We strive to get your plants to you as quickly and healthy as possible.

Great question and we appreciate your concern for your plants! We include one complimentary heat pack in orders November through March when appropriate. With our greenhouse being located in Ohio, our weather is variable and we will occasionally have a really warm couple of days scattered throughout this time period, in which we would not send heat packs because it would cook your plants. We also look at what state your order is shipping to in order to determine if it's in need of a heat pack or not. We may opt to send an extra heat pack with larger orders if we deem it is necessary.
Heat packs do a lovely job of protecting temperature-sensitive plants that are being shipped during the winter months. They heat up over the course of 6 hours and steadily release heat into the box for 72 hours. Depending on how long your delivery time is, your heat pack may arrive and no longer feel warm. Rest assured that the heat pack did indeed do its job!

Oh no! We hate to hear that. Unfortunately, even though all plants are healthy when they depart, things can happen during their time in transit. If you open your package and are unhappy with the condition your plants showed up in, please send us an email with pictures of your plants and we'd be happy to take a look and see what's going on and how we can help.
We do not accept returns of plants; they will not survive the return trip. We offer provisional refunds on plants within 7 days of the shipped date.
We do not offer refunds for plants that did not survive your care. If you are concerned about your plants health contact us ASAP. We will do our best to help guide you in any way we can.
We grow a majority of the plants shown on our website from our stock collection. Unfortunately, sometimes we will get as few as 2 or 3 plants in a crop or will run out of a particular crop before the next one is ready to go. We try our best to keep our availability up to date. If you see something you want, we recommend typing in your email address where prompted to be notified when it becomes available again.
