Plants are living, growing things and as such, we consistently have our growers monitor the “readiness” of all crops.
Sometimes, a crop may need a bit more time in the oven and we may provide an estimated ship time frame several weeks and/or months down the line. Many times, this is to ensure very full rooting to occur (which helps hold together the root ball in shipping as well as increase transplant success for you, our customer). For example: you may order an item in January. On the site and your confirmation, you may see "Ships in May 2022 (Weather Permitting)".
If you want up-to-date information about ship-time estimates before your order, simply enter your zip code in the “Find Your Growing Zone” box and your specific items’ ship estimates will show up on the website as you surf through all our amazing plant choices. This information will be shown again on your Order Confirmation email that is sent soon after the online order is placed.
