When written orders are submitted please list the seed in alphabetical order. Please list alternate seeds if those ordered are not available.
Please note that your order for pound lots will be handled in line with all orders. Orders for smaller quantities of assorted items will be filled in turn after arrival of seed from sources. We suggest that such orders be placed with us prior to September 1st. During the busy spring and fall shipping seasons, orders for small amounts of seed cannot always be filled promptly. Please confine correspondence to the most necessary, and attach a stamped return envelope if inquiry does not concern an order. We reserve the right to return orders received in excess of supplies.
Please mark "confirmation" on all written orders that repeat a previous order either by phone or fax. You are responsible for duplicate orders due to a lack of "confirmation" being clearly marked on confirming orders. We are not responsible for misprints in the catalog. We are not responsible for seed loss or loss in viability due to mail strikes.

All shipments travel at buyer's risk, and claims for damage in transit must be taken up with carriers. It is not possible to have seeds available at all times. A number of perishable items cannot be stored successfully and must be ordered in season. We reserve the right to choose the best method of shipment based on our past experience.

STATEMENT OF POLICY: All seeds are offered cleaned unless marked otherwise, as d.b. for dried berries, d.h. for dried hips, d.p. for dried pomes and d.w. for dewinged. Seeds are sold without warranty, expressed or implied, as to description and productiveness. Goods should be inspected upon arrival and claims for condition made at once. We cannot consider claims after seeds have been stored or planted. While it is true that plants grown from seed of horticultural varieties often yield superior plant material in comparison to those grown from nondescript seed, we wish to emphasize that seeds of such varieties or hybrids, with few exceptions, cannot be expected to come true to name. They are offered here for the convenience of competent plantsmen, for research and breeding work only. Not listed are items which, in our experience, do not germinate once seeds have been dried (Arbutus, Quercus, other than listed, Sassafras, and others). We are not responsible for loss in viability due to fumigation. Seed is not stratified.
Lots are carefully inspected on arrival and tests made so far as possible. All bulk lots are kept in refrigerated storage. Please note that items marked ** have been collected from our own plants. Nomenclature of this listing is as of second edition of "Standardized Plant Names."
