your plants will arrive healthy and in a condition which will give them
the opportunity to grow and perform as we would expect them to under

We do not guarantee plants
that are damaged or are in poor condition due to:
inappropriate extremes in temperature, light, wind, salts, chemicals, or
other conditions that are detrimental to the general health and well
being of the plant(s) once you have received it(them). We feel that it
is as much the customer's responsibility to provide the appropriate care
for the plants that they have purchased as it is our responsibility to
provide quality products and prompt and convenient service. If the
plants that you are purchasing are cold sensitive, we feel that it is
the customer's responsibility to take this into consideration when
placing the order. We normally try to ship orders as promptly as
possible, once an order has been placed and approved. So long as you place your order by Friday at 12:00 midnight CST we will
ship it out the following Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday under typical circumstances and
foregoing postal holidays or other unforeseen circumstances. If at
anytime prior to the package being shipped you decide for us to hold
your order for a later ship date due to unexpected conditions please

have remained in their packages beyond a reasonable amount of time after
having been delivered to the address that the customer has specified
(P.O. boxes included) when placing the order. Once the package has been
transferred from Almost Eden to the USPS it CANNOT be reliably
redirected, if at all. Living and growing plants become perishable items
once they enter their packages and can only reasonably be expected to
tolerate the varied temperature conditions and darkness that they may
experience on their journey for a limited amount of time. Within 24
hours of an order having been shipped Almost Eden will notify you of its
shipment via the email address that you supplied when the order was
originally placed. If you feel that your package may need special
instructions provided to the US Mail Carrier please let us know and we
will be happy to include them on the outside of your package.
