What People Are Saying About Us…

I can’t say enough good things about Chris and his company, Natives of Corkscrew. The quality of the plants is high, and the price is as competitive as I could find. I was able to do exactly what I wanted/needed to do in our huge front lawn because of it-otherwise, I‘d have been forced into some concessions. Things are filling in very nicely from my Jan 3rd installation, and the very small handful of plants that didn’t make it during this dry, hot-then-cold, windy winter, are being happily replaced by Chris. The wildflowers are huge and the seed-grown Muhly (hard to find) is going to be stunning. I have a large backyard project coming, and Chris will have my business for that as well. Highly recommended!

Great Nursery! My wife and I spent the better part of our morning admiring all of the great native plant selections. If you want it they have it. They also have a range of sizes for many of the different plants. The owner, Chris, is very knowledgeable and helpful. He made it easy in deciding what plants would do well for us and how to take care of them. We left the nursery with some Green Buttonwoods and Sweetbay Magnolias.

I had set out to purchase some native milkweed, as I recently had a new batch of baby monarch caterpillars and not enough food to give them. I found Natives of Corkscrew through the Florida Association of Native Nurseries (FANN) website. The owner, Chris, explained to me that he not only had native milkweed, but native FLORIDA milkweed, which is very difficult to find!

(You may be asking, “what’s the difference? Native is native, right?” Not quite. A lot of native milkweed is often grown out of state, where the climate is far different than Fort Myers. Florida native milkweed is far better suited for our climate!)

Chris was very easy to work with and exceptionally accommodating. I was very impressed by his knowledge, professionalism, and enthusiasm for native plants! While it was a bit of a drive to get to their location, I was extremely pleased with the plants that I received from them!

All in all, A+ customer service and products! I will definitely be purchasing from here in the future!
