I ordered black and blue back in April and was exceptionally pleased with the plants and the care taken in the packaging. The plants are thriving here in eastern NC and the hummingbirds love them. Thanks and I will keep you in mind next spring or maybe sooner.
I recently received my first ever order from Flowers by the Sea and I must say, the flowers i received exceeded my expectations. After a ride all of the way from California to Michigan they were in great shape. Additionally there size showed better growth than anything you could find in a greenhouse in the same size pot. I would not hesitate ordering from them again. Dave
FBTS offers and delivers fantastic products. I purchase high-end plants from plugs to full grown, specimen tree cultivars. FBTS has been a very welcome addition to my Maryland business. They have filled an important niche in my plant material supply chain, and I cannot recommend them enough. From containers to beds to borders, their plants deliver a difference to my clients gardens.
Thank You for the Great Service and 5 Beautiful Cherry Chief Sage plants. All arrived safe and sound because of the Great detail of packing them! The Plants spent 4 days under Grow Lights because of the threat of hail and damaging winds in my part of Texas. Been in-ground now approx. 3 weeks and all 5 have buds and will flower shortly! Followed Your advice given for My handling of the arriving Plants and they and I are Happy ....... :-)
Every time I order from fbts, the plants arrive and are beautiful, even after traveling across the US. I have been very satisfied with the plants I have ordered.
I found the website very helpful and the descriptions were very good. It made me feel comfortable ordering and assisted my garden layout. The shipping policy was very clear, it allowed me to select when I wanted the plants to ship, again allowing me to plan. When the plants arrived it was very clear that professionals packed my plants, because they were all wrapped very well and packaged so plants looked great. I am very excited to see them grow this summer. I am very happy with my purchase and will definitely buy more!
I have purchased over 20 Salvias this year to build a hummingbird garden here in South Jersey zone 7. I have purchased many plants online for several years, but this was the first time from FBTS. The prices are great, especially considering the size and the health of the plants I received. I'm very impressed with the whole process, including the website and ordering, the shipment scheduling, packaging, and delivery. By far the best overall experience I have ever had ordering plants online. Thank you.
I purchased Salvia Arizonica and Oxalis from Flowers By The Sea. Gardening has been my hobby and passion for over 40 years. The plants that FBTS shipped to me were in pristine condition ... the root systems were appropriately developed and the foliage looked like wonderfully fresh leaves that one would see in the produce section of a high-end market. I have purchased product online from other growers, but the product I received was not up to the standard of FBTS. Prior to purchasing the Salvia Arizonica and Oxalis, I had a long conversation with Kermit at FBTS. Kermit was exceedingly knowledgeable, courteous, and helpful in assisting me to determine whether these were the best choices of plants for the areas and purposes I had in mind. Kermit was spot-on. I cannot recommend FBTS strongly enough. They have won my future business. Richard
Great company. Large variety of salvias!
My order for S. greggii alba x dorisiana, S. Amistad and S. x Electric Purple arrived yesterday afternoon in excellent condition with approx. 11\", 18\" and 8\" of growth respectively, not including blooms on Elec. Purple. (These plants are much larger and healthier looking than what I could purchase from local growers and therefore to me are worth the shipping cost.) I put them out to harden shortly after they arrived. As of this morning all three have opened out and perked up. I can't wait to plant them. All of the salvias I've purchased from FBTS have done well. Special mention to the S. dorisiana I planted last Fall. It began blooming in December and hasn't stopped yet. I would like to mention that whenever I've had questions about plant care, Kermit has responded quickly and been very helpful. I live in USDA zone 10A, about 2 miles from SF Bay, with less than ideal sun exposure. Still, all salvias from FBTS have grown beautifully. Kudos to FBTS.
Superb packing and beautiful plants! So glad I bought from FBTS!
The plants we received are excellent in every way. With just a couple of weeks in the ground, there is already a bloom stalk on Mango Popsicle. We couldn't be more pleased. We will definitely recommend you, and have done so on one of the ATP Forums.
Beautiful, healthy plants that are carefully packed and shipped!!
I have always been pleased with the plants and the service that I have received from FBTS. This time is no exception. I immediately planted two of my three plants in pots and am looking forward to watching them grow and bloom. The third plant will be planted in early summer when the ground dries out since it is very sensitive to too much water.
I have always been a salvia fan and when I lived in CA I had hundreds of plants. When I moved to NJ I was in a cold climate and nurseries in the area did not compare with the SF Bay Area. I actually stumbled upon your website one late summer and ordered Zone 6 hardy plants. When they arrived I was pleased to find very large and healthy plants. And we order online from several large nurseries. It takes a lot to impress us and we were really impressed. Out latest order was the best yet with many plants large enough to be in bloom when they arrived! We are a huge fan and scan the website every month or so looking for something new, we will be buying more soon. We give your nursery the highest rating and praise we can.
I love the plants I have ordered! They are so healthy and very strong stemmed. They are doing very well in my garden. Highly recommend ordering from this nursery.
The plants came promptly and were in beautiful shape, nice and strong for planting. They look great.
I recently purchased two Black Sage plants from FBTS. For me it was \"biting the bullet\" to order them. Starting Black Sage can be difficult and I decided to purchase plants instead. For the price plus shipping I was expecting to get a couple of small starter plants in 3\" pots. The day the plants arrived, my first thoughts on picking up the box were: \"My. This is a large box for such a small order.\" I should have realized right then. When I opened the box and carefully unwrapped my purchased plants, I was astounded. What I held were two plants that were foot-tall and quite full. They had been a little cramped in the box and wrapping and were glad to be out of it. I have re-potted them and they have had time to re-group; they are doing quite well. My deepest thanks to everyone at Flowers By The Sea for far exceeding my simple expectations!

The salvias I received are big and beautiful. I just planted them. Salvias have the most gorgeous color range. You lucky guys in zone 8!!
Dear customers, I have been purchasing from flowers by the sea for years know and I am very pleased . A great company to deal with on any issue , the customers comes first! Great job
Flowers arrived in great condition, and much larger than expected. I have looked for both plants for a very long time and had just about given up hope of finding them. I am so pleased with the plants, condition and service, that I cannot say enough. I have become a life-long customer. Thanks so much.
I just received 7 salvia plants: salvia coccinea summer jewel pink and lavender, salvia cinnabarina, salvia fulgens, and salvia guaranitica black and blue. They arrived in perfect condition so perfectly wrapped and protected in a nice size box. I unwrapped them and my plants ranged in height from 6\" to 12\". They look amazing and I can't wait to plant them.
Kermit and crew have always been good about suggesting plants for a particular habitat I've got in mind, and the plants have been well-grown and well-shipped. They've even gone a bit off-list to make a personal grouping selection for me. Their newsletter is very informative and interesting. I'll write more about my latest purchases - 4 different lobelias -- a bit after I get 'em in the ground. I'd recommend them to anyone who's interested in getting better selection and more satisfying plants than the usual BigBox versions.
The plants i orderd were shiped perfectly and are all growing great. thank you so much for the timely delivery.
Every plant that I've received from FBTS has been of exceptional size, vigor and quality. Every one ready to go into the ground and thrive! Their packing is exceptional and shipping is speedy. I highly recommend FTBS for their diversity of offerings, depth of knowledge and experience and top shelf mail order service.
