Potted Plants Shipping Schedule

If you ordered potted plants, they will ship directly from our California Nursery and will arrive separately from any flower bulbs you may have ordered. Our goal is to get your plants to you at the perfect time for transplanting into your garden. Your specific ship date will vary depending on when all plants on your order are established and as weather in your region permits. If there is a significant delay in one of the plants you ordered becoming ready for shipment, we may (at our discretion) split your order into two shipments. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate ship date requests due to their individual growth rates and availability.

Zones 8-11

Begins April 1st.

Zones 3-7

Begins May 1st.

Weather Advisory

Extreme cold may cause damage to some products. In the event of extreme cold, we may include a heating packet with the product to keep it from freezing. If necessary, we may also delay shipment until it is safe to ship the products. Please be aware of extreme weather conditions when ordering and understand that it may impact the timeframe in which your order is shipped.

Holiday Shipping Deadlines

To receive your order by Christmas, please place your order at least 10 business days before December 25th. Due to the high volume of shipments during the holiday season, any orders placed less than 10 business days from December 25th are not guaranteed to arrive by the holiday.

Shipping Charges

Orders are shipped via the best choice depending on package size, weight, and destination. Our goal is to keep shipping charges and transit times as reasonable as possible. If you would like to have your order split into multiple shipments, we do charge an extra fee. Please see our Policies & FAQ page for more information.
