Very Rude!!! – I recently went here to purchase a gift for my mom. I have purchased several orchids from them and my mom used to purchase all of her landscaping materials from them. She refuses to shop there because of the customer service.
I went in on a Saturday afternoon and there was one other customer in the orchid section and three people working. I had several questions about my purchase and was treated like a nuisance. I bought several orchids from them in the Spring that were dormant and one had little mealy bugs that spread to all of my other plants that I already owned. It took me several weeks to spray all of my them to get rid of these bugs. I will not be purchasing any other products from them!
KOI DIE – Have bought several KOI from here and not a one of them has survived. Never had a problem with any fish I got anywhere else.
Great products with pleasant staff – I usually shop at another garden center in North Raleigh but since it has went downhill I started shopping here. I wish I would have came here long ago. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful and the plants are beautiful. I think this has to be the best place in Raleigh for shrubs!
This place knows how to value it's customers.
Best selection of Trees, Shrubs and Orchids in the Triangle! – I am very impressed with the vast selection of trees, shrubs, and perennials that Atlantic Avenue Orchid and Garden has to offer. I went there for a spring sale that they were having and was able to save over 25% on an assortment of trees and shrubs for my garden.
I was fascinated by the pots. They had these great Asian pots..fantastic colors and designs.
Also, the greenhouse is filled with a terrific selection of all sorts of orchids. I started buying orchids recently once I found out how easy they are to take care of. My home is now filled with them!
I thought the staff was top-notch. They were very helpful and knowledgeable. They were very patient with me, helping me to decide what would be best for my garden.
Spring is just around the corner...and it's worth a trip over to Atlantic Avenue Orchid & Garden Center
Pros and cons of this Center – I am fairly new to the Raleigh area and a friend of mine who has been a long time customer of Atlantic Avenue Orchid and Garden recommended it to me. My husband and I have moved into a home with more land than we had before, but the garden needs work.
There wasn't a lot of help at the garden center but I was eventually able to track someone down in the outdoor nursery area.
There was a lot to select from, but I did have trouble making up my mind. I required help from a staff member. She was knowledgeable but overworked. She was being pulled from many directions and couldn't invest much time with me.
Selection is good but price a little on the high side.
Best in Triangle – I have shopped around the triangle for plants, shrubbery, trees and keep coming back to Atlantic. Almost always a very knowledgeable staff person is present. When this is not the case the is always willing to be helpful. There is a wide range of selection.
Poor service and high prices – Haven't been here in many years and probably won't come back again. Tried to get some one to help and no on is around (one guy waved as he was walking away eating a sandwich), The prices here are much higher than comparable garden centers. You can do much better elsewhere.
gorgeous orchids – for my wedding reception, i rented orchid centerpiece arrangements from atlantic avenue orchids. it was a little shaky in the beginning - i was quoted three different times and their filing system is a 3-ring binder. but when i showed up at the reception, i could not get over what an absolutely wonderful job they had done. it was worth all the nervousness in the beginning. plus i got a great deal by not having to purchase flowers, and they got to resell the arrangements. :)
Best Garden Center In Town! – My recent visit to Atlantic Avneue Orchid & Garden Center was highly enjoyable for the entire family. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and willing to assist in every area! It seems they have everything from basic garden supplies, unique gifts, orchids, trees & shrubs! My husband was thrilled they carried koi fish and my son was amazed with the selection of croc's & rainbow sandals! This is a must see garden center....that seems to have it all!
