Shipping Schedule

NOTE: We’re dedicated to keeping our plants, customers, and employees safe in this current climate of COVID-19, which is momentarily impacting our shipment schedule. Most of our 3-packs of plants will be scheduled to ship in late April. Plug trays are available for immediate shipment. 

As always, we appreciate that you trust Santa Rosa Gardens for your planting needs and appreciate any patience at this time. We look forward to getting you digging in the dirt as soon as possible.


We schedule all plant orders to ship according to your US Hardiness Zone (see chart below for earliest ship dates to your area).

Once past that date, we will schedule your order for immediate shipment. After that date, new orders will be scheduled for the following week. Please be aware that we may require up to 7 days processing before your order will ship. If you have an immediate ship need, please contact us and perhaps we can help.

Shipping Methods & Planting Info

Your plant order will arrive at your door, fresh and ready to plant. We use Fedex to ship our orders. Plants are grown in the Florida panhandle and ship from our Pensacola, FL location. We are NOT able to ship plants into Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii and Canada. 

You will be notified by email when your plants are ready to ship. Plant orders usually arrive within 2-6 days (or less) of leaving our Pensacola, FL greenhouses, depending on your shipping address. We pack our plants to withstand up to 10 days in transit, in the unlikely event of a delay. We cannot guarantee arrival on a specific day.

Open your box right away after receiving it.
