Herbs Delivered!

No matter where you live, we can deliver herbs to your door safely!

About Richters’ unique plant shipping system:

"I received my shipment of six potted plants from you several weeks ago, and I felt that I could wait no longer in writing to you and complimenting you not only on the health of the plants in general, but the ingenious box that you have come up with to ensure their safe arrival to their new place of residence.

I must confess that I have ordered plants through the mail before, and have never been very satisfied with the results.

Imagine the shock I got when I opened up the box and saw such lovely, green, healthy plants! They were even blooming, and didn’t seem to have suffered whatsoever from their sojourn through the mail! I was astounded by the ease in which they adapted to being placed outside in the shade, and then into the garden! There were no signs of setback whatsoever! As a matter of fact, as soon as they got transplanted, they took off, and are lovelier than I could have ever possibly hoped for!"

  • Out of stock items will be back ordered if expected within a few months.
About cancellations.
  • Orders must be cancelled in writing.
  • Because plug trays are planted to order there is no credit or refund if cancelled after 4 weeks. Plug tray orders will be fully credited or refunded if cancelled within 2 weeks of ordering; or 50% if cancelled within 4 weeks.
About returns.
  • All perishable goods such as seeds, rootstock, bulbs and plants cannot be returned.
  • With prior authorization, all non-perishable goods may be returned for credit. A 20% re-stocking charge will apply. Contact customer service for authorization.
About shipping charges. About delivery.
  • Seeds are generally shipped by lettermail if possible. Larger packages are shipped by surface parcel post or surface small packet.
  • Plants, plug packs and plug trays by Xpresspost in Canada, and by UPS in the U.S.
  • All other items such as books, dried herbs, and gardening supplies are shipped by surface mail.
  • Rush orders can be shipped by faster means at cost if paid by credit card; mark "RUSH".
  • Seasonal items, such as bulbs, tubers, rootlets, mushroom kits, should be ordered early. For example, "fall" items should be ordered by July, "spring" items by March.
  • We cannot ship perishable items, such as plants, bulbs, etc. until our weather permits. This may not coincide with the season elsewhere: in parts of British Columbia or the United States, for example. Because of sheer volume in spring, some plant orders may not be shipped until early June. If you wish to specify an earlier shipping date on your order, we will try to accommodate you, but we cannot guarantee that date.
  • Most plant and plug tray shipments to U.S. destinations will be shipped from Buffalo, NY. We take care of all customs fees and paperwork free-of-charge. All U.S. plant shipments are government inspected and come with a phytosanitary certificate provided free-of-charge.
About international plant shipments.
    We do not ship plants outside Canada and the United States. The burden of complying with a myriad of plant quarantine regulations, plus the excessive cost of express shipping, no longer makes it sensible to ship live plants outside North America. Of course, we continue to ship most other products worldwide, including seeds, dried herbs, books and more.
