I ordered for the first time from Flowers by the Sea. I am very impressed by the quality of the plants (red hot pokers and a salvia). They were extremely well packaged and made it to the East from California in excellent condition. I am very excited to get them planted and enjoy the show! Thank you.

I ordered three red sage plants from Flowers by the Sea. When they arrived, they were all healthy, thriving, extremely well-developed plants, packed with roots and quite a good size. (I live in Virginia, so they were shipped all the way across the country.) They were tenderly packed, in a large box,and each completely wrapped in a thick white paper -- and were easy to remove from the box (this is not a criticism of other companies that ship plants, but sometimes they are a little too well wrapped and you need knives and scissors to get to them!). I strongly recommend this company and their plants!

I was extremely impressed by the quality and condition of the plants that I received shipped from Flowers by the Sea. They were very carefully wrapped, the soil was moist and they were in impeccable condition. I would definitely order from them again!

As usual I am very pleased with the recent purchase of Salvia from you. Also, thank you for gifting me the plants that were shipped in error. You folks are extremely fair and this is greatly appreciated. My only issue is the distance and freight costs involved in purchasing from you. However, the variety and scope of your Salvia offerings is not matched by any other vendor that I am aware of. Again, thank you for your fine service and quality product.

Very beautiful, full and healthy plants wrapped gently, perfectly. Less than 48 hours from N California to OKC! Wow! Yes! Will review each specimen as they grow.

My plants arrived in excellent condition! They are bigger and better than any plant I've ever ordered, by far. One plant could not be shipped so I called, and their customer service rep was SO polite and helpful. I'll definitely place more orders with them!

Our plants came as scheduled and were in excellent condition. Communication with the company was excellent. I have ordered plants on-line from several sources and our Flowers of the Sea plants came better packaged than any other company we have dealt with. We live in the desert and our mail ordered plants often show up dehydrated and dead/half dead. Not so in this case - each plant was wrapped in moist paper to help prevent desication and arrived in vibrant conditon! We will order from this company again.

I am always happy with your plants and look forward to their arrival every year! Your plants arrive healthy and strong and ready to grow and flower for me here in Long Islsnd. No one has the selection you have or the care of the plants you can see in every pinch to promote branching and the nice deep root pots! I wish my climate would allow all your salvias to overwinter here! Thank you for the work that you do!
Alice Raimondo who rated us 10 / 5 on May 16, 2017

The Salvias were very healthy and full, packed with care, and arrived undamaged all the way from California to Rhode Island. I highly recommend Flowers By The Sea. Their customer service is excellent!

Ordered three pink mexican bush sage. Had to wait due to my late order but they arrived yesterday. They were much bigger than I expected. They were still moist, no broken foliage and lovely green leaves. I was very happy since I cannot get these anywhere here.

This afternoon was much better than Christmas morning. My latest shipment of FBTS plants arrived, and all are in great condition. Please thank all who helped with the excellent packing job. The plants were moist and well protected from breakage. The Agastache ‘Blue Boa’ (one in full bloom!) and the Cuphea x ‘Kristen’s Delight’ (also blooming) are particularly glorious. Thanks so much.

I love the salvia's that I received! They were beautiful, healthy and in-bloom. I will buy more in the future.

The salvias arrived in great condition. Than you!

Just received my plants today from Flowers by the Sea,(my first order) and WOW, they are fantastic! I could smell them outside of the box, so when I opened it, it was awesome! The packing was great, and I am so glad I received them before it got too hot here in Texas! I cannot wait to plant them, but tonight they are resting and getting refreshed from traveling so far! Thank you for such beautiful plants!

I first ordered from Flowers by the Sea in the spring of 2013, and have ordered from them every succeeding year since then. Their nursery stock arrives very carefully packed which reflects the care they put into to their product. The plants they send are very full and very healthy. By some people's standards I am an extreme gardener, and I have dealt with many many mail order nurseries. To this day I am so impressed with my order from these people. I live in a rather small town and feel so grateful to have a nursery that specializes in salvias and their companion plants. When you order from them you will not be disappointed!

Yesterday my order of 6 salvias arrived. Up until then I had considered the plants I got from Annie's Annuals and Perennials this year to have been the best of many mail orders. Now, I must revise my opinion and give the first ;prize to Flowers by the Sea!. All the plants were meticulously wrapped and arrived well hydrated, and so large. So many of the orders I received this year were hardly worth unwrapping; the quality of plants was unbelievably poor, desiccated and puny, Yours and Annie's were the exception and I will definitely order from you again. Note: the Enter Code line will not allow me to type the last two letters (Y and Z).

From one salvia lover to another.... I always am so amazed at the quality and condition of plants I order from you. In spite of the distance (CA-SC) the plants always are in wonderful condition. All 12 of the recent order were well rooted and ready for planting. Thank you for your quality products!
Randy Collins who rated us 10 / 5 on Apr 6, 2017

Amazing plants! At least twice the size of plants from other places. Delivery is extremely fast. Packaging of plants is unique...
Greg Smith who rated us 10 / 5 on Apr 6, 2017

Very well grown healthy plants. The best mail order plants I have received from numerous growers. For the size of the plants they were priced appropriately.

I placed my order of 6 Salvia Buchananii with Flowers by the Sea in February 2017 for arrival in early to mid March. During the first weeks of March we here in Coastal South Carolina were warned of hard freeze potential. Flowers by the Sea contacted me via telephone to discuss the shipping of these young and tender plants during this hazardous period. They really cared about the success of my purchase and the plants. We decided to put the shipment off until the end of March and like promised they arrived on March 30, 2017 looking beautiful. How nice to have such a dependable and dedicated Customer Service that cares and cares in advance. Many plants were destroyed during the March freezes here on the coastline of South Carolina. I could not be happier. Thanks Flowers by the Sea!

You ship beautiful plants. They are large and healthy. I was so impressed that I gave my doctor your website information as he loves Salvias. I told that you had every one ever cultivated and he wouldn't be disappointed.
CAROL MORENO who rated us 10 / 5 on Mar 29, 2017

I have ordered plants from six different nurseries online over the last year (because I am so particular and no one carries everything) but FBTS was by far my favorite. I've received plants from other stores where they cut the plant down to the root ball, but FBTS sent me two healthy plants that weren't trimmed down and weren't damaged during shipping, showing they don't necessarily need to be cut down! They also didn't suffocate them in saran wrap or remove their pots so the soil didn't crumble around the root ball. My plants arrived looking happy despite being in the dark for however many days it took them to arrive, and I can't say the same for any other business that has shipped me plants. You guys have an amazing selection of salvias, but I just wish I could buy ALL my plants from you. I'm just so pleased with how my two plants I bought from you have taken off. There wasn't a moment of doubt with either of them! They're healthy and the packaging job was the best I've seen!

Really trustworthy blog. Please keep updating with great posts like this one. I have booked marked your site and am about to email it to a few friends of mine that I know would enjoy reading..

My order of 2 Salvia ringens, one semiatrata arrived at the time I had specified in great shape with very little damage from shipping. The minor damage was to the large amount of foliage the plants have. All were in bud and ready to bloom in a few days! As with my previous orders from FbtS, the roots were well developed and I potted them up into 1 gallon pots. A month later the roots at pot bottom and planted them out to our plant zoo yard in San Jose. The only suggestion find a substitute for the Styrofoam \"peanuts\", perhaps shaving. Shavings can be used a mulch, or composed. It is great to be able the specify a shipping date, too. All in all it's the best place to get Salvias and companion plants, sound information and ideas, for my money. Cheers, Richard T.
