    Happy camper

    Posted by Jared on 31st May 2022

    I originally ordered a needle palm, a Sabal minor palm and a saw palmetto. All three came packaged perfectly, I was very happy doing business with Mail Order Natives. The prices were excellent. So for this review I ordered another Sabal minor and a saw palmetto because I was so pleased with my previous purchase. I also ordered two sassafras trees which I’ve been looking for but they are hard to find. All of my plants again arrived in perfect condition and were packed with care which is very important to a plant fanatic.

    Sassafras Albidum

    OMGOSH, I was so pleased with my order when it arrived. I’ve ordered this same plant from 2 other sources and was disgusted with the plants that I received. Too small for the price and badly wilted when it arrived. Mail Order Natives is going to be my regular source for all my plants from now on. My beautiful Sassafras was exactly what I hoped it would be. Very healthy and full of healthy green leaves. The plant I received showed no signs of stress at all.

    Packing sturdy. One tree had green leaves, the other had leaves that were totally brown and shriveled . tree with brown leaves does have buds that appear to be green so I hope it lives

    Sassafras tree

    The roots were pot bound requiring much trimming and disentangling. Due to severe root trim, am watering it lightly twice a day. Better to do it now than have it die in 5 years from root girdling.

    Sassafras

    My two sassafras trees came in wonderful condition, very big for mail order plants, with a big root system. I planted them in very well drained soil, a must for sassafras, so I feel sure they'll thrive, they certainly look good now. Mail Order Natives is THE best!

    Healthy Sassafras trees arrived in excellent condition. I'm a repeat customer and I am very pleased with my experiences with Mail Order Natives. I plan on ordering more in the future.

    The plant arrived in excellent condition, not pot-bound and has cute little mittens!
