We typically ship plant orders via USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail on Mondays and Tuesdays so **hopefully** your plants arrive before the weekend. We ship all throughout the United States, including, California, Hawaii and Arizona.
Shipping begins in April based on the average last frost date for your location and also by plant readiness. We hand pick every plant that is ordered and check each one to make sure it is healthy and ready to ship. We ensure all plants are well roo ted so they withstand the often rough journey to its final desitination.
We wish we could, but we cannot control what happens to plants or packages once they leave our hands!
When the heat reaches its peak, typically in later June and into July, shipping dates slow down. We want your plants to arrive in the best condition as possible and extreme temperatures paired with being cooped up in a dark box with no light make for some not so happy plants.
If you wish to have your plants shipped at a specific time, please let us know in the comments of your order and we will do our best to accomodate.
Most plants are potted and shipped in 2 3/8" x 3 3/4" band pots.
There is a 6 plant minimum when ordering individual potted plants. (You do not need to order 6 of one plant, mixing plants and varieties is okay.)
If you purchase from Goodwin Creek Gardens (and we are so grateful if you do) it validates the following shipping agreements:
All orders are charged by the credit card processor when the order is submitted, not when they ship. In this way we, Goodwin Creek Gardens, do not have access to your credit card number. We are only allowed to credit your account with a refund, and this is done without your credit card number. This is the safest way, we feel, to do business on the internet.
