We know you want your plants, and we want to get them to you but we do have to be careful. These are perishable goods and even if your weather is PERFECT, they have to travel and sometimes overnight in areas that are too COLD or too HOT.
Mother Nature is not as scheduled as we are - there are times when we are simply waiting for one crop to be ready - we only ship plants when we KNOW that they are ready to go into the ground and flourish.Shipping Policies:

When will my plants ship?
It is our goal to ship plants at just the right time for your particular
area. Some of our plants can ship nearly year round, while others
require specific timing in order to achieve ideal growth. We do
encourage customers to order early to ensure that you get just what you
want: first come, first served!
We use the USDA Zone Chart
an industry accepted standard.
We will check your zone, check the weather and ship when it is safe. In
general, Fall shipping begins early September through Christmas, weather
permitting. Spring shipping begins in late March through June, weather

schedule. Actual dates are subject to change with weather conditions
including temperatures in your area as well as ours
In the very rare case where weather may prevent delivery of
tender plants intended as gifts, we will send an announcement of your
gift and then ship as soon as it is safe
There are some plants that are more sensitive to extremes in
temperature, therefore these ship dates may not apply in cases when
ordering these plants.
orders placed after the last week of the Fall or Spring schedule will
be shipped ASAP, which is usually 5-7 days after the order is placed
depending on when the order came in during the week.
Please note: We avoid shipping plants at the end of the week so that
they won't sit in a shipping warehouse over the weekend. Any orders
coming in at the end of the week will be shipped the following week,
regardless of the method chosen.
