“Lovely carpet of green”

Sherri I.
12/21/21

The Pennsylvania Sedge we planted is gorgeous. We are always complimented on the garden as people walk their dogs near our townhouse path. It is too bad that it is winter now or I could attach a picture of beautiful flowing grasses that never need to be mowed and require little maintenance. Love the plants we received and their survival rate was excellent. A very good choice in a shady area within a hot climate. We will continue to order from Tennessee Wholesale Nursery. They are a well-run company.

“Rip off”

Charles P.
6/17/21

They charged me for 15 large ferns, mulberry tree, 4 spruce trees, pine tree, and 5 viburnum in Nov. 2020. All were supposed to be delivered LIVE and 3-4 feet tall for LIVE trees. I received a 2.5 foot dead pine or fern like plant, twice, in a brown box, spring 2021--not packed to survive nor could I revive it. Because they sent two boxes to ship the dead one twice, they claimed I got my entire order. It cost me over $250 to receive one dead plant. BEWARE.

After seeing the pitiful dogwood trees at the local big box stores, I found this nursery in my childhood state of Tennessee. I ordered a pink and a white dogwood tree. It took a while to receive them but well worth it. Although dormant, the trunks and branches were healthy and very sturdy. I also like the cool innovation of gel on roots to retain moisture until ready to plant. Can't wait to see these in a year or two.

I searched everywhere to find a huckleberry plant and they were the only ones who would ship to California. I'm still waiting for it to bloom it says it needed a year to establish so hopefully by this spring I will see growth. They shipped really fast. Highly recommend.

Very nice size and shaped tree. Actually, double stemmed and about 3 feet tall. It arrived promptly, in excellent condition and well packaged. The roots were extra protected with rooting gel. In my zone 5 area, I will heal it in for the winter and move it to a permanent
Location, by a garden facing window, in the spring so I can enjoy its beautiful pink blossoms!

Came across TN Nursery while google searching for moss and native shade perennials. I liked the selection they had available so took a chance and really glad I did. Well priced, high quality bare root plants with detailed instructions, and really great sheet moss that i was lucky to get on sale. I'm a repeat buyer and will continue to be so!

I ordered four wisteria vines to plant along my barn after seeing them at a local nursery for $35.00 each. For less than $30, I was able to order all the plants I needed from Tennessee Wholesale Nursery. My wisteria vines arrived in good condition and came with clear instructions for planting them. I can't to see them bloom in the spring. I will definitely be ordering more plants for my garden next year from Tennessee Wholesale Nursery.

In November, 2021, we discovered TN Nursery as a source for the native plants we're using around our house. We placed an initial order for seven varieties to check out the quality. The bare root versions looked great (if you're used to bare roots) though it will be spring before we know for sure. Also, found that customer service was quick and responsive. Since then, we have ordered and received Club Moss (a very difficult plant to find) and a couple of dogwood trees. We are thrilled with finding this gem and have received a Christmas present from our family of a gift certificate to use in the coming months. We highly recommend them.

Every plant that I have received from TN Nursery has been vibrantly healthy and they have all arrived as scheduled and in excellent condition.
I love that I can order plants that share my geographic location with confidence they will thrive in their new home; plus it's so nice to buy quality plants at a good, fair price.
Tennessee Nursery is my new "go-to" for for growing the gardens here,,,,, THANK YOU!

Tip for consumers:
I think others should know that not only will they get healthy plants for a good price, they are packed extremely well and arrive when expected. Their plants are really beautiful .

Last Fall my Wife was watching one of the home improvement shows on TV and saw "these amazing Red Twig Dogwood Shrubs." She said the leafless red branches look wonderful against the winter snow and she would love to get one some day. I decided right then to surprise her for Christmas and, after some research, purchased four plants online from Tennessee Wholesale Nursery. Their information about the shrubs was thorough and the prices were better than any other place online. Plus, living in eastern Tennessee, I was happy to support a local business. The whole experience was painless and wonderful. The bare root plants arrived on time, very well packaged, with clear instructions for planting and care. Because the bare root plants needed to go into the ground quickly, my Wife got to open one of her Christmas presents early. She was thrilled! The plants are in the ground and we can't wait until Spring when they leaf out and then bloom. We're especially looking forward to next Winter to see the striking red twigs against some snow. I'm already picking out more plants to order from Tennessee Wholesale Nursery for Spring and Summer! Thanks Tennessee Wholesale Nursery for helping me with my Wife's Christmas Surprise!

Tip for consumers:
These folks were very helpful in answering all my questions.

I ordered ferns - ostrich and maiden hair. Bare roots arrived alive and the ostrich fern had a single frond. Planted the roots in peat pots this time so I could keep track of growth until the ferns were well established in soil. Ostrich fern frond immediately died off but new fronds were appearing. Maiden hair has yet to show green above soil but still hoping it will sprout before end of summer.
Customer service was responsive to inquiry about the status of my order.

Tip for consumers:
Plant bare roots in pots until established and growing confirmed. TN Nursery requires return of dead plant material before they will honor their warranty.

I stumbled on this nursery while I was surfing the internet for alternatives for grass which despite my best efforts will not grow in certain areas of my yard. I noticed that moss comes up naturally in some of the areas but I just need to add more. Was able to find really helpful info about moss on there website. Then purchased sheet and carpet moss at a decent price. Arrived with a couple days and in great condition. Can't wait till spring so I can buy more

I ordered this little tree in July in honor of my tiny niece. One of her nicknames is Sassafras. I was thankful it was held at the nursery until November. Louisiana heat can be pretty hard on a tiny tree. When I received it the packaging was in tact and secure. The tree was healthy and firm. I intend to keep it as a specimen tree so I have it in a barrel outside. We've been through a couple of cold spells. I took a couple of pics where you can see it is still green and actually tiny new growth. I highly recommend TN NURSERY

After searching with other online nurseries I soon discovered that the ones promoted most were from northern states. They did not understand like Tnnursrry that in the south - December is a great time to plant. They all wanted to wait till April. In the south that means lots of watering with few roots to survive the summer. Tn nursery understood and sent a redbud tree professionally packaged and it is now happily planted in my front yard awaiting the spring.
Thank you.

I did two orders from them, orange daylilies and blackberries in the first and two mulberry trees in the second about a year later.

Most of the daylily bulbs have come up and the blackberries seem okay. The mulberry trees haven't done much yet but it's winter and they're dormant.

They emailed back when I asked about shipping the blackberries (I ordered before they were in season) so they do communicate. Not sure what these other reviews are going on about.

Albeit a premature review... we live in hope! Pics in the Spring! So far the experience with Tenn Wholesale Nursery has been tremendous. Even with the free USPS shipping option, the two dogwood trees were delivered within a couple of days of placing the order.The barerooted specimens looked healthy and had a substantial rootball. An excellent price for a pink and specimen. I look forward to future dealings with this company as our new house and garden develops. Colin & Kim Burke

Ordered 120 sedge plants for $365, received box 12 x 10 x 8 of plugs so small you could count the blades. Expectation was 3" - 4" size that other nurseries had. Chose because I like to buy tennessee local.

Difficult getting complaint through to main office. Call center contracted to other site. Said they would resolve. Shipping manager called again to say wanted to get it right. Nothing done.

I have ordered from several mail-order plant companies previously. These plants arrived well packaged but the roots looked very dry. I understand about shipping dormant plants, but I am a bit concerned about how the plants will do with the roots being so dried out. It was an early winter shipment so I will have to wait until spring to see how the plants do. There was no gel or anything in the root bag area, so there was nothing to provide any moisture to the bare roots during shipment.
