Substitutions: We will not substitute plants unless you have noted preferred substitutes on the order.
Plant Availability: We ship on a first-come, first-served basis, so we cannot guarantee that all the plants listed in catalogue will be available at all times, in fact, we can say that never are all plants available at the same time. For pickup we will hold uoto four days.
Shipping: We ship via Expedited or Express Post from mid-September through to the end of January. We take a break in the Fall from October 11th- November 10th. If your parcel is stolen on your porch we will not replace it.
Shipping Charges: These charges have been changed as our charges do not cover the actual cost on most shipments and that will need to change. Shipping is expensive even by ground by Canada Post. Labour costs have also increased and we will now include a packing fee. We will assess this every year now and gradually increase shipping charges until it covers our costs. On average an order takes more than one hour to Pick, prepare, pack and take to the Post office.
Guarantee: We do not guarantee our plants will grow for you or be hardy in your area. We will ship any plant to any area. If you kill it, it doesn't make it through a winter or doesn't sprout the next year, you run over it, a squirrel eats it, if it is too wet, gets frozen, gets stepped on, your neighbors dog pees on it we take no responsibility for it, these things are all beyond our control. Sometimes we grow a plant for 10 years only to see it killed by neglect or kindness in two weeks. We ship healthy, true to name plants usually on Mondays or Tuesdays each week during fall or winter. However, our quality guarantee expires after the plants have been in transit to you for more than four days. Claims due to our error must be made immediately, if valid will be dealt with as a credit towards your next order.
Back Orders: We are unable to do back orders. Please reorder.
Confirmation: We do not send out Confirmations. We suggest you make a copy of your order if you need to look at it before your plants arrive. We will phone you if you indicate you want a confirmation on your order form.
