Shipping Information

*Spring shipping has ended. We will not be shipping during July & August.  Any order placed from now through the end of August will ship during September, using the calendar, select one of the 3 open weeks in September 2019.   If you are interested in placing a pickup, please select an available Monday in September and then write in the comments when you would like to pickup.  This time of year we need 2 days advanced notice for pickups. *


We will be doing spring shipping from April 1st, 2019 through the week of June 24th, 2019.  All shipped orders will be sent via FedEx.  Fall shipping will start September 2nd, 2019 through the week of November 11th, 2019.

Please indicate a desired shipping date on the order form (select week by choosing an available Mondays in black). We cannot always 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 has thawed. 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 air circulation, watering and drainage.


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.
  • $18 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 $15.00 for EACH oversized plant ordered (indicated by an asterisk (*) in the catalog.  All plants that are 3-4' or taller or in 3 gallon containers or larger are considered oversized. Due to changes in the calculation of dimensional weight (oversized packages) by FedEx, we must regretfully include this additional charge.


You may pick up your order at the nursery on any of our scheduled open days. Please refer to our Ordering Information page for more info about order pickups.

We are a very small staff and ask that follow our advanced notice for pickups. During April, May and June, we need 5 days advanced notice.  July and August, we need 2 days advanced notice.  September and October, we need 5 days advanced notice.  Anyone who wants a same day pickup, please do not put an order online, just come to the nursery and pick out the plant(s) here and we will check you out onsite.
