Shipping Information

Miniature Gardening plants are shipped from mid March through end of November to the entire United States, but not out of the country for the time being. A selection of plants is also shipped during the winter months if necessary together with a heat pack and special insulation to ensure a safe transit. Our other shop items are shipped 12 months a year internationally.

There will be 5.5% sales tax added only to those orders shipping to Wisconsin (WI) in the US. For international orders you are responsible for any country-specific import duties or taxes that may apply.

Standard orders will be shipped via US Postal Service (USPS) or Federal Express (FedEx). Plants are shipped expedited to be in transit for max. 3 business days to avoid loss of quality.

Normally you can expect your order to be processed in one or at most two business days. An estimate for the time in transit is provided when selecting the shipping method.

Once your order has been placed, you will receive an invoice receipt by e-mail. When your order has been shipped, you will receive another e-mail with a link to tracking information. If in spite of our inventory management we run out of stock for one of your items, we will refund you for it.

Your shipping rates are determined according to the type of service (Standard, Expedited or Two-Day) and weight of the parcel. We do not charge for packaging or handling. On the shopping cart page an estimate can be requested upon providing destination country and zip code. There is free standard shipping within the US for orders of at least $150.00. And we offer a 50% discount on standard international shipping for orders of at least $150.00.
