    Orchids Healthy!

    May 30, 2024 Reviewer: Chris Liszak

    I received these last spring, they looked large and healthy and they came up beautifully this Winter. I first noticed the leaves poking out of the leaf litter in late Fall, and by the end of the Winter they had large, beautiful leaves.

    Plants were shipped promptly and arrived in good condition. Tried them last year but they failed to grow. Hey, these things happen. What matters is, when advised of this, NWN filled my second order with additional plants as compensation. Confidence restored. I will not hesitate to order from NWN in the future.

    My orchid species was received promptly—within four days from the placed order. The freshly dug native species’ corms exhibited robust health & excellent root structure. With my order I was able to use a seasonal discount offered by this Nursery. Overall--a very well operated Nursery.

    Excited for spring

    Sep 22, 2023 Reviewer: Beth

    Super excited to see these little guys bloom in spring. Although native to my area (Western NY), they are currently listed as threatened in my county, so hoping to give a small boost to conservation efforts in the area by establishing these on my property.
