Ginkgo Gardens: what do users think?


Kristen Diaz: Just moved here from Miami & have been searching for a new fav plant shop. Ive explored so many & this one is definitely it! Great selection of plants at reasonable prices. They have an outdoor & indoor section plus an upstairs portion. I’ve gotten so many plants from here already. The staff is also friendly & helpful. Recommend.

Scott Nguyen: Some of the plants sold here did not have any roots, so what chance do they have in surviving? The other plant we bought was fine though, still this nursery need to either check their greenhouse or suppliers for rooted plants.

a: I finally had the chance to stop by Ginkgo Gardens, and it completely exceeded my expectations. There is a WIDE variety of plants, planters, tools, and more! During checkout, I told the man I was just beginning my gardening journey and he pulled out this book to help me with the plants I bought today! Thank you so much for the amazing experience and exceptional customer service. This isn’t the closest plant nursery to me, but it is 100% worth the trip. I will definitely be back soon!

Ashley Stewart: Ginkgo Gardens is a cozy neighborhood plant store where I get almost all of my houseplants and planters. They also have a wide selection if outdoor plants. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the plants are beautiful. Sometimes I just visit the store for some pleasant browsing.

Sheree P: I was recently in an unfortunately common predicament. My husband was on a business trip and my daughter was in quarantine from Pre school. So I was limited in what I could do but was also responsible for entertaining a busy toddler. During our time together, my daughter and I prepared our garden to plant vegetables. I was able to call Ginko, talk about specifics of our plan and pay over the phone. Someone even gladly brought the merchandise to my car. The customer service representative went above and beyond in taking the time to speak with me and my daughter about our desires and even researched a topic for us. I feel valued as a customer and will always come back for my gardening needs.

Catherine Zander: A few caveats, it's higher priced than a big box store and it's a small business so there's limited inventory. That said, what they do have is wonderful. I'm very picky and I found exactly what I wanted. Whoever does the ordering has great taste. The people are knowledgeable and kind. They go well above and beyond. I was nervous about repotting a plant and they helped me find the soil I'd need and talked me through how to do it. I definitely would have killed it had I not spoken to them. The photo is my successfully repotted peace lily. I will absolutely go back.

Siena Dante: Reasonable prices based on my past experience buying plants in New York City. Staff was really friendly and knowledgeable and gave me good plant recommendations. They have a good and varied selection as well

Alison A: I was very excited to come hear about hearing good things. I was looking for something particular that a friend had found here. I asked a long haired male employee for help, and he just told me to look around for it…. The place is huge with lots of variety of plants, so I wasted time because I couldn’t find it… with that being said, very poor customer service. Wasted my time here.

Anna Sumner: My first impression of this place is that it's a garden where plants are available to be taken home. The outdoor space is absolutely brimming with happy plants of all sizes so much do that it spills out onto the sidewalk out front. The indoor space has two levels. The second level is accessible by stairs and has a very lovely balcony with more plants and outdoor furnishings. I didn't notice an ADA option to ascend. It would likely be a tough store to navigate anyhow with such narrow aisles all around. Parking is available on the street. Read the signs because some spots are affected by the school nearby. They had a great variety of planters from basic nursery plastic to ceramic and even brushed metal. As you can imagine the nice ones are pricey as are the larger plants. Furnishings and racks can also be purchased here. They even have terrarium components. Literally whatever you may need for basic indoor and outdoor gardening is under this roof. Go check it out!

Kris negella.bbs@hotmail.com: Although there is a great selection of plants/ horticulture, the old guy that is either the owner or an employee has a terrible attitude which he attempts to hide with snide remarks and a disingenuous smile! Outside of this abrassive individual the other staff members are wonderfully helpful, pleasant and professional. Please check out other plant buying options in the neighborhood....this man makes the buying experience at Ginkgo Gardens horrible! We've sent others to Ginkgo Gardens to see if my experience was an isolated incident. It appears this grumpy old guy doesn't like certain groups of individuals....Pitiful Ginkgo Gardens

Urban Jungle: what do users think?


Ryan Ellis: I ordered a succulent garden to surprise my wife. The arrangement was awesome, but the plants were not doing well after a couple of days. I contacted Urban Jungle. They delivered a brand new garden and let me keep the old one. The new succulent garden is doing much better. Good customer service!

Justine Williams: Very disappointed! I was excited to find Urban Jungle online and to see that they could deliver a fabulous plant to my colleague for her birthday. I received an invoice and receipt confirming that it would be delivered by the end of the day on a Friday. Not only was it not delivered (missing her birthday!) but it is now the following Wednesday and I haven't been able to reach them on phone, email, or text. If they could have atleast contacted me to let me know there was an issue I would have been understanding, but the ghosting makes it feel very scam-y. I've contacted my credit card company to dispute the charge.

Caitlin Hone: I ordered a Plants that cost nearly $60 from this business in April and never received it (it’s now August). I was not refunded my money and I have never been contacted by the business though I have emailed and called and texted them. I understand that the spring was an incredibly difficult time for everyone but I was still charged money for a product that I never received.

Nicole Choi: I gave Urban Jungle a chance because of their prices, but I had a very poor experience with them. I ordered a plant to be delivered on Monday, and I received no confirmation, even through email, about my order being placed or an estimated delivery time. However, I know my order was processed because I was charged. During their business hours, i tried calling and texting, as they suggest doing in their voicemail, but I received no response. I have no way of knowing if my order was actually delivered or not, yet if I reach out to the recipient, it’ll ruin the surprise! I was using Urban Stems, but again, I have Urban Jungle a try because of their competitive prices. However, the customer service is so poor at Urban Jungle that I’ll be going back to Urban Stems.

Josh Higham: Terrible experience. Ordered a couple of plants for a coworker whose surgery keeps getting postponed because of covid-19. The website was slick and everything seemed good--they even offered free delivery! However, they won't answer my calls or emails, and the plants haven't been delivered.

Amal Omer: This is a shoddy service that should be reported. My order was delivered a day late. I received no confirmation of this until after *I* followed up TWICE. They also delivered the wrong plant and the message was printed with *multiple typos* (despite me noting this prior to the delivery). I have followed up multiple times to get answers but have received no response to my emails, there's no answer to calls, and the vm box is full. I have also reached out to my credit card to dispute the charge. I regret using the service and do not recommend giving them your money. Make sure to review the other low star ratings below as you will see they had a similar experience to me. Totally ruined the experience of wanting to send someone a thoughtful gift. This is zero star service. DO NOT USE THEM.

Danny Peters: I wish I would have researched this company before ordering. Went purely based on social media. Ordered a plant for Christmas, to be delivered on Monday the 23rd. It never arrived. And just like all the other 1 star reviews they don't answer the phone, don't respond to texts, they don't respond to emails, and don't respond to Instagram messages. The website has NO information about any minimum days for delivery. You just pick a date, and the confirmation just says it's good. Maybe if I get my plant I will adjust this review, but the lack of information on the website and the non-existent customer service makes this place difficult to give the benefit of the doubt. Just give me some sort of correspondence, please.

Metta C: Updating to say that they fixed their mistake and ended up delivering the flowers I ordered later that week. Apparently there was a technical problem with their website. I ordered an early Mother's Day gift for my mom to be delivered yesterday (Thursday) and it was not received. I've called twice now and emailed with no response from the establishment. Terrible customer service - if you are not able to fill orders, please do not have a shop online that states that you will. DO NOT ORDER FROM THEM.

Janelle Joslin: Wish I could give this company NO stars...Do not order from Urban Jungle! I ordered an arrangement to be delivered to my daughter for her birthday and it never arrived. I've received no response from phone calls, or various texts and emails over the last week! Charges have been disputed...now off to find something else to send my girl...a week late, mind you :(

Timothy Meyer: Same experience as many others - I ordered a plant for delivery, it never arrived, and I never heard back from Urban Jungle in any of my attempts to contact them by phone or by email. They ghosted me and it really bummed me out. I'm happy for those who did receive their plants and liked them though, I really am.

Little Leaf: what do users think?


Austin Graff: On a hunt for the perfect plant for our living room, my wife, daughter and I visited four plant shops within two hours- Rewild, Little Leaf, She Loves Me and Ginko's Gardens. All were great options, but here's what stood out about Little Leaf: 1) Space: It's the most beautiful space with plants everywhere, bringing the tile floor to life. It's a small shop, but one you can easily photograph. 2) Price: For being a boutique shop, the prices weren't bad at all. For a taller plant for our living room, we expected to pay $200+, but found an option at Little Leaf for $69. Little Leaf also sells greeting cards and other small gifts. Parking can be harder to find, but worth it if you snag a spot. There are tons of shops and restaurants nearby. The one downside of Little Leaf was that the staff were the least helpful out of the locations we visited. They weren't rude at all, just didn't jump in to help as eagerly as the others. At the end of the day, we're all human so I get not having the energy to always be our best, especially around the holidays.
Response: Hi Austin, Thank you so much for visiting us! We strive to offer the most hospitable customer service to everyone, and are disappointed to hear you didn't receive that. We'll take your note to heart and be sure to continue working on this. We hope you love your new plant, and don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. Best, Mollie

Ben Segall: Love this place. Got a rlly nice fern in a gorgeous handmade ceramic pot. The plant selection is awesome and they are rlly nice and helpful. Be aware: most of the ceramics and plants are sold separately. The ceramics are mostly handmade and therefore priced accordingly, so if you don’t want to spend extra on a planter pot I suggest you bring your own and have them repot it for you. Overall this place is a 10/10 recommend. Will definitely go back soon.
Response: So happy to hear you had a great experience, Ben! I remember potting that fern for you and being excited about the plant + pot combo you picked out. Hope to see you again in the shop soon! Best, Mollie

Melissa Pazornik: Eleanor was absolutely wonderful to work with! Her eye for arrangements and knowledge about each plant was phenomenal. The entire team made my experience so enjoyable and I am OBSESSED with the final product.
Response: Thanks so much Melissa! We are also thrilled with how the arrangements turned out- enjoy your new plant babies! -The Little Leaf Team

Ceci Moffit: The store was very nice despite the strong artificial flower smell. The store was also very small and not covid safe at all. The male employee was very rude and did not answer my questions. He also look as if he had more important things to do. I have never had such a bad experience at a flower store before.
Response: Hi Ceci, We're so sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. We pride ourselves in our customer service and COVID safety, running at a limited capacity of 8 customers in the shop. We hope you give us another chance down the road, and we will be sure to share your feedback with our team. Best, Mollie

R. Sims: I have purchased several plants from Little Leaf over the years and recently decided to get a larger plant for my living area. I ordered a Birds of Paradise to be delivered, but did not hear from anyone on the delivery date (Saturday). I got a message on Sunday saying the plant was delivered. I reached out to the supposed delivery driver who I guess contacted Little Leaf and received a message that the confirmation was sent early, erroneously. Ok, no problem. The plant was delivered today and I must say I am disappointed in the quality - many of the leaves are split and the plant does not seem to have been well taken care of. I am surprised by this and unfortunately will be purchasing plants elsewhere.
Response: Hi there, we're so sorry to hear about the state of your plant upon arrival. If you could send us an email to hello@littleleafshop.com, we'd love to send you a replacement. Thank you, Mollie

Holden Rhodes: Hands down the best indoor plant boutique in DC. There’s no other place like it. The selection is always excellent and the profits are high quality and extremely healthy, especially compared to other plant stores in the area. I’ve bought nearly all of my plants from here and there’s a noticeable difference in the longevity of the products purchased here versus chain stores. Staff is consistently helpful and welcoming and the aesthetic never fails!

Ms.: Nice gem in D.C. great selection of plants, all shapes and sizes. Great staff. Some items are great to give as gifts. Books, cards, pots etc. Loved the pot hangers
Response: Thanks so much for the kind review, Ms. Green! Come back and see us again soon!

Lindsey Casella: Always love stopping by this gem. The plants are reasonably priced and the decor/design of the store feels like Justin’s Blakeney Jungalow come to life !!!! Here are my newest additions from the store, that I snagged for total of ~$25. (Note: care cards are included, which is ideal for beginners!)
Response: Hi Lindsey! Thanks so much for the sweet words! We're so happy to hear you're a fan and hope to see you again soon in the shop. Many thanks, the LL team

Kristen Diaz: Shop looks really aesthetically pleasing but that’s about it. Not a great variety of plants & everything is wildly overpriced (plants & pots). Even with that, I expected at least good customer service but received nothing from both employees working there. Not even a greeting or goodbye as I left (even though I still thanked them as I walked out), let alone assistance with anything else. There was also only 1 other person in the store who left before I finished shopping around so the shop wasn’t busy.
Response: Hi Kristen, We're so sorry to hear about your experience. We completely understand how frustrated you must have been reflecting on your visit. We are always working to train our team to provide warm, attentive and welcoming service, and we will certainly use your experience to help us improve. We hope you give us another chance and have you back in sometime. Best, The Little Leaf Team

Ms. D: Extremely poor customer service and overpriced. Last Tuesday, (Dec 21) the brunette female was cold, unwelcoming and her attitude/personality was off-putting. Especially, her tone of voice when telling people there was an occupancy limit as soon as they barely stepped foot into the shop. With how tiny the shop is, it definitely needs a limit for the safety of staff/customers during Covid, but there’s a much more professional and friendly way to communicate to people, let alone customers. When entering the shop, it felt like you were just a nuisance to her. I will not be returning.
Response: Hi there, We're so sorry to hear about your experience. We are constantly striving to offer warm and genuine customer service, and are disappointed to hear you didn't receive that during your visit. We hope you give us another chance and that we get to see you in the shop again. Best, Mollie

American Plant: what do users think?


Cecilia Gaultney: This nursery has disappointed me. I was so excited initially, but then my plants started not thriving. That happens sometimes with a change of location/environment so I was patient and did everything possible to make them happy. I bought a gorgeous begonia from them that died in 4 weeks. They over-fertilized it (which made the bloom so impressive) but in days it started showing leaf burn. I couldn't save it as hard as I tried. A rose I got from them was also not looking great. It was not putting out new buds or stems, and it was yellowing. It ended up to be spider mites. The spider mites then spread to my nearby plants. (I know I didn't have spider mites before the rose because I have a pretty controlled environment - a balcony - and no other plants changed.) The spider mites have taken over my elephant ear and tomatoes and have been very hard to knock back. I have one plant left from them. It's a maidenhair fern. It's not put out any new stalks. It hasn't died yet but it certainly isn't a very healthy plant.I have 20+ other plants that are all doing just fine so my conclusion is that I got unhealthy plants from this nursery.

Maggie Quinn: I used to hear people talk about how American Plant is a little pricey but good quality and was scared off. Early in the pandemic when stores weren't open, I ordered some perennials from an online store out if state and was unpleasantly surprised when they arrived and were TINY. Now, I view American Plant as a great value for good sized, healthy plants. I love their large selection and helpful descriptions. I can always find quite a few good native plants, which are always labeled well to help me find them. They have very good social distancing measures that make me feel safe shopping there. Makes me happy to support a great local business.

Wanda B: Shop here whenever in area & in need of flowers & gardening supplies. Orderly stocked inventory & courteous employees makes it a lovely shopping experience every time! Only criticism is they are a little pricey!

BRT: Lovely inventory and perfectly located in the heart of Bethesda. You'll over pay but worth the comfort. Staff is always ready to lend a hand.

Tracy Needham: I think they have just about everything you need in terms of plants, herbs, etc. Staff are friendly for the most part. A lot of times you have to track someone down if you have questions. Parking is awful. I would never go on a weekend due to parking.

Shannon Jennings: I love the selection of decorative pots and other home items here in the inside store, who ever purchases for this place has great taste and does a good job curating for different styles. The outside section here is a little overwhelming if you don't know what you're looking for, but staff will help you if you need guidance. I have had some hit or miss customer service experiences here, but I think the majority of the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and do their best to jump in if you want help. It's a mixed bag but mostly positive. Just as an example, I was here recently buying a bunch of pots and miscellaneous stuff, and the person who rang me up completed the transaction and then wordlessly meandered away. There was too much stuff for me to carry, and it was not bagged up because of the odd sizes of the items, so I said to a different cashier, "I"ll be right back, I will just have to make two trips to take this stuff." Another girl jumped in and cheerfully offered to help bring things out to my car. So... weird customer service from the person who rung me up(?), but excellent customer service from the girl who carried stuff to my car :) I am deducting one star because I recently bought an outdoor hanging plant here and it literally shriveled to dust and died the next day. I specifically chose this hanging plant based on the recommendation of a friendly staff member who said it would do well in the shady area of my porch. I am not a plant expert, but I do have a lot of indoor and outdoor plants and am not a complete noob -- I have no idea how it's even possible that this thing died so quickly :( Otherwise, I have only good things to say about this place and I always look forward to going here. All of the indoor plants I have bought here have done well without pests or problems. Great selection, and usually pretty good service.

Kristin Dunbar: Wide variety of plants available including many species & cultivars not typically found in other garden centers.

Ericka Ward-Audena: This place has everything you need to start gardening or to take your gardening to the next level. I love to get ideas from simply taking everything in. 😌

John Weir: As always, that place is tight and packed, however the selection and quality is second to none

Karen Smith: Good quality plants, with helpful informed people.

American Plant: what do users think?


neriah anne: Visited for the first time today! This is my first plant shop I've visited since moving here recently. I'm starting to collect houseplants again since I had to leave them behind. I loved the selection of plants available! They had lots of plants I've dreamed of seeing like the variegated string of hearts, calathea orbifolia, hoyas. I will definitely be coming back again to check out the baby plants! The cons are that the larger plants were pretty pricey and customer service is a bit lacking, but it was busy today. I wish some of the larger trailing plants like the pothos njoy and other hoyas came in smaller pots that were more affordable. Overall a great houseplant spot!

Stephanie Stubler: Like my favorite nurseries: a plant wonderland from the moment you walk in. I was on a mission for indoor plants so did not spend much time in the covered annual/perennial area, but it was very well stocked and taken care of from my quick outdoor tour. So many indoor plant varieties to choose from, a few I had never seen in this area. I will return for further investigation, for sure!

Linda Balon Stein: Bought Biotone here to amend the soil prior to installing new shrubs. Also picked up flower and veggie seeds. American Plant is amazing. It is a bit higher priced compared to other local nurseries or big box stores. The staff were very nice and helpful.

Ashley Robertson: Nursery hopping in DC, MD, and VA is a favorite past time of mine and so far American Plant wins my award for most beautiful. American Plant had a large selection of healthy looking indoor and outdoor plants. They have everything from succulents, to trees, to climbing vines, and roses. I picked up some pollinator seeds from the garden center, a trellis, and a Thanksgiving Cactus. The prices were fair and the staff were knowledgeable and available. I particularly loved their yard sculpture collection. Those were pricy but the design and quality were some of the best that I’ve seen. I had to keep slapping my own hands to not walk away with all their hanging plants. Gorgeous!

Paul Hudson: This store is amazing, it has a wonderful assortment of plants and very knowledgeable staff. Overall, I had a excellent experience walking around and finding the plants I was looking for!!

Julie Chang: Had a great experience! Amazingly helpful staff and beautiful selection. Ended up buying a bird of paradise and a beautiful pot. Numerous staff helped me find the best fit for my needs and even adjusted my car to help things fit.

Sara Corrigan: Come every year for our Christmas tree. They have a really good selection, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Hits all the marks for us! We come for gardening season too are always pleased :)

Jeffery Holley: I fancy myself a seasoned gardener with Master Gardener certification from a California and Idaho. I'm crazy for flowers, nurseries, yard tools and botanical gardens. In a business with wild swings in seasonality and traffic, the customer care experience at AP is a superior. Folks are helpful and attentive. Plant inventory is excellent and the shop is filled with practical items and gift delights. One day I walked in with three 20-year-old Felco pruners in dire need of care. Garden Supply Manager, Andy Harms, fixed them up with alacrity. Polished up with new blades and springs...they are like new. Thank you American Plant, your products and people are a head-and-shoulders above any garden center. Period.

Liz T: Beautiful plants with tons of selection. Pretty reasonably priced for the location. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend engaging with them because they are also knowledgeable. We ha d a small bush not make it and they gave us no trouble at all to replace it.

David Feuer: Very helpful staff, large selection in general. I do wish they sold wild-type strawberries.

Johnson's Florist and Garden Centers: what do users think?


Jesse Cowan: Terrific customer service today! I was greeted right away by a friendly staffer who showed me just the plant I was looking for and helped me pick one from 3 healthy specimens. Then another friendly staffer potted it for me, and when she understood it was to be a gift, wrapped it with pretty tissue paper. So grateful, and looking forward to coming back soon.

Evan Morier: Johnson's has some great houseplants, some of which are very reasonably priced. There are nice pots as well. Great place to go during the holidays for ornaments (and afterwards for sales). Cut flowers are nice but pricey. I've always had great service here as well.

Dan S: Nice people working there, hence my not giving 1 star. We’ve had multiple issues of purchasing products from them that are infested with various pests. We bought a palm plant from them, to then find out it was infested with spider mites (to this day we haven’t been able to get rid of them, and have isolated our palm plant). We also bought compost from them on a separate occasion, to then find out (the hard way) that it was infested with fungus gnats. Our veggies withered because these gnats ate all the roots. I don’t recommend purchasing any plant products from this store, as they seem to have pest problems.

Bailey Price: Beautiful garden center that had everything I could have needed! Thanks so much to Eileen for working with me for about a half hour to pick all of the right plants and materials for what I was looking for! They turned out so nicely!

Ofelia Gaitan: hands down the best flowers in the area. I have been going to Johnson's for over two years and they always have top quality flowers. Their arrangements are always beautiful. I have experienced a few issues upon delivery of arrangements but they are quick to make correct their errors and thus why they deserve 5 stars. With all florist I think going to the the stores is the best route to go when placing an order as issues may arise upon delivery.

Madeline Klein: WOW! A MUST GO TO PLACE! There are two locations FYI; Johnsons Kensington is hands down amazing! I will definitely make a travel to this location! I am not the best at all with house plants; this young lady (apologize I completely forgot her name) she was about 25-maybe 30 short brown hair. Her knowledge was beyond anything I have ever experienced! This specific young lady was so warm and welcoming since I walked in (before I have noticed other employees on phones or other things "more important") this woman was so attentive from the beginning! re-potted a plant I thought would make it I'm still trying to keep the plant going but I learned so much and it may be in a much much smaller pot but it is BEAUTIFUL decorated! I purchased another house plant as well the customer service was so great. The young woman gave me many suggestions to what I would like and showed me photos of her own personal one and I was taken back as to how polite, patient, kind and not pushy to sell a plant that was not the best fit for me. I HAD THE BEST EXPERIENCE! The Owner Mr. Tom Johnson was there and for me personally it shows the dedication he has for his staff and the great business. Kensington Johnsons is THE PLACE TO GO!

Andrea: This place is a plant haven. I would recommend going here over any other shop. The products are high quality, staff is friendly and there is a large selection. I got two small house plants and the staff had such good recommendations for my situation.

J. D. Rosenzweig: Great local flower and plant store. Much better going here than a big box store. Excellent plants inside for gifts. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.

M B: Good selection of plants and supplies. However, the cashiers, particularly the younger cashiers, aren’t very friendly. I felt as though I were imposing on their precious time by having the audacity of being a customer. No smile or friendly “Hello” or “How may I help you” for a greeting. Instead, I received an irritated “Can I help you?” from not one but both cashiers. It wasn’t packed, so I really didn’t understand the seemingly irritated or exasperated attitude. If said cashiers don’t want to help anyone, there’s a solution—QUIT! And don’t hold a position where one has to interface with the public! Needless to say, I won’t be back. I’ll do my shopping via Amazon. At least that way, I’ll be able to save time, money, and not have to deal with abysmal customer service!

Chanpen Tee: There are a lot of plants foe indoors and outdoors. Staff is friendly.

Greenstreet Gardens of Virginia: what do users think?


Kerrin Nishimura: Wonderful selection of plants including natives. Very knowledgeable staff and the prices are reasonable. The quality of the plants is excellent. They put a lot of effort into their care so you never have to worry about getting inferior stock. They do a pumpkin patch in the fall and have a great little gift shop with lots of cute stuff. I love coming here because I can always find something new and interesting to buy.
Response: Thank you so much for your review and positive feedback! It really helps us tailor to the needs of our customers. Happy gardening 🌱 !

Kate Downs: Always well stocked , great deals, pleasant staff. Definitely a must visit for all your gardening needs. Great Xmas trees and poinsettias too when the season calls for it
Response: Thank you, Kate! We appreciate our customers and love a great review! We look forward to seeing you again!

Ahuva Battams: What a wonderful garden center. Lots of variety and lovely plants. Cam helped me repot my succulents and wow they look amazing. Happy happy plants. She was so nice and knowledgeable. I'll definitely be back!
Response: We are so glad you are happy with your repotting! We look forward to seeing you in the Gardens again!

Alisha R.: Thank you to all the staff for being so kind and helpful today, going above and beyond their job description. And the ficus they potted for me (graciously twice - I dropped it the first time) looks amazing in my living room.
Response: That’s fantastic! Thanks so much for your kind review and enjoy your Ficus!

Tailor Mayne: I’ve purchased many plants here over the years and my experience is always top tier. I love their house plants and they have the occasional rare table set up with all the goodies! I always stop by just to grab a plant with some character since they are at such a reasonable price or just for a peaceful walk around and look. Love this little gem hidden in Nova!

CB DCDiva: Tucked away and looking like a tiny hobbit hole, this nursery is much larger on the inside! With tons if options for inside and out, the plants were healthy and plentiful. The new veggie seedlings were in various sizes and good selection. Now parking? The tiniest parking lot offers free parking but it is hard to maneuver with lots of bagged products taking up spaces. However, if you need a variety of compost options, they have you covered.
Response: Thank you for your very nice review and your business. Have a great gardening season. Ray Greenstreet

Sarah Bennett: I just want to say this place is amazing. Their Christmas tree selection is beautiful. They have every size you could possibly want. We unfortunately had a leak from the re-usable stand we purchased and they even offered to come to our apartment and replace it for us! What amazing customer service. We will definitely be coming back in the spring in hopes to find some micro greens and other plants!
Response: Thanks for your kind review Sarah! Hope to see you again soon

Carolina Sarmiento N.: This is the best nursery ever!!! We love the people who work here. Everyone is very friendly and knowledgeable. They have beautiful flowers and the quality of their plants are excellent. We have never had a problem with any of the trees, perennials and annuals plants. We definitely recommend this place. Here are some pictures with their flowers in our townhouse patio.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind review Carolina! Happy Gardening!

Dan Solley: Had the absolute best afternoon picking out plants and flowers for our new flower box. As two novice green thumbs, we walked in clueless. But thanks to the awesome advice, guidance, and attention that was given by Scott, we walked out as complete experts. He helped us through the whole process, answering questions and teaching us and helping us pick out ideal plants for our situation. He literally spent our entire visit with us, up until and through the checkout process. I’m now a big Greenstreet fan, but an even bigger Scott fan!
Response: Thank you for your business and very nice review. Scott does a great job with customers and all his gardening knowledge. Have a great season. Ray Greenstreet.

Leah Jenika: Shopped here for years to purchase houseplants and to pay for them to be potted in my pots from home so I didn't have to purchase a bag of dirt that would eventually end up in my apt closet. Last year new staff refused to pot my chosen plant in my planter without a hole in it because my plant was not the ideal size. The first 2 times reluctantly did it but with a superior attitude and the third time they said they wouldn't do it. Some customer service wow! I appreciate recommendations for what is ideal but I don't understand refusing service. Owner said to come back and call him if needed because he understood that some people know how to not over water without a drainage hole, but that was my third time and I didn't want to try again with no guarantee of customer service. In fact, I'll betcha many people with ideal size plants and pots with holes are often overwatering their plants and killing them, which is what keeps you in business. So if you are the plant police go to everyone's house. My houseplants have always been healthy and last years. Used to be so relaxing and inviting to go there for my houseplants. I've never been so badly treated by any store let alone a garden center.

Anna Ramsey: Caruso Florist helped me out in a pinch! They were able to put together four beautiful table centerpieces for my wedding with only 3 weeks notice. I brought in the vases, told Steve my vision, and he/his team delivered! The flowers were gorgeous and my vases were very well taken care of. His prices are VERY reasonable for this area. I highly recommend calling Caruso's and talking to Steve about florals needed for any event! You won't regret it.
Response: Thank you so much, Anna! We're so glad to hear we could help you make your vision for your wedding come to life, and we're happy that you loved how the floral arrangements turned out. Congratulations again to you and your new spouse, and we wish you all the best! - Caruso Florist

Karen Swindell: I have been a customer of Caruso Florist for over 10 years and the flower arrangements are always beautiful! Caruso Florist customer service is awesome and they deliver to Capitol Heights, MD. l find ordering Caruso flower arrangements easy. Because I tell them the occasion and let the highly trained staff put together the most amazing flower arrangements. I spoke with the owner on several times and he offered good ideas. My family, friends, and co-workers love Caruso flower arrangements. Once I ordered an exotic flower arrangement which included the bird of paradise and my mother still talks about the flower arrangement. I highly recommend Caruso Florist.
Response: Thank you so much, Karen! It's always such a pleasure to work with you, and we're so happy to hear you always enjoy our floral products and services. We appreciate your loyalty, and we look forward to working with you again soon! - Caruso Florist & Flower Delivery

E C Wallman: I called on Saturday and spoke with a representative to place my "Birthday Balloons" order. The Balloons were pretty expensive...I had ordered balloons on Tuesday for delivery; these I was picking up. When I got there, I found that the young lady had placed my order incorrectly...hence why it was so expensive. While disappointed, because I thought I was pretty clear about what I wanted, I brought the balloons to my office. Today, I return to the office to find ALL of the latex balloons deflated, laying on the chair! It has been just 24 hours since I purchased these balloons--I would expect that these would stay inflated for at least a couple to few days. I am very disappointed...as these are a gift for someone who had a terrible "actual" birthday and I was trying to brighten his spirits--I don't think deflated balloons will do the trick! He is coming to my office on Tuesday to pick up these sad little balloons. I guess I will have our receptionist cut off the latex balloons and HOPEFULLY the Mylar balloons will still be inflated. Not what I would expect from Caruso.
Response: Hi. Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We're sorry to hear that the arrangement you received did not meet your expectations. We can confirm that the balloon bouquet you ordered was a mix of latex and mylar balloons, and while mylar balloons can last for days, latex ones can only last about 8 to 10 hours. We take pride in providing only top-quality products for your specific needs, and would have been more than happy to recommend another type of arrangement to better suit your needs. We hope this clears things up with you, and we hope we get a chance to provide you the excellent services and floral designs we are known for. Stay safe! -Caruso Florist

Ron Moses: For those with loved ones interred at Arlington, Caruso’s is a veteran owned florist with a very excellent record and quality, much better than any other in the area, and can do a regular or scheduled service to Arlington. I first found Caruso’s a year ago when we needed a florist quickly on a short notice to produce a number of bouquets for my father, MgySgt/SgtMaj Herbert Moses, who passed away Nov 5th 2020. Not only did they do an exemplary job, they did so with care and speed. It was such a great job, that I have a standing order of flowers to be delivered every two weeks to my father at Arlington. I was originally concerned that Arlington groundskeepers would remove the flowers after a few days and was super surprised to discover the flowers are still there after a week (see below). I’m not affiliated with Caruso, they don’t pay me anything, and they didn’t ask me to write a review. I just read the last guy’s review complaining about Latex balloons not lasting a weekend, and anyone with kiddos knows that they don’t last but a couple days esp when it’s cold out. Not fair of a review for a truly great florist (and not a balloon shop). Thank you so much everyone at Caruso’s for honoring my father with so much care.
Response: Hi, Ron! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. It is always a pleasure to help you with your floral needs for your father. We'll be sure to let the team know just how much you appreciated all their hard work. Thank you for your support and loyalty, and we hope to continue serving you the best way we can. - Caruso Florist

Geawna Hernandez: I ordered flowers for my grandma and her friend while they were on vacation in Washing DC. It was also harder on me since I've never been to the area let alone know anything about florist in the area. They made it SO EASY! Everything from placing the order, to delivery... was great! It showed up right on time and looked exactly like the picture I wanted. I would definitely recommend this place to any local or even a tourist like me.
Response: Hey Geawna, thank you so much for the rave review! It was our pleasure to help you pick out the perfect floral arrangement for your grandma and her friend, and we hope they loved it as much as we enjoyed making it for them. Thank you for trusting us, and if you ever need our assistance again in the future, feel free to contact us again. - Caruso Florist

Donna Williams: Caruso’s worked with me to create the perfect arrangement for my dear friend’s funeral. During a time when I was devastated by his passing, Rhonda was amazingly patient and assisted me in creating an arrangement that symbolized our relationship. Thank you!!
Response: Hi Donna, thank you so much for the kind review! It was our honor to help you during this difficult time. Stay safe, and we hope we can serve you in the future on happier occasions. - Caruso Florist

Sherry Swerdlow: I needed flowers in a hurry and this place didn’t disappoint! I ordered on a Friday night late, and they were delivered at noon on Saturday. They were even more beautiful than the photos on website. The recipient called me twice, once to thank me and say how gorgeous they were, and again the next day to say they were the most beautiful flowers she’s ever received!!
Response: Hey Sherry, thank you so much for the 5-star review! We're glad you had such a lovely experience with us. We appreciate your business, and we look forward to working with you again soon! - Caruso Florist

Linwood B Carter: Caruso Florist is dependable, reliable and consistently accurate. The gift basket I ordered was fresh and exactly as advertised. The delivery was prompt and executed during inclement weather. And as usual, I expeditiously received email confirmation of the delivery. I will continue to use Caruso Florist because of their outstanding service.
Response: Hi there! Thank you so much for your 5-star review. It’s the kind of service we always aim for and we’re really pleased we met all your expectations. We look forward to serving you again soon. - Caruso Florist

Sean McCain: Ordered florals for a corporate event and they were gorgeous! So many guests commented on them and the florist was easy to work with. Their prices were reasonable and delivery to the venue was on-time. I will definitely be using them again when I'm doing another event in DC.
Response: Hey Sean, thank you so much for the 5-star review! We're glad you had such a lovely experience with us. We appreciate your business, and we look forward to working with you again soon! - Caruso Florist

Ellen McCrea: Update with further info: Order Info: Order # 66522 Received confirmation email from Caruso Florist and Flowers The quick delivery and quality of the flowers were excellent. However I specifically ordered the Blue Sapphire Deluxe because of the blue and white flowers advertised as they were for a Johns Hopkins University graduate. Unfortunately there were NO blue flowers in the arrangement at all. I am unable to attend my daughter's graduation next week because I was suddenly called to AZ to care for my terminally ill mother. I'm sad that I can't be there to celebrate my daughter's hard work and to have the flowers be wrong was so disappointing.
Response: Hi Ellen, thank you for taking the time to raise your concerns with us. We're very sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience with your floral order. Upon checking with our team, however, our records do not show any orders with your name as the sender or recipient. If this was made through a 3rd party order gatherer or florist, then it would have come with instructions of the order request and we would follow those instructions or relay information that we do not have the flowers requested. We hope this clears things up for you. We take customer feedback and satisfaction very seriously, and we would love to know more about your order and experience so we can make things right for you. Please feel free to give us a call at your earliest convenience so we can discuss the situation further. Thank you, and we hope we hear from you soon. - Caruso Florist

House of Flowers: what do users think?


SHEENA BAILEY WILKERSO: This place is absolutely lovely. They have a variety of many plants and flowers. From the moment I stepped into the store the employees greeted me and they met my need. Honestly, the store is so comforting and so is the service here. It was worth every penny and I definitely will be back!!! The flowers are sooo beautiful; I just know my mom will love them
Response: Thank you so much Sheena! It was such a pleasure to create your bouquets :)!

Tori S: House of Flowers does it all - from minimalist bouquets to vases of huge, whimsical flowers and greens, I always know I'm getting something completely custom each time. Their flowers also last AWHILE with a little home care! I really couldn't recommend a better flower shop in the DC area.

sherry zion: Had the best professional yet friendly experience ever! Michael and Mary are so friendly, they made me this beautiful vase with colorful and gorgeous flower arrangement for a dinner. It was last minute and they did it so elegantly yet so fast. Would be back again soon

SHAUN BAKER: M and M Michael and Mary are phenomenal. I came to House of Flowers to get birthday flowers for my dear friend Wendy. Beautiful tulip arrangement!! Go see them often! They’re the best! Thank you Michael and Mary! I will be back... Shaun

Owen Benons: Mary is incredible and extremely sweet and accommodating. The selection of flowers is top notch. They were able to expedite my order. The flower selection is second to none and the house dog is adorable. What a great place 10/10 would recommend, competitive pricing as well tell them Owen sent you!

barcemayne11: My go-to flower shop that never ceases to amaze me with their beautiful bouquets. I’m thankful for their amazing staff and the work they do. Mary is a sweetheart and gives the best costumer service while Michael and Uma are true artists! All I have to do is tell them the occasion and my budget and they create the most beautiful works of art. Gentlemen, make the right decision and get your significant others an arrangements from House of Flowers. You’re supporting a local business and you’ll be blown away

Jennifer L: Had a last-minute mission to find a boutonniere for my daughter’s prom date, and called House of Flowers since it was around the corner from my office. They could not have been nicer and were so happy to make one for me in practically no time - and it was absolutely stunning! I will definitely be ordering flowers from them in the future.

Jessica Kidane: This place has been a lifesaver for me the last few weeks when I needed to grab quick, last minute gifts. Their chocolate selection is very good and they make beautiful arrangements. Most of all, their customer service is top notch. They once delivered a last minute arrangement on Valentine’s Day for my boss’s wife with detailed instructions. They saved the day (not to mention a tremendous headache on my end) and followed the instructions to the letter. I’ve never been disappointed with them!

Amanda Cassidy: The staff at House of Flowers was incredibly patient and knowledgeable about their flowers. They walked me through different price points and arrangements, and made sure I had what I wanted at a great price when I left. Highly recommend!

J. Madison: Mary was absolutely wonderful waking me through selecting a beautiful arrangement for my Valentines Day plan. The pic below is just a starter. We’ve made arrangements to go big for actual V-Day. Thx so much!

Lee's Flower And Card Shop Inc: what do users think?


Mike Hess: Ordered a bouquet online, delivered to our building, for my wife's birthday. It looks amazing! The flowers are exactly what I selected and the vase is solid as well. I'm very happy with the purchase.

Anthony Montgomery: Was in D.C. to attend an amazing party. One of the standouts about the party were the flowers. As I wanted to send the host some flowers as a thank you, I decided to go to Lee's Flower Shop. My friend/host and I both thought the flowers were simple, elegant and beautiful.

Sebastian L. Cooper: Ordered a small arrangement as my partner started as a teacher in a new school. Gave a base flower and some colors and they NAILED THE REST. It was beautiful and my partner was elated! It was even completed way before I was scheduled to pick it up and resting in a fridge. Excellent service and will be using them again!

Samantha Tausendschoen: We ordered the white rose arrangement and used the flowers for our bouquets and the greenery for our tables. It looked fabulous! The roses were big and gorgeous, and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Jacob Rosenbacher: Hurts me to put this business on blast — it’s local and in a difficult industry. Moreover, this specific business has overcome generification. However, I had the worst flower shop experience of my life here. I waited to speak to a sales associate and I was mocked when I gave my description of the flowers. Not once, not twice, but three times. The colors I was looking for “earthy tones” are “exactly what all flowers” look like… fair. However, I was pretty understanding but it was said very harshly and not humorously. It was nothing but pretentious especially from this preppy older white dude in a cardigan. I then tried to describe it again, “something very natural looking and duller tones”. I was unceremoniously met with “all flowers are natural”… thanks dude. Suffice to say it was rude, 100 dollars for a smaller bouquet, and the selection was terrible compared to all other flower shops I’ve visited. Btw to the guy who reads this, I’ve walked into a dozen other flower shops… no one else thinks this is a poor description.
Response: We are so very sorry to learn of your unpleasant experience and will definitely get to the bottom of this! This is unacceptable. Thank you for calling it to our attention.

Mieko Hobbs: Beautiful flowers, great service, and quick shipping. I will be ordering from Lee’s again!

Joanna Obuzor: I purchased flowers for my friend's birthday. She never received the flowers. Lee's said they were delivered; she works from home and nothing came that day. When I called to let them know, no refund was offered. I'm out over $100 and my friend didn't get the gift.

Daria Kirilenko: Nice people and pretty flowers. But the peonies were $16 a stem. Still decided to treat myself and got a dozen. Flowers sadly lasted only 2 and a half days and that’s with me cutting the stems and changing the water. Just sad…

Parker Asmann: Lovely flower shop that’s been around for decades. Grade-A experience. I’d recommend anyone looking for flowers and a beautiful bouquet to go to Lee’s. I also picked up a nice candle and card to accompany the bouquet. Wonderful service as well. I had a great chat with the woman working.

Maria Skirk: Disappointed with the quality of flowers and choice of greenery in my bouquet. No taste. Not worth the money.

Minnesota Florist: what do users think?


Christopher Young: I called this florist on Thursday evening (12-16-21), after getting the funeral service church address for the following morning! I’m offering a three (3) star review because they did in fact deliver the flowers and our loved one received them. The real reason for the three stars is based on the final floral arrangement. I’ll post pictures and let you all decide if this was a $130 arrangement!! I think this was purchased at a local Harris Tetter and dropped off at the church, LOL. At the end of the day, I’m guessing it was the thought…haha. Whew! I’ve sent flowers for less and the design, the attention to detail was stunning (of course, at the hands of another florist)!!! Won’t call this florist again. Based on my conversation with the elder who answered, I don’t think they read these reviews and it’s obvious they don’t care!! I’m just saying…but where else could I have vented? I don’t even reside in the DC METRO area, but I needed flowers sent at the last minute. Ok, blessings to all on sending flowers.

Carvangeline Miller: I ordered flowers for someone special to me for their birthday. I called an placed the order by phone. Didn't know what kind of arrangements I wanted I just trust that it would be beautiful. When I saw the arrangements it was breathtaking. It was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you everything. Carvangeline

Camille Adebayo: If I could give a no star rating I would. Besides the flowers being delivered at 9:55 p.m. when my husband was told that they would arrive before noon for our anniversary the flowers look wilted after 3 days and not a full 72 hours since being delivered. My husband called several times throughout the day and was told that they were out for delivery. No wonder they're wilted. I've called to see if a refund or new arrangement can be sent but no one answers the phone. Don't spend your money here!

S L: This is THE WORSE FLOWER SHOP EVER with HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. My grandmother paid to have a flower arrangement done and delivered on March 1, 2022... the day before my grandfather's funeral to ensure it arrived on time. It DID NOT. On the day of (March 2, 2022) we got there early and there was no flower arrangement. My grandmother called to inquire and they were very rude to her from the start. Yelling saying ma'am it was delivered. She had them on speaker phone. I took the phone to handle it privately because people were starting to arrive and my grandmother was getting upset. Rightfully so, I mean she was at her husband's funeral and the lady had a nasty attitude. Absolutely NO conpassion. They couldn't get in touch with the delivery guy and did not have a clue of his whereabouts. The guy finally delivered the arrangement AFTER the service had started and people were in line. It was a nice arrangement.. the bow was a little wrinkled. SAVE YOURSELF the trouble and GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.

Sherry S. Ellis: I'm very pleased that I was able to reach this store for a same day rush order and it turned out just beautiful! I called when the clock hit 8am and they took my order and delivered by 10am. I am forever grateful for the service provided. Due to the lack of follow up communication and abruptness on the phone, I can't rate them any higher.

Tuesde Hines: I have never seen a flower shop you go in trash every were one lady was lay back in a recliner with a blanket & the other was sitting throwing stems on floor I ask for a bit k to look through very harsh the woman ask what you looking for I reply do you have a book she reply tell me what you want they try to charge me 70 dollars for a teddy bear small at that a rap around flower is what they call it No card No Vase I just bought the flowers $45 for it but then she said tax $47 Never again and unprofessional to me to had been there for 45years

Ama R.: I needed a Bouquet done last minute on a Sunday and delivered that same day.I decided to go with them and I don’t regret my decision one bit. The Bouquet was beautiful and was delivered in a timely manner. Everytime I called someone answered & was very nice. Thanks again! I will be returning when in your area.

Rodney Houston: I absolutely love this place!! My go to place for flowers for years. The owner is so accommodating and I think they're open 7 days a week. Never had a complaint or any issues ever. Deliveries always made when I requested within the time frame. Flowers are fresh and will last a while. The aroma from a rose arrangement will fill a banquet hall for days.

LaVanda Gaskins: I love to support black businesses but this company right here is horrible. Why they been in business for so long is absurd. I ordered flowers and paid in full for a funeral. First of all they delivered them in the middle of the service and not only that I ordered two different sets and only one was delivered. After the funeral when I called to let them know they was late and that they didn’t send my other set of flowers the owner in which lies to me and told me she was the Manager informed me there were no refunds! How when I didn’t receive what I paid for. After informing the owner that I would dispute it with my bank if she didn’t refund my card! Please take yur business elsewhere because when you already dealing with a death you don’t wanna have to deal with people and businesses like this.

Moleka Thomas-lee: I have had a bad experience the last three times I've given them my business. This was the last straw. They have been late delivering my last three arrangements. Two were for my nephews' funerals and one for a cousin's funeral. I've given this florist my business because they are black owned and very polite, but this is unprofessional. I paid $187 for my service and they showed up after the funeral. The owner only wanted to send me a free arrangement instead of refunding my money. I have to find another

Johnson's Florist and Garden Centers: what do users think?


Pat S: This was my first trip here after my neighbor recommended it and it is really great! An outstanding selection of plants at very reasonable prices. I was looking for 2 nice Easter plants and I was able to get both for less than $30! It's my new go-to place for flowers and plants.

Sarah Brown: I was not prepared for the huge variety of happy plants awaiting me at Johnson's Olney location! I've visited their Kensington shop many times for plants and accessories (also lovely), but the Olney location offers so many more plants and planting items. I picked up several colorful annuals for spring plantings at the Olney location, but I may have to go back for a Mayapple (!) or two. I was very excited to see the houseplant selection at Olney. They keep a variety of sizes of the houseplants that I had been seeking (including a couple size.pots of Crotons of different varieties). I really wish I had known about this location sooner - I would have found the house plants I wanted here! Staff is also friendly and personable, and I always appreciate that. I'm looking forward to shopping here again in the future. I'll still visit the Kensington location occasionally as it's a bit closer to home, but I'll look forward to Olney visits, as well!

Blair Wright: Really good garden center, most of the garden centers in this area have closed and this is one of the better ones that had remained open

Lawrence Roffee: Helpful staff. Well stocked. Very pleasant experience

Matt Pflieger: Do NOT buy a Christmas tree here. Zero customer service and outrageous prices (over $170 for sub par trees). This place has really gone downhill. Prices have continued to go up, yet selection and customer service has dropped significantly. We have been regulars of Johnson's for YEARS. Not anymore

Sarah McCaines: Terrible place to shop. I used to come here often until recently where they just have new staffing constantly and none of the staff Is actually knowledgeable anymore. I was told to “read a book” and purchase it at a local library because they couldn’t help me. On multiple occasions I was not even greeted at the door of entry and some of the staff have been reluctant to even talk to us. I’m very disappointed, it used to be a lovely place. They do not even have a lot of product and when asked about it I was just given a shrug. In the decor region of the store, I have noticed items that have been around for awhile. I had been coming for years, but I am just shocked by the low quality of upkeep especially since some items are covered in cobwebs or dust or genuinely chipped or broken. Again, when I brought it to the staffs attention, they merely offered me a 10% discount. A lot of items did not have prices on them so when I went up to the counter to ask for a price, it took them nearly 15 minutes and at this point I had given up. I was told the item had been there for a while but if it had been there for awhile it should have had a price. I have had more problems than anything else the last few times that I have been and I will have to say I will no longer be shopping at johnsons. It is more of a hassle lately and a disappointment.

Roli Good: My visit to Johnson's Florist and Garden Center was very refreshing. I was looking for a particular plant as a sympathy gift and this was my first time there. Once I found the plant, Grace and Sylvia were super helpful. They potted the plant, wrapped it really nicely, placed it in a box, and put a bow on it without me having to ask. They knew it was a gift and made every effort to make it look pretty and presentable. They were very attentive and thoughtful. It's ALWAYS refreshing when one receives EXCELLENT customer service. Thank you ladies. Your help was greatly appreciated. Stay EXCELLENT 🙂 I now have a place to go when I'm looking to purchase a plant or some flowers.🙂

Erin O'Prey: Just had a wonderful experience with both the customer service and floral professionalism at Johnson's in Olney. They were "out of stock" on-line but managed to find a creative work around for a Christmas centrepiece that was a great treat for Holiday Dinner. Thanks for the special effort, it was appreciated, especially by my sister who is recovering from surgery...

Nancy Chiles Shaffer: I'm immunosuppressed and so I've been reliant on delivery services for most items during the current pandemic. A friend helped me get some herbs from one of the big name home improvement stores and they were duds. I potted them in April and most have died. I wanted to try again and came across Johnson's. I am so impressed! The delivery came faster than I expected and the quality is fantastic! I also appreciated the customer service I received. Thank you so much!

jan suit: This nursery has a wonderful gift shop! They have a lot of Christmas decor marked down for anyone who wants it! Last fall I was pleased to be able to purchase some beautiful chrysanthemum plants

Lauren's Garden Service & Native Plant Nursery: what do users think?


Danielle Pientka (DIYDanielle): Lovely place with native plants... It's in really beautiful area that's shady and there's a couple of picnic tables. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful.
Response: Aww- thanks so much for coming out!

Joel Richon: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueLauren worked with us to create a design incorporating everything we wanted. The crew was courteous and efficient. The mix of plants, and where they were placed has been great. We are really enjoying the variety in shapes, sizes, colors, and flowering schedule.Services: Garden design, Green landscaping
Response: Thanks so much Mr Richon. We really enjoyed working on your lovely piece of property. I've been hoping the new plantings put on a nice show for you this spring! ~Lauren

Donut Maker: Did not have a good experience overall - as some others reviews and responses have noted, they are overly busy which leads to poor communication and zero customer follow-up, because they simply don't have time. We had a few thousand dollar garden installed, and the owner said they would be there on Day 1 to ensure the installers got the layout right amongst other things, but then she didn't show up. Why? Too busy. This led to multiple issues with the installers asking us questions for which we hired Lauren to take care of, and problems with the installers not understanding things and multiple miscommunications. We were also disappointed with the warranty of the plants, as it's the worst I've ever seen in the garden business (they say they will "split the costs" of dead plants by having the customer come to their nursery and pay wholesale costs for the plants and have to install them themselves - I still can't fathom how that is "splitting the cost" - this literally costs them nothing, and costs the customer the price of the plant, the travel to the nursery, and the labor to install). We lost multiple plants in the first 9 months (some didn't look in good condition to begin with on Day 1) despite caring for them meticulously following the instructions. The owner states in multiple responses that they get hundreds of requests, and can only do like 8 in a week. If that's the case - it should be a slam dunk to get an investor(s) on board and open up more nurseries and hire more staff to fix the issues and take care of the business appropriately. Being busy is a good thing, but not when it's so overwhelming and you simply can't take care of customers the right way, especially during and after installations. Service: Garden design
Response: I'm sorry to hear of your disappointment. Our plant guarantee is stated on all of our paperwork from estimate to installation. It sounds like many things went wrong with your project and I am so sorry to hear that. If you email us (can't tell who you are here) we are happy to review what happened and help as best we can on our end! It's fairly common for the project manager to do the original site visit and then develop a design and have the install crew put it in. We are in communication throughout the entire day with the crew while they install. They text the original designer while they are working on the project. In terms of getting investors- we are not interested in growing to that level of business. If we scale too much too fast then we lose a handle on quality. We're a team of plant enthusiasts doing our best! Can't say it's always perfect but we sure aim for it! Email us directly so we can help! Thanks, Lauren

Leslie Young: I couldn't be happier with the design process, install, and result. I have been putting off landscaping my back yard for years, thinking I could do it myself. Lauren came up with a plan that reflects exactly what I want and was able to work with me to fit my budget. I wanted a bluestone/grass patio off of my deck and the cost came in higher than budget; Lauren proposed irregular flagstone rather than bluestone which turned out to be much better for our overall design and fit my budget. The install crew was wonderful, very professional, friendly, and good communication. In addition to excellent work, they left everything neater and cleaner than they found it. I thought I would have to wait until spring, but they fit me into their fall schedule, so the view from my windows is much nicer than it was before and I can't wait to see everything greened up and blooming in the spring! Services: Yard work , Installation
Response: Awww- thanks so much! We had a lovely time working in your backyard and hope you enjoy your new native plant garden and patio! Looking forward to working together next spring!

Erin L: Enjoyable socially distant shoppers for native plants. Owners were friendly and knowledgeable,and their pets made sure to greet us personally whole the humans socially distances. (The owners were considerate about the pets and offered to put them inside of any of the customers were uncomfortable. I found a the plants I was looking for and then some.
Response: Thanks for stopping by- hope you are enjoying your plants! Lauren

Kathy Tuckey: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ResponsivenessLauren's Garden's crew installed two rain gardens for us this spring. They did a great job during a difficult time for everyone (pandemic). They were professional and worked tirelessly. The gardens are flourishing and doing their job with all the rain gutter run off we've had this spring!
Response: Thanks so much Kathy! I love that you got not 1 but 2 rain gardens! You are definitely helping to clean local waterways!

Jane Redmond: I called Lauren's Garden Service last March. Lauren personally came to my house in Anne Arundel County to see my yard and hear my thoughts on improving the landscaping. She provided a drawing of the design using all native plants. The installation crew came on time and were polite and courteous. They consulted with me about moving certain plants and the best options for plant placement. After the installation, I contacted Lauren and the team on a few occasions for advice on some of the plants' health in the heat of the summer. Each time, Lauren and the staff have been most helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend Lauren and her team. Service: Installation
Response: Thanks Jane! We enjoyed your project. We would love to see a photo!

Autumn Carter: They have the best website around and only offer native plants. This is important for Maryland's ecosystem, so please choose them for all your plant needs. It took some work to get someone to serve us, but once we had someone, we received great help (we think they are used to online orders and pickups instead of walk in customers due to COVID). All the plants have the same signs that can be found online which makes shopping very helpful. We will be back and we will recommend this nursery to everyone looking to upgrade their gardens.
Response: Thanks so much for coming in Autumn! Sorry it took us awhile to get to you! Our nursery assistant had a knee injury at that time so we had a bit of a juggling act to cover the nursery temporarily! Thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you in the spring!

Evan Vaeth: Put in a quote for some Butterfly weed plants, got a response quickly about them. Plants were then available for pick-up shortly after. Meadowside pick-up was quick and the plants were as healthy looking as I hoped they'd be. EDIT: Just wanted to share photos of them from a few weeks back. They shot up and flowered quite a lot!
Response: Thanks so much Evan- I hope you are enjoying your plants!

Heidi Brubaker: I really enjoyed working with Lauren's Garden services. We had a bit of a tough ask to find plants for. We wanted a backyard that provided natural habitats for birds and bees, especially fall/winter for birds, while also providing July/August blooms for our firepit area. She had great ideas and was able to provide substitutions for the few I was not enamored with. When staff came to plant, they were friendly, tidy - cleaned up everything, they checked in with me on plantings and moved Items I requested moved, all were clearly plant nerds.
Response: Thanks so much Heidi- it was a pleasure!

Meadows Farms Nurseries and Landscape: what do users think?


Danica Jordan: One of my favorite nurseries. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great verity of plants. All season green house.
Response: Thank you, Danica!

CB DCDiva: Medium sized garden center tucked off of above Rte 198 in Burtonsville, this nursery is very well laid out with offerings of trees, shrubs and plants. The site also offers unique annual offerings and a large array of flowering perennials. The free VIP club offers sale prices for most plants on-site and is worth joining. For landscaping purposes there are lots of options in river and drainage rocks, mulch and Bags of soil. Late season perennials were priced to move and very affordable. The site offers hand sanitizer stations and everyone wears masks on the staff. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Definitely planning to return!
Response: Thank you for your review and the kind words. We really appreciate it! :-) Looking forward to seeing you again in the future.

Sandra Holt: This was my second time shopping here and the first time, the staff was very helpful but the second time, the staff was unhelpful and rude. A staff member was ringing up a customer so I patiently waited for her to finish so that I could ask her a question. After standing there for a few minutes, a coworker walked up to her at the same time that the customer was leaving and started chit chatting. Because I’ve been standing there for a while and the original staff member knew that, I said excuse me and I asked her my question. I guess she didn’t like that I was interrupting her chitchat because she gave me barely an answer and had a lot of attitude to go with it. Anyway, I just walked out. I won’t shop at a place where I feel like the staff is doing me a favor by helping me and giving me attitude on top of it is too much.
Response: Sandra, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review and alerting me that our customer experience didn't live up to our goals and training. I will use this review as an opportunity to coach our staff and get better. I am very sorry that you had a poor experience. I hope you will visit us again and give us a chance to earn a more positive rating. Sincerely, Jay Meadows, Owner

Gary R: Overall, a positive experience. Each plant has a helpful placard describing how big each plant will grow, common uses, etc. After allowing us some time to browse, a staff member offered to help us and made knowledgeable suggestions once we shared our need. Lost one star because the entrance is hard to see -- I almost overshot.
Response: Thank you, Gary! We'll work on trying to make the entrance a little more noticeable.

Keith C: Great natural experience, thanks Tyler-Keith C@Officiallykeithc
Response: Thank you, Keith!

Mac C: Tons of house plants! I love it here!The team is also pretty knowledgeable on products and plant care!Thank you guys for making my first visit, certainly not last, a great one.
Response: Thank you, Mac! We look forward to seeing you again in the future!

Nicalena Neary: Meadow Farm Nursery in Burtonsville MD is a full service garden center. They carry a full selection of Trees, bushes, annuals and perennials. The staff is helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this business.
Response: Thank you, Nicalena!

Julie Hildebrand: Our church got Christmas poinsettias from Meadows Farms Burtonsville for the first time this year. Holly and Donna were so nice and very helpful with the ordering process. The poinsettias were delivered on time. The plants themselves were gorgeous! We got many compliments on how beautiful they were. I look forward to ordering from Meadows Farms again.
Response: Thank you for the review and for your kind words, Julie. We're happy to hear that your poinsettia order worked out well and they were a big hit at your church. We look forward to being your poinsettia headquarters in the future! :-)

Aimee Delvecchio: I gave this a 5 star review a year ago because they did excellent work and I still feel that overall they do a good job. Unfortunately, I just had a bad experience with them. I have used Meadows Farms several times for creating landscape design and planting. I'm sure it was a one off but the way the customer service handled it was not satisfactory. I I was told conflicting info and regarding a warranty issue was offered a replacement " within size range". Not the same size I paid for but half the size. I'm hoping that because of covid and supply issues this is just a isolated incident. 3/17/22 update, had emerald green arbovitae replacement and the size was exactly same size. Very happy.
Response: Thank you, Aimee!

Sarah: 10/19 Update to say that they do have excellent customer service. Will be back to give them a try again next spring. Really would to give this place a high rating, but the blueberry bush I purchased there this summer is already dying. I'm not new to gardening, and have been consistent with the proper care (I have prev. experience with this type of blueberry bush before).
Response: Thank you for your review, Sarah. There is always a chance that newly purchased plants may fail. It's not a normal occurrence, but it does happen. We do offer a warranty on any woody trees and shrubs purchased, so if there are problems with the blueberry bush you purchased, please give us a call or stop in and see us and we can see what's going on.

Patuxent Nursery: what do users think?


Olivia S.O: Best nursery I’ve ever been to. Customer service is absolutely incredible, they’re happy to help + they know their stuff AND my favorite thing? When they don’t, they CHECK. No need to act like you know every single detail on every single plant, and having us customers deal with the consequences. Abby helped me pick a rubber tree plant and an aloe plant, and gave me shipping information on when I can come back for a snake plant. She also gave me a ton of information on each, types of planters, and some extra info for my stubborn calethea medallion at home. Even went outside to get me a cart when my plants became too much for my arms. Leanne was super sweet, showed me a rare plant they have coming in, and helped where she could and brought Abby over to me because she was in a different department. There was a gentleman who was walking around loading things, saw I had a rubber tree plant in my cart and just gave me a bunch of helpful information. You can tell these people love their jobs, their coworkers, and genuinely love to help. It’s refreshing!! I’m already plotting on a few more plants so I can go back!

Alicia Anderson: I have shopped here for at least 10 years. Every season I look forward to my trip here..sometime several times per season…I purchase with the understanding that I get Quality and Service. This Christmas I purchase 3 small beautiful holiday plants. In less than 9 days after caring as instructed, the plants began to die. I brought them back to the store only to be told that they cannot be exchanged. No exceptions, especially with me not having my receipt yet they were aware that I had recently purchased a Christmas tree and not certain why both were not in the system. I purchase from this store and I knowingly overpay because I presume that I have a quality guarantee that I would not get elsewhere. Not the case! This is not a store that is committed to longevity and quality service. I will no longer make a commitment to shop here first. I will bring my money to a establishments that’s more connected with service and guaranteed quality not just getting a sale
Response: Hello, thank you for letting us know what happened and we are sorry that your experience with us was not satisfactory. When it comes to returning plants, we print our policy on our receipts at checkout. For Annuals, including our Poinsettias, due to their fragile nature we do not return or replace these items. We also require a receipt, or a purchase to be made under a member account in order to retrieve purchasing history. We strive to find satisfactory compromises with all our customers, and if this was not the case in your experience we would like to make it right. Please email us at custserv@patuxentnursery.com, we would like to discuss this further with you.

Stacy Hawkins: 1st time here was amazing. The sales associate Cat helped me with everything I needed to know and also with things I didn't know. I went to days in a row, and I will be back next week to purchase more plant babies

Kay Koenig: Great store. Good prices. Good quality on products. Ms. Karen helped us again and she is absolutely amazing. Extremely knowledgeable and will "bend over backwards" to assist you. Very personable which makes the shopping experience great. Employees like her are valuable. That's why we keep coming back multiple times a season. Well done!
Response: Thank you for the kinds words!

Ashley Robertson: My friends know I love plant nurseries. One friend taking on a big landscape project asked me to recommend a nursery near DC, with fair prices, a wide selection, and knowledgable staff. I immediately recommended Patuxent. And they did not let us down. We were helped by Gabby who knew the best outdoor plants for my friend’s waterlogged yard. My friend wanted to attract butterflies and Gabby showed us the options for those as well. Several other staff members helped us protect and load up her truck with her selection. I was especially impressed because it started raining while we were shopping and Gabby grabbed her raincoat and kept on showing us around...well my friend around. I went inside the garden center to keep dry 😂. After picking her outdoor plants my friend had a question about an indoor plant that was dying and Gabby directed us to an indoor plant expert! By the end, my friend was raving about the stellar service and I was so glad to have converted another friend into a nursery lover! Thanks Patuxent!

Witchman: Fantastic customer serice and great selection!! I was looking for a half yard of topsoil, which some nurseries wont do. I sent an email and they promptly replied. She said they do and gave me the price. Checkout was quick and the loader operator was on point. Five stars all day long!

Angelica Swon: LOVE this nursery. They always have whatever I'm looking for. You can get all kinds of plants here. Trees, shrubs, flowers, indoor plants, herbs, literally everything. They also have cats that catch mice for them, which is adorable. Reasonably priced with friendly staff, this is your one-stop shop for all things garden!
Response: Thank you for your kind words!

Caren Raphael: The manager name Lisa G was very rude! I could hear her in the radio. She was giving the cashier the feedback thinking i was not hearing.. before she even know the facts she said the answer is NO! While shouting. When i asked to speak to her she refused to come said she is working worth a cashier. I said I will wait.. she told the cashier again in the radio rudely “she will wait a while then!!! I said politely that is fine. Then she said she wont come via radio… At this time her rudeness was out of control.. the cashiers told her “she can hear you” .. In few mins she showed up already saying no with no questions asked. Even the gentleman who was there who was a reasonable person who explained that the plant was planted and I have an account the lady proceeded to be rude and decided to win rather than doing the right thing. We spent $600 and exchanging the plant which dies for $20 was what brought all this!! This is beyond bad customer service.. i have never got this type of treatment anywhere!!!!
Response: Thank you for bringing this to our attention. While Lisa and the other managers involved were defending policy, it is our understanding that they were asked to escalate the situation to upper management and to wait before making any calls; we appreciate your patience since they were not able to make a decision in the moment. After review, while Lisa was not the manager on the radio it was someone else and they did so in a way that we do not train, condone or recommend, and we are sorry for your experience. We have your information and we will reach out to you if anything changes.

Laura Kowal: Love this place, their variety is the best in the area and we can always find what we are looking for. Would be nice to have more helpful signs to know where things are but it's worth looking around. Great selection of large and small pots too!!

Stunna Daren: They have a wide variety of plants…bought some black mulch which the landscapers says was good quality. A little more expensive, but you do get some warranty on the expensive plants. Also, the manager will personally assist you with questions the staff are not able to. Which is understandable, not all the staff can be highly knowledgeable in plants and shrubs.

Bloomers Home & Garden Center: what do users think?


Mark Smith: Bloomers has been around for over 30 years and they have the experience that big box stores don't. You will pay a little more but there is a bigger selection of plants, they are healthier, and the staff is always nearby to help or answer any questions. They do have sales quite often and they put flyers in local papers so you can look for good deals. In addition to all types of garden plants and supplies, they also have water garden supplies and home and holiday gifts.

Nichole Oxendine: They are a great nursery! I have a gazillion plants from rare plants that cost 100's to cheap 2$ plants. No matter what tho they always have the hard to find soil amendments that you normally have to buy online. They carry Espoma Brand which us what I prefer cause it's organic. Their pages are also always healthy and fair priced I've bought 16 plant's in total from them, they are all anyone and healthy. I definitely recommend this place.

Sam Bergere: Nothing but a great experience at Bloomers! The staff is very knowledgeable about the plants and offer advice for what would be best for your property. The landscaping service they offer is also great!

David Houck: Bloomer's is the best. They have been helping me with my lawn and garden needs since 2000. Just bought a new house. Their advice and products have helped me transform my front and backyard.

Pugglesrule Dotcom: I always buy my vegetable plants and flower flats from Bloomers. Everything is well taken care of and great quality. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Allison Pierson: Nice selection of pansies in all kinds of colors, plugs of herbs including lots of different kinds of mints, basil, oregano, etc. Peas, lettuce, kale, strawberries, lots of amendments for soil and Bumper Crop soil bags, bird section with feeders and food, cute mini containers.

Debbie Roach: I love Bloomers! All of the plants there are beautiful and there are so many options to choose from. The staff is friendly and always there to help.

dize mal: I love this place. Have been coming for years. The plants are always healthy. They have unique decorative items, also.

Peg Urban: I have shopped there 3 times in the last month or so. Always have to limit my purchases ( oh it is so hard to do!). Best potting soil and garden soil along with the flowers and plants.

B S: Their plants are infested with mites which killed my bushes and all they did was try to sell me more. Entire job done by poor immigrant laborers , I felt so bad for them. Bloomers really needs to be reported and shut down. smh
Response: I'm sorry you must be thinking of someone else?? We do not have an immigrant work force only my son and one Nursery Crew member. Bloomers warrantee covers all woody plant purchases. If a plant should die a credit of amount is put toward a replacement. Bloomers provides plants in excellent thriving health at the time of purchase, it is the customers responsibility to make them thrive. Could the mites have come from your yard? Was what we were trying to "sell" you was an insecticide to cure the problem?

She Loves Me Eckington: what do users think?


Austin Graff: A beloved local woman-owned business, this location in Eckington is their main warehouse/shop. Inside new development, the space is industrial and spacious. The shop is beautifully arranged with flowers (fresh and dried), plants, jewelry and other items for sale. The owner is very friendly and willing to guide you around the shop. We bought flowers from one of their location and they lasted for two weeks- way longer than any other shop in the city!

Dana Kappel: She Loves Me is such a lovely flower shop! I live very close to the store and was so excited when it opened! The aesthetic of the store is amazing, and I really love the more whimsical and flowly take that they have on their floral arrangements. I took the Flower Arranging Basics class over the weekend. It was such nice and enjoyable way to spend a Sunday! I would highly recommend the shop and class and can't wait to go again :)

Paula Porto: The Flower Arranging Basics Workshop was so much fun! Holley and everyone at She Loves Me welcomed our group with open arms. This was such a fun way to spend Happy Hour and we hope to be back soon!

Julie Thompson: I had a great experience using She Loves Me for our elopement and party. It was super seamless, and the flowers we received were also gorgeous and really added to our big day.

Kelsey Reese: Holley is incredibly knowledgeable about all things flowers! I learned so much from her at the workshop and tips from the trade that I can use in the future. I can’t wait to take another workshop in the future!! Thank you, Holley!

Tiffany Balmer: Thanks so much! for being amazing!!! the a la carte options are perfect and super helpful for last minute events. Guests were begging to take them home. Always great working with you all!!! thanks!!
Response: Yayayayyyy we had the most fun making these. We love working with you and hope to collaborate again soon! xo

Jan Lazny: We sent flowers from your shop to our daughter. Excellent flowers and excellent customer service!!! We would highly recommend your shop!

Rachel Sinderbrand: Love this place! Very happy to have their cheery storefront in our neighborhood. Looking forward to taking a class here as well.

Alexandra M. Dickinson: Easy delivery, beautiful bouquet. My absolute go to.

Natty Garden: what do users think?


E O: Apologies for the blurry photos. I really enjoyed speaking with the staff. He helped me understand the best setting for the plants I was considering. You could tell he was busy but at the same time cares about the craft, and ensuring customers leave informed.

Mr. Shillington: Stop in with a friend to check them out. I about to go back to pickup for my herbs garden. Great location but it’s difficult for parking.

Bryan Petcoff: I read some reviews of this place to make sure they didn't have a history of bugs or pests in their plants, and was initially a little turned off by some of the reviews. I don't know what the fuss was about. I've been here close to a handful of times and I really like the place. They carry good products at a price that makes sense given the convenience of the location. They have some great plants, admittedly not cheap, but in mostly great care from what I've seen. And I can tell their inventory isn't old, because they've recently sold out of my preferred potting soil and were able to let me know more was coming in the coming days.

Michael Center: Good selection of plants, unfortunately everything is overpriced and the staff is horribly rude and unhelpful. I have visited this place several times and would let past rudeness slide marking it up to maybe that person was having a stressful day, however, during my most recent visit an employee went out of their way to shame my wife and I for wearing a mask while inside the building. This place is so convenient for this neighborhood, but that convenience is outweighed by their hostility.
Response: "I said i thought covid was over" is that Hostility to you and your wife. You know what is hostility? your comment, your aggression towards black people and their contribution to the neighborhood. thank you for the 1 star for my 14 years of hard work. welcome to the neighborhood. It will soon be all yours.

Sabrina Beaü: I had such a good experience at Natty Gardens this week. I was helped out by a guy named David. I really appreciate someone who takes pride in the job that they do. He was very knowledgeable about different plants/ best seasons to grow/How often to water them/ best bang for my buck. And I really appreciate that. Sometimes you go into stores with a lot of dumb questions. David never once made me feel like I was dumb for the most simplest questions. I really appreciate the hard work of the Natty Garden team. They made me feel not just a priority but like family. And that's very rare for Brooklyn lol

ifaa amit: Selection is nice, but some sections won’t show prices (which mostly are quite expensive). Home Depot gave much better prices 🤷‍♀️

Ashley Tjhoi: Lots of options for common plants. Came in for potting mix and orchid bark. Surprised to see all the pests preventions and will definitely come back for emergency infestations.

Kelly Holden: Extremely crowded. Staff weren't present or much help. Paid $24 for a small cactus that wasn't tagged, which is now rotting in my kitchen - literally oozing and moldy after 2 weeks. Sad! Recommend the Sill, where I have plants that are thriving for over 2 years! And since I can't respond to the owner's reply. I just want to add why I recommend going to another store - where they take more care and warranty plants. Dying after 2 weeks is not because I am "filled with hate", it's because there was something wrong with the plant, which was my point. Right back at you Natty Garden. Nice example of customer service and "love" for the community.
Response: Hi Kelly. You sound like a person filled with hate and rage. We live in a world filled with hate and bias and plants help a lot of people find love for things that can’t speak back. My suggestion. It’s not where you buy the plant, it is how you care for it. Doesn’t matter if it’s from Homedepot or Ikea. Guess what, the got them from a grower just like me. Visit the Sill and fill your house with plants and animals and I promise they will in time make you a Better Person. Bring love to your heart.

Josh Mojica: Jay is amazing! We got there a few minutes before close and helped us decide on the perfect plant for our space. They’re always friendly and helpful at Natty. :)

Sandra Whittington: I've gotten my healthiest, happiest plants for the best prices at Natty Garden. This place beats all the fancy stores hands-down. The person working there (the owner) is hard at work tending to the store, but he was very calm, patient, and helpful with me. Can't wait to go back. :)
