Packing and Shipping Your Order:
We take most plants out of their containers (plants start in either 2D, 3D or 4D pot sizes, depending on the plant), bag them in plastic, secure the bags to keep in moisture, and pack them in appropriately sized cardboard boxes with newspaper to secure the plants and prevent damage. We use as much post-consumer and recycled materials as we can to pack your shipment.
We ship our plants via UPS. We do not ship to PO boxes. Once we generate a label, you will receive a tracking number. We reserve the right to hold shipments due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, however we will contact you if your order ship date has a delay of more than one week.
