Warranty & Returns

Standard Warranty:

All of our trees and shrubs come with a 30-day warranty from the date of delivery. This means that if your tree/shrub is damaged in shipment or if it dies within 30 days of your delivery, we will gladly offer a replacement or credit. Should you receive your tree/shrub during dormancy, and it does not emerge from dormancy by June 1st - the same replacement policy applies.

If, within this period, you notice any issues with the health or condition of your plants, please contact us immediately. We will work with you to provide a suitable solution.

1 Year Extended Warranty Option:

For added peace of mind, we offer a 1 year extended warranty option. You can choose to purchase an extended warranty for 12% of your cart total at the time of purchase. This extended warranty covers your trees and shrubs for 1 year from the date of delivery. If your tree/shrub dies within the extended warranty period, we will provide you with a replacement plant or issue store credit for the amount of your original purchase. Shipping fees are not included.

3. Warranty Claim Process:

If you need to make a warranty claim, please follow these steps:

  • Contact our customer support team at Support@GardensoftheWorld.com as soon as you notice any issues with your plant's health.
  • Provide your order number, a description of the issue, and photos documenting the issue.
  • We may request additional photos or other information to assess the problem.
FAQ

How are heights measured?

Tree and Shrub heights are measured from the top of the root ball or soil, measuring only the above ground portion of your tree or shrub.

How does shipping work?

We ship either UPS or via our own delivery trucks. After you place your order you'll receive notifications at each step of the way to keep you informed on your item's travels!

Many items are listed in Gallon sizes, what does that mean?

The Gallons refer to the size of the pot that the plant is in. It's simply an industry standard for sizing trees and shrubs. All of our items should have the actual height listed on the description page. If you have any questions regarding sizing, feel free to reach out to us!

Do you help with plant suggestions?

Of course! Feel free to use our chat feature to talk to a GardenPro or reach out to us at Support@GardensoftheWorld.com.

Sure! Include a note during checkout or reach out to us at Support@GardensoftheWorld.com immediately after placing your order, and we'd be happy to help!

Description

Transform your garden into a vibrant haven for pollinators with our Blue Stocking Bee Balm (Monarda didyma 'Blue Stocking'). This stunning perennial is not just a feast for the eyes but also a magnet for bees and butterflies, making it an essential addition to any pollinator-friendly landscape.

Growing Zones: Blue Stocking Bee Balm thrives in USDA Hardiness Zones 4-9, ensuring its adaptability to a wide range of climates. Whether you're gardening in the cooler northern regions or the balmy south, this bee balm is sure to grace your garden with its brilliant blue hues.

Basic Care Tips:

  • Sunlight: Plant your Blue Stocking Bee Balm in a location that receives full to partial sunlight. These beauties prefer at least 6 hours of sunlight daily for optimal growth and blooming.

  • Soil: Well-draining soil is key to the success of your bee balm. Ensure the soil is rich in organic matter and maintains a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Mulching around the base can help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

  • Watering: While bee balm is somewhat drought-tolerant once established, it appreciates consistent moisture. Water the plant regularly, especially during dry spells, to encourage lush foliage and abundant blooms.

  • Spacing: Give your Blue Stocking Bee Balm some room to spread its wings. Plant them about 18-24 inches apart to allow for proper air circulation and prevent powdery mildew.

  • Pruning: To encourage bushier growth and prolong blooming, deadhead spent flowers regularly. In late fall or early spring, consider cutting the plant back to about 6 inches above the ground to promote fresh, vigorous growth.

  • Attracting Pollinators: As the name suggests, Blue Stocking Bee Balm is a pollinator magnet. Be prepared to welcome bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds to your garden. Watch nature unfold as these vital pollinators dance among the vibrant blue flowers.
