    Shipping Dates for Plant Material

    Thank you for your support! We are honored to be able to provide you with our live fresh herbs, and share the joys of gardening with you. We are working hard to get your plants to you, and want to provide you with information regarding our shipping schedule.

      1. 'Shipping Begins' dates are approximate based on the previous year's shipping schedule. Actual dates are subject to change with weather conditions including temperatures in your area as well as ours.
      2. It is our goal to ship plants at just the right time for your particular area. We will check your zone, check the weather and ship when it is safe! We encourage customers to order early to ensure that you get just what you want - 'first come, first served'!
      3. There are some plants that are more sensitive to extremes in temperature, therefore these ship dates may not apply in cases when ordering these plants.

      PLANT SHIPPING STATEMENT


      It is our goal to ship plants at just the right time for your particular area. Some of the plants can be shipped year round, while others require specific timing. We encourage customers to order early to ensure that you get just what you want - first come, first served! We avoid shipping plants near the end of the week to avoid having them sit in a warehouse over the weekend. Requesting Express Shipping at the end of the week does not guarantee that plants will ship that week. Regretfully we cannot ship outside the continental U.S. or to Alaska. Please be sure your address is correct (incorrect addresses result in extra charges to you and delayed shipments). Postal box users please give a physical address for shipments.

      Our top-quality plants are packed in our own greenhouses by our own staff, in a manner to ensure that you receive them in perfect condition. Once they arrive at their destination, care in handling is a must. We include instructions for planting in every order. And, you are always welcome to contact us with any questions you may have.

      The time, gas and frustration you save by not running around town looking for these plants from garden center to garden center will more than pay for the shipping!

      EMAIL ADDRESSES are how we contact you should we have questions regarding your order, notifying you of your shipment delivery or relay other important information. Your email and personal information WILL NOT be used for any other purpose.

      LIVE PLANT GUARANTEE


      Every plant we ship has been grown  and packed by our staff of dedicated employees. On occasion, we will ship plants from our contracted growers who have been hand-picked by us, and we have been doing business with them for over 20 years. Each plant is of the finest quality - inspected by us, packed by us and sent to ensure that you receive a healthy product.

      Inspect your plants immediately upon arrival. If there are problems, please email our office within 48 hours of arrival. Remember that plants will experience a little wear in their travels, so expect a yellow leaf or two and it is not unusual to find a broken stem as well. Plants will perk up with proper care. Follow our planting and care instructions carefully.


      100 % GUARANTEE: Our plants are of the highest quality and are healthy when they leave our greenhouse. Please contact us via info@thegrowers-exchange.com. We are here to help so please contact us.
