Our Terms and Conditions

We ONLY guarantee delivery of our plant material DURING SHIPMENT when sent by PRIORITY MAIL and it is 99.9% reliable.


Plant material shipped by Ground Advantage may be cheaper, but we simply can NOT guarantee your plants will arrive safely and stress-free.

Ground Advantage is only 75% reliable - so far - the only "advantage" is the price when shipping LIVE PLANT MATERIAL.

In some areas, Ground Advantage can take up to 12 days to get your order - which puts a LOT of stress on the plants and is not recommended, nor guaranteed.

Our trees, shrubs and perennial plants can last for years with the proper care. Please invest in the guaranteed Priority Mail shipping method to reduce the stress on your new plants. 

But it is your choice during checkout. 


All items leave our location in excellent condition. While we cannot accept responsibility of the treatment of any of our items during shipment we are always concerned if the item arrives in less than perfect condition

Please email or text us a photo of the damaged item within 24 hours to start the process. We will be glad to work with you within reason. 


- Please send a photo for our files. We will refund it.


- Returns for NON-PLANT MATERIALS are accepted for refund or store credit by notifying us within 24 hours of receiving shipment. You have 7 to 14 days to return the item. Shipping costs for returned items are the buyer's responsibility.

- Exchanges are accepted too. Shipping and handling charges for exchanged items are the buyer's responsibility. We will wait for the item to be returned before sending the exchanged item.


If you are unsure about your choice of plants or miniatures,
let us know! We would be glad to help you
make sure you get what is best for your area and for your miniature garden. 



We cannot warranty any plant material after your order is received.

We ONLY guarantee the delivery of our plant material DURING SHIPMENT by PRIORITY MAIL. THIS IS YOUR CHOICE DURING CHECKOUT. Plant material shipping by Ground Advantage may be cheaper, but we simply can NOT guarantee it. 

After receiving your plant order, please understand that we have no control of the care and maintenance of the plants once they arrive safely at your end.

We do our best to educate and advise, but we cannot and do not guarantee any plant material after they are received - please understand that there are way too many variables that are out of our control. We can not grow the plants for you, keep them in the right spot nor can we water them for you either.

Note that even the most educated gardeners kill plants from time to time.

- Thank you.
