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. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at 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.

fantastic plant

Penny from Los Angeles (close to the beach)

I bought this plant for my son to grow on his apartment deck. It lasted for years and had a fantastic aroma! I will be buying this again as a house warming gift for my other two children!

Beautiful plant

A viewer from Chicago

Beautiful lush plant for my sister's December birthday. It was delivered on a very cold day when I happened to be away most of the day, so I was worried to see the flower heads all drooping when I brought it inside. Next day almost all had recovered, and I nipped off the few sad ones. She is delighted.

Lavender Goodwin Creek Grey

LesT from Dayton, OH

I gave my wife one of these lavender plants a year ago for her birthday in November. We enjoyed it indoors through the winter and placed it on the deck for the summer. After repotting it due to added growth, it has now been returned to our entrance hall for the winter months. I have a grow light on a timer for three hours each night. It is now blooming again in November. I have ordered another one for my sister this year.

Great Plant, Don't Overwater

Beverly & Janice from Nevada, USA

We sent this to Phoenix as a June Birthday gift and she loved it! Mom said the pot was very pretty and some of the blooms were already coming out. Since it is so hot there in summer, she plans to keep it indoors in bright light until it's under 110* or so -maybe the 90's! Update: (August) It has done pretty well indoors, probably not as many blooms because of that however. She has to work on not over watering and plans to put it in an outdoor morning sun area now, until weather cools a bit more. Still looks very healthy and lightly fragrant! Would thrive best on covered porch or in a sunroom in this desert climate, she believes.

For master gardeners only

A viewer from Roswell, GA

This is a lovely plant and arrived picture perfect. However, unless you really know what you are doing and have the perfect location for the plant, you may kill it like I did. It lasted less than 5 weeks. It's also extremely easy to overwater as the pot is small. Not sure what i did wrong, maybe a combination of everything, but this is not your easy to care for houseplant. I would not recommend it as a gift for anyone unless they love plants and have a lot of experience with them.

Growing guide

Growing guide

LIGHT: To keep its lovely silver coloring and to produce spikes of dark blue flowers from spring to fall, Lavender 'Goodwin Creek Grey' demands a sunny south window indoors where it will receive 6-8 hours of direct sun. It will also grow well given 14-16 hours of light under a fluorescent light stand.

TEMPERATURE: Daytime temperatures of 60–75°F are fine indoors. In fall and winter, place your Lavender where the nighttime temperature falls to 60°F.

WATERING: Like most silver-leaved plants, Lavender is accustomed to growing in very dry, lean soil. Water only when the top inch of the potting mix is dry to the touch.

FERTILIZER: Fertilize no more frequently than once every 6 weeks during the growing season (April through September) with a balanced fertilizer, such as 20-20-20.

CONTINUING CARE: Lavender 'Goodwin Creek Grey' would be pleased to spend summer outdoors in a sunny location—either in a pot or in the ground. If you live in Zone 7 or warmer in the West, you can grow it outdoors year-round. In colder climates, bring the plant back indoors before frost. Lavenders falter in the torrid summers and mild wet winters that are common in the South. If you summer your plant outdoors, keep it in a pot and bring it back indoors for the winter.

Once the flowers have faded on a flower spike, use scissors to cut off the spike close to where it attaches to the stem. Maintain the overall shape of your Lavender by selective pinching of the new shoots. Pinch each shoot between thumb and forefingers; do not shear the plant as though it were a hedge.
