Fresh Plants By The LB
Please Read Before Ordering
How to order:
please email us at for orders and availability of plants. Place orders early so you can receive your fresh plant order, It is first come first serve and the amount of plant material we have is dependent on Mother Nature and other factors. This means that you may not receive the plants you requested. We try to send out emails informing you if we can't harvest for your order, to ensure that you can source from somewhere else. For summer crops it's best to order in late winter, or early spring.
What to Put in Your Email for Order:
When sending us an email for ordering please put:
1. What plant you want in the subject line and in the email
2. How much you would like by pound (2lb minimum)
3. If you want priority or overnight shipping (WE ONLY GUARANTEE OVERNIGHT)
4. An address for shipping
5. Paypal email for invoicing or other payment preference
*Minimum for shipping is 2lbs of plant material, you can mix and match herbs, but can't order 1/2 lbs of plants- whole pounds only please.
We encourage overnight shipping to people who are out of state, but will ship priority. We only guarantee a plants condition when shipped overnight we don't guarantee how long it takes to get there as this is out of our control.
We ship USPS and will not ship with another carrier at this time.
The pricing for overnight can sometimes be double to triple the amount of money then your order.
Example: 2 lbs of St Johns Wort going to LA, CA
St Johns Wort- $18x2 = 36
overnight shipping- $80-112
How Do You Package Your Herbs For Shipping?
When shipping fresh herbs we carefully package them in food grade paper with a food grade ice pack to ensure they stay as fresh as possible during shipping.
How Will I know When My Order Will Come?
Plants are harvested at different times and aren't something that can be timed. Therefore we ship when the plants are ready. We will try to send an email to you the week of harvest and shipping to ensure you or someone will be home to receive your order, but sometimes that doesn't happen. Because of this we can not ship around each persons schedule. Harvesting plants is also weather dependent therefore timing of dates can change. We hope you understand.
How To Pay:
We send you a paypal invoice with your tracking number once your order has shipped. We do not take payment for pre-orders because preorders are not a guarantee.
For Pick Up:
In the email for ordering let us know if you want to pick up. Pick ups start at 2pm and end at 6pm. Because fresh plant material is perishable we will inform you on the day that you need to pick up.
