Partial listing of the descriptive nomenclature used in this catalog.

S or SDLG - Seedling - Grown from Seed
 2yr/3yr etc – These plants are in the bed for 2 years or more.
 BR Brnch etc –these mean the plant has branches, not just a stick.  

Tr, trspt Transplant etc – This plant was grown and then moved on spacing to a bed. Heavier plant.

C or Cut or Cutting – C1 for instance means a plant planted as a cutting and left in the bed one year

Plant Guarantee – Plants are guaranteed to be alive when you get them. If you receive plants and they do not survive when you plant them there is no guarantee. We try to make sure that we have done all we can to ship good plants. IF there is a problem we must know within a month of delivery. We must be advised of any claim. Once the plants have been planted and leaf out they are no longer guaranteed. We are a wholesale nursery dealing with wholesale professionals who understand these things.
