Our Experience

Established in 1977, Jungle Music Palms and Cycads has thirty seven years experience in helping home owners and plant enthusiasts create wonderful gardens, find rare palms and cycads, and succeed in what they are growing.  


Phil Bergman, the Owner, is past President of the International Palm Society and Southern California Palm Society.  He is an experienced lecturer and author on the subject.  He has written many articles on palm tree care. 


His son, Jesse, also an author and lecturer on palms and cycads,  has been doing the same for over a decade.  There are also several other staff members who've accumulated over forty years at the nursery.  Together, they've helped thousands of people create the "garden of their dreams".  There are few nurseries around with the experience of the Jungle Music staff.

Picking the right palm trees or cycads for your location

When starting or expanding a garden, one needs to know:

Which plants will survive in your locality?

Which require sun?  Shade?

How tall do species get?

Will plants block a view?

How do I care for them?

How much water do they need?

Are they easy to maintain?


Our staff at the nursery can easily answer all of these questions for you.  If you want to research this on your own, we have lots of articles on these topics at this site that will answer your questions.  But, we've found many people are overwhelmed with the information in this Site because there's so many species of palm plants. 


Because of this, we invite customers to drop into the nursery and we'll guide you through the selection and education process.  We have photographs of what the plants will look like when mature.  A "complicated" thing becomes quite simple.  And, we do this for customers for free. Or, we can do on-site consults.  Read More


If you need more extensive help and a site visit to your property, we offer this service as well.  We do charge for it, but someone would give recommendations of species to plant.  This consultation service  will guide you through your selections, garden layout and plant care. 


No matter which approach you choose, we can assist you and offer you the most interesting and beautiful plants on the market.

"Not ready to plant yet"?

This is never a problem.  We can hold purchased plants until you are ready for the plants.  We do this all the time for customers.  This gives you the time to select your plant material while the builders are working.  Then, have us deliver them right at the perfect time for planting.

Although there is a charge for delivery, it is available to all areas of the country. For smaller orders, we utilize Federal Express.  We offer local deliveries in our trucks to most areas of Southern California.  Or, if you live a long distance away, we utilize independent trucking services to quickly bring plants right to your location.  A very affordable technqiue for long distance shipping is to put plants on a shrink wrapped pallet.  This works well for 15g plant size.  We get a lot of plants on one of those pallets.
