  • We guarantee that all plants are 100% laboratory propagated from seed and are shipped from our location in healthy condition and are properly identified.
  • We guarantee to provide all proper export documents as required by the U.S. However since we have no control over the shipment once it exits the U.S., Purchaser/Buyer assumes all risk for international shipments.
  • As we have no control over the environmental growing conditions and any pathogens or pests that the plants may be exposed to after leaving our greenhouses, we cannot guarantee your ultimate success with these plants.
  • Due to the aforementioned conditions and as with any perennial, plants large enough to produce blooms or that have bloomed, may not produce blooms within the first several seasons after transplant.
  • In the event of crop failure and/or plant(s) fail to meet our quality standards resulting in non-shipment of plant(s) ordered, a full refund of the purchase price including shipping & handling will be given.
  • Prices subject to change without notice.
  • Our recommended planting and cultivation instructions are intended solely as a guide and represent our cummulative and substantial knowledge of a particular species and as such do not imply any guarantee of success with the particular species involved.

In any event, our liability is limited solely to the purchase price of plants less shipping, handling and export documentation fees
