    SNW Tops!

    Posted by Jerry D on October 7, 2020

    I have been a lurker for a while reading and watching the great videos by Jeff and Jacob. I've loved CPs since the '70s learning from the Pietropaolo book and still have it...Lots have changed !  I had asked Jeff a number of questions since he was the first to reply and then once I was ready, Jacob was the fulfillment guy (amongst all the other things he does).  I just received my first batch of plants from SNW and they were PERFECT.  Just like they say, that it will look like you picked them up at their nursery upon arrival. The best packing I have seen since I have ordered from other sellers for items they did not have in stock at the time. BTW mine showed up in 1 day. They really live up to their high billing as many have attested to and I am another firm believer of their friendly, open and excellent customer care.  I thought I would be pleased but I did not know I'd be amazed. Thank you Jeff and Jacob for all you do for all of us. : )

    Excellent Plants/Service

    Very happy with this purchase. Bought two plants and they arrived well-packaged and preserved. A month later they are still thriving and literally eating the flies in our house. Will definitely purchase from SNW in the future.
