Cold/Hot Weather Shipping

We are located in the Pacific Northwest where our weather is typically mild year round, therefore, shipping from our location is rarely an issue. However, temperatures in your area can present issues under certain circumstances. 

☀️ Warm Weather Shipping Info ☀️ 

Our plants are predominantly tropical/subtropical. This means that warm weather is not typically an issue, however, particularly hot weather can be problematic.

If high temps in your area are exceeding 85F consider waiting to place your order until there is a cooler stretch of weather. With that said the main thing you will want to do when ordering during warm weather is to follow the tracking of your order closely. Plan to have someone available to bring your package inside as soon as it is delivered. This is good practice regardless of temperatures but becomes extra important during warm weather periods. The biggest risk for plants during warm weather is if your package sits in a hot mailbox or on your porch. Bringing the package indoors promptly mitigates this risk.

We carefully pack our orders and also ship all orders via USPS Priority Mail with tracking included. All orders are covered by our 100% live arrival guarantee. Even when it’s hot or cold!
