Ordering and Shipping Information

Note I will ship Within Canada Only.

The Mail Order can work a couple of ways --

  1. the traditional: order by mail, receive by mail; or
  2. order by mail for pickup at the nursery. This involves prepayment but allows you to get your oar in early, and is also the only way to pre-order plants that I can’t ship due to size or that have to wait for dormancy before bothering their roots (for example, peonies); such plants are noted with their description in the Addendum. And of course shipping is ‘free’ when you pick up your order.

Mail order also allows you to acquire some plants that are not potted but are growing in nursery beds (still, after year upon year of not getting to the top of the list of things to pot!). I can then take the time to dig these plants on order and ship them out or pot them for pickup, without feeling rushed or pressured by people on the grounds (tree roots have been known to get in the way).

To Order by Mail, please print off copies of the Order Form (link below). Note that there are 2 "delivery groupings" and use a separate order form for each:

Enclose a cheque for the total amount of all order forms with your order or separate cheques for each order form, and send them to the address shown on the order form. I am not able to take credit card payment.


All Applicable Taxes are Included in the Prices of Plants and Shipping.

Shipping and Handling Charges: Handling charges included in the list price. Shipping charges are listed on the order form. If actual shipping and packing cost is less, a refund cheque for the extra postage will be sent off to you. It's all a bit of a guess, since weight may vary between plants. Usually the postage comes to more than what I have charged for it, in which case the extra comes out of my pocket.

If you live in one of the more remote communities for delivery to which Canada Post charges an extra arm&leg, I will need to charge extra too.

Of course, plants ordered for pick-up at the nursery have no shipping or handling charges.
