Our Plants FAQs

Do you propagate your own material?
We propagate 80-90% of our material, including Boxwood, Ilex, and Viburnum.
We need landscape ready material, can we make sure tagged plants are full and healthy looking?
All our material is landscape ready. We will not send out material that does not meet our level of quality.
I am looking for a plant with specific traits, how can you help?
Visit the Category Page to peruse lists of plant material by category. Scroll through our Plant Catalog to read short descriptions and basic facts about our plant material. Or use our Comparison function to compare up to 5 plants side by side at one time. If you can not find what you are looking for on our website feel free to call our office, we would be glad to assist you.
Can I tour the nursery and tag my own material?
We welcome anyone that would like a tour of our farm. Due to the boxwood blight compliance agreement, guests must remain in our vehicle at all times. If you find plants to purchase, we will tag the plants for you. Call to schedule a day to visit.
How can I place an order?
The quickest easiest way to order plants is by filling out your order form on our website. Add material to your order either by scrolling down our availability page or during perusing our Plant Catalog. When you are finished adding to your order, click on 'cart' at the top right of the page to review and submit your order. Other options include emailing, faxing, or calling in your order.

Is there a minimum order?
There is a minimum of 3 of the same plant for all material except Buxus, in which there is a $1000 minimum of the same plant. Our reasoning for this minimum is that we usually incur a loss if there are 3 different plants sold. Here is why. There are eight separate administrative tasks involved in taking and processing an order. There are 6 tasks for men and equipment costing at least $160; this does not include the administrative functions. While all these tasks are going on we are not doing something important for the production of plants. Our goal is not to make anyone feel unhappy or dissatisfied with us; the goal is the same as with your business, to make a profit or at least not lose money on a sale.
When do you take orders? How about Spring orders?
We take orders year-round. Spring orders should be submitted by November 1st.
Do you summer dig?
Yes. Due to the extra production costs to safely summer dig, we charge an extra fee on summer orders. The cost varies based on weather conditions, plant type, and the size of the order. It typically costs between 3-6% of the invoice amount.
How much will shipping cost?
Freight rates vary with season (supply and demand of available equipment) and fuel costs. We will supply you with the freight cost at the time of ordering.
How far do you ship?
We will ship anywhere.
How soon can I get my plants delivered?
We strive to offer a fast turn around rate. Spring is our busiest shipping schedule, though we aim to get orders out the door in one week's time. Small orders may need to be consolidated with others and may extend the lead time.
