Shipping Plants to Your Home When You Buy Plants Online

The ways that we live, work, play, and shop has forever been transformed by the power of the Internet. It may come as a surprise to some that shipping plants to your home has huge benefits over going to your local retailer, just because it seems so counterintuitive to buy plants online! But actually, not only is shipping plants more convenient, but you also get benefits related to cost, quality, and more! Let’s dive into the benefits of how to ship plants straight to your door.

As always, we recommend checking your United States Department of Agriculture Plant Hardiness Zone before buying any plant. You can do this at the top of our website. This is to be sure the type of plant will survive in the area that you live in.


Convenience:

What is more convenient than popping online, browsing through beautiful photos of gorgeous plants, placing an order and then just waiting for the package to arrive? We can’t think of a more convenient way to create your perfect landscape! Especially if you have limited transportation or even just a small car, it’s certainly nice to not have to try to load up plants into your own vehicle and worry about damage during transportation.

Worried that you may deal with damage when shipping plants to your home? Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term upside down box test and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled for a couple days, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside. Learn more about our ship service on our dedicated shipping page here. If it does, not to worry… we have a one month warranty on all plants from the delivery date.


High Quality, Diverse Selection:

This is perhaps one of the best benefits of shipping plants from an online nursery like Perfect Plants.

You are no longer limited to what your local nursery offers and instead, can browse many different kinds of plants, some that you may have never considered growing based on availability where you live! And don’t think that you have to sacrifice quality when mailing plants. The plants you see on our website are the same plants that will show up at your door! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of the actual plants and trees we’ve grown on our family operated nursery. (Do keep in mind, however, that your plants and trees may not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree.) Even growers with no green thumb recommend our plants! House plants are up next!


Low Cost & Excellent Customer Service:

Another huge benefit of shipping plants is being able to buy garden plants online and trees cheaper than what you’d pay at your local nursery or home depot. This is due to less overhead costs associated with running a traditional brick and mortar store. We love being able to pass on these savings to our customers with our online store!

Additionally, we frequently run promotions and send savings opportunities to those who subscribe to our mailing list — so be sure to subscribe (10% off your first order when you do). Every order will include plant care instructions on how to take care of your plant until it is in the ground.

Finally, you don’t have to worry about receiving less customer service when you’re shipping plants from us. You can call us, email us, or chat directly with us on our website. This nursery isn’t just our business, it’s our life. Since we are so involved in the growing of the plants on a daily basis, we can vouch for the quality of every living plant purchased from us. Since our humble beginnings, we have steadily grown through our steadfast commitment to the satisfaction of every customer, our unwavering dedication when it comes to growing healthy, beautiful plants and trees that customers can depend on, and a staff who shares our passion and respect for all things that grow from the ground.

We also frequently publish blogs and have Grow Guides to help give you even more resources to grow your dream garden.
