PLANTS, PRICING AND SHIPPING
We really care about our plants customers and pricing. So the following is to help explain some of the changes for this coming season.
Plants: Most are cuttings grown from our stock so we know the correct variety. We have grown them at least a year and list varieties in the catalog available at press time and try to indicate if only a few are available. The plants are evaluated as to hardiness, beautiful flowers, foliage, fruit, etc. The plants are taken out of the containers and tied into plastic bags, then secured into the boxes. We do not ship bare root plants.
Price: It is a difficult decision, so we try to be fair so not only the wealthy can afford them (we are collectors too). The availability, propagation, container growing, as well as nursery costs must come into play.
Shipping: Since shipping costs have risen drastically over the last few years and the boxes for our plants are much larger than other nurseries and therefore much more expensive. We are adjusting our shipping charges after more than 30 years. The following table will be used to calculate our shipping rates. Our minimum has raised but on the larger orders it will work out to less than in the past in many cases.
Minimum shipping charge will now be: $15.00
|$0 to $25.00||$15.00|
|$25.00 to $75.00||$22.00|
|$75.00 to $150.00||$34.00|
|$150.00 to $300.00||$65.00|
|$300.00 to $500.00||$145.00|
Plants are guaranteed true to name and are carefully selected quality plants. Our plants are regularly inspected by the Oregon Agriculture Department. Since we cannot control planting or growing conditions after shipment we cannot be responsible for loss.
We can supply a wholesale catalog upon request to nurseries and landscapers.
