NOTICE TO RESIDENTS OF COLD WEATHER AREAS:
We cannot guarantee against weather damage of our plants in transit. Transportation companies, likewise, will not insure against such damage. We advise, therefore, placing your order either early (Sept.-Oct.) or late (April), or as your weather dictates.
To our Friends and Customers in the European Union and in countries observing European
Department of Agriculture regulations:
We are sorry to inform you that E.U. regulations currently prohibit us from shipping any Camellias and Azaleas into Europe. We hope in time that these strict regulations can be sensibly modified to allow once again for shipment of plant material into your countries. In the meantime, we thank you for your understanding.
