Plant Me Green Nursery Review
Overall, Plant Me Green's rating and grade stayed the same as last month.
PlantMeGreen.com is a retail online nursery created by a very large and successful wholesale growing operation, Simpson Nurseries.
Simpson Nurseries has been a plant supplier for, and fulfilled some of Nature Hills orders. At least they did supply plants, we're not sure if they are still work with Nature Hills. We saw ads for Nature Hills twice this past weekend when looking up PlantMeGreen.com on Google. Seems a bit vicious to be running ads on a suppliers search results.
Last month Plant Me Green raised some of their prices but there are still plenty of good deals. In fact, we noticed some prices had come down, prompting the increase in their overall rating.
They seem to show pictures of the field plants, giving you some idea what you’re buying. That's a huge plus.
Their selection for evergreen trees & shrubs is a bit limited. They do carry some pretty large sizes. We found a few 7 gallon container sizes. As of October 1st, they only listed 13 evergreens in stock. They also offer deciduous trees, fruit & nut trees and more. Even with the other selections, Plant Me Green has one of the smaller list of plants for sale online that we have seen.
If your order is under $100, the ship costs range from $11.99 up to $24.99. That is kind of high but it seems like they perpetually offer free shipping on orders over $100.
The retail website hasn’t been around very long, so it got dinged on ratings for years in business and domain authority. Having started in 2012 also means they haven’t collected a lot of product reviews. But they get huge credit for not shying away from blunt reviews.
Since they ship a lot of orders from Florida which allows them to ship many products to southern, warmer climates all year.
They offer a “100% Guarantee” with a “1 Year Warranty on All Potted Plants”. What does that mean? "If your potted plant fails to survive the transplant process within one year from the date of purchase, we will issue a 100% store credit of the original purchase price to replace it. We will require a photo of the tree or shrub to confirm it is dead before issuing a credit to purchase the replacement plant. The 1-year warranty covers the cost of replacing the plant. Shipping prices will be determined by the shipping carrier. Shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer and must be paid prior to sending the replacement plant. "
The language is pretty similar to other online nurseries offering a 1 year warranty program. The biggest difference... this one is free! That's right, PlantMeGreen.com does not charge an extra percent of the plant cost to get the 1 year warranty. It automatically is provided with each plant purchase. IMPORTANT! This 'complimentary' warranty is for their potted plants. They also sell bareroot plants which has an optional 1 year extended warranty for an extra cost.
For sales of bare root plants, they offer a 50% store credit for the cost of the plant(s). There are a few conditions. They do offer cancellations for any order that hasn’t shipped yet. Overall, their terms & warranty aren’t the worse and bot the best.
Plant Me Green does offer a lot of resources, guides and plant information. They also have You Tube videos under the pretty cool moniker; “Plant Me Green TV”.
What were the red flags?
- They haven't been online too long, there's not a lot to pick on. The only issue we have is the legalese for their terms. They use the dreaded ALL CAPS at the end.
