    Curbside Pickup

    • Q: When can I pick up my plants? 
      • A: Upon checkout, you’ll be able to choose your preferred pickup date and time. We need time to process your order, which is why same and next day pickups aren’t currently options.

      • A: When you’ve arrived at our store, please call 522-GROW, and we’ll bring your plants out or direct you where to pick up. 
    • Q: Can I order bags of soil, mulch, etc.?
      • A: Yes! Though, to keep our employees and customers as safe as possible, we will no longer be loading soil, mulch, and stone into open vehicles. Upon arrival, one of our employees will direct you where to go, and we ask that you load the soil yourself. Exceptions may be made for flat-bed trucks and trunks that are completely closed off to the rest of the vehicle.
    • Q: Can I add to my order?
      • A: Not during pickup. You may call a day or two ahead to add to your order, but we can't accept additions on the spot. 

    Gift Certificates 

      • Q: I have a paper gift certificate from a previous year. Can I use it? 
        • A: We’d prefer that you hang on to your paper gift certificates to use next year to lessen contact with our staff, though, like cash, we will accept it. Keep in mind that our gift certificates never expire!

      • Q: My shrub is under warranty but didn’t survive the winter.  Can I exchange it?
        • A: We will not be processing any returns or plant guarantee exchanges at this time. We will honour previous years' guarantees, though we will process them at a later date (TBA).
