Warranty

Trees, Shrubs, Evergreens, and Berry Plants Warranty – Under 50 Plants Per Variety


We guarantee you great plants. Our plants are not pretty when you receive them; they are dormant, not dead but fresh dug (see images below how they look on arrival verses spring). We ship bare-root dormant plants; Plant them within 2-3 days, and water well; in spring, they should green out when the other plants in your yard do and be very nice. If they do not produce leaves two weeks after your other plants have greened out, call us. We will replace them at no cost to you. We do ask for pictures as proof they are dead and if it's in the dormant season also a scratch test.

Scratch test


We ship Bare Root Stock during the "Dormant" Season, when plants do not have leaves, foliage or blooms.

Below (left) is an example of how our bare root crepe myrtles or any trees will look when we ship them. They will be dormant, without foliage. Plant these trees in cool weather and in the spring (right) here's a picture of how these trees will look (when planted and cared for properly) the following spring.

Grass plugs at time of shipment:

We do not ship grasses in colder months due to the tops being gone. Also, we will not ship a grass species without being able to identify it, as these are grown in large fields with other species of carex and other grasses, it is best to wait for warmer months when positive identification is possible.

All our perennial bare root stock is dug fresh to order

We dig our perennials then take them to our shipping warehouse and spray with wilt proof and then dip in terra sorb gel. Both are transparent and you can not see it but when you feel your bulbs, you will know the inside is in superior health being soft, full of moisture, and pliable. We wrap the roots (or place in plastic zip lock bags), for a short shipping period of 3-4 days the plastic seals in the moisture which is further needed for transit and we utilize peat most to aid in moisture retention.
