I really enjoy this nursery. You can always find things here you can’t get anywhere else and the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. We bought our spring, summer and fall plants here this year and were so satisfied we went back to get our Christmas tree. I highly recommend Blue Mount.
Blue Mount Nursery is the best! I get all of my flowers from here and this year I got my Christmas Tree from there as well. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful, the prices are fair and they always have a great selection. Additionally, this business is family owned and operated which I love. Highly recommended!
We went to Blue Mount Nursery today for a tree, some shrubs, and a couple plants. Originally, we thought we might go to Lowes or Home Depot for these items; however, we decided to take a chance on this place. So glad we did! Staff are incredibly knowledgeable. Today we were assisted by Aaron. This man could have PhD in plants. We learned so much! Thank goodness he was there to help. If we had gone to Lowes or Home Depot we would have picked a tree and shrubs that would have been very high maintenance. Aaron showed us a variety of trees and shrubs and provided a lot of detail about each, including future maintenance. We were also offered information on how to take care of the tree and shrubs: planting, soil, what to look for in the next few years, any potential problems (i.e. insects), etc. In addition, Aaron did not try to upsell us on anything. In fact, he was very helpful with budgeting. I really appreciate wonderful customer service like this – I hate being sold things I don’t need!
We were also there to pick up some mums. Although their mum selection was comparable to Lowes or Home Depot, their pot selection was amazing! So many beautiful hand crafted pots to choose from.
I will definitely be returning!
I am a contractor in the landscaping business. We deal with over 10 different area establishments and we have seen it all. Bluemount is a great nursery and at the top of our list. We have had 0 issues with sick plants/shrubs/trees from Bluemount and we have had 0 issues with any employees. Infact the employees are very kind and knowledgable. Some of the comments I am reading are unfair. Their return policy here is standard. Their selection is great, and the employees are very kind. The place gets slammed on the weekend so finding help may take longer. Best to go during the week if possible.
For the past 20 years it has been our Christmas tradition to come to Blue Mount and purchase our tree. Even though we have now been living in Arlington for 4 years now, we still make the long trip out to Ashburn to buy our tree. We always end up with one of the first trees we are shown. In fact to show how much faith we have in the quality of their trees, this past year we didn’t even have the tree unwrapped. We look forward to many more Christmas traditions with Blue Mount!
This past year we became home owners in Ashbrun. Since we moved from Texas we really did not know anything about what would grow in this area. We liked some of the landscaping at our new home, but it needed an update. My husband and I were down for the challenge of redoing the landscaping. But the hardest part was where to start. We came into the nursery and worked with Mark. From looking at our pictures he was able to give us many ideas that would work for our space. Their wide variety of plants gave us many different choices for our yard. After working with Mark we set up a delivery of all our plants, soil, and mulch to be delivered to the house in just one load. After a long hard weekend of working in the yard we got the perfect landscaping for our new home and now we are able to enjoy it.
Blue Mount Nursery is my secret shopping place for gifts. I have been coming into the nursery for the past few years buying unique gifts. My mother always asks where I keep finding these quality gifts. I have refused to confess my secret. I will never tell… her at least.
I am an interior designer who does a lot of work for customers who reside in Lansdowne and River Creek. I shop at Blue Mount Nursery for houseplants and ceramic pots. Fairy gardens, succulent gardens, and terrariums have been a huge request recently. I find the perfect little plants, soils and decorative rock in the large green house. When it comes to pots they have a little bit of everything, anywhere from traditional blue and white Asian fishbowls, colorful Mexican pottery, to an amazing selection of outdoor ceramic or concrete pots. Needless to say if you are looking for exotic houseplants and/or pots you should definitely stop by Blue Mount.
My kids love coming to the nursery. A few years ago, we added a small fish pond into our yard. We got the wall stone and pond liner at Blue Mount. We come in throughout the year for our pond chemicals, aquatic plants and my kids’ favorite part the fish, tadpoles and snails. Ponds are a lot of work, so it’s nice to know whenever I have a question I can go into the nursery and talk with the pond guy, Scott.
