The Small Print

We are a business to business nursery, and are not set up to answer questions regarding typical garden or purely aesthetic applications for our plants. However if you are a retail customer who can tell us the name of the species you want in botanical Latin, we are happy to be your provider!

Availability must be confirmed before order is placed, as it changes daily and some species are forever in short supply.

Once you place an order you are obligated to pay for the plants, even if you subsequently find that you don’t need them. You are also obligated to pick up the plants or accept delivery within 30 days of the agreed-upon date.

When we start to prepare your order for shipping or pickup, we cannot reverse the process. Therefore if you change your mind in the 48 hours before your plants are scheduled to leave our facility you must still accept and pay for the plants.

Occasionally we have a crop failure. If this occurs we will work with you to find acceptable substitutes for the plants we cannot provide, provide the plants in alternate sizes, and/or find alternate providers for the plants. However we cannot be held responsible for any damages caused by our inability to provide the plants.

Listed prices may change without notice.

Payment in full is due upon receipt of the plants, although established, reliable customers who have completed credit applications may be granted 30 day payment terms.

Note: As of October 2018, the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry has enacted a quarantine for Guava Root Knot Nematode (Meloidogyne enterolobii) which affects all plant shipments sent from North Carolina. Although we have no reason to suspect that our plants have this pest, we will fully comply with the quarantine. This makes shipping to Louisiana cumbersome; please allow at least 3 weeks for plants to be tested before shipping.
