FALL CITRUS & RARE FRUIT PRE-ORDER
For shipping or pick-up in fall 2023
PLEASE DO NOT MIX PRE-ORDERS: The plants in each pre-order are only available for shipping or pick-up during a specific period each year. Orders for each pre-order must be placed separately from other pre-orders and our Main Catalogue. A $5 administrative fee will be charged per order to separate mixed orders.*
We are excited to offer our largest selection ever of fall Citrus - 89 different varieties - with new cultivars including cold tolerant and hardy varieties! We also offer an amazing selection of other interesting, unusual, and tasty subtropical and tropical fruiting and edible plants plus a few of their hardy friends. In total we have 246 rare, unusual and cool edibles for your growing and eating pleasure.
Available for: Shipping and Pick-Up - Select your preference at check out.
Estimated Date: September for the main selection. A small group will not ship until late October: Asimina (paw paws), Buddha's hand citron, Eriobotrya (loquat), named cultivars of Feijoa (pineapple guava), Morus Nikita White and Persian White, Zanthoxylum (sangho), and Ziziphus (jujubes). These plants will arrive around October 20th and then be prepared for pick-up or shipping. In most cases we only ship orders once they are complete. If it is too cold in your region to ship once the October items arrive, we will hold your order and ship in the spring.
Plant Details: These plants are available in 11cm, 15cm, 1 gallon, 5x12 inch band pots, and 3 gallon pots. In terms of the Citrus, 1 gallon potted plants are usually about 1-2 feet high with some branching beginning, 5x12 inch band pots are usually 2-3 feet high with good branching, and 3 gallon pots are usually about the same height but with more branching and larger root balls for faster establishment and greater overwintering success. The 5x12 inch band pots of avocado and olive are usually 3 feet tall or more! These larger plants will cost more to ship but are certainly worth it.
Shipping Details: We will prioritize shipping to our colder climate gardeners once our shipments arrive. Should it be too cold to ship to you due to bad weather in October, we will hold your plants and ship in the spring. Citrus and other plants in this pre-order can be quite tall and require large boxes. For this reason, it is possible that for some orders, especially large orders that require large boxes or multiple boxes, your shipping costs may be higher than what you are quoted by our system when you place your order. In this case, you will be asked to pay an additional shipping amount. We do not make money on shipping but we must charge appropriately to cover our costs. Thanks for your understanding.
Cancellations and Changes:Once plants are ordered, they are reserved for you and can’t be sold to anyone else. We view your order as a commitment you have made with us in good faith. For this reason, cancellations for full refund will only be accepted until September 1st, 2023. After that date you can choose to cancel for a refund minus a 25% restocking fee or cancel for a full store credit. Additions can be made at any time. If you are a pick-up customer simply place another order and put a note about your previous order(s) in the Order Comments box at the end of checking out. If you are a mail order customer, email us with your additions. We'll add them, adjust your shipping charges, and contact you for payment.
*Mixed orders will be charged an administrative fee of $5 per pre-order/main catalogue order to cover our costs of separating and organizing your orders. As a rule, all pre-orders ship separately due to timing and different packing requirements. In some cases we may be able to combine some pre-orders to ship together if you send us a detailed email listing all of your orders. While we will do our best, we cannot guarantee that any pre-orders will ship together.
