States of New York and Washington  We are prohibited from shipping grapevine plants to either of these states.

State of Oregon – Due to agricultural laws, plants and trees in containers larger than 1 gallon are prohibited from shipping to the state of Oregon. If you order a tree, we will be required to send it bare root and the leaves stripped from the tree. We do not ship tropical plants to this state.

Some exceptions do apply, particularly with citrus, avocado, tropical, multi-grafted fruit trees, flowering and shade trees. We will only pack one of these listed trees per box to avoid damage in transit. PLEASE NOTE: If your tree is too tall to fit inside a 5-foot box, the top will be pruned. Most shade and flowering trees will be placed in 7-foot boxes. The tops will also be pruned if necessary.

Most berries and small 1-gallon plants will cost $22.95 for shipping. The fee remains the same for up to 4 plants.
