Spring shipping: Usually mid April - end of May. Our software automatically sends an email with a tracking # when we ship out your order.

Approximate dates that we begin to ship (but dependent on weather and item ordered):

 Southern states: mid April (or earlier dependent on our weather) via UPS
 Mid-latitude states: late April via UPS
 Northern states: early May via UPS

If you have a required ship date (due to travel or unusual circumstances) please contact us.

Fall shipping: orders received in late May throughout the summer will ship in late October/early November. Out of stock items will be listed in November for 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.

During the busiest weeks, we mail out orders all five days of the week. A weekend 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. 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 and ups insure up to $100 for lost or damaged packages.

Availability: We will notify you in as timely a manner as possible if we are out of stock on an item and not send you a substitute prior to checking with you.

Guarantee & Planting Instructions:

Plants are guaranteed to be in good health when shipped. We specify the expected heights but ocassionally plants may be shorter or taller. If they are significantly different in size (more than several inches) we will attempt to notify you prior to shipping or knock a few bucks off. 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 within two weeks and we work with you to resolve any issues. We issue credit or refunds for any plants that do not break dormancy. We normally send replacements in mid to late May or the following fall. 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

Mulching Notes from a WSU Master Gardener

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.
