Shipping Information

WHEN TO SHIP:

We ship orders year-round, even July and August if it is cool enough. Most orders will be sent by Fed Ex. 

Please indicate a desired shipping date on the order form (select week by choosing an available Mondays). We cannot guarantee shipment by this date due to unforeseen circumstances, but we will try very hard to accommodate your wishes. If items are backordered, your order will be held until all items are in stock. This helps to keep shipping costs down.  If you want the order to ship when items are ready, you will have to pay separate shipping.

It's usually best to plant trees and shrubs in spring, as soon as the soil is not frozen. This avoids damage to tender leaves from shipping and frost and allows the plant to come out of dormancy in its new home.

If you need to hold your plants until you're ready to plant them we ask that you unpack the boxes, remove the paper from the tops and remove plastic to allow for watering and drainage.

SHIPPING CHARGES

There is much more to shipping your order besides the actual transportation costs. Processing your order involves paperwork, pulling, wrapping and packing your plants. We DO try to keep shipping costs to a minimum, despite annual increases from FedEx.

Please add minimum packing and shipping charge of

  • $15 or 25% of plant order total, whichever is greater; for the following states: AL, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, NC, NJ, NY, NH, OH, PA, RI, SC, TN, VA, VT, WV.
  • $15 or 30% of plant order total for orders shipped to other states, EXCEPT AK, AZ, CA, HI, OR, WA, OR OUTSIDE THE US, AS WE DO NOT SHIP TO THESE AREAS.

Please add 6.625% sales tax on orders shipped to NJ addresses. We are required to collect NJ sales tax on shipping/handling charges as well as the plant total.

Please add $20.00 for EACH oversized plant ordered (indicated by an asterisk (*) in the catalog. Due to changes in the calculation of dimensional weight (oversized packages) by FedEx, we must regretfully include this additional charge.
