When your plant order will ship

Due to the fact we can only safely ship plants on the first 3 days of the week,  we are limited to  the "speed" of shipping for each order! Please allow 2-3 weeks for your shipment to arrive! We treat each order with the utmost importance, and ship them as "Quickly" as possible.

During the months of December through May, we hold plant orders until they are zone-ready to ensure the plants will live. If your zone is not ready, and you want your order before zone-ready*, then you may email us at  and request that you would like your order shipped now. Zone shipping dates are approximate. We watch temperatures closely to ensure that the plants arrive at a time when they can safely be placed in your pond. If your order contains tropical plants your order may be held for an additional 2-3 weeks depending on your zone and its temperatures.

Check  the USDA Zone map  above to determine your zone .

  • Zones 9 and Zone 10 can be shipped year round. During the winter, we do hold orders if they would freeze in transit.
  • Zone 8 ships around mid March
  • Zone 7 ships around the first of April
  • Zone 6 ships around mid April
  • Zone 5 ships around the first of May
  • Zone 3 and Zone 4 will ship around mid May

 **Plant Orders are usually shipped via FedEx Home or Ground Delivery. These orders are ONLY shipped on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday, to Prevent your plants from "sitting" over the weekend should a shipping delay occur.
