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.

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 your 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!

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!

Description

Welcome to the world of lush greenery with our Sensitive Fern (Onoclea sensibilis). This elegant fern is a must-have for any garden enthusiast, adding a touch of grace and vibrancy to your outdoor space. Known for its finely textured fronds and adaptability, the Sensitive Fern is the perfect choice for both novice and seasoned gardeners.

Growing Zones: Sensitive Ferns thrive in USDA hardiness zones 4 to 9, making them an excellent addition to a wide range of climates. Whether you're in the chilly winters of zone 4 or the milder temperatures of zone 9, this fern is adaptable and resilient.

Basic Care Tips: 1. Location: Plant your Sensitive Fern in a partially shaded to fully shaded area. These ferns prefer moist, well-drained soil and can be commonly found along stream banks and in other damp areas in the wild. Mimicking these conditions will ensure optimal growth.

2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Watering frequency may vary based on your local climate, but aim to maintain a consistently damp environment for the fern to thrive.

3. Soil Requirements: Sensitive Ferns prefer acidic to neutral soil. Adding organic matter, such as compost, to the soil can enhance its fertility and moisture-retaining capabilities.

4. Pruning and Maintenance: Remove any dead or yellowing fronds regularly to encourage new growth. This fern doesn't require extensive pruning but benefit from a tidy appearance.

5. Winter Care: In colder climates, provide a layer of mulch around the base of the fern in late fall to help protect the plant during winter. This extra layer acts as insulation against harsh temperatures.
