Please check your order at pick-up. We cannot accept claims for shortages or unsatisfactory plants once you leave the pick-up location. However if you are dissatisfied with any item in your order at pick up, you may exchange it (if there are extra plants) or request a refund while at pickup. Kindly remember we are volunteer run and sometimes there are packing errors or mistakes. The District can not offer refunds on plants that do not survive after planting, as planting methods and growing conditions are beyond our control.
The District has ordered a wonderful selection of native tree saplings, shrubs and plants the benefit pollinators. While we make every effort to insure that our orders are delivered complete, we anticipate that some offerings might become unavailable for reasons beyond our control. Occasionally growers make a plant substitution due to unsuccessful growing conditions and try to replace with a similar plant. By purchasing with us you agree to accept any vendor substitutions. If a grower has no substitute, we will make every attempt to refund you as we are refunded by the grower.
Why plant in the fall?
Fall planting of cold-hardy perennials, shrubs and trees, has many advantages:
– Warm fall soil and cool days helps promote root growth with less stress on the plant
– Fall transplants will be larger and display more flowers than the same size plant planted the following spring
– Less plant maintenance is required at the end of the season
Notes on plant sizes:
- Trees seedlings range from 2′-6′ and are potted in 2 gallon containers
- Shrubs are 2′-4′ and are packaged in 1 gallon containers
- Perennials and grasses are in 5″ pots
