All plant orders will be held and sent out according to the USDA Last Frost Guidelines based on where you live. If you would like your plants sooner we can ship them, but we cannot guarantee plants that are shipped ahead of the Last Frost USDA guidelines. Please mark orders in the customer comments as "Ship Now Per Customer." All of are plants are shipped bare-root or in 2" net pots and are semi-mature plants that will thrive when planted correctly after given a larger plant container to grow in. We seldom have problems with our plants, but occasionally orders can get damaged in transit or shipment delay due to circumstances that are out of our control. At LilyBLOOMS Aquatic Gardens we believe in our products and want you to be 100% satisfied! We value your business and we will do everything we can to make your experience at ponddeals.com as enjoyable as possible!
