We ship year round, using USPS services. We do occasionally use FedEx and UPS, where most cost effective (typically large orders). Shopping cart does not include these vendors. We will advise best options and delivery time frames at time of order should we see an opportunity to save shipping costs. USPS 99% of the time is the most cost effective option.
We carry a variety of items, some of which have specific shipping services.
- Live plants must ship USPS Priority. Heat packs are available in the webstore under Miscellaneous. During extreme cold weather; we may hold orders even with a heat pack. Customers will be advised at time of order and updated when order ships.
- Live animals must ship USPS Priority Express.
- Orders that contain only books may use USPS Media Mail.
