Yes, we are sold out of a lot items, especially plug flats, due to unprecedented demand late in 2020 and very high demand in spring of 2021. Most of these are available on “Back-Order”. We suggest ordering early for later shipments. Online inventory will be updated as items are ready for shipment if not already pre ordered. Lead time on back orders will depend on what the item is, and if it is already in production. If the item does not show “Available on Back Order”, then we are sold out of that item for the year.
Please note that most 125 count plug flats are “grow-to-order” and are rarely grown on speculation.
We are still producing, but it takes time as we are growers, not re-sellers. Therefor, we do not “get things in”.

Neonicotinoids (Neonics): WE DO NOT USE THEM!!
We also keep Honey bees and the use of Neonic insecticides are VERY harmful to beneficial pollinators such as Honey bees. We receive a lot of questions regarding our use of chemical pest controls on our products and Neonics use is the primary inquiry. We hope this will clear this up. For more information on Neonicotinoids, CLICK HERE
Although we are not a Certified Organic operation, we use natural pest controls where ever possible. Items intended for Human consumption, such as herbs, are never sprayed with chemical insecticides or fungicides, are greenhouse grown, and are in compliance with the USDA/APHIS Japanese Beetle Harmonization Program for shipping Interstate.
Inventory quantities updated as often as possible and as items become available to ship.
Seeds, Sedums, Sedum plug flats, and certain other designated items ship year-around. May be dormant when shipped in winter. Trees and shrubs ship late March through October. Most perennials are available for winter shipment, unless sold out, and will ship dormant.
We encourage pre-ordering of plug flats for shipment. These will “Back-order” and will be produced for you. While we do grow some on “speculation”, popular varieties sell out fast.
