Most of our plants are now grown in 7cm x 9cm pots to better handle shipping and transplanting. To prevent the soil from spilling in some pots, we lay slightly moistened spagnum moss on top. Packing peanuts are used to hold everythign in place - we wish we didn't have to but it's the only product that works (biodegradable ones will turn gooey, and you don't want that on your Artemisa assonana v pedemontana)



See our FAQ, "When will my order be shipped?".

*** We connect to the USPS and Canada Post shipping rate servers on-line to use live, current shipping rates. ***

Check your shipment when it arrives and put the pots in a cool, shaded, protected area. Transplant to the garden with a minimum of root disturbance, water in well and provide some shading if the weather is warm. Minimum plant order is $60 plus shipping and taxes. We ship mostly in the spring (April/May) and fall (September). There is a $10 handling charge per order to cover the direct costs (boxes, packing material, tray, and labour). NOTE: In case of shipping damage, please contact us immediately.



Prices for Canadian orders are in Canadian funds, payable by cheque, money order, VISA or MasterCard. The minimum SUB-TOTAL order is $60. Shipping charges are calculated by Canada Post.

Claims of damage to your plants must be submitted within 7 days of receipt for replacement or refund to be issued - limited to the value of the plants claimed. We do not offer warranty on plants when subsequent planting and care produces unsatisfactory results. 



We no longer offer a printable order form. We have provided the ability for you to assemble your order on our web site and complete checkout WITHOUT PROVIDING CREDIT CARD INFORMATION. To do this, choose the Payment Method "Phone/Fax/Mail/Money order/Cheque". Then you can pay off-line in the method you prefer. The main benefit of completing your order online is the correct calculation of order total, shipping and taxes.

We accept payment by cheque, money order, VISA, MasterCard or American Express.

Orders are not processed until payment is received.
