Most of our Nursery Stock (Potted and Bare-root) does not qualify for shipping due to restrictions and costs associated with weight and size.
Mail Order Qualifications & Pricing
Our website calculates some of the available shipping prices, however, due to the variations in sizes, weights and shipment conditions between products, certain products will require a shipping quote after checkout.
If your order qualifies for shipping at checkout but requires a shipping quote, you can select “SHIPPING QUOTE” to complete your order, which notifies us of your quote inquiry. Please contact us if you have not received your quote within 5 business days after placing your order.
Mail Order Providers
Orders that qualify for shipping are shipped via Canada Post.
If you would like to use another service provider other than Canada Post for shipping, it is your responsibility to organize the shipment and contact us at earthyorganics.ca to confirm the details.
Shipping Outside of BC
Most plant products that qualify for shipping can be sent outside of BC within Canada. Certain plant products may have additional regulations that limit where we can send within Canada. Other products such as tools and clothing also qualify for shipping within Canada.
