Order and shipping information.

Certain plants require a specific ship time. In spring or fall, shrubs, roses, and trees are all shipped semi-dormant and semi-bareroot. Since quantities are sometimes limited and items sell out, orders that are placed early are put into our system and the plants requested are held for you until the proper shipping time. We do not charge your credit card until two weeks prior to shipping. We also send notification of the exact ship date so you can be expecting your plants.

For larger shrubs (3' tall), there is an addtional $5.00 each charge. For 4' - 6' shrubs there is an additional $10.00 each charge. This is a pass through of shippers "oversize box charge".



These shrubs are field grown blooming size. Container sizes listed are the sizes sold in nursery and same sizes shipped, but most shrubs are shipped bare-root. Sizes listed in catalog (before price) is the size shipped. Also larger field sizes and B&B available at nursery.
