Because a few people have given me negative or neutral feedback on Ebay , we are debating about not shipping thru ebay next winter or heat of summer. If you have no patience and live up north please do not order from us in the winter. Wait for spring. Otherwise for an example if you live in Kotzebue, Alaska and order in November, expect a shipment to you in about Mid May! We can't get tropical plants to you even with a heat pack when your temperatures are 50 below zero! Tropical plants are just that. It means they will die in freezing weather. For African violets, that temp is 38 degrees. They can also cook if left in a mailbox in temperatures above 94 and sometimes even less. As a seller and grower we try our best. We expect the same from our buyers.
Sitting out on an airport tarmac or back end of an unheated truck for just a few minutes in freezing conditions means the plant will get to you as brown mush. If you are concerned about your order we are more than happy to communicate. Just do not leave us anything but positive feedback without communicating with us first. We try very hard to please and do this because we love it, certainly not for the money. Oh forgot to mention we will gladly ship anytime if you are willing to take full risk and state this on your order.
