Order Changes

One week before your order ships, we charge your credit card (if you didn't pay via PayPal).

When your credit card is charged, your order is locked and we can no longer make changes. A change up or down in the order amount would require an additional charge or refund, and we don't have the capacity to accomodate while we're shipping plants and getting orders ready.

Please let us know of any order changes 2 weeks or more before your scheduled ship date

Fine Print

  • All Live Plant orders ship via Priority Mail, UPS Ground, or UPS 3Day depending on pricing and transit time to ensure plants arrive in 3 days or less
  • Plants ship Monday through Wednesday, to arrive Tues through Fri. Orders are trackable from My Account. A notification will be sent on shipment with delivery details.
  • We encourage you to order early, but take delivery when appropriate for your area. Plants are reserved based on when the order arrives, not when the order ships.
  • Please do not take delivery too early, a common mistake that brings poor results. Live Plants need warm soil.
  • See here for our Safe Delivery Weeks. This is the earliest that we will guarantee safe delivery to your area, not our suggested planting date. We can ship earlier, but you will need to sign off on liability if plants arrive cold damaged.
  • Please read our planting guidelines for when to plant in your area
