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.

Trees shipped in oversize boxes (5'-6') will have an addtional shipping fee of $10.00 each. This is a pass through of the carriers "oversize box charge".

The sizes of plants sold are not young transplants, but field grown plants ready to go into the landscape: the same plants that are sold directly at the nursery. We do not pot all plants in gallon size containers, but pot them in the correct size container for the root system and its required growing space.

Since our catalog serves both mail order and Plant Farm visitors, B&B (balled & burlapped) trees are not for mail order. Varying sizes available at nursery and priced accordingly. Understory trees are those which will grow under another tree's canopy. Sizes listed at price is size shipped.
