No shipping in August. We will suspend the shipping of plants from August 11th thru September 5th (plants can still be ordered, but shipping will be held-over until after September the 8th). It is normally too hot to ship plants at this time and often too hot to do much of anything. For those in the States requiring Phytosanitary Certificates and who want delivery of their plants before we suspend shipping August 11th, please place your order by July 31st so we have time to get the required Phytosanitary Certificate and still be able to get the order out in a timely manner.
