-CHOICE: Bigger box + choice select + less trimming = superior specimens normally not provided under the flat rate system.
-HEAT PACKS: We can ship out all year round, but that doesn’t mean we can ship to you. If you live in a FROZEN state and don’t want to wait until the thaw we can add heat packs. The parcel will also be wrapped / sealed / taped more thoroughly than usual. For best results add on this upgrade for as many true tropical plants you order, or know that each upgrade unit will provide 2 heat packs to the parcel. If you only add 2 heat packs to a bigger order we can’t be held responsible if things die. A lot of stuff in the inventory can deal with being cold actually, but other stuff simply cannot. If you see this message then the order will be held until you thaw, unless you add heat packs (72 hour). Unless you have it shipped to your workplace (recommended), they might be labelled advising the USPS hold the parcel indoors at the Office for you to pick up (they may or may not actually do it).
Start indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost. Surface-sow and keep moist until sprouts appear, which can take up to three weeks or so. Transplant into the garden when weather has settled and soil is warm. Provide full sun, rich soil and ample moisture.
