The Five Most Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How big are the plants?
A.They are usually shipped in 6 oz. pots. In order to give you the most value for your money we try to keep these plants under 8 inches high because they will grow rapidly to full size after you receive them. This affords you the greatest value for your money and keeps your shipping costs to a minimum. Sizes vary by variety and are usually indicated in the ad. In order to get your plants to you in a timely fashion we will in rare cases ship plants that are smaller than indicated. These plants are an exceptional value and will soon grow to the size indicated and beyond.
Q. How long will it take to receive my plants?
A. Plants. Our goal is to ship plants within 7 – 10 days after we receive payment (or check clears.) 95% of shipments are within that time frame with over half being less than 10 days. (If your plants don’t arrive in this time period please email us if we haven’t emailed you first.)
