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 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.

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!

Are you ready to savor the sweet taste of homegrown peaches straight from your own backyard? Look no further than our Contender Peach Tree! This exquisite fruit-bearing marvel is the key to transforming your garden into a peach paradise. Let's dive into why this tree is the perfect addition to your outdoor space.

Why Choose the Contender Peach Tree?

  • Delectable Peaches: The Contender Peach Tree is renowned for producing juicy, freestone peaches that are bursting with flavor. With a perfect balance of sweetness and a hint of tanginess, these peaches are a delight for your taste buds.

  • Cold-Hardy: Thriving in USDA Hardiness Zones 5-8, this tree can withstand colder temperatures, making it suitable for a wide range of climates. Whether you're in the northern states or the sunnier south, the Contender Peach Tree has you covered.

  • Self-Pollinating: You don't need a second peach tree for pollination. The Contender Peach Tree is self-fertile, ensuring bountiful harvests without the hassle of finding a pollination partner.

  • Compact Size: With a mature height of 8-10 feet, this tree is ideal for smaller gardens and is a breeze to maintain. Its manageable size means you can easily pick your peaches when they're ripe.

Basic Care Tips:

  • Location: Choose a sunny spot in your garden where the tree will receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight daily.

  • Soil: Well-draining, loamy soil is the key to success. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging.

  • Planting: Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball and place the tree at the same depth it was in the nursery container. Backfill with soil and water thoroughly.

  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the growing season. A deep watering once a week is usually sufficient.

  • Pruning: Prune annually to maintain shape and remove any dead or diseased branches. This promotes airflow and healthy fruit production.

  • Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to encourage vigorous growth and fruit development.

Growing Zones: The Contender Peach Tree thrives in USDA Hardiness Zones 5-8, which covers a broad range of the United States. It's perfectly suited for areas with cold winters and mild summers.
