I have purchased cuttings many times over the past few years from Aloha Palms, and I have always been delighted with my plumeria cuttings. I was lucky enough to place an order right before Ed Packer stopped selling plumerias on his web site.
At $2 per cutting, Ed Packer showed the world that you do not have to be rich to own a beautiful tree. I will always be grateful for that. I have about 30 trees from him, and they bring me great pleasure every year when they bloom.
I understand that he sells on ebay from time to time, and I would not hesitate to buy from him again. From all indications, Ed Packard is a decent guy and a very nice man.
I have ordered twice this year from Packer nursery. The first time I ordered one dozen plumeria cuttings to start as presents for friends. Packer had the lowest price on generic cuttings sold by color. These cuttings all rooted and most have been given away or are spoken for. Plumeria have proven to be a popular gift item and I realized I needed to start more plants.
My second order was canceled. Mr. Packer immediately sent me an email informing me he was very ill and therefore unable to fill my order. I was able to obtain generic cuttings from an eBay seller, so I will have plumeria plants on hand to give as gifts.
The cuttings from Packer Nursery were an outstanding value for the price I paid. If Mr. Packer is able to resume sales in the future, I would be happy to purchase plumeria cuttings from him again.

Prices for plumeria cuttings were unbelievable @ 1.99 each. We ordered a lot of the plumeria and several house plants which were also 1.99 or 2.99. All arrived healthy and are growing. I had a problem when submitting the order and emailed them and they got back to me immediately. I would buy from them again and I highly recommend them.
