sample flat
  • PLANT SIZE: 3" plugs, grown in a 50 plug tray.
  • PLANT QUANTITY: Each plant kit includes 50 plants. For single species orders, you will receive the quantity of plants that you order. Trays will be cut to size for smaller orders. You will receive the plugs in their plastic containers.
  • SHIPPING PLANTS: Plants will be shipped via ground transportation from Cardno's nursery in Indiana. Boxes will be opened on the pick-up day for distribution. Out of the box, plant foliage is often bent and slightly yellowed. This condition is temporary. Water immediately when you arrive at home. Plants will recover and thrive through the shipping experience.
  • CARE INSTRUCTIONS: When you bring your plants home, place them in a cool, semi-shaded area until you are ready to plant. If the soil around the plant roots is dry, water to keep the roots moist, but not saturated. If watered properly and protected from extreme conditions, such as excessive heat, sun, strong winds, or frost or freezing, plants can be kept in their original plug trays for up to several weeks. When you are ready to plant, remove the plugs by gently pushing up from the bottom of each plug in the tray. Use a hand trowel to dig a hole just slightly larger than the root mass of the plug. When the plug is placed in the hole, the top of the root mass should be level with the soil surface. Fill any gaps around the root mass, using the soil removed from the hole.
  • PLANTING TIPS: Research the species in your kit. Write down height, color, and bloom time. This information may be provided on the plant tag. Group your plants with taller species in the back. Grouping the same species together can have a greater effect when in bloom. Have fun with color placement.
  • REFUNDS: Orders may be refunded up until the date when plants are shipped. For pick-up orders, refunds must be requested 10 days prior to pick-up days to guarantee the capacity for a refund. For orders delivered to your door, refund requests must be submitted within 24 hours to guarantee capacity for a refund.
  • RETURNS: FOTR cannot accept returns on plant material. Once you receive your order, all sales are final.
