Sweet Potato Shipping Information
With about 50 years of sweet potato growing and shipping
experience, our grower tells us that there are specific times
periods best suited for gardening success. Plants are shipped
to you after danger of frost has likely passed and the ground
has warmed up. This gives the plants plenty of growing season
to produce many big potatoes before harvest time. Your plants
will be shipped as near as possible to these dates.
Additionally, orders are shipped on a "first in, first out"
basis. That is, people that place their orders in October,
November, December etc. will get their orders before folks
that wait until close to planting time. Please
plan accordingly. Also note, we will not know when
your order ships until they actually leave the farm. We will
email you as soon as we hear something. Plants
are not ready and do not begin shipping until approximately
mid-April to the most southern zone.
Plants are packed into time-proven packing materials the same
day as they are mailed. Good plants, properly packed and
shipped, will LIVE, GROW, and PRODUCE.
Please note that sweet potatoes can only be shipped to all
lower 48 states with the exception of
California. (Sorry California. Even though the plants are
shipped with an inspection certificate, the California
Department of Agriculture holds up shipments resulting in the
death of the plants.)
