Shipping

We ship seeds for one flat rate regardless of weight and qty. Seeds are shipped via First Class USPS with a tracking number in a padded waterproof envelope to protect your purchase.

Delivery is typically 3-5 days (barring USPS delays).

Live plants typically start shipping at the end of April after our weather stabilizes.

Live plant orders are shipped Monday-Thursday to keep them from sitting at the post office through a weekend. 

If your order includes both seeds and plants when it is too cold to ship plants, they will arrive separately.

Live plants are sent USPS Priority with tracking. Delivery typically takes 2-4 days.

We will hold plant orders until temperatures are reasonable, typically April-November (WEATHER PREMITTING).

  • USPS products and packages may require more time to be delivered due to limited transportation availability as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 impacts.
  •  Please note that we fill our orders from multiple locations, therefore items may deliver to you in separate shipments.

Order delays may occur when inclement weather is impacting our nursery location, our shipping carriers, or our production vendors.  These delays help us protect your plant order to ensure it is received at its highest quality

We pack and ship orders in the order that they are placed. Average order processing time is 2-5 days, but we do our best to get them out as quickly as possible. 

We continuously sow seeds and transplant year-round but please keep in mind that your entire order may not be ready all at the same time and is not considered ready until most or all of the items are available. 

If you have a specific timeline that you need your plants by it is best to contact us BEFORE ordering so we can give you a better timeline.

We fulfill all orders in the order they are placed and will send you a notification email with pick up or shipping info.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER. 

If an item is out of stock, we will refund it.

We have a 10% restocking fee for all orders canceled after 48 hours.
