We take the time to ensure all of our plants are packaged with love and care. We hand-pack each of our plants in their pot dry to ensure they remain happy and healthy during the shipping process. The dry soil helps us keep our plants from rotting or freezing on their journey to your door. This may cause some soil to move around during shipping, you can simply brush it off your plants and add it back to your pot. We include a short plant care guide with your orders so that your new plants are happily introduced to their new home!
For California residents, please read about Prop 65 here. California law requires nurseries to display this label to customers.
