With the onset of cold weather in many parts of the country, it is clear that winter shipping policies need to go into effect. Just so you know, in winter we always check the 10-day forecast in your area and possible transfer points (usually Chicago or Denver for east coast shipments). If the lows are predicted to be below 26 degrees F, we will hold your plants until it is safe to ship. Otherwise, we will include a 72-hour heat pack as needed, at no extra charge. We try to notify customers whose orders are being held more than a week or so. We want your plants to arrive safely.
