Posted on February 27, 2010, updated June 26, 2021 An absolutely perfect trsnsaction from start to finish. Onalee's sets a high standard that other mail order dealers should be judged by, and I'm sorry to say very few are at this exalted level. Website is endlessly fascinating and well worth returning to. I'm gushing! But she is so worth it!!
On June 26th, 2021, dave12122 added the following: I placed a recent order with Onalee for 2 Plumeria cuttings. Imagine my surprise when Onalee included two EXTRA CUTTINGS FREE OF CHARGE!! and two of them were branched, another nice plus. The planting instructions for the cuttings was three pages, the most thorough I have seen. A GRAND SLAM HOME RUN BY ONALEE!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSISTENTLY OUTSTANDING SERVICE!!

Service was outstanding! And I loved that Onalee included a photo of herself,--makes doing business with her more personal. Nice to actually know the vendor! The internet can be so faceless and this eliminates that barrier. You go, girl!

I ordered some Celosia seed this year and was very impressed with the detailed instructions on how to grow them. It's been years since I started seeds inside under a gro-light, and she gave excellent advice on that subject as well as the standard outdoor growing advice. The seeds germinated just fine.

Great service; Quick delivery; Excellent note explaining how to propagate the seed. I purchased Palm Grass seed and wish to discover how this plant will do in my heavily treed yard in zone 9B. I feel certain the seeds are excellent, so wish me luck that I have the green thumb :)

It was a pleasure ordering from Onalee! Her web site sells plants that we have seen at botanical gardens, but have been unable to purchase locally. We appreciated the fast delivery, careful packing and the link to her "gardenguides" with info about the bulbs we ordered. We are looking forward to planting the Pine Cone Ginger bulbs and would definitely order from Onalee again!

I ordered the Queen of the Night Epiphyllum and I was impressed with the service. The order was processed quickly, extra help was provided during the payment process and the order arrived on time. This was a gift for my sister who was thrilled with the quality of the plants. I look forward to using this vendor in the future.

I placed my first order with Onaleeís last month. Products shipped quickly. So far, nice germination rates have been achieved following their instructions. The website doesnít have the largest selection; however, what they do carry is a good selection of unique items that are of high quality.

Onalee, thank you and keep up the excellent work.

I purchased a number of seed packets from onalee. 4 of them showed excellent germination rates but the ruellia didn't germinate for me. I contacted onalee and she sent me replacement bare roots. I am so grateful and am happy to recommend onalees as she stands by her products and was a pleasure to deal with. Plus all the wonderful plants!

On Jan 13, 2020, Hjarrell56 (1 reviews) from Mobile, AL
Received all seeds I ordered. Was very well packaged. Each package contains all information needed for planting and growing and also a seedling identifier picture which I absolutely love. So far I am having great success with all my seeds except the datura seeds. But Iím sure they will come along soon they are just slow germinatirs. I will update on the daturas.

I ordered some seeds for Spring 2020 planting. They arrived quickly in perfect condition! Seeds are in small envelopes with all the information I need printed neatly right on the envelope. There's even a photo of what the sprouting seedling will look like so I don't pluck it out thinking it a weed! IMHO this is definitely a company to purchase from! Thank you Onalee's!

My purchases from Onalees Seeds have been wonderful. Onalee has been very helpful in recommending seed varieties that will fill my needs. Such plants that will survive the 120 degree heat that we can have in Phoenix AZ. Each seed packet has the planting info on it so that one will have success in growing it. For instance the info on one of the seeds that I ordered said that it is a flowering annual that can grow as large as a small tree. That means it needs a special location with space. Onalees Seeds is a great source for seeds. I will continue to order from Onalee.

Onalee's is a great place to order Japanese morning seed packets online. The selection is great, with an easy to navigate website with prompt notice of your purchase. Seeds are quickly & properly packed & shipped. One packet from Japan, even had a plastic label inside, showing the bloom, & can be helpful to identify the cultivar, from others you may grow. (As, marker pen labels may fade, fast... ) I would definitely buy from Onalee again, as she is kind, helpful , courteous & efficient in al these aspects . Also, for the great variety, quality service, response to emails & reasonable shipping prices, for some very unique imported Ipomoea nil seeds, to satisfy any specialized gardener.

I recently ordered a Crinum jagus from Onalee Seeds. The order came quickly and was packed very well. I am a horticulturist and have ordered from many companies over the years. I also worked at a mail order nursery and and was always trying to watch our quality and how orders were being shipped out. So a well packed plant that arrives in great shape is something I look for and as I said, they did a great job. Also the plant was large and healthy. They also have good planting instructions for the plant. I would definitely buy from them again.

Ordered 2 Pagoda plants for a very good price with free shipping. I must admit they looked a bit sad when they arrived, but they started sprouting new leaves within a couple of days and I'm confident they'll turn into nice plants. I would definitely recommend this seller.

I ordered some - very difficult to obtain - giant Crinum Asiaticum seeds on 9th Oct. 2017. Onalee must've posted them very quickly as the package arrived only 9 days later, having travelled right across the Atlantic to here in the UK, including the usual delays at customs etc. The large, walnut-sized seeds look wonderful too: healthy, firm and fresh, with some of them already sprouting! The packaging was just perfect, and despite charging only $12 for S&H I noted from the postage details on the padded envelope that Onalee paid over $21 in postage alone, ie not including the cost of packing materials, packaging time, filling out export forms and going to the post office. The paperwork and information provided is second to none, giving website details of the best sources of planting and care information, as well as places where one can share one's buying experience. This is by far the best way of helping gardeners as it would be impractical to try to include so much information for every different seed or plant when it is all readily available online. Being a bit techno-baffled I wouldn't normally have the patience to sign up for a website like this one just to leave some feedback, but I wanted to thank Onalee for all her kind efforts and care. I would heartily recommend you visiting her marvellous, friendly site, full of enticing, hard-to-find goodies!

I received my shipment from Onalee quickly and in very good condition. I appreciate the picture of the seedling so I can be sure what's coming up is what I planted. I had a hard time finding exactly the type of plant i was looking for, which was a plant my Mom had in her garden. Onalee's description of this plant made it clear that this was what i was looking for. I can't wait to plant the seeds and watch them grow!!

I've my ordered seeds from Onalee several times now and a,ways had a positive experience. Basically, if she has it, and I want it, she's always my first choice. Pros: -Quick shipping. I have never had an order that didn't ship the next business day. -Website easy to navigate. Can find what I need here. -Clear germination instructions on every packet of seed, specific to seed type. -Good communication, Onalee will answer questions if needed, and provides shipping notice with all orders. -Good germination rate. This tells me seeds ar fresh and haven't been sitting around. Cons: Not really any that I can think of. She stands behind her seeds. If she has what you're looking for, definitely order from her.

I ordered seed for the first time. Great experience. First they arrived Very quickly and healthy. I planted them just like direction and three days they were seeding!

Keep you informed how they grow. I would send a Photo but my inability to fix my computer at this time is not letting me download photos. Thanks for the Great seed! Will order again.

The mailman delivered ALL of the seeds today that I ordered from Onalee's Seeds LTD. Their website is easy to use and the ordering was problem free. The package was well protected and I can hardly wait to get everything planted. It is perfect weather here near the Gulf Coast for getting things in the ground. I was especially excited to learn that she sells Coral vine, Hyacinth Vine,and Cucuzzi Squash seeds. I have looked for them without luck for quite a long time.. Everything about this company is perfect from here in my garden area. .
