Getting your plants to you in prime condition is very important to us. We store our bare-root plants under refrigeration and have an innovative system that ensures plant health for up to 12 days packaged inside the box! Regardless of where you live, you will receive them in optimum condition, dormant and ready to grow.
Bare root trees: Pruned to fit in a 8x8x40 inch box that can hold approximately 4 trees.
1 gallon pots: Can be shipped in 2 or 4 plants per box depending on box size.
Each order is unique and shipping estimates are based on the number of plants, sizes of plants, type of address, and other variables. Extra large plants, bags of fertilizers, or pounds of seeds may incur additional shipping fees. If this happens we will contact you by phone or email to take additional payment before shipping.
Once your package has shipped, the tracking number is sent via email by our automated system. Please be sure to include your email when you place an order to receive the tracking information.
You may specify the approximate date you would like to receive your plants by contacting us if you have limiting circumstances and can only receive your plants at a certain time. Otherwise, we ask for patience as we will ship your plants to arrive at the best planting time for your area. While we cannot guarantee the exact date of delivery, we will do our best to get your order to you by the date desired.
UPS Ground Shipping is the most economical means to ship plants outside of the Northwest and California. It is not available year round because of hot and cold weather extremes. There is a flat rate of $25 to cover the cost of the first box, and then the cost goes up incrementally for additional weight. Ground shipping takes up to 5 business days and plants will sometimes be held over the weekend. However, we use special methods to insure that the plants can survive their length of time in the box and will arrive in good condition!
Shipping method for all summer orders East of the Rockies.
We realize that this is an expensive way to ship, however for some locations and times of year, it is simply the best way to get you your plants in good condition. We trust you will be pleased with the fresh and healthy condition of your plants on arrival if you are concerned about the transit times affecting your plants.
