These people are wonderful, very caring and knowledgeable... and ethical - It was my first time ordering from them but JL Hudson was offering some of their seeds and referring to them so I assumed they were fine and since I did not want to wait for my check to clear i sent cash - everything was perfect! In addition to plant seeds from other countries and plants other than succulents they have a whole section on California so i look forward to ordering a great deal from them. Great plant explorers!

This casually run business specializes in the rare and exotic, particularly Andean tubers and crops. You may actually need to write a check to place an order, but you will always be treated with courteous, personalized service and without a lengthy wait.

Ordered four plants and a packet of seeds, prices were reasonable for unusual plants at a slightly smaller than 4" pot size. The plants are healthy, well packed, and have a nice root system on them. Seed quantity was good for the price of the packet. I'll definitely be ordering some more stuff from them.

A great source for many different Commiphora (C.), Boswellia (B.) and Bursera is Sacred Succulents. They also have a zillion other plants and some seed. They specialize in various succulents and plants from the Andes.

I have purchased a C. mukul (syn wightii or guggul), a B. sacra and seeds for B. sacra from them and I can highly recommend them. Friendly, pleasant and courteous - even for the small buyer such as myself. Reasonable prices and reasonable sized plants that arrive quickly and in great shape.

For anyone interested in getting in to these types of plants, a great and reasonably priced starting point.

My only nit-pick is that they are a wee bit laid back. :-) Probably due to being in California and they are a small family run business. Newsletters and catalogs only come along sporadically. BUT!!! The balance of their service more than makes up for these minor comments. Emails are answered fairly quickly and even a small purchaser such as myself gets first rate service.

Highly recommended.

All I can say about SS is....WOW!!

Not only was communication fantastic, but the plants they have available are some of the most difficult to find in the world. Add to that the detailed locality/collection data with most of them, and the fact they collect the seed themselves and grow them, they simply cannot be beat.
Prices are a bit more than you find elsewhere, but for the variety, quality, and communication/service, it is well worth it.
I cannot recommend them enough!

Got another shipment from them this month...they seem to outdo themselves each time! Amazing size, health, & variety of plants available.
Simply outstanding!

Excellent selection of plants and seeds. Very pleasant communication and shipping was done carefully.

They seem like folks who love what they do. I just placed a second order with them.

Rare seeds from plants mostly from the Andean region though they also have plants and seeds that are native to California (though they have certain plants that are from various continents so just ask them about it). Some of the seeds are much cheaper compared to other sites Ive found them on. Also, the online site lists only part of the catalog (a full catalog cost only $2), the payment method is no different from JL Hudson (in other words mail what you want and the money to pay for it). Overall very nice selection of rare, medicinal and/or edible plants (and seeds).

I've gotten some of the finest cacti I've ever seen from this firm. I know of nowhere else you can get beautiful endangered cacti that are not only seed grown, but organically-grown, too! Incredible rarities - this guy will spend a half-decade carefully growing a cactus from seed - I don't know how he can bear to part with them! Every plant is a beauty. A world-class talent for growing cacti and succulents. Always a pleasure to deal with these folks. --J.L. Hudson, Seedsman

Everything these folks do is infused with good vibes. They know their cacti, they love their cacti, and they grow their own cacti--the real McCoy. Their catalog is erudite yet accessible--humble, not overstated--you'll see what I mean when you get one. I have a number of pet succulents on my windowsills from these folks, and they are really healthy. They also have seeds from some of the more desired herbal oddities worldwide, and quite a few that you've never heard of--where oh where do they find these things?
