Ordering, Shipping & Payment Information


Orders are shipped Monday, Tuesday and sometimes Wednesday.  Holidays and uncooperative weather will sometimes delay shipping. We do not ship in August or mid-December through January, except by special arrangement.

You MUST choose your ship date on the checkout page! If you don't choose, it will default to the earliest ship date available, which may not be appropriate for your zone.

Unfortunately, we are unable to ship out of the country

Combining Orders

If you would like to add plants to your existing order, please place a new order for the plants you wish to add and tell us in the order comments that you would like us to combine your orders. This will reserve your plant for you and help you save some in shipping costs. We do need 1 business day notice in order to combine your orders and even more advance notice is greatly appreciated. 

Gift Certificates

You can purchase either an electronic version of a gift certificate, which can be sent very quickly, or a paper version we send through the mail, which takes longer.  We can process gift certificates within one business day but will also do our best to accommodate emergency gift certificate needs. (We get it!)


We accept VISA, Master Card, Discover, PayPal, and checks by mail. Your credit card is charged upon placing your order, which stakes your claim on your plants. If we are unable to fill your order completely, you will be refunded.
