How your plants are shipped

We ship all orders as quickly as possible, although we do our best to not ship plants during extreme weather months such as winter.  Understanding your own weather conditions is your responsibility, so please be conscious of weather conditions in your area when you are placing your order.  If it is going to be 90+ degrees, below freezing and snowing, or a hurricane is headed your way, please consider waiting until the weather will be milder. This will help ensure that your plant will do well in transit and milder temperatures are better for planting anyway.

The plants are pulled the same day they are going to ship from the Nurseries.  The plant pulling crew has been trained to pick the highest quality plants from our inventory for your order.  Moisture levels are checked before packaging to ensure your plant(s) arrive in good condition and are ready to plant.

Next, your plants will be secured in one of our custom-made boxes we have designed to ensure safe transit of your plants to your doorstep, utilizing Packing material and methods that have been proven to maintain the correct moisture level and to protect the structure of the plant.  

The box is taped up, a detailed packing list is placed on the outside of your box, and then gently loaded onto our carrier’s transport to arrive at your door within 3 to 5 days.
