Mail Order Sales: Our shipping season for violets begins approximately May 1st and lasts until approximately October 31st (weather permitting). We ship growing supplies (pots, soil etc.) year round. There is a $10 minimum order (not including pack/ship charges) for starter plant orders. You can order starter plants from us in three different ways during shipping season:
1. You can have us choose the varieties for you. We call this type of order a Violet Showcase Plant Assortment. A Showcase Plant Assortment is a group of 6 or 12 different varieties of starter plants which we choose for you. Descriptions of the varieties in the assortment will be included. For the first half of our violet shipping season (May, June, July) we send out 6 plant and 12 plant assortments only. These plant assortments consist of our choice of varieties. Packing and Priority Mail shipping charges are included in the assortment prices. If you add additional plants to a Showcase assortment from our Violet List or from the Ready to Go section additional packing and shipping costs will apply. The varieties in the assortments are not necessarily from the Ready to Go section.
2, You can download a copy of our descriptive plant list and choose the varieties you would like. We refer to this type of order as a customer choice order. For the second 1/2 of shipping season (August, September, October) we continue to ship assortments and also ship customer choice orders. For those customers who wish to order by variety name from our plant list it is very wise to order as early as possible. Packing and Priority Mail shipping charges apply to customer choice orders. The 2012 list expires December 1, 2012. Not all varieties will be offered on the 2013 Violet List.
