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!

Will order again November 19, 2018
Reviewer: Sarah from Largo, FL United States  
I placed my order with slight concerns regarding the time of year (fall/winter) but received a beautiful  plant. It even came with care instructions and other helpful information. This will not be my last order with Sarracenia Northwest.

Dispose negative reviews July 31, 2018
Reviewer: Hermanus Van Greunen from Crockett  
I love all the plants you guys have ever sent me. It's unfortunate when you have people share an extensive email from you which puts them in even a more negative light. All it takes is to read and properly communicate... this is a great plant and people need to educate themselves before sharing their scope of nonsense.

Received a damaged/sick plant February 21, 2018
Reviewer: Can Imamoglu from Brooklyn, NY United States  
Was not looking well upon receiving the package. Frustrating to see Sarracenia northwest sending a plant this condition. Looks like she is not going to make it for too long regardless of my efforts.  *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST ***  I'm sorry that the plant didn't grow well for you.  I reviewed my database, and I don't see any messages from you regarding your order.  We are here to help you out as much as we can.  All we ask is that you let us know of your concerns so that we can rectify the situation as quickly as possible.  At the time of shipping, your plant was dormant, and one or two pitchers from last season remained. This plant also grows much slower than the other plants in your order, and comes out of dormancy much later.  You had received the plant only one month ago.  It is too soon to expect it to show any new growth, even if you are forcing it out of dormancy indoors. If kept outside, you won't see any new growth until the weather warms up significantly.
