Store Policies


Our orders are mailed USPS twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We are a small business and each order is carefully packed by hand. During our busiest time of year, please allow at least two to three weeks for your order to be processed.

Warranty Policy

We warrant only to the extent of purchase price that seeds sold are as described, within recognized tolerances. We give no other or further warranty, express or implied. The placing of an order with us constitutes acceptance of the above-mentioned terms and conditions by the purchaser. 

It may be necessary to delay shipment of your order till the next harvest of fresh seed. Please be patient with our endeavor to supply you with seed of optimum quality and freshness. 

Prices are subject to change without notice. 

Returns Policy

No returns, please. Consider your order carefully.

Our Customers

Our customers are an unusual lot. They are dedicated, informed, and unstinting in their . They should be studied. But don't worry. We have not and never will sell our mailing list. It is not necessary to make a special request, as this has always been our policy. The last thing our mailboxes, (and our forests) need is more unsolicited mail. We are in the business of selling seeds, not names.

"Not Currently Available"

Due to the variable nature of our seed harvests, some species are occasionally unavailable. We mark these "Not currently available." When the next harvest is gathered, cleaned, and packed up, the listing will have the "Not currently available" label removed, and you can assume that it is again available.

Phone Consultations

One of the most difficult aspects of this business is trying to recommend seeds or plants or procedures for areas that are being described to us over the phone. All sites differ in a multitude of ways; eliciting relevant information is a lengthy and demanding process. We hope to be experts but don't aspire to be psychics. (There is no substitute for actually seeing the site).

If you want information on seed-sowing rates, please have your area measured out in advance.

Because we are a small business with many irons in the fire, we request that phone calls be limited to five to ten minutes per customer. Phone consultations of more than ten minutes must be arranged by appointment and are billed at our hourly rate of $100.00.
