On the other hand when I was ordering this plants I told jerry the seeds I had bought from him at Xmas time
Orange crush,Fine leaf dypsis and Licuala Orp. none had popped as of 6 months,these have been a greenhouse kept moist with night time temps of 65* to Daytime temps of close top 90* and next month will be a year,and still no seds have germinated as of yet,I will give them to the new year before I dispose of them to the compost pile,for I can use the spave for other seeds.
So in response I will have to give a neutral rating.

I also want to say that my Wife and I had the pleasure of staying in their rental home in Hawaii on the Big Island. Not only is it a bargin but you get a great house in the middle of a Rainforest that is in one of the best Botanical gardens I've seen. If you have the great fortune of going to Hawaii be sure and stay there if you love Palms and other tropicals. One more thing.......thanks to Jerry's wife Cindy for her hospitality in Hawaii. We will be back next year

It's well worth the schlep out to the place to check it out. Both Mr. Anderson and his sons are very helpful and knowledgeable.
If I had a dollar for eveyone I'd sent there . . . . .I'd be pretty well off.
Let's keep our forum fun and friendly.

Dan, JD's son, emerged from the mist and spent at least two hours wandering around-in the rain- showing us all sorts of plants and being very helpful. We got three palms that are all doing well, almost a year later. Odin never left my side the whole time. Great dog.
I drove from Hollywood-at least 2 and a half hours one way- and would gladly do it again. The selection is amazing, prices very fair and the knowledge was flawless.

top recommendation for Dan, too. Nobody else but him ships internationally without problems. Very rare specimen and my key source for the L. hoehnei.
Perfect handling, top communication, very cooperative.
JD Andersen Nursery get full marks.
Best regards, Verena

Placed an order on 4/23, still have not received the package. Tried emailing a few times, only have had two responses in over a month both saying he will ship that week and then never does. Haven't had a response from him in over two weeks. Completely disappointed, wouldn't mind the wait,but there is no communication.
Similar experience with me. I did get palms, but he kept having to re suggest other palms from what I wanted. He said first selection wasn't in great shape due to lack of water....so made suggestion, then emailed me back to let me know he ended up not having any. All this went on over a period of 3 weeks or so and was almost comical. In the end I did get a 1 gallon Nicobar Palm and a 1 gallon Ptychosperma waitianum. The P. waitianum wasn't in the best of shape with a lot of leaf spotting but looks great now and has pushed one new frond in a Hawaiian punch color. I liked the fact I was able to order palms in their pots which I prefer.
