviews here.
Plant Warranty & Returns Policies
Plant warranty language is pretty basic. Not the best we have seen but not the worst either. Basically, notify them within 5 days of receipt if there are issues with the plants. If any of them die within 45 days they will offer you a 100% store credit. If you do not notify them within 5 days but tell them within 45 days of plants not making it and they will offer a 50% store credit.
As with most other online nurseries, My Perfect Plants is offering an extended, 1-year warranty for an added cost. For an extra 10% of the plant cost, you will receive an extended warranty for up to 1 year. If your plant dies, you will get a 100% store credit. All credits exclude shipping costs. You can read more here.
When dealing with any live product, returns are tough. My Perfect Plants does have a return policy. Basically, they need to authorize a return and will charge a 25% re-stocking fee providing the plant(s) are returned in live condition.
What were the red flags?
- At this time, we couldn’t think of any glaring issues to point out!
