Shipping Information
Plants are shipped at the proper planting time
We will ship your plants at the proper planting time for your area.  We start shipping weekly beginning with our customers in the warmest regions (garden zones 9 & 10) the end of March.  Orders are shipped every week from then on until the beginning of June when our customers in the coldest regions (garden zones 3 & 4) can safely plant their flowers
 
Please note that UPS does not heat their transport trucks.  This may mean that we have to delay shipping if our nightly temperatures here in Northern Michigan dip below 32 degrees.   Conversely if the weather is too hot the plants can spoil. If you order is delayed due to unusually hot or cold conditions know that we will ship your order as soon as the weather permits.

We ship according to your garden zone.

Plant Hardiness Zone Map



You may request your plants to be shipped at a different time. 
You may request that your plants be delivered at a time other than the one scheduled. 

Please be advised that UPS does not heat the back of their delivery trucks or warehouses so if you request an order to be delivered earlier than scheduled, Mischel’s Greenhouses Ltd. will not be responsible for cold damage to the plants either in shipment or after delivery. 

Plants may be shipped up to 30 days later than our garden zone delivery schedule unless the weather in your area or our area is too hot too ship.  

Custom Packaging Makes for Safe Travels for your Plants
Our custom packaging carefully cradles and protects each plant during shipping. The pot and the bottom of each plant is first placed inside a plastic bag to retain moisture and prevent leaking of water and soil.  Each pot is then securely loaded into our custom designed inserts which keep the plants in place and prevents damage during shipment.  The inserts are then loaded into shipping box. Each box holds a maximum of 12 plants. Up to 4 boxes (48 plants) can be bundled together for a shipment.  Orders over 48 plants are divided into multiple shipments.

Fast shipment ensures quality plants 
All of the plants you receive are live plants growing in a large 4" pot.  We do not ship seeds, bare root stock or bulbs.  Live plants can not travel boxed up for more than three days without losing quality.  All orders are grown and shipped from our greenhouses in northern Michigan.  Orders that UPS can deliver within 3 days or less will be shipped UPS Ground. Orders that take UPS more than 3 days to deliver will be shipped UPS 3-Day Select.
 
Orders will be delivered to your door, you don't need to sign for them. Note that UPS cannot deliver to P.O. Boxes.  
 
All orders are shipped out at the beginning of the week to make sure that they arrive to you by Friday of that week and are not sitting in a UPS truck or warehouse over the weekend.
 
Shipping Charges
Because we are shipping live plants they can not be boxed or travel for more than 3 days.  This requires us to ship via air to some states at an additional cost.
