  • the dead plant including the roots

We request your patience on certain deciduous plants because some are very slow in leafing out. If you scratch a small patch of the bark and it is soft and bright green underneath, the chances are good that it will leaf out and thrive. Please do not dig a plant out of the ground if you are not certain that it is dead. 

Nursery stock purchased at a discount of 40% or more is guaranteed for the purchase price only. We reserve the right to refuse to honor the guarantee. We are not responsible for animal damage, improper care, growing conditions, lack of or excess moisture or plants that have died in their original containers which have not been planted.

Please take a few minutes to review the information on the warranty instruction sheet presented to you at the time of purchase for water, planting & winter care instructions. If you have lost this information, please contact us for assistance.

We’re always here to help! Call 507-388-4877 or get more planting information or advice.

If you’re not going to plant immediately, store your plants in the shade and check frequently for moisture. On hot days, you may need to water them more than once a day.

Perennials, rhubarb, raspberries and annuals are not guaranteed but we will except returns if they are in the same condition they were in when they left the store within a week of purchase. We have the right to not accept a return of these plants.
