Shipping Note:

The type of product you order or the weather in our area or yours may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible. Large orders may be shipped in more than one package.

Bare-root perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until full dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and success in your garden. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window.

In all cases, we choose the fastest, most efficient way to send your order.

For trees and other oversize items, we do not ship to PO boxes and it will be delivered via FedEx Home delivery.

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate.
