During the fall and winter months we do have some greenhouses that we keep cold and some that are heated. If you want your order to be vernalized we suggest that you request vernalization. This will ensure your order will be dormant when you receive it. (The hibiscus policy will apply.)
There is a $6.50 per box charge. Please call the office so we can provide you with an approximate cost. We use UPS for shipments. Orders that are 32 trays and over will ship with a truck carrier. At the present time we do not use LTL for orders shipping to the west coast. These orders ship via UPS 3 Day Select.
We generally ship orders on a wooden rack when they are 32 trays and over; however, we do a price comparison to see if it will save our customers money to ship UPS or LTL. We also check the weather conditions before deciding to ship LTL.
We deliver to our customers within a 100 mile radius and charge $2.75 per flat for delivery. The minimum trays for delivery are 50 flats. Of course we try to plan accordingly and schedule other deliveries in your area. Sometimes it might be more cost effective for us to ship LTL.
We have production meetings every 2 weeks; this allows us to look at future orders and plan ahead. If we anticipate a problem we will notify your broker or you, yourself, if you are one of our direct customers.
Please provide us with your company information; also, you will have to complete a credit application to have terms with us. If you do not want to complete a credit application that is ok, but we will need your credit card information to pay your invoice.
