I have had a lot of good transactions with this seller. I have always been extremely happy with the palms I have purchased and often they send more than you actually buy. Some of their items are a bit expensive but the quality and shipping are always fantastic so I would continue to buy from them.

I do a lot of trading and some buying with the Ebay seller known as Coconut Climber. There are many shady operations on Ebay, but you always know what you are going to get, plus some with him. I will continue doing business with him in the future.

I've bought a few palms from Coconut Climber on eBay over the years, and every time has been a positive experience.

I have bought from Coconut Climber in the past and have been a satisfied customer. Always arrived in great shape! I now, buy almost exclusivley from locals, but I'd definately recommend them for someone without local access or that hard to get palm.

I have ordered quite a few items from Coconut Climber in the past year and have always been pleased with my palms.

He has a nice variety, quality is good, root system is excellent, good price and packaging. I also usually receive a few extra palms in my order.

I've had several outstanding purchases from this vendor and will continue doing business with them! They have a great selection on Ebay and has others that aren't listed. Paul is great to deal with and is never too busy to stop and answer questions about palms!

I have to echo what everyone else is saying about this vendor. I've ordered a dozen or so palms from him and they always arrive in great shape and half the time he even throws in a free palm or 2. Always a pleasure doing business with this guy.

Recently ordered bare root dypsis true ambositrae and prestoniana from this vendor. They arrived within 3 days of order, and were in fantastic shape even though they shipped from california to florida. :) This guy really knows how to take care of and ship his stock, lush and green with nice root systems, as recieved. After seeing them, I thought I should have ordered a couple more... If you want something you cant find locally, try this seller out, you will have it in great shape in a few days.

I haven't bought anything from him, but spoke a few times through email about shipping. He definitely has a very nice selection of palms

Thanks Everyone! I've been in contact with this vendor and purchased some P. sargentii. I didn't realize when I started this thread that his store goes under the name CoconutClimber and there is already a thread under this name. He asked me if I would ask to have the threads combined. I'll ask the Mod to do this and let you all know how the plants are when they arrive, but I don't have any worries based on what everyone has had to say!

Mod Edit: DONE

Is ebay the only way to order palms from him or does he have a website/nursery/email? Im only a couple of minutes away from santa ana and would rather pick up plants then have them shipped.

Thanks

I have bought dozens of palms from Paul. Some listed on his Ebay site and many that he didn't list but I simply asked him. Also have bought larger sizes than he lists, again just by asking. Always packaged well and is very easy to communicate with.

I've asked Paul this question direct as a palm I was buying was a gift for someone who is very close to him and thought she could simply pick it up and he said no, only USPS. I also asked him if he had any retail store out there as I was going to be in the area for a visit and would have been cool to see his nursery, but again was told no because they aren't a retail operation.

Does anyone know when this store will be back? On ebay it says, "This Store seller is currently away..." Ive bought from them before and have been anxiously awaiting for their store to open. Nothing but good experiences, of course. I still have a Lytocaryum weddellianum that's still alive and well and survived our mild 2015/2016 winter from them.

I'd be interested in knowing too - he is missed on eBay at the minute!

Owner has "been away" for at least several months. Good news, if any, is that eBay still has the store. If they suspend/kick off a vendor, that store "does not exist" anymore.

He told me several months ago he is still in limbo if he wants to return to Ebay. I never asked the details.

I've had good experience with him. The plants I ordered two years ago are healthy and growing. On the first shipment he missed to include one, and after I sent him the pictures he promptly overnighted the palm. Two palms from that shipment turned out to be completely something else, but I'm not complaining as they are turning out to be pretty nice.

Good to hear from everyone and glad that I'm not the only one lamenting palmswholesale's absence. If he does come back, he will have an influx of orders, I know that lol

If he doesn't come back to ebay does he plan to go solo or give up mail order altogether? I didn't buy a lot from him but my last purchase, Butia purpurascens, has turned out to be a dandy for me.

I emailed Paul a couple months ago, asking if he was coming back to Ebay, OR, if he was selling privately.  Unfortunately, I never got a response.  I had purchased multiple items from him, and it was always a pleasure.  Come back Paul!

Bought 2 licualas from him 2 years ago barefoot, excellent condition, bug-free (which is more than I can say about most palms I've bought in Europe), and both living happily with me indoors still but now much bigger.

Hope the store opens up again!
