I trusted Potomac Garden Center enough to purchase and have them plant multiple shrubs and trees. I started to notice some of the shrubs in year one looking poorly and assumed it was an insect infestation. This was corroborated by the garden center when I brought in a sample and was told the sample showed spider mites. I was sold a systemic insect spray which I used once in the first summer and again in the following summer since I was still seeing the infestation. When the plants continued to decline, I contacted the State Extension service. I was informed that the insects were leaf hoppers which would not kill a healthy plant and not spider mites at all. I have lost 5 pricey shrubs and one tree. The consensus is that the soil was not amended properly when the shrubs and tree were planted (by Potomac Garden Center) and since I am beyond the one-year warranty period I have no recourse except to swallow the costs and start again. This is a setback to my plans (and budget) for getting the garden in shape for my senior years when I will need to garden less physically and may even want to consider selling.

Nice nursery close to home. Nice variety of plants, and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful. The prices are higher than I like to pay, so I wait for sales. They also started offering local produce on the weekends. Their Christmas shop is also very nice.

They are very knowledgeable and have helped us several times identifying problems with our plants without expecting to be paid.
