mail order update

We are in the process of updating for 2016, and will have a mail order list together shortly, with shipping beginning in April.

 

We’ve been unofficially doing mail order for some time, and have always intended to make the practice more accessible, but have been on the far side of the learning curve, as, in addition to our seasonal retail/plant show schedule, it becomes a bit like having a multiple personality disorder: growing the same plants on two different schedules, nearly as two different crops, in two different sizes, often with two different rounds of propagation. To resolve this, the plants we are listing for mail order availability are those that are happenstantially of conveniently ship-able size.  If there are plants on the general list that are of interest but don’t appear on the mail order list, please feel free to inquire, as they may be available in larger sizes.

SHIPPING: We regret that we are unable to ship to FL, HI, or any state west of the Mississippi River as it would require a chemical regimen that may prove harmful to us, our children and pets.  We may be able to send seasonally bare root; feel free to inquire. 

-Most shipping will be via USPS priority, which has the great advantage of Saturday delivery, though we may occasionally ship via UPS.  We ship plants Monday and Tuesday, with the aim of having packages arrive on Thursday or Friday.  If you have a preferred ship date or carrier,  please let us know, otherwise one will be assigned to you (and we will notify you of same).

-We aim to charge actual shipping costs.  For orders, shipping will be calculated at 20% of the retail cost (with a minimum of $20), with the difference, if any, refunded.  

POT SIZES:  Federal law requires us to state pot sizes . Of course there’s no necessary relationship between pot size and plant size- large pots can house very small plants- but please know that, as with our on the road sales, portability is our primary requirement, sales our general aim, and therefore we generally try to grow large plants in small pots. In spring some plants may be fresh divisions that have not yet filled out their containers, but they’re healthy, and ready to take off for you. Some plants, too, are simply naturally smaller.

A 3 1/8 ” wide by 3 15/16” deep 1.00 pt.
