(We are unable to ship live plants outside the continental USA, to the states of CA, OR, WA or to APO or FPO addresses due to agricultural restrictions)

                                              All of our well rooted starter plants are shipped in 2.5 inch containers.  
                                                           The above photo shows plants ready for shipping. 


Plants are shipped by USPS priority mail. If plants are ordered during the Spring or Fall planting season they will generally ship within a week after we receive your order weather permitting and should arrive within 2-3 business days.

 (We do not ship live plants during the hottest months of Summer or the coldest months of Winter.) Plants ordered in the Summer are shipped Late Sept - Nov. 15 and if ordering during the Winter months they will be shipped March 1 - June 30 in accordance with your planting zone weather permitting. You will receive an email with the tracking number when your package ships.. Occasionally shipments may be delayed due to weather. Please allow additional time of up to a week or more when placing orders during holidays. Generally, orders received before noon on Sunday will ship the following Monday or Tuesday. During our busiest months orders going to Georgia or nearby states may ship on Wednesdays.

If you have a specific date you would like your plants to be shipped, please leave a note under the "comment" section on the order page and we will try our best to accommodate you.


COVID-19 SHIPPING/REFUND POLICY CHANGE:  Due to the ongoing coronavirus,  we will no longer be replacing or refunding dead or damaged plants due to USPS late delivery or non-delivery of packages. Your plants will be packaged well and shipped by priority mail which under normal circumstances should take 2 - 3 business days to reach you.    If your package arrives late and the plants are dead or damaged,  please contact your local post office or to file a claim.    We cannot ship live plants to AK,  CA,  HI, OR, WA, outside the continental USA or to FPO or APO addresses at this time due to agricultural restrictions.  

We do our best to package your plants accordingly during periods of extreme heat or cold, but no matter how well they are packaged, plants simply won't survive being left in a hot mail box or outdoors in freezing temperatures for extended periods of time. Therefore we ask that you be available to receive your package and open it as soon as possible after it is delivered. We cannot stress this enough... especially during hot weather, if you are not available to receive your package right away it may be helpful to have it delivered to a friend, neighbor, relative, or to your place of work so that the package will not sit outside in the weather. If you are going to be away, please contact us and we will be happy to reschedule the shipment for a more convenient time.

Plants are shipped in their 3 "deep nursery pots. Identification tags will be included.  Some of the plants we sell look very similar, we take every effort to ensure that you are receiving the plant you ordered.

In some instances, your plants may be cut back for shipping purposes. Plants may or may not be in bloom at time of shipment. Plants shipped during late Fall or early Spring may be in a semi-dormant or dormant state.

Contact Us if you have any questions or concerns once your shipment arrives.
