I have been buying plants through the mail for over 30 years. I always thought it was another way for the nurseries to increase their profit. How wrong I was. Trying to figure out how much to charge is an ongoing process. The first year we started to ship, we forgot to take in account a couple of things and lost money on every order. By the third year, we think we have struck a balance on cost vs shipping charges.
Our retail plant sizes are:
3.5” Anderson pot
6” RediRoot air pots
square 1 gallon
- We ship whenever temperatures allow during most seasons of the year. Our regular shipping season is March 1st to October 31st. We will ship outside those dates on a order by order basis.
- Many plants could be shipped during their dormant season
(Some plants are summer dormant, and most winter dormant.)
- We ship on Monday and Tuesday only. Orders will usually be shipped the week after ordering.
We ship using USPS or UPS depending on whoever is cheaper.
These rate quotes are for individual plants shipped directly to your home. For wholesale orders, please email us or call for shipping information.
Our boxes hold up to 6 plants. For the best rate we encourage you to order in full box increments.
