ADDING TO YOUR ORDER

*You can add to your order up to 2 weeks before your estimated shipping time.* Any orders placed within 2 weeks of your shipment may be added to your first order, but very likely will not.

There are two scenarios for adding to your order:

  1. Adding 4 or more plants: Please create a NEW second order with NEW plants. Ensure that the cart is empty of your first order before you make a second order. Please check the box at checkout that states: “This is my second order AND I would like it shipped with my first order.” We will refund the shipping cost difference at the time of shipping.
  2. Adding less than 4 plants: Please follow the instructions from #1. You will need to use the coupon code under4 at checkout to bypass the 4 plant minimum order.

*If you are placing an additional order less than 2 weeks before your shipping date, you will need to create an order of 4 plants minimum. This new order will be shipped according to the current shipping time.

SHIPPING OVERVIEW

  • We only ship within Ontario. This reflects our business model of providing native plants grown from local seed to also be planted locally within the province.
  • We encourage ordering in multiples of 8 to save on shipping costs as our boxes hold 8 plants per layer.
  • Our largest box holds 48 plants. If you are planning to order over 48 plants, please get in touch with us at [email protected].
  • Want to add to your order after it has been placed? Please make a second order and then click ‘This is my second order’ at checkout. We will send a refund for the shipping cost savings when your orders ship. You can also send us an email to alert us to the double order.
