We will continue to ship based on availability of the plants through much of October. If the items you have ordered are no longer available for 2019, we will send a postcard letting you know that the order has been placed on file for spring 2020 shipment. Orders of nursery stock and plants placed after October 30, 2019 will automatically not be shipped until spring 2020. Hard goods will continue to ship throughout the year.

Keep in mind that many of our plants and trees are shipped in a dormant condition. Soak overnight before planting. In general, these items can be planted anytime your ground is not frozen. An early snow or frost will not harm a nursery stock item that is already dormant. On the other hand, these items can also be planted during warm weather-simply be sure to water well. Potted perennials can be planted outside anytime after your last front until your ground has frozen solid for the winter.
