WEATHER PERMITTING - Working with Mother Nature

In our business, we work closely with Mother Nature. In the colder months when we stipulate that an item is shipped “weather permitting”, that means temperatures outside our shipping facility in northwestern Connecticut and along the shipping route must be warm enough for tender plants to survive in unheated delivery trucks. Our practice of waiting for windows of milder weather may result in the occasional delay, but our customers tend to appreciate the care we take to make certain their plants arrive in the very best possible condition. Questions? Don’t hesitate to call our customer service staff at 1-800-411-6159.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

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 these perennials and annuals in 1 pint 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. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Open the shipping box as soon as possible upon arrival. Inspect your plants and check them for moisture. (The easiest way is to feel the potting medium with your finger.) If it is dry, bring your plants to the kitchen sink. Slowly add water to each pot. If the water immediately drains through, your plants are very dry. Continue to add water at intervals until the potting medium takes up the moisture. (Each pot will begin to feel slightly heavier in your hand.) When your plants have been hydrated, set the pots inside the cachepot, pot, or vessel that is designed to hold your herbs.

LIGHT & TEMPERATURE: Herbs are generally sun-loving plants and need 6–8 hours of direct sun, regardless of season. During the short days of winter, they must be placed in a sunny south window. Herbs prefer cool temperatures, especially at night. They are happiest where the nighttime temperature drops to 60°F, or even colder.

WATERING: Most herbs prefer to be kept on the dry side. Water only when the top 1⁄2” of potting mix is dry to the touch. Note: The plants will dry out at different rates. We strongly urge you to check each plant daily for dryness and to water each individually in a sink. Do not allow excess water to accumulate in the plant’s cachepot or saucer. If the bottoms of the pots are in contact with water, the plants will soon rot.

HUMIDITY: Although they prefer to have their potting mix on the dry side in winter, these herbs appreciate extra humidity in the air. Avoid placing herbs near sources of heat.

FERTILIZING: Do not fertilize in winter. From early April until mid-September, fertilize every 6 weeks with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer (such as our 18-18-18 Grow Fertilizer, item #51011) mixed at 1⁄2 strength.

REPOTTING: After several months, these herbs may have outgrown their pots. Either repot them into a container that is about 2” wider than the current pot, or plant them out in the garden. If you wish to plant them in the garden, see “Growing Herbs Outdoors” below.

SUMMER CARE: Potted herbs will be healthier if they are moved outdoors for the summer. When temperatures warm in spring, acclimate them slowly to direct sun (start them in the shade and increase their exposure to full sun over the course of about 3 days). During summer, you’ll need to water potted plants much more fre- quently than you do in winter. Fertilize as directed (see above). Before the first fall frost, bring your plants inside.

GROWING HERBS OUTDOORS: Where they are not hardy or where growing conditions do not suit them (such as the summer heat and winter wet of the South), they are best kept in pots and overwintered indoors. In the garden, provide at least 6 hours of direct sun per day and very well-drained soil. Acclimate your plants to full sun as described under “Summer Care” above, and wait to plant until all risk of frost has passed.
