Can I bring my client?

Yes. You are welcome to bring your client as long as you accompany them. Please do not send them to us unattended or to purchase plants on your account. Please remember that you can always direct them to our seasonal retail nursery if you cannot accompany them or if they need some plants.

Can I pull my own plants?

Yes. You may pull you own plants in any quantity that you like. Please check in with the office before you begin your shopping and remember that these are growing grounds and plants/batches are in various stages of growth. You can take your plants with you or have us deliver them if it meets the minimum order amount.

What is the minimum order amount?

The four-inch pots are sold in multiples of eight (unless you pull your own material). Gallons can be ordered in any quantity. The minimum order amount for delivery is $150.00. If you pull your own order, there is no minimum amount.

I was just at the nursery and I saw a plant that wasn’t on the availability list, can I still buy it?

Yes. Our availability list is geared for retail nurseries to use and lists items that are ready for that current week. The plants that go on the availability list must meet certain requirements; they must be of retail quality and be available in sufficient quantities to last for a week on the availability list. If the plant is not full in its container, it will not show on our list. If the plant is a little large or becoming overgrown, this is considered “landscape quality” and it will not show on the list. If there is only a limited amount available, it will not show on the list. When using our list, always inquire about items that are not listed because of this.

I don’t see the plant that I am looking for on your availability list.

We always suggest that you inquire about plants that you do not see on our availability list. The plants that go on that list must meet certain requirements and if they don’t, they don’t show on that list. When inquiring about items not listed, we can let you know if it is an item that we grow and approximate availability. Remember, it doesn’t hurt to ask and we don’t mind checking.

I don’t see the plant that I am looking for in your catalog.

We always suggest that you inquire about plants that you do not see in our catalog. There are a few plants that we do in limited supply and we do not list these in our catalog. There are also new items that we get in during the year and these do not show in our catalog because they come in after it is updated. When inquiring for items not listed, we can let you know if it is an item that we grow and approximate availability. Remember, it doesn’t hurt to ask and we don’t mind checking.

I wanted five 1-gallons and you only have 4”, so how many pots should I get?

We get this question A LOT and the answer is five. If you want 1-gallons and you are substituting 4” pots, use the same number of plants. A 1-gallon and a 4” pot of the same plant will grow to the same size when in the garden. It is not a dwarf or smaller because it is in a 4” pot. So, prevent over planting and overcrowding and use the same number of plants. Generally with many of the perennials, you cannot tell what was a 1-gallon plant and what was a 4” plant after six weeks of growth in the garden. 4" plants are easier to plant (smaller holes to dig!) and they save you money because they are cheaper. Get more jobs done in one year; the quicker you complete a job, the quicker you can begin another one.

*Remember, wider spacing means that the individual plants will be of better shape because then they develop unhampered and they are easier to prune.
