Sooner Plant Farm Management Staff

NOTE: Although each plant is inspected before shipping, there are times when a plant(s) may experience some shipping stress. This is almost always only a cosmetic issue and the plant(s) should recover quickly after planting. Yellow, and or brown leaves, leaf drop, or tip burn are typical symptoms that you could possibly see, but as stated previously, it is merely a cosmetic issue and will not affect the plant’s overall health. Please consult your planting instructions and remove any bad foliage and or lightly prune the plant and allow a minimum of 14-21 days for the plant(s) to recover and to start flushing new growth (light pruning encourages new growth). Because we know most plants will recover once planted, after reviewing a photo of the damaged or unhealthy plant(s), we may request you to plant it and give it some time to recover before we deem a replacement plant(s) be shipped. Should a replacement be necessary, Sooner Plant Farm will pay shipping costs on a plant(s) that have a damage report on file within 24 hours of delivery, for a period of one year from delivery.

Recommended Beginning and Ending Shipping Dates:
    Sooner Plant Farm recommends planting within these times to allow for late spring and early fall freezing temperatures. If you choose the option “SHIP AT THE BEST TIME FOR MY ZONE” at the time of checkout, we will follow the shipping chart below for optimum performance.
