Do you guarantee your plants?

We guarantee our plants to be healthy, ready for planting, and correctly named. We are not able to guarantee whether a plant will grow in your garden as there are too many circumstances that are beyond our control.
On rare occasions, a plant shipped dormant may fail to emerge from its dormancy. If this happens, please let us know. If you are concerned about a plant, please contact us within 14 days to let us know. If we can’t help you make it grow, we’ll send you a new plant or issue a refund.

Can I return my plants?

You can return your plants if you no longer want them once they arrive. To receive a refund (minus 15% restocking fee) the plants must be returned in good condition. Return shipping is the customer’s responsibility. 

Is there a fee if I decide to cancel my order?

If you cancel an order and the plants have been pulled and prepared for packing and shipping, there is a 15% restocking fee.

What about sales tax?

We propagate our own plants and are not required to collect North Carolina sales tax.
