Shipping Schedule

Scionwood and early rootstock orders orders ship around March 11, depending on weather and conditions. Only scionwood twigs and grafting rootstocks can be shipped during this period; scionwood is only shipped mid-March.

For all other items: Regular orders placed after March 4 will ship around late April through early-to-mid May, in the order in which they were received. Sorry, we cannot expedite these orders, add to existing orders or combine orders. Regular orders placed on or before March 4 will ship around March 26 through late April, starting with warmer areas and finishing in colder areas. Surplus Sale orders ship in the order in which we receive them after we have completed all regular order shipments. We will begin shipping Surplus Sale orders in early May and we will notify you of your estimated ship date as we approach that time. Sorry, we cannot expedite Surplus Sale orders or combine them with existing orders.

In mid-March, we post our approximate shipping schedule so you can get an idea of when your order will ship.

If you’re in New England, your order may take 1-2 business days to arrive once shipped. Outside New England, it may take several business days. You will receive an automatic email confirmation with tracking information when your order ships.

Shipping Charges

We ship via FedEx or Priority Mail, our choice unless you specify. We strive to make our shipping charges fair, and it is a challenge. Since most packages we send with trees and shrubs are subject to expensive charges for oversized boxes and heavy weights, we have a category of small and light items that cost less to ship.

Small & Light shipping applies only to orders in the Lower 48 that exclusively contain item numbers beginning with L: perennials, bulbs, strawberries, rhubarb, hops, asparagus, scionwood and more. If you order other items in addition to these, you must pay the higher shipping rate.
