    Native plants

    Posted by Susan Miles on Feb 7th 2023

    I live in an area of Texas where it is difficult to find many native plants in the local nurseries. I was delighted to find Mail Order Natives since I have been searching for plants that do well in raingardens. They also had swamp milkweed which I have searched for. The plant roots were carefully wrapped to avoid drying and the 7 plants I ordered were carefully nestled in shredded newspaper which I was able to use as the first layer of my new compost bed. I could not be more pleased and will definitely order from them again.

    I purchased this plant for my butterfly garden. It arrived healthy, quickly, and was a larger plant than I expected. After planting less than a week ago, it already has new growth. Extremely happy with my purchase!

    Arrived tall and healthy

    Posted by Charlotte Jurek on May 21st 2022

    I’ve only had this cotton bush for about a week so I can’t say much about it. I will say how pleased I was with how tall and healthy it was upon arrival. I’ve ordered from this company a few times now and I’ve been happy with the plants and service each time. I’ve been wanting this bush for a while since it’s a great one for pollinators. My yard is small so I’m going to try to keep it pruned so that it has more of a compact tree look.
