Resources & Guides
We are not able to arrange for order pick-up at the Nursery. Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions - all orders are shipped.
Here in central Wisconsin, our plants are ready to ship in April. In order to guarantee plant survival during shipment, we ship plants during two “shipping-periods” a year, when the weather is “not to hot, not too cold.”
SPRING PLANT SHIPPING - In the spring, we ship plants from mid-April until early June.
FALL PLANT SHIPPING - In the fall, we ship plants from mid-September until early October.
SEED SHIPPING - We ship Seeds year-round. Seed orders are always shipped within a week of your order being placed. An exception to this is the last two weeks of December when we are closed for the holidays.
PLANTS - In general, the ordering periods for plants are: the beginning of January, thru the end of May; and the end of July through the end of September. If you want to receive plants for spring planting, it is most advantageous to order in late winter or early spring (January – March). That’s when our plant inventory is highest. You will have the best chance of getting the plants you want, and you will also have the best choice of shipping dates. If you want to receive plants for fall planting, ordering in August will offer the best choice of plants and the best choice of shipping dates on our fall shipping schedule.
SEEDS - Order seeds at any time. We ship seeds year-round, within a week of your order being placed. If you plan to sow in the spring, you may order in the spring. If you plan to sow in the fall, you may order in the fall.
