Boxing

We have four box sizes which hold 4, 6, 8 or 10 trays. We believe the 8 tray boxes are generally handled better by the carriers and therefore use it whenever possible. The 4 tray boxes are 24"x20"x12". The 8 and 10 tray boxes are 24"x20"x18". Weight 40 pounds (approximately 5 pounds per tray.)

Boxing Surcharge

$1.50 will be added to the price of each tray as a boxing charge. Unrooted cutting orders do not have a boxing charge.

Minimums

Our minimum order policy is as follows: 4 rooted trays, or 600 unrooted cuttings. Any order below minimums is subject to a low-order fee on a graduated scale.
Minimums per variety is one tray for rooted cuttings and 100 plants for unrooted cuttings.

Tray Sizes

Most rooted cuttings are grown in plug trays of 105 cells, billed as 100; some varieties are grown in trays of 50 cells and billed as 50. We have a four tray minimum order policy.

Split Trays

In most cases we can offer split trays. Varieties that are grown in 105 cell count trays can be ordered in units of 35. Varieties that are grown in 50 cell count trays can be ordered in units of 25. The cost of the split tray is 15 cent higher per plant than list price. We can not mix 105 celles and 50 cells in the same tray. So if you order 35 of one variety you would need to finish out that tray with two more selections of plants.

Federal Express

This is our main form of delivery. Unrooted cuttings will ship priority overnight. Rooted plugs normally ship with second day service. If the weather is too cold we will use winter packing. Typically FedEx is the cheapest form of delivery for orders less than 30 trays. Each order is unique and we would be happy to quote your specific order if you so desire.

Truck Delivery

We offer grower truck-to-door delivery. Deliveries routes are typically created the week prior to shipment. We may move an order from FedEx to Grower Truck if we can match or beat the price of FedEx. Deliveries will be quoted by our office upon request.

We ship by air from Charlotte, NC. FedEx is preferred for single package shipments in mild weather. If you would like to ship Air freight.
