My first time ordering from them and I am so happy that I did.
The moment I saw the massive box I knew they took packing seriously. Sure enough after opening the box each and every one of the plants were packed with true professional first class care. I've never seen such a large box for only 11 plants.
Every plant is well established, healthy and happy.
I'd like to point out that it is winter now with temperatures the past two days below freezing so I was quite concerned.
Another plus, that is equally important, is that they have been responsive to communication prior and after my order.
Thank you Vintage Green Farms. I'll certainly be ordering again my next trip to the US.

Amazing and reliable online seller for tropicals! I have been a Zone 9 customer since 2015 and will continue to purchase from Vintage Green Farms in Hilo, Hawaii because Tom never fails to promptly deliver healthy rooted plants that are meticulously packaged! I have bought various gardenia and a plumeria cutting, all of which are growing beautifully. On May 19th, 2016, Lehuanani added the following:
Correction to location - Vintage Green Farms is located in Keaau on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Purchased 2 Striped Tiger fig trees from VGF, I have nothing bad to say about the company so far. The owner was helpful, answering my questions, and even sent a photo of the plant so I could see it for myself. Shipping was like lightning compared to other companies, extremely fast. The plants are well developed (woody), but seem to be scalded from the sun, all leaves are yellow and falling off. I did notice the leaf burn before I purchase the plant, but it got much worse during shipping. I am giving a neutral rating until I see if the plants rebound. Being woody plants, I am hoping they can recover and perform. Will update this post in a few weeks. On June 13th, 2015, Fishman1 changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:
I now am changing my rating to positive.

Simply put, an excellent online plant retailer! Topnotch customer service, super fast shipping (from Hawaii, no less!) and beautiful healthy plants that arrive in perfect condition.

I have been looking for excoecaria bicolor variegata for quite some time and found it online at Vintage Green Farms. The plants that I ordered arrived today, safely and quickly via Fed Ex from Hawaii. The cost of shipping was reasonable and the careful packaging was excellent. Even though it appeared that something rather large had dropped on the box in transit, the plants were undamaged, still moist, and beautiful. Each plant was in a 3.5" pot, yet was quite large and well leafed for the pot size. I am thrilled with this nursery!
I've used Vintage Green Farms 3 times now (in 2 months). I am very impressed with the quality of their plants, the selection, and the entire transaction process. Shipping is top-rate. While shipping may seem a little high at first, when you see the great prices and quality of the plants - it is a better than buying from my local nursery. Plus - the selection is perfect. Extremely professional - I'm getting ready to pace my 4th order now!
