I've received some great palms from Christian. Most of them were picked up from his nursery or delivered to me at Eddie's house in Venice and all were in great condition - 100% survival rate.

I've been buying palms from Christian for quite some time. Great selection and great prices, plus he has an incredible amount of knowledge on the palms he sells. If Christian ever gets the mail order business up and running again, I'll be purchasing more palms from him.

Earlier this year, Christian came down to participate at the the South Florida Palm sale. He brought a wonderful collection of palms to sell including a Nypa that no one else had to offer. Of course I scooped it up and will plant it out near my pond next spring. His quality was as good as anyone there selling. It's really nice to see some of these new,young guys showing so much passion for growing palms.

I've bought several palms from Christian over the last several years. Every plant I bought was well grown and fairly priced, and I can highly recommend him.

Christian has some great hard to find palms. I visited his nursery last year and they were all healthy and well grown. He was even kind enough to sell me some sprouted seeds at very good prices. I would definitely recommend buying from him.

Christian - great knowledge of palms. We have met him at several palm functions and sales, I have no knowledge of anyone having a negative experience with him. He is also a great guy on Sunday afternoon at a palm sale when the "horse trading" amongst the vendors begins.

My experience with buying seeds from Christian has been great,he manages to find seeds of very rare species and helps spreading them to places of the world like Greece who wouldnt normally get such species in any other way :)
Great deals,fast shipping and an honest and great guy in general!!! :)

Christian Faulkner of Faulkner's Palms is a very knowledgable source for rare palms. Christian has worked at many private residences and world class botanical gardens. His material is hardy and well grown. I recommend anyone shop at Faulkner's Palms.

Although Ray picked it up for me, I have to say the Beccariophoenix alfredii I got from him certainly pleased me. It was $12 cheaper than I'd seen it anywhere else and had a wonderful root system.

I purchased some dioon spinulosum seedlings from Christian recently.
He was in the area so he delivered them to me.
The quality was great and he is a really nice guy. :)
