My Perfect Plants Nursery Review
My Perfect Plants Nursery rating came in at an 81 this month & their grade remained a B-. This keeps them in our top tier of online plant nurseries. Our biggest issue at the start of October is the number of trees & shrubs that are out of stock.
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 2015 and the company started their retail website, offering their plants to consumers nationwide (excluding Alaska, Hawaii, Arizona & California).
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 third generation just took over less than 2 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 almost 50 acres in production and built their success by growing, selling and shipping high quality landscape plants at reasonable prices.

41 Years in Business
2021 marks their 41st 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 direct 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 care for the various plants. We also absolutely love their product pictures. It’s gives you a real good idea 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 that 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 a low as $13.99. 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 were a little on the high end, but they recently dropped them. The chart below is from July 1, 2021. I can’t imagine it is cheap to ship mature plants from Florida all over the country.
They do emphasize the quality and care of their packaging systems.
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 2 years ago but it has been around since 2015. That makes it a bit perplexing why there are only 26 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 the 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 ship costs. You can read more here.
When dealing with any live product, returns are tough. My Perfect Plants does have a return policy you can view here. 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!
