We grow, sell, and ship, from some of the finest Tropical Ferns in the industry all in the beautiful USA. We ship quickly through USPS Priority Mail. These Ferns are Tropical and will FREEZE outside in the winter if your Zone gets below freezing.

Plants are shipped out on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and sometimes on Saturdays....Most plants will be sent bare root wrapped in wet sphagnum moss and a plastic bag wrapped in tape for security, and sent via USPS Priority Mail. When plants arrive be sure and soak in water overnight and then plant. I take great care in wrapping plants to assure they arrive safely, but sometimes the Post Office gets careless and damages the package(See “Damage” under shipping) I only ship plants to lower 48 states, Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Protectorates, and APO/FPO address no international shipping at this time, but am working on same on a country by country basis, so email me with any requests! If there are any certificates or special shipping costs above and beyond what normally occurs in my regular shipping to the lower 48 states...buyer is responsible to tell me and pay any additional costs incurred. Please immediately email or call me upon arrival of shipment, for any problems that you think might have occurred. John Talbott
