Ordering Info / Return Policy

Notice: Orders are now delayed
We are currently experiencing an extremely heavy volume of orders. Coupled with staffing challenges due to COVID-19, this has unavoidably created significant delays in shipping times. By ordering seeds, you acknowledge and agree that delivery may take up to 30 days in the USA (and up to 60 days for customers outside the USA). We will only replace orders if they are received AFTER the above timeframe (more than 30 or more than 60 days from ordering). Also, please do not expect a tracking number, as mail carriers only sometimes provide tracking information to us right now. Additionally, please be aware that we cannot change your order once it is placed. Please double check your order to make sure it is correct before you place it. We are operating our warehouses and shipping line around the clock. We are trying our very best to balance the safety and health needs of our staff and meet your very important need for seeds. We are so sorry for the delays, and we sincerely thank you for your patience!

 

Trust that our remaining crew here on our Mansfield, Mo. farm is diligently working to deliver your orders — and we are here to support your gardening. All of us are healthy and doing well, and we hope and pray for your health and safety, too.

Thank you for your patience with us, and for the belief you share with us that gardening makes us all more human and more whole.

 

 

RETURN POLICY/Terms and Conditions

All orders are shipped by the U.S. Postal Service, DHL, or FedEx. Estimated time until shipping (amount of time between when you place your order and when it is shipped) is usually 1 to 3 business days (currently 2-3 weeks), though it is our goal to ship orders within 48 hours.

We guarantee your satisfaction on all seeds and products for 2 years from the date of purchase. Seeds are also guaranteed to grow true to type. We generally will not require you to send back your purchase for a replacement or refund. In some cases with larger orders and/or expensive items we may request you return them before we issue a refund/replacement. All products are only eligible for an exchange or refund up to the purchase price of the item.

We are not responsible for return shipping costs. We are in no way responsible for crop failures, insects, disease, floods, drought, terrorism and acts of God.  

We will never sell or give away your information. However, we may contact you at any time in the future.
