Ordering and shipping information

 

SHIPPING  Plants are shipped without soil but with roots protected from moisture loss. Shipping will by USPS Priority Mail unless you request shipping by other

means & additional charges are paid. We had great results past years shipping with USPS & plants shipped arrived healthy within the week in the USA. USPS parcels

are delivered on Saturdays and continue to travel over weekends. We use USPS Express or Priority Mail for our foreign shipments. Please contact us Foreign shipping

instructions for rates and other details .  YouTube Video of how we ship:  https://youtu.be/0GIBkQqSQbc

SUBSTITUTIONS & REFUNDS - Supplies of plants are limited to available stock. We will not substitute without your permission. A list of acceptable substitutes

is suggested, particularly if ordering later in the season. Some of the newer varieties are in shorter supply & some varieties sell out fast, so please order early.

You will be notified promptly of out of stock varieties unless you have provided a list of substitutes.

NORMAL SHIPPING DATES

Shipping dates for Beesia, Epimediums, Ferns & Hostas: mid May to October 1, 2023.  After that date, we can ship based on your climate conditions.

We begin shipping all plants in Mid May in the order received. Dates above are the approximate times when the epimediums, ferns & hostas have begun to "harden

off" & can better handle shipment & replant. You can either choose ASAP, in which case we will ship when appropriate for your order (some of the ferns can

be shipped at any time). Shipping days are approximately three days a week starting on Mondays. If you live in an area with hot& humid summers, we suggest

ordering for shipment in spring or fall. We can't guarantee their performance if shipped during summer. Also, Athyrium fern fronds can be quite brittle. Therefore some frond

breakage can occur in shipment despite our best efforts to avoid this from occurring . The new fronds will take their place in short order.

GUARANTEE - All plants are freshly packaged, labeled true to name, & healthy when shipped. If there are any problems, please notify us within 5 days of receipt

of shipment & we will replace any plant that you are not happy with. We can't be responsible for your climate or growing conditions. All our plants and growing

areas are regularly inspected by Oregon USDA inspectors.
