Thank you for choosing Bob Wells Nursery. We typically ship merchandise either the same or the next business day on which the order was received. WE DO NOT HOLD RETAIL ORDERS. All packages are sent via FedEx Ground in boxes that range in size from two to seven feet long.
Shipping to the following states may be delayed due to regulations that require packages to be inspected before shipping as required by the USDA, Texas Department of Agriculture and your local state regulatory agency:
Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington
In the case your package requires inspection, these packages will be shipped on a weekly schedule.
State of California – We are prohibited from shipping persimmon trees to the state of California.
States of New York and Washington – We are prohibited from shipping grapevine plants to either of these states.
State of Oregon – Containers larger than one gallon are prohibited from shipping to the state of Oregon. If you order a tree that is only available in a larger container, we will be required to send it as bare root and the leaves stripped from the tree.
Citrus – Federal and state laws prohibit us from shipping citrus outside the state of Texas. No exceptions allowed.
We are unable to ship any packages outside the contiguous 48 states. This means we are not able to ship to these locations: Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and other US territories.
In most instances, the shipping & handling cost for every two trees in 5-gallon containers is $39.95**
Most berries, vines, grapes and small plants will cost $22.95 for shipping.
Generally, we can fit up to six of the 1-gallon plants into a single shipping box.
(**Some exceptions do apply to prevent damage in transit, particularly with citrus trees, avocado trees, multi-grafted fruit trees, tropical tree varieties and some flowering shade trees.)
All orders are confirmed with a FedEx Tracking Number.
