Yes. Behind the pages of our catalog and Web site stand several dozen careful and competent professionals who are determined to make your gifts and plant and product orders successful in every respect. We guarantee your complete satisfaction or your money back.
We guarantee to provide healthy plants, true to variety and in prime condition for growing, and to deliver them to your home at the proper time for planting. Each shipment will be accompanied by clear and practical instructions for the planting and care of every plant included. While we cannot accept responsibility for losses caused by extreme weather, neglect, or inappropriate climate zone (clearly indicated for every variety), we DO guarantee that our plants will perform and thrive for at least one year when properly cared for or your money will be cheerfully refunded. We will act responsibly and trust you to do the same.
Please note: The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship plants in 3in (25.9 cu in), 1 pint (28.86 cu in), 1 qt (0.94 liter), or 1 gal (3.78 liter) pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience.
When a bulb or plant you have ordered is not available, we reserve the right to provide another of similar attributes and pricing that will produce the same garden effect.
