**Please note that as a courtesy, when available, we do ship some boxes via Priority overnight. There is no additional charge to you. However, this does not guarantee that your order will arrive in 1 day (unless it's Hawaii delivery). In most areas, a Priority overnight just means it will arrive earlier on the expected arrival date.

Due to strict Department of Agriculture requirements, plant material cannot be shipped with non-plant related products. In this case, we use USPS to ship non-plant related products. It is a possibility that you will receive multiple boxes for your order.

When will my order ship?

After your order is placed, please allow for 24-48 hrs processing time.  Your order will then be sent on the next available ship date unless otherwise specified in the order comments box.  We will do our best to accomadate your request.  We cannot guarantee the availability of plants in bud/bloom if you request a ship date that is more than 2 weeks away from the order date.

Any additional requests or errors in providing the correct shipping address will delay your order shipment. 

**Shipments delivered WILL be left near the front door if someone is not home to receive the box. If you wish for the box to be received by a person, we recommend that you ship your order to a business.
