Our plants are guaranteed to be true to name, alive and healthy upon delivery. Open your plants immediately upon arrival and inspect them for any signs of decay or breakage. We want you to have good healthy plants and will replace any that don't come to you in good shape. If your package is damaged when you receive, it please make a note on the delivery slip and alert the shipper (UPS/USPS). We give no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the growth or productivity. Each shipment is accompanied by certificate of inspection. We ship ferns year round. Bare root plants are shipped September through April, while the plants are still dormant root stock. We ship potted plants year round. Please state when you would like your plants shipped (Sept.-April). Ordering early is the best way to guarantee availability.
