See below for details about purchasing retail plants.
Basically there are two ways you can obtain retail plants from us: either you can pick them up, or we can deliver them to you. Here's how it works.
Picking Up Your Order
Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment to pick up the plants of your choosing.
For larger orders, plants can be delivered by us to your doorstep. For this service we request that you fill out an Order Form and make payment in advance. Please indicate if there is any time you would not like your plants delivered, and if you have a P.O. Box, don't forget to give us a physical address where you want the plants. When you fill out your order form, check the space that says "delivery", and add sales tax (unless you reside out of state), but not shipping charges, into your total. Please also include the delivery fee, if applicable: there is no charge for local deliveries if a minimum order is met (see below).
We deliver plants according to the following price schedule:
Are these plants available for mail-order?
Many of the 1 gallon* plants are, but larger pot sizes than 1 gallon are available for pick-up or delivery only. We incorporate into our Mail-Order List and Catalog those 1-gallon plants that are not too tall, heavy, or otherwise awkward to ship. Please note that 1 gallon mail order plants are offered at a different price schedule from this list. We suggest that you place your mail-order strictly from the Mail-Order List or Catalog to prevent confusion. (Essentially the mail-order price for these plants includes a $4 shipping surcharge, which we do because their weight adds disproportionately to the cost of shipping relative to the smaller mail-order plants. We have found that this accurately reflects the true cost of shipping them, making everything as fair as possible.)
Are the smaller plants from the mail-order catalog/list available for delivery/pick-up?
Yes! Pick-up and delivery are also available for all plants in the Mail-Order Catalog, according to the same picking-up specifications and delivery price schedule as listed above. This may be a less expensive option than shipping for local customers interested in a large number of plants. Plants from this list and the mail-order catalog may also be combined in your order for delivery or pick-up.
We're happy to clarify anything written here. Write us at email@example.com and we'll discuss the ideal mode of delivery for what you wish to order, and quote you a price if desired. We're here to help.
*Note on pot sizes: We're going by vernacular usage when using
terms such as "1 gallon", "2 gallon", etc. The pot sizes
are actually somewhat smaller than a true gallon, 2 true gallons, etc.
