While our orders are always processed in a timely manner, we can’t control the volume of packages currently being sent by other vendors via UPS or FedEx.

Shipping delays are usually attributed to America’s current increase in shopping remotely for goods. 

If you experience any problems with your order, don’t hesitate to reach out to [email protected]. 
All of our plants are grown on our 400 acre nursery in Southern Alabama. During the peak of the year, we have over 5 million plants on the ground. We do not have time to shift 1 gallon plants into a 2 or 3 gallon pots.

Every plant that is grown starts with a cutting that is started in a 1 inch liner tray. Once mature enough, each plug is put into the pot size that it will eventually be sold in. The ready date is dictated by the calendar and is released to sell once the quality team has approved it.

If you receive a plant that is not fully rooted in, It is likely that the plant wasn’t quite ready to sell and we’ll be happy to provide information on how to establish the plant or provide a replacement.
