Orders are filled and shipped in the order in which they are received.

Plants are shipped on Mondays (or Tuesdays when Monday is a holiday) by U.S. Priority Mail. If you will include the date you prefer shipment, we will try to comply.

You will be notified if there is to be a delay. Orders are filled in the order in which they are received even when the shipping date is to be delayed.

Young bare-root plants are normally shipped June through September.  Since our spring weather is so variable, we cannot promise shipment before June. Some years we are able to ship earlier.


Gift Shipments

Gift Orders can be shipped direct to the recipient of your choice as per your instructions. Gift Certificates are available.



All plants are shipped in top condition.  Every care is taken to prevent breakage in shipment.  Even so, semps will sometimes drop their chicks.  (We sometimes toss in bonus chicks as well.)

Sempervivums and jovibarbas: Unless very immature, chicks will root simply when placed on soil or sand.  Just scatter jovibarba rollers as this is their method of reproducing.  They will right themselves and take root.

Sedums: Breakage of some crisp sedums can occur.  Leave sedum pieces for up to a week in cool, dry place to heal over.  Then plant them in sand, and keep them moist till rooted.  Do not over water.
