"add-to-cart" buttons are active. If you want plants right away during this period,
you should check the weekly updated plant
availability list to see what is shipping.
If you are in areas that are freezing
or have not reached their average last frost date or are reaching
temperatures over 100 degrees, it will be necessary to waive your
warranty to receive pots or plug trays.
About mid May
only "add-to-cart" buttons with in stock items are active so there is no need to check
availability. Plug trays are sold only
from availability for immediate delivery. They may not be back ordered or pre-ordered.

PROCESSING: Once your order has
been placed, you will automatically receive a receipt in your inbox. Save
this receipt! It will have your order id #. It is necessary to use
this number on all correspondence and when calling. We cannot
look your order up if you do not have an order id#. If you do
not receive an automatic receipt, either your email address has been typed incorrectly,
your spam filter caught it, or
the order did not go through. It is necessary for your email to be correct
so that we may inform you of your ship date and send you your tracking
number when your package leaves. If you have spam
filters on your email, it will be necessary to add
firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a back order pending and your email
address changes, please let us know, so we may inform you of any problems
or changes that may arise concerning your order. Because of the difficulty in getting
in touch, we do not call customers about their orders. You are welcome to
call us Monday through Thursday, 9 to 2 PST at 559 338 2775.

It is necessary to use your physical street address; UPS does not deliver to a P.O. Box. If the package is to be delivered to an apartment,
UPS may automatically
a signature. Please make sure to take this into consideration when you
decide where to have your order delivered. Orders are shipped on an ASAP basis, usually the week after we receive your
order. High volume or adverse weather conditions may delay your order. Early
spring orders to cold winter areas will receive an email order acknowledgment
indicating the expected spring ship date. We do not ship to areas that are
freezing or on a route that has freezing temperatures. You may choose to waive
your guarantee and receive plants prior to the time we would normally start
shipping in spring by typing "Waive Warranty" in the comment box on the order
form. If you would like us to ship your plants during a specific week, indicate that date on the
order form in the comments box.
Please make sure to double check your address. At this point in time we are charged $13.35
by UPS if even one
digit in your address is incorrect and we reserve the right to charge your card
for this fee. (Please note UPS increases this amount at random intervals)
SHIPPING COSTS: UPS charges by
the box. We have boxes that hold 6, 12, 18, 24 and 36. There is one fee
for a 12 pack, for instance. If you choose 7 plants they go into a 12
pack box and you get charged as though there were 12 plants in the box.
Which means you can ship 12 plants for the same price as 7, 18 plants
for the same price as 13, etc. With UPS, the first pound or, in our
case, the first 6 plants, is the most expensive per plant and the 36
pack is the least expensive per plant. After 36 plants, it starts over
again with a 6, 12, 18, or 24 pack.
have 7 days from the
date of arrival of your plants to notify us of any
problems caused in shipping. We do not guarantee plants once they
are removed from their containers. We will either send replacements or a refund, depending on the
circumstances of the problem. Refunds under 5.00 are issued as store credit.
Refunds over 5.00 are issued as a credit back on your card or as store
credit, whichever you prefer. Plants are not returnable.
Your guarantee does not cover your plant shipment if you are
not home when the carrier makes the first attempt to deliver your package.
Riding back and forth in the delivery vehicle or spending the weekend in the
warehouse because you are not at home when the carrier arrived is not
covered. We are more than willing to work with you on arrival dates and can
ship the package to any address you choose.
Also, not covered are packages with
incorrect or incomplete addresses. Your shipping
label is created from the address you enter on your shopping cart order
form. If the carrier is unable to deliver your
package and it is returned to us, the plants will be dead and we will not
refund your money or send new plants.
For other items---Books are non returnable. All other gardening
supplies may be returned only if in original unopened packaging. Shipping
is not refunded for these items. Should your product have a manufacturer's
default, you will need to contact us for a return merchandise
authorization (RMA) number.
Cancellations and changes can be made up to the week before your order is due to be
shipped. If you wish to cancel an order, email us at
email@example.com or call us at 559 338 2775.
