Spring shipping: April 1 - May 31 (or a bit longer, please check). While early spring shipping is preferable for these cold-hardy plants, they have a track record of surviving several days in transit in warmer temps. Our software automatically sends an email with a tracking # when we ship out your order. We normally use the US Postal Service to send out order, but on ocassion, we use one of the other carriers so please carefully check your tracking #*.
If you have a preferred ship date, just let us know, otherwise approximate dates that we begin to ship (but dependent on weather):
Zone 6-9: April 1
Zone 5: April 10
Zone 3-4: April 25 (May 5 in 2019)
Summer shipping: We recommend waiting until fall when the plants go dormant. While we may be able to ship into June a bit, we reserve the right to ship orders received after June 1 in the fall.
Fall shipping: late October/early Nov. Most larger sizes are available for digging and shipping bareroot. We reserve the right to place some items on backorder for early spring shipping.
Please note that we will do as much as we can to facilitate a timely shipment, but depending on various scheduling issues, your order may be delayed from the initial estimated ship date. If so, we will attempt to notify you via email and we greatly appreciate your patience. However, if you have not heard from us or received a tracking # within a week of expected shipping, or have other questions, you are welcome to contact us. During the busiest weeks, we mail out orders all five days of the week. One day extra layover is not a problem as we ensure the roots are moist enough for several days of travel. Please note that Paypal states your order will be shipped within 1-5 days. I don't know how to change Paypal's statement that we will ship in 1-5 days as we cannot always guarantee 1-5 days due to various scheduling contstraints, but we will do our best to work with you according to your needs if you just drop us a note. And finally, it is the customer's responsibility to monitor the tracking/delivery of their package, tho we will assist as much as we can with any claims. usps.com insures up to $100 for lost or damaged packages.
A penny for your thoughts - you're welcome to specify a requested ship date (sorry, Paypal requires .01 or just send us an email for free):

Guarantee & Planting Instructions:
Plants are guaranteed to be in good health when shipped. Plants propagated the previous year are shipped in early spring. They will most likely still be dormant. Actively growing plants propagated this year may be shipped in late spring and fall. All plants have a healthy root system, which is of greater consequence than the actual shipped size. Small sized plants are normally shipped in 2.5" pots, larger ones may be potted in 2.5" or larger pots or dug and shipped bareroot. Please view our Flickr site for Customer Submitted fotos.
If there is any problem with your order, please notify us withing two weeks and we work with you to resolve any issues. We issue credit or refunds for any plants that do not break dormancy. Unfortunately, due to all the variable factors in fall planting we are unable to extend any guarantee over the winter. Be sure to follow planting and care instructions and view a short planting video
Our varieties of honeyberries are recommended for zones 2-5, considered adaptable to zones 6, and somewhat experimental for zones 7-8 (later blooming varieties only). Great care should be given to plants in the warmer zones, planting in partial to full shade and given extra water.
We are not responsible for damage due to shipping error, flood, fire, drought, insect, bird, deer, rabbit, mouse, excessive warm or cold temperatures and unfavorable growing conditions.
We are not a high-falutin' corporation so while we take care to package the plants, we do not use individual plastic form fitted enclosures, so ocassionally labels may fall off and plants may be jostled in shipping.
We will supply larger sizes per availability. In the case a smaller size shipped, a refund for the difference will be issued.
In the case we are unable to supply a certain item due to factors beyond our control (weather, supply from our propagators, etc.) we will notify our customers and place item on back order for the following year.
Note on spring vs fall planting: So far, spring planting has shown higher survival rates than fall planting. More factors are involved in fall planting which are hard to measure, whereas with spring planting one can tell within a few weeks if the plant is going to survive. But scheduling and other factors may still make it worthwhile to plant in the fall.
Any propagation of the plants purchased from HoneyberryUSA is strictly prohibited without a license agreement. The Purchaser agrees to fully comply with this condition when purchasing plants.
