Shipping

Shipping live plants is time-sensitive and therefore costly. Box sizes also contributes to higher costs. For these reasons, we  suggest you review the following information:

Sales and shipping are only available to customers with a Canadian shipping address. ONLY 1 AND 2 GALLON SIZES ARE AVAILABLE FOR SHIPPING. Our 1 gallon size are often comparable to 2 gallons seen at most nurseries, and our 2 gallon size are more of a 2/3 gallon. So, comparable value to other retailers. All container sizes are available for local, by-appointment purchase, or during one of our frequent open houses.

We ship Canada-wide. Shipping time is 1-2 days for BC, the Prairie Provinces, Ontario and Québec. 3-4 days for Atlantic Provinces. FOR PEI AND NL CUSTOMERS PLEASE CONTACT US PRIOR TO ORDERING FOR EXACT SHIPPING RATES.

BEST VALUE IS FOUND WHEN MAXIMIZING THE AMOUNT OF TREES THAT FIT INTO EACH BOX SIZE. Below we have provided estimated shipping rates and approximate quantities of trees that fit into each side box. Occasionally we will need to increase/decrease the website calculated shipping rate due to blind spots in the app that make the calculations. The nature of the product we sell and the various sizes of packages makes this a less than perfect science and also impossible to simply obtain courier quoted rates.

NOTE: The chart shows the cost of packages with like sizes of containers. The cost of combination orders (1 and 2 gallon sizes) will typically cost the same as if the cost of the 1 gallon package and the 2 gallon package were added together, plus approximately a 30% discount. The discount is not a reward, but a tool to adjust the shipping rate correctly to match with our courier rate.

For example: A shipment to Ontario consisting of a package of two, 1 gallon trees ($112) and a package of one, 2 gallon tree ($165) would total $277. $277-30%=$194.  For your convenience, there is also a widget in the shopping cart page where you can instantly get estimated shipping prices. This is found at the bottom right corner of the shopping cart page. 

Finally, weather is something we take into account before shipping. Extra care is taken during the summer months, and occasionally shipping must be delayed as a result.
