Shipping

How long will it take for my plant to ship?

  • Customers are responsible for selecting the shipping option that is satisfactory to them. We highly recommend using the fastest form of delivery through UPS. If a shipment is taking too long we are limited in our ability to intervene as all shipping is through third party services (Canada Post or UPS).ÔĽŅ
  • We send shipments out every Monday and Tuesday to ensure that they have the maximum amount of business days in the mail. Orders for the week must be placed by 5pm Sunday.
  • In case of a holiday on Monday, your order will go out on Tuesday that week.
  • We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages.
  • We are not¬†responsible for packages returned to us by the carrier due to incorrect or incomplete address or delivery information.
  • We do not refund for shipping charges if the package has been sent out.

Winter Shipping

  • All winter orders are shipped with a warmer and insulation until weather conditions are stable and trending above 10C in the delivery area.

  • We check the weather to consider plant safety before sending orders. At times, we use discretion to hold shipments until weather conditions are within a reasonable temperature to ensure your plant's arrive healthy. Some holding delays include Holiday seasons, Extreme cold warnings, Blizzards, etc.

  • We recommend shipping overnight for winter orders, we will not send orders that will take longer than 3 days until spring.¬†
  • We use 72 hour shipping warmers to provide a slow and steady heat over a longer period in comparison to shorter duration heat packs. This has a dual purpose!¬†
    1. It protects the plant from overheating which could damage the roots and or the foliage.
    2. To protect the plant from cold for a longer period in case of unforeseen shipping delays.

Shipping Warmers

  • Pros to shipping warmers: They extend our shipping season! The contents are biodegradable. Keeps your plants in an ideal climate when its cold outside.
  • Cons to shipping warmers: They only work in temperatures hoovering around 0C if they are exposed to air colder than that, they are likely to fail. Can burn roots and foliage. Add extra weight to your shipment (1lb).

What shipping providers do you use?

  • We offer two different providers: UPS and Canada Post.
