What to expect: Except for the herbs in 2" & 3" pots, we do not ship pots and soil. Pot grown plants will have most of the
soil removed. Your perennials and herbs will be
kindly wrapped and boxed to ensure a pleasant journey. Most plants will
be actively growing when shipped and, if necessary for safe shipment,
tops may be removed. Some plants may ship while still dormant - be
A word about sizes
and pricing: Our plants continually flow from starts,
into various sized pots, bumped up to larger pots, into the
ground, then divided again. Sizes change from year to year.
Price is based on several factors: size of the
plant; availability & demand, propagation results, and source
(i.e. patented plants are purchased every year). So,
pricing tends to look like this:
Perennials: Divisions and small pots (4", qts.)
$5.00-$6.50; Established gallon pots and select varieties
$6.50-$8.00; Selected varieties $10.00 & up. First year from seed in 3" pots - $3.00-$4.00
Herb shipping: Most of the herbs are grown from seed and timed for my garden center and ready for shipping in May. I can ship them sooner but they will be smaller. I don't ship herbs in the fall.
Bottom Line: Our goal is to exceed your expectation -
please let us know if we do not.
We will ship USPS Priority Mail.
March through June and again mid - August through September
ship your plants early in the week to avoid weekend layovers.
Concerns & returns:If problems arise, let
us know your concerns. We want you to be happy and will work with you to
resolve any issues that arise. We have always worked from the premise
that gardeners are honest, reasonable people and it has served us well.
