I have purchased two palms from Bill, both Tahina seedlings. If it weren't for him, I probably wouldn't have one, and since I'll be donating mine to my uncle down in South Florida once they get a little bigger, he wouldn't get the opportunity to grow them if it weren't for Bill. I'm not sure if Bill has a mail order business, but if he does I wouldn't hesitate to order more palms.

Bill is a great guy. He helped me pick out some fantastic palms, then even arranged for me to pick them up while he was out of town. His prices and quality of palms are outstanding, and he has assisted with information after the sale too. First class vendor.

I've bought from Bill several times. Lovely palms, as advertised. A straight-up guy and honest seller who gives me no grief, no snark and no attitude. I will definitely buy from him again.

I have visited Bill's setup in Lantana, and he has put a lot of work into keeping everything in top shape. You will get what you pay for if you buy from Bill.

Sent an extra plant along with an already unbelievable deal. The palms were expertly packaged and obviously grown with TLC. Highly recommended.

Knowledgable, accommodating, great communicator who obviously loves what he does with palms (and is increidibly good at it). Thanks, Bill. I look forward to seeing your set up in person down the road.

I can't recommend Bill enough as a palm seller. I recently bought a huge 2 gallon Chambeyronia macrocarpa from him at an incredible price. The guy is a class act.
