If any item you purchased from us does not live, for a one time FREE REPLACEMENT just RETURN THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING LABEL along with your written request within 1 year of receipt.  If you are dissatisfied with any merchandise, return it together with the ORIGINAL SHIPPING LABEL within one year of receipt for a FREE REPLACEMENT.  Replacement guarantee is VOID unless the ORIGINAL SHIPPING LABEL is returned.  For a REFUND  of the purchase price RETURN THE ITEM AND THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING LABEL, with correct postage affixed, within 14 days of receipt.

Not responsible for incidental and consequential damages; we are not responsible for any amount exceeding purchase price (exclusive of shipping and processing).

Cancellation Policy

Only cancellation requests received on the same day your order is received are guaranteed to be honored.  All other cancellation requests must be in writing, but will not be honored if in our judgement the order is irretrievably in process.  Be sure to include your name and address with your request.  We appreciate your understanding.

Substitution Policy

Orders are filled by item number exactly as received.  If an item/variety is unavailable, we reserve the right to substitute an item of equal or greater value.

Shipping Info

When can you expect delivery?  Orders are shipped at the proper planting time for your area.  We expect to ship garden supplies promptly.  Nursery stock items such as trees, shrubs, bulbs and other plants ship depending on availability, when we think it is safe to ship and when it is the proper planting time for your area.  Some tender plants can only be shipped when the weather is warmer.  Some plants list specific time frames for shipping.  In general, we begin shipping to the southern states in March and progress to the northern States as weather permits.  In short, orders are not shipped within a given time from receipt of order, but rather based on many factors including the proper planting time.

Zones of Hardiness

Zone designations are approximate. Many plants can be grown in one zone “colder” than rated by placing in a protected location or by proper winter care (such as mulching). Just try to think of a spot in your landscape that is a little more protected.

Wholesale Policy

Our catalog is not for wholesale use. Our warranty does not cover products that are intended for resale. Contact us directly for large quantity pricing and terms.

Catalog Illustrations

The pictures are of mature plants in the best condition. With proper care, the young plants you buy can and should resemble catalog illustrations when they reach maturity.

Return Check Policy

All returned checks are subject to the state allowable service fee. Returned checks may be electronically debited for the full face value of the check and the state allowable service fee.
