This is our third order, and we are so happy with the packing and shipping for each plant. All are growing and spreading out all over the place. A site to behold and wonder. Looking forward to seeing, their full growth.

Great plants and service! February 17, 2019
Reviewer: Daniel Wachenheim from Vancouver, WA United States  
Beautiful plants, carefully packed and sent.  These guys have a wonderful selection, and they know their stuff.  I have bought from another nursery.  The plants that came from Sarracenia NW were much larger and healthier looking.  I also appreciate the hands-on personal service.   I re-read Jacob's ebook before buying these.  Very helpful. Five stars!  Cant wait to see if there is bloom this year!
