PLANT CARE PRODUCTS & MERCH ARE STILL AVAILABLE OVER THE WINTER!
Absolutely! At checkout, you'll have the option to select 'Local Pick-up'. We have locations in both Carleton Place, Ontario and Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia. Send us a message or an email and we'll send you details and directions.
Absolutely! At checkout, there is a shipping option for "Local Delivery" within the Ottawa National Capital Region (NCR) or the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM). We charge a small fee ($10) that covers gas, vehicle wear-and-tear, etc. The good news is that your plant won’t need to go through the mail.
For the NCR, we'll deliver as far as Orleans (east), Gatineau (north), Manotick (south), Carleton Place (south-west) and Renfrew (west).
For the HRM, we'll deliver as far as Clam Harbour (east), Middle Musquodoboit (north-east), Shubenacadie (north), Peggy's Cove (south-west) and Upper Tantallon (west).
If you live within these bubbles, you're good-to-go! Make sure you identify your availability for delivery in the 'Special Instructions' at checkout.
We offer 1-2 day, flat-rate, courier shipping by FedEx, Purolator or UPS where possible. Some more rural locations will have a 3-4 day shipping time. In these cases we will pack the plant accordingly. Choose the shipping option based on the province where you reside at checkout.
No US shipping for now (sorry). Still working on figuring out the phytosanitary certification process in our new locale.
Our plants are carefully screened, quarantined and acclimatized when they arrive at our shop. We ship either bare root or potted in Molly's Aroid Mix. Depending on where you live, we can play with how we package and will try to reduce your shipping costs as much as reasonable (with plant health as the first priority).
We guarantee that our plants will arrive to you alive. That being said, once the plants are in the hands of our shipping partner, we don't know what happens to them. Please contact us in the event of an unreasonable shipping delay, we will deal directly with the shipping partner.
If your plants arrive and there is damage or no reasonable chance of revival, please send us a message or email with photos within 24 hours of receiving your purchase for further direction.
Ultimately, we guarantee your satisfaction but have to set limits. Please communicate any issues that you have with the product and we'll always do our best to help. Please read the Shipping Policy under the "About Us" tab.
We bring plants into our shop in batches. Each plant of a specific species will be similar to the image depicted on the website. The size may vary slightly.
We select boxes that are reinforced and matched to fit the size of your purchase. This ensures your plant is secure to prevent damage. We ship bare root to reduce shipping costs. This does expose the plant to a short period of 'non-optimal conditions'. To counteract this, we wrap the root system based on the type of plant we are shipping (wet, damp or dry) and protect the foliage from damage. We only ship by flat-rate courier service in order to ensure your plant gets to you in a timely manner. If the temperature during the expected shipping duration will be below 10 degC, a complimentary heat pack will be included. Please be mindful that some plants are more resilient than others, feel free to drop us a line if you have questions about shipping.
In addition, we do not ship perishable items during the winter months (November – March). During winter, Local Pick-up and Sweetlife Flora delivery services will be available for plants within the service areas outlined above.
