Quotes from Our Customers

Thank you so much for directing my attention to the watering guide on your website. It is one of the most useful two pages I’ve read in quite a while! I’ve always understood the deep watering principle, but I didn’t appreciate the volume of water and amount of time to accomplish it. I turned the controllers off and spent several days giving every plant on the property a very deep soak (via the irrigation system, and some even more by hand) and then changed the settings dramatically, from every other day to twice a week for much longer durations. What a difference it has made! I’ve been gardening for 50+ years and have never read such a clear, simple and specific watering discussion. I am so impressed with the wealth of very well-written materials on your site. Where has Shooting Star been all my life? :) -Linda C., Ashland, OR

When I find the right professional, I hang on tight and recommend them like crazy. Christie at Shooting Star Nursery is one of those pros. Highly knowledgeable, grounded (pun intended), smart, fun and creative. The business she and her husband have built speaks to taking care of our Planet as well, which was at the top of our list. From the initial onsite consultation to the plan to the list to the planting - it was all smooth, easy and encouraging. We wanted edibles and we got them and have learned a lot along the way already. Without a doubt, SSN is my first choice as a home and property owner. As a business owner I also appreciate her receptivity and thoughtfulness and huge value she offers. Thanks, Christie, Scott & Crew for helping us live carefully with our landscape. –Ginger Johnson, home & business owner

My husband and I attended your 10 am tree transplanting seminar today. It was our first time at your nursery. We enjoyed the class and learned a lot (OK, that was not particularly hard to do considering our very basic knowledge coming in). We were impressed by your selection, the presentation of the stock, and the caliber of you and your staff. All in all, we  had a great time, in addition to purchasing some trees. Just want you to know we will be back for more classes and will spread the word about Shooting Star. P.S. The brownies were killer. –Connie G. and Mark I.

Thank you so very much for offering  a wonderful tour of your amazing nursery.  After all the rave reviews I've heard, I was so impressed by what I saw and by your depth of knowledge.  Thanks for helping to feed our gardening souls! –Linda C. from Ashland, OR

I'm writing to thank you for all your help and expert advice, and hoping when my project is complete—I'm shooting for June 1, you can find the time to come over and hopefully admire, or critique my garden. Again thanks, and I love your nursery. –Jim M.

After five years it was time to give our patio a face lift. We want to send out a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Shooting Star Nursery, my personal favorite place for plants in the entire valley! With their exemplary plant knowledge and amazing plant selection we are ready for another five years. Whether you are a master gardener, novice gardener, or just looking for a beautiful place to explore, head out to Central Point. –Nora LaBrocca of Downtown Market Co. in Medford

I have been to a lot of nurseries and Shooting Star nursery has the healthiest plants in the valley and the best selection. –Shannon C. of Medford

Thank you so much for your excellent and knowledgeable advice and guidance. I am very appreciative. –Susan in Ashland, OR

Thanks for the class and the opportunity to get some planting fun in! It was a great class, very informative! Looking forward to more! –Miche LaCour

Shooting Star Nursery owners Christie & Scott Mackison stock the best selection of high-end ornamental plants available in the Rogue Valley. We routinely refer our clients and friends. They've always been extremely accommodating in filling our orders on a tight schedule, and often bend over backwards to locate hard-to-find varieties. I highly recommend. -A Google User

You cannot do any better than Shooting Star Nursery! I had a complicated request that required that the J&P roses I ordered online then be shipped to Christie at Shooting Star Nursery where she repotted them into decorative pots along with trailing plants and daffodil bulbs. The roses were delivered by the nursery to a young woman and her family in Central Point who had just lost her husband and dear friend of the place where I work. You can't ask for better or more compassionate service than that!! Five stars and up! Thank you from all of us at Bay Area Hospital in Coos Bay. –Vicki Chism

Thank you for all the help, support, and expertise this year! So appreciated. –Laurie Sager, Laurie Sager and Associates Landscape Architects Inc., Ashland, OR

I love shopping here. I get personal attention and excellent advice about deer resistant plants. Today, I discovered plants I have never seen in over 40 years of gardening. -Rita Ashley

Had my garden landscaped in 2008. Every item purchased @ Shooting star still alive & flourishing...in spite of my gardening techniques! -Leslie Gault

Great nursery and customer service:) -Jill Tompkins

A special Thank You to Shooting Star Nursery for the loan of several of your beautiful plants for our use at the 'Chopin by the Vine' Concert/Dinner benefit for Project Helping Hands this past Sunday. -Kenneth Weaver
