This carol they began that hour,
With a hey and a ho and a hey nonino,
How that a life was but a flower
In springtime, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding ding,
Sweet lovers love the spring.

William Shakespeare, As You Like It

Spring. Time for pollinators, plants, mad pursuits. Venus in the morning sky, bees in the sun, plants surging with promise. A promise of future harvest. A harvest of figs. Our Black Jack fig, below, produces prolifically and delectably.

Our next scheduled ground plant ship date for East Coast locations is Monday April 21, 2014.

We ship to West Coast, South and Midwest locations Mondays through Thursdays. If temperatures en route or at destination are projected to be below 32 degrees F, your plant order may be placed on hold to avoid damage. We ship non-plant items every day. Please email us if you have questions about delivery times. We will contact you if weather precludes safe shipping of tender plants.

Many of our plants are not suitable for year-round growing outdoors in Zones 3-8. Please check your USDA Zone prior to placing an order so you can make the appropriate selection.

We are pleased to now offer the Australian finger lime. The fruit of this elegant fine-textured shrub is known as citrus caviar for good cause, although lime-flavored pop rocks come to mind when biting into their pearly vesicles. The possibilities for culinary enhancements are endless.

Yerba Mate plants are another new offering that will excite even the most jaded gardener. This selection from the rainforests of South America is great fun to grow and use in the kitchen.

New seed kits include ethnic herb selections from Thailand to New Delhi to Naples, so be sure to take a look at these offerings. Always wanted to grow your own Noni tree? Now's your chance.

Michael Michaud's botanical tableware continues to dazzle. Fruits, leaves and bark are transformed into heirloom-quality plates, miniature boxes and serving pieces. His New York foundry is one of the few remaining that continue the ancient art of lost wax casting from natural objects. A new piece, the apple box, is now available and warrants close inspection.
