Shipping and Company Policies

Payment Processing and Security

We use Square payments as our payment processor because of their security protections for both the purchaser and seller.  In addition to the security features they employ, they also accept all major credit cards.


If you are unfamiliar with Square you will find it quick and easy If you don't have a major credit card we also accept certified cheque or money order. Your order will be delayed as we will have to wait till we receive payment but will be glad to hold the plants that you have ordered. If you would like to pay with alternative methods contact us to make arrangements at:

Sorry we are too busy to supply individual pictures of our stock.  The pictures on the web site are an approximation of what you can expect when ordering.  When you order you will receive a plant that is similar to what you see but will have variations that are with in the species.  For variegated plants this means that the variegation will differ but be of similar level.  The only time we will provide individual picture is if the plant is a specimen or one of a kind and this is indicted on the web site.
