Loved it so much, I want it at my new house
from Longmont, CO
About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Pollinator Paradise Pre-Planned Garden:
I admit I was disappointed when the plants arrived, they did not look very healthy, and I doubted their survival. The first year brought a few blooms towards the end of the summer. However, the 2 years following the planting, these plants were vibrant, healthy and wonderful, and continuous blooming from beginning of summer through the cold months. I was amazed at the amount of bees and Butterflies that loved the garden, and the 3rd year brought the hummingbirds. I had to leave my lovely garden behind when I bought a new house, but I just bought the same garden so I can plant it in the front of my new home this spring. added the Oriental Poppies collection to add color in the spring and early summer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love Love Love This!
from Castle Rock CO
I bought 3 different pre-planned gardens this year from HCG and this one was my favorite. I bought 2 of these and put them next to each other. All the plants flourished and some bloomed. This garden was also the favorite for the hummers, bees and butterflies. I received lots of compliments on these plants. Can't wait to see them next Spring.

About Me Master Gardener
Very disappointed in this purchase. Plants arrived small and sad. I'm an Agronomy Major so I have knowledge of growing plants. I have been receiving this catalog for a few years and thought I would give them a try. Please don't waste your money. Buy local! You will be much better off in size and price.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Need to see if the plants survive the winter.
from Denver, Co.
See all my reviews
I planted this preplanned garden in a raised garden bed about 10 inches high. The plants all did okay, except the liatris aspera, the squirrels destroyed all of them and then destroyed the replacements I put in. I had to give up and put salvia in instead. The blue fortune got really big and took over the whole bed, I will need to move it this Spring, should not have been in the middle. The solidago fireworks just sat there, it finally began to spread, but never got taller and never bloomed, so I'm not sure that is what it really is. Hopefully, next season all the plants will really take off, it was okay, but not what I had hoped for.
Merchant response: Good Day B,We are so sorry to hear of your disappointment. Many of our customers have described the growth rate of our perennials as the first year, they sleep, the second year, they creep and the third year, they leap! We are sorry to hear that your Liatris and your replacement Liatris was eaten by squirrels. If you have a rodent problem in your garden, we suggest using a repellent the first growing season even on critter resistant perennials to give the perennial a chance to establish first. This will ensure that if the squirrels do take a taste, the plant should be mature enough to take it. As you know, we are truly committed to your success which is why we fully guarantee all our products up to a year form the day your order has shipped. If you are still not satisfied with your garden this spring, we strongly encourage you to give us a call and one of our friendly representatives would be more than happy to go over your options to ensure you get exactly what you paid for! Should you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to call us at 1-800-925-9387 Our hours are Monday to Friday 9 am - 5 pm MT.Happy Gardening!

I really wanted to like this
from North Texas
I really loved the idea of this. I bought 2 as the area I planted was larger. I was not terribly impressed with the plants - some had been damaged in shipping but I thought they would be fine. They were all smaller than I was expecting. Let me also say I have NEVER prepared a bed like this for planting - I am much more casual and I get great results. This was a chore - but I wanted it to look good so I made the effort. It is now Labor Day Weekend and the results have been unspectacular to say the least! One plant I would give an excellent rating and the others well here they are itemized:* Agastache 'Blue Fortune': Gorgeous Really grown well and the bees are loving it!* Solidago 'Fireworks':Growing OK but no blooms and not very bigEchinacea purpurea: Disappointing. Plants are small and they have not broadened out. I have had these in a different garden in the area and they were big and gorgeous from their first season.Rudbeckia Goldstrum: These are pretty good. I really did not need these as I have a bunch in the front yard I could have transplanted - I guess it will be a couple of years before the new plants look as good as my older ones.Agastache 'Coronado Red": Not good at all. One was damaged and is half the size of the other - but the other is barely growing eitherHyssops: Also, not good. None were damaged but the one plant is half the size of the other and they are not growing very wellLiatris: This one is the worst. One plant has not grown at all I don't even know how it is alive - of the other 3, only one has really grown much,I will never order again. I will rather design my own garden and get the plants locally. That way I will get larger plants that will actually grow here and not require so much babying! I have very good luck gardening without too much fuss - this just looked pretty - expensive but pretty. Never again!

We ship plants in either a 2.5 or 5" deep pot, in order to produce great root systems. Please know that we would never want you to pay for something that you did not get a chance to enjoy! We fully guarantee all of our products up to one year from the day the item shipped. We encourage you to give us a call and one of our friendly & knowledgeable representatives would be more than happy to work with you to get the results you paid for!

Don't hesitate to buy. The preplanned gardens are a dream. Easy to understand instructions for all levels of expertise. Healthy plants. Perfect for our climate. Top notch service, packaging, shipping & delivery. Will definitely order a few more of the preplanned gardens again in the future.

About Me Getting Started
I love the packaging they came in. They arrived in perfect condition and planted them a week later. So far, they are looking fantastic and I'll post later in the season how they are progressing with photos. I think I'll be getting more perennial gardens from you next year.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
