Free Shipping Classic Caladiums Orders

     

Hardiness zones for growing caladiums


   We start shipping in March, we time shipments to various zones so they may not be subject to freezing temperatures during shipping. Bulbs shipped to Northern Florida in March should arrive in great shape, if we shipped to Minnesota at the same time, the bulbs may be subject to freezing. Generally, we forego shipping on Thursdays and Fridays in order to keep the bulbs from being held over the week-end and possibly exposed to low temps.
Prolonged exposure to temps even in the 40's and 50's can adversely affect caladium bulbs.

ZIP CODE:

  We go by shipping zones, we set up pre-planned dates for safe shipping to your zone, (below) then we consult the weather and see if the temps in your zone are warm enough. If we think the temp can drop below 55 degrees in your zone, we don't ship until we see 3 or more days above that. You can be in zone 5 on the east coast and it is cold - we don't ship; however, zone 5 on the west coast is fine - we ship. Some varieties are low inventory and cannot be replaced if the original order arrives damaged.

 Cancellation Policy: Orders can be cancelled up 2 weeks before the order is scheduled to ship.

 Refund Policy: Open order upon arrival and check for any problems such as breakage. If you are not satisfied with your order, a full refund will be issued if we are notified within 10 days of arrival.

Early shipping to your zone:
If you want to have the bulbs to start them early we can ship in an insulated carton with heat packs but there is an extra charge of $16.00 per box. Further, this winter packing only provides 48 hours of protection requiring us to ship either overnight or 2nd day. This of course increases your shipping expense further. If you are interested in this service please
contact  our Internet sales staff or make a comment in the comments section at the end of your order.

Phyto certification, or phytosanitary certification, is a government's stamp of approval on plants, stating that they are safe for import or export. Most countries, including the United States and Canada, require certification before plants can be shipped or sold. This may require fees in excess of $85 for the cost of the phytosantary certification plus shipping and handling fees.

***Free shipping is not provided for orders going out of the U.S. or orders requesting to be shipped earlier than the scheduled ship date.***
