They certainly have the packing and shipping figured out. I really like the way we can track packages now days. That is a big plus. The plants sure do look like they are going to have a good start in your garden.

Erin @ The Impatient Gardener

Wow! Those are lovely plants. Very impressive. I'll definitely check out Far Reaches.

Excellent! Since I have access to Far Reaches at our local plant sales (and have made the trip to the nursery on a few occasions) I don't think I would ever order from them but it's good to know how nicely things arrive - just in case!

Lisa — Almost all the nurseries have sent emails with tracking info and I realized how nice it is to have that info when I got a couple of unexpected deliveries from nurseries who did not alert me.

Linda from Each Little World

​Erin — I was very impressed with their plants. You can go online and see what I paid to get a sense of the prices and shipping. It really comes down to wether you are willing to pay a biggish chunk of money to get more unusual plants. We have really good nurseries around here but I love some of the things these other folks sell.

Linda from Each Little World

Loree — Lucky you! We have gone to Klehm/Song Sparrow on a number of buying trips with the WI Hardy Plant Society but there are not the same kind of nurseries and group sales around here. For a city under 200,000 people, where half the year is cold and snowy, we do have a pretty active gardening community. I ordered at least one Z6 plant from Far Reaches so we will see how that works out — or not.

I received that wonderful stretchy brown paper in an order from Crate and Barrel a couple of years ago, and I was almost more excited about it than the merchandise. I still have some of it tucked away.


I love Far Reaches, both the place and the people and, because of their relative proximity to my home, get to visit several times a year in addition to seeing their plants at sales. It's good to know that they do the shipping thing well!

Peter — ​After seeing what great plants I got from Far Reaches Farm, I am really jealous that you are close enough to visit. Their selection is wonderful just reading the catalog, but going to the nursery must be quite the experience. This has been an interesting project to really note how plants arrive and if they are worth the price and shipping etc. Normally, I order what I order and c'est la vie. This has made me realize how much you need to think about when ordering on line and how carefully you need to read the descriptions.
