Ordered 5 plants sometime in Spring....waited and waited...emailed them and they told me they had a crop failure or something, no problem....I went on waiting....and waiting.....finally, I just got them. Well, the clove was doing poorly when I got it, but I KNEW that it was ultra tropical, so I don't blame them, but next time I am going to pay for overnight shipping.
Everything else arrived perfectly. I have ordered plants online long enough to tell when plants are propagated when ordered. All this is fine, I really am satisfied with the plants, I would order from this company again, I really would, I just have 2 wishes....1) give some kind of idea of the wait and/or warn when shipping, so that after all those months, I can have pots/soil ready when they arrive. 2) send some kind of growing instructions as some of these plants are extremely rare and finding cultural needs on them is difficult. Luckily, I have grown enough tropicals to give a good guess, but a newbie would fail.
I wish them luck in their business, I really appreciate the shipping to California, since Jene's won't ship here. I can hardly wait to re-order the clove...hopefully with better results. Like I said, I will order from them again!

I have purchased from this company several times in the past year. The plants are always large, packed really well and in great shape.

Received a large and healthy plant so I would order from this store again. They were true to their word and even called to make sure I would be home to receive package.

I have visited this nursery and met with both owners. Their knowledge, expertise and helpfulness has been extremely beneficial in the development of my "botanical garden".

I live within the area of Native Habitat and have been there
on several occassions to purchase trees and plants. Both owners have always made certain I was completely satisfied,
and sometimes that can be tedious.

Highly recommend them to the any botanical connoisseur.

I cannot say enough bad things about my experience with this nursery, the worst I have ever had. I should have been suspicious when they listed no phone number or address on their website. They billed my credit card immediately, would not send my plants and did not answer my emails. They finally sent me one plant out of an order of 5 and my seed order, which consisted of any empty enevelope. Their packing list had the nerve to have "Tell your friends about us" at the bottom of it - I definitely will!

This is to update my negative comment regarding this nursery a few months ago. When this was brought to their attention, the nursery located my order. I have now received my plants, they are healthy, and I want to inform this forum of their efforts to make things right.

I don't think this is actually a mail-order nursery, but rather a landscape company that has an interest in (what I would call ) unusual tropicals. They have a pretty nifty website, with pop-up photo/descriptions of available tropical plants. I ordered several tropical fruit plants (carambola, miracle fruit, black sapote) - there is no on-line ordering, so I had to print out the order form and fill it in~by hand~! It took about 5 weeks, but the plants arrived packed astoundingly well - a truck could have run over the carton without harming them. Very nice size plants, in good condition. No culture instructions. I really have the impression that this business is sort of a hobby run amok. Since ordering, I've made several info requests via e-mail, and received consistently informative replies. Nice little company, I think, though neither wanting nor prepared for big volume.

On Feb 20, 2003, nancyanne/bspaleo added the following:To the best of my knowledge, this co. is a couple of landscapers with a strong interest in unusual plants, particularly zone 10 and tropicals.
This will be about my 5th yr. ordering from NH - I've always been thrilled with the plants, as well as their growth and health.

They sometimes do take awhile to ship the plants, and are not particularly prone to keep in touch about orders. However, the plants always turn up, always well packed, always healthy.

A really nice website, and the selection of plants is unusual and interesting. I would recommend them.
