PERENNIAL PLANT SHIPMENT TIMING UPDATE [as of April 1, 2021]:
Due to a combination of surging demand and the need to ensure the safety of our employees, we have had to delay shipments of perennial plants to zones 11-5. All previously placed perennial orders for Zones 11-5 will ship by April 20th. Perennial orders for Zones 3-4 are on track to begin shipping on May 3, as promised. Orders are processed in a first ordered - first shipped priority. Brassicas and Annuals, which are more sensitive than Perennials to exact planting times, will ship on schedule within 14 business days of your zone open date. Please allow this time to receive before inquiring on your order status.
- Our team is working 7 days a week to stock all your favorite Burpee varieties- we have plenty of seed and will continuously replenish our inventory.
We have increased our resources and are processing and shipping all seed and general merchandise orders within 72 hours.
Please note that UPS and USPS are experiencing unprecedented volume increases and limited employee availability due to the impacts of Covid-19, so it may take your order a little longer to arrive than usual. We appreciate your patience as they work to deliver all orders.
