Plants will be shipped semi-bare-root (with little soil) from December to April. As the plants are dormant (sleeping), it is perfectly safe to send them bare-root. Winter is the safest and the best time to ship plants.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
