   Important Shipping Details

 Hosta Choice Gardens is an Ontario based seasonal specialty nursery whose inventory and gardens are not forced early to ship to the masses. We regret that we cannot ship orders earlier to warmer areas of Canada. Due to the effects of global warming we are finding that our Spring weather in Southwestern Ontario is anything but consistent. We know that all areas of Canada are adjusting to climate change and appreciate your understanding that we will be commencing our shipping later (May 30th) than in the last 24 years. At Hosta Choice Gardens we want to be able to send you a quality product.

*Website (on-line) sales will close for Spring 2022 ordering on May 9th @ 10:00 p.m. as we have now reached our maximum order capacity of 100 orders. 

 

From May 10th - August 15th we must focus on clients visiting our retail location as well as shipping orders that were received in Spring 2022.

Note: Our website will be available for browsing only from May 9th and as such our online shopping cart will be disabled. 

 

LATE SEASON MAIL ORDERS WILL BE CONSIDERED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND ONLY IF PRE-APPROVED. 

Mail-order shipping costs may increase at anytime (other than special pricing periods). 

   Shipping charges are quoted for orders placed and paid for on the day of ordering. Shipping live plants across Canada requires careful preparation and boxing. Shipping charges do not take into account the staff labour it takes to prepare your order prior to shipping (an average 6 plant order takes 1 hour to prepare). Additions to an already placed order(s) may require additional shipping charges. We ship FedEx-Ground on most orders but reserve the right to ship orders under $150.00 and/or orders made during our "Free Shipping" promotions by Canada Post- Expedited. 

 

 All hostas are bare-rooted and have the roots wrapped in moist paper towel. The moist paper towel is placed inside a plastic bag and then the complete plant is "florist" wrapped in Kraft paper before being carefully boxed. We use recycled shredded paper for packing...please open your package carefully in an area were the shredded paper can be easily cleaned up. We wrap and package our shipments so they will arrive to you ready to be planted...even if the plants are in transit for 7+ days. Individual leaves may be removed to fit into our shipping boxes. We take every care to ensure your plants arrive in pristine shape. 

 Orders are not necessarily shipped in the order they are received.

Your order may have selections that emerge at different times and are specific to the particular hosta species. Once all your selections are ready they will have their roots cleaned and then be wrapped, boxed and shipped.

Orders are however pulled/reserved in the order that they are received.

 Fuller pots go to the early-birds as do the best divisions. We remove all mail-order potted inventory from our sales floor before we open our nursery to walk-in customers.
