Ripeness is all.

Shakespeare, King Lear

Fall. At last. Orion shines. Crickets sing. Leaves glow. Time to ponder, prune, provide. Provide your friends with bowls of figs. Black Jack figs, which appear for all the world to be the model of the earring in the Arcimboldo painting above, embody Fall in every succulent bite.

Our next scheduled ground plant ship date for East Coast locations is Monday October 12, 2015. We ship west of the Rockies most days. Ship dates are determined by travel time so plants do not spend weekends in transit. For those customers with back orders due to the extended heat wave, cool weather is projected soon and we will be contacting you about your orders. We thank you for your patience!

If temperatures en route or at destination are projected to be above 90 F, your plant order may be placed on hold to avoid damage. We ship non-plant items every day. Please email us if you have questions about delivery times. We will contact you if weather precludes safe shipping of tender plants.

Many of our plants are not suitable for year-round growing outdoors in Zones 3-8. Please check your USDA Zone prior to placing an order so you can make the appropriate selection.

New olive varieties include Bella di Cerignola, Cailletier and Luques. These represent some of the most cherished table olives in the world and you'll find out why when you taste them.

In the winsome world of citrus, the Chinotto sour orange has captured our fancy with its myrtle-like leaves, formal growth pattern and prolific fruit display. Trees are well-established, ready to enhance your terrace and life.

And for the splashiest, most extravagant display in the botanical world, check out our new passion vine selections. Plant one and take cover before it overwhelms with rampant growth, gorgeous flowers and decadent fruit.

Michael Michaud's botanical tableware continues to dazzle. Fruits, leaves and bark are transformed into heirloom-quality plates, miniature boxes and serving pieces. His New York foundry is one of the few remaining that continue the ancient art of lost wax casting from natural objects. A new piece, the apple box, is now available and warrants close inspection.
