We maintain trees, plants and bulbs in coolers at our local warehouse – not to be shipped by other suppliers for us – as some other National Mail Order Nurseries DO. We can extend most plant dormancy, except evergreens, through April and part of May, so you must order as early as possible to insure that you will not be disappointed, when we are sold out of many items. AND - Because when it is too late to plant - we will not send you sprouted out plants,from suppliers from other States, except for evergreen plants and trees. Our next planting season begins in 2017- 2018. WE only ship plants from our single location in GEORGIA. We do not trust other online nursery suppliers from other locations to ship our plants. WE SHIP OUR bulbs, trees, and berry PLANTS directly THROUGH UPS and the US POSTAL SERVICE directly to YOU.
