  • Spring: In spring we ship lady-slippers and cobra lily bulbs.  We update the website for spring ordering by mid-December.

    This spring we will be shipping plants on the week of: April 12th.
    Please note: If necessary, we may change the shipping dates depending on the weather.  If your order arrives before the ground is ready for planting, the plants can be held in your fridge for a week or so. Due to the demands of our spring regional wholesale business we are not able to ship plants after these dates.
    Please Note: The cut off date for Spring 2019 ordering is March 30, 2020.

  • Fall: Fall is our main shipping season and is the time that we have the largest selection of plants available. Over the years we have found fall to be a great time to ship and plant lady-slippers and the other woodland wildflowers we offer. At this time these spring-blooming plants are completely dormant and easily settle into their new homes. We update the website for fall ordering by early July.

    Shipping dates for Fall 2019 are the weeks of: September 30th and October 7th.
    Please Note: The cut off date for ordering is Sept. 22nd, 2019

  • Wanting to add to an existing order? Simply place another order via our secure Online Shopping Cart or the printable order form and indicate in the "Special Order Instructions" box that this is an addition to an existing order. When you do so, we will combine your orders and charge the lowest applicable shipping and handling charges.

Payments: Payment must accompany your order; this reserves your plants. We accept checks, money orders and credit cards and PayPal. Credit card orders can be placed using the shopping cart system or with a printed order form and sent by mail. If you pay by credit card, your card will be charged when you place your order. If an order cannot be filled due to unforeseen circumstances, you will receive a refund during the shipping season. If you wish to cancel your order before it is shipped, just let us know and we will send you a refund at that time.
