Bill is a very underated grower and offers rare and common palms at a great price. Always make a trip to Multiflora a couple times a year.

I wish Bill had stayed "off the radar" a little longer. I could have had even more palms! Great palms at awesome prices!

I think Bill has kind of been "our little secret" for awhile. The 3 5-gallon palms I bought from him would have been potted up to 15's by most nurseries. Even Florida folks would approve.

love this place. ran into bill at the swap meet. his prices are great and so are the quality of his plants. very nice guy who will flat out tell you the truth if a palm will do well in your local. ive picked up over 25 palms from bill so far and all have done great. when im looking for any type of palm i call bill first.

I agree, with everything above. Multiflora has become one of my favorite nurseries and I've definitely found some treasures there. Everything is very well taken care of and acclimates very quickly for me.

Bill drove out and delivered a couple large palms and a few smaller ones and all came in great shape.  not only did he deliver but he helped me drop the 8' palm into the hole I dug out, treated it, and made sure I knew what I was doing.  the other large plant I got was a 15g but was massive, sometimes I don't see 24" boxes with a plant this large.  I didn't get the liberty to pick out my own palms since I wasn't able to make it out to the nursery but bill picked amazing specimens for me.  I know i'll be seeing Bill again soon
