Our 2015 plant pricing will not be increasing for spring sales. Shipping has gone up slightly, reflecting the increases the shipping company has imposed on all businesses. I try very hard to find the most economical way to get our plants to you safely and in good condition, and I appreciate the continued support of dedicated gardeners. Choosing certified organic plants to use in your gardens is a choice for health and longevity of our country, and a trust to pass on to our children and grand-children. Thank you all very much!

When do plants ship?
Most blueberry and bramble cultivars are ready to ship in April
unless otherwise noted. Sold out (spring) blueberry and bramble cultivars will be
available again in August or June, respectively, when the next batch of plants are mature.
We will not ship a plant that does not have a strong root system.
Potted plants can be planted anytime of the year (as long as soil is workable), as they have a complete, fully functional root system.

Our plants are shipped in boxes that hold either two or four plants, and the shipping rates for these boxes are listed below. Please try to order in quantities of either 2 or 4 plants. The 4 plant box is the most economical as regards shipping charges.

We will ship you true-to-name plants that were propagated from
virus-free stock, and they will be healthy and hardy, and free of
pests. By following the planting guides and reading the Plant
Care and FAQ
page, you have access to the same methods that make our plants
successful here on the farm. Plant them in locations suitable for them, care
for them as we have laid out, and you have the best chance for
Our plants are very strong, and in 10 years of selling them locally, we have had only a handful of times when a plant needed to be replaced. Damage in shipment is a real possibility, so check your plants when you unpack them. Any damage that occurs in shipping will be covered by the shipping company, as long as they are notified immediately. Save all boxing in case they want to inspect it. Also notify us if you observe shipping damage to the box and plants within.
If for some other reason the plant dies in its first year, and you feel there was no lack of care or attention on your part, and it was not struck down by weather (check your planting zone), wildlife, or careening lawn mowers, we can discuss what can be done.
At most we would refund the base price of the plant, or send you another for the cost of shipping. Shipping charges will only be refunded or replaced if a plant is damaged in shipping, and at no other point will shipping or boxing fees be refunded.
Of course, if you notice your plants seem unhealthy for some reason, please email us with the symptoms, as we may well know how to help you steer your plants back on course to health. We want you to succeed, but all things worthwhile require your attention. Berry plants are fun and rewarding to grow, and although they are low-maintenance, they still need your attention to thrive and survive.

before ordering a plant. This link will take you to the
planting zone map. This map can use your zip code to find
your hardiness zone.
All northern highbush blueberries we sell do well in zones 5-8, with some growing well in zones 3 or 8-9. Our southern highbush blueberries thrive in warmer districts, such as Texas, the Gulf Coast, Florida, and California, generally zones 8-10. Fall Red Raspberries do well from zones 3-11, but Jewell and Royalty are zones 4-8. Our blackberries do fine in zones 5-9. Check the cultivar for specific zone guidelines.
We are unable to ship blueberry plants to the following state: OREGON
If you receive bare-root plants, make sure to open them up, moisten the roots, then keep them wrapped until you can plant them (hopefully within a day). The sooner they get in the ground and watered (which gently settles the soil and media around their roots), the better their chance of surviving and flourishing. Do not worry about frosts (the shoots are still dormant), as long as the roots are in the soil, watered, and mulched, the plant will awaken with your spring.
