Delivery Date

If you request a specific date, we will ship your plants as close to the time you request as possible.
If you do not request a specific date –

  • Winter and Spring orders – we will send at the appropriate time for Spring planting in your area
  • Summer and Fall orders – we will send as soon as possible, normally within one to two weeks. PLEASE NOTE – We will do our best to ship as quickly as possible, but the plants are growing in the ground, not sitting on a shelf, so it takes some time to get them dug and ready to ship.

We normally include bonus plants equal to about 20% of your order. We’ll choose something you’re sure to love!
