Plant Care - FAQs

How do I care for my plants?

Please visit our type specific plant care pages/links located on the main menu drop down labeled Plant Care or click here to see our Plant Care Page. Once you have located that menu item, find the category that best suits the plant(s) you have purchased. We do our best to give you the essentials like growing zones, special details and care and planting tips. With that being said, it's important for you to do your homework as well! Plant information and recommendations can be finicky in the horticultural world so we recommend contacting your local County Agricultural Extension Office for more information.

Do you ship plants dormant?

Yes! Most leaf-bearing trees and plants enter dormancy or semi-dormancy in the fall through early spring. These plants are completely healthy but may have fewer leaves, discoloration, or lose almost all of their leaves. For what to do after you receive your plant in the mail click here.

Can I plant them while they are dormant?

Planting during dormancy promotes root growth, giving your plant a better start for spring, when new foliage will begin to grow. It’s possible that your shipped trees and plants may still be dormant while your local trees are leafing out. Just give your plants a few weeks for them to acclimate, and soon you will see new fresh foliage!

Why has my plant not broken dormancy?

If you've ordered a plant during winter or early spring, and it fails to emerge from dormancy by May 30th, we will guarantee it. Contact us between May 30th-June 10 so we can review and assist with your order. Keep in mind that we may ask for photos, this helps us assist you in saving your tree or plant.
