Seasonal Shipping Guidelines:
Please note the shipping guidelines below.
Region and type of plants ordered will determine ship dates, as some plants can tolerate cool weather, but most plants will be thrown into dormancy in the winter months. For example, an iris only order may ship on 4/25, adding a cold weather sensitive tropical plant may move the same order to 5/25. Plants like Water Lettuce or Water Hyacinths, cannot tolerate cool water or nights below 45-50 degrees.
Frost/Freeze dates have nothing to do with our ship dates. We ship at proper planting time, when nighttime temperatures are sufficient for keeping ALL plants on the order actively growing. We will NOT move up plant shipping dates or guarantee any plant before proper planting time for your area.
Once proper planting time has arrived, orders are shipped the next available ship date.
Live plants ship on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays of each week.
CUT OFF TIME FOR SAME WEEK SHIPPING ON PLANTS IS 12 NOON, TUESDAY, EASTERN TIME!
