Shipping Methods

We are sticklers about packaging and shipping your order in a way that guarantees healthy plants upon arrival. If plants are damaged on arrival, just let us know and we'll send you new ones or offer a full refund.

Looking strong even in our droght

Everything arrived looking good and well packed. Root balls had entirely filled the containers, but not at a level that took significant effort to free up. Only small problem is it shipped so quick we were still out of town when it arrived. Still looked great when we got home two days later and opened everything. Plants look great. I have been watering, but they haven't had any natural help and still look great (2 weeks?).

happy grass

Plants were well packed and the folks assured me that the brown ones (porcupine and japanese silver) would be 100% OK.
The green one is a huge Pink Pampas. They are all growing weel.
I live in FL so it was impressive that the plants from OR looked so healthy .

Porcupine Grass

Very pleased with both the plants and the service. Plants were packaged with great care and were very healthy upon arrival. This was our second order and will definitely be ordering in the future.

The plants arrived within 10 days or so and they were ok due to how well they were packed. Don’t worry about the shipping interval. Plants were immediately unpacked, watered and let out in the sun for a day which perked them right up. We planted them as directed and so far, so good 😊

Arrived in great shape

It’s looking good in the ground. Now I can’t wait until next spring or whenever it gets warm and it
gets to start growing.
