We are not limited to the sizes and varieties in our catalog. If we don't have something you want, we will gladly search for it and quote you a price. Our customers often tag plants in the field to be dug at a later date. This requires a 30% nonrefundable deposit. With proper care, plants, both potted and B&B (balled and burlaped) can be planted anytime during the growing season.
Our delivery prices depend on distance, number of items, and coordination with other deliveries. Delivery will be curbside unless other arrangements are made. We can also bring our tractor to set large trees in holes the customer has dug.
NOTE: Delivery area is within a day's travel of Poland

We define our list of natives as any species that were found in North America prior to the import of European varieties. We have noted, in this catalog, when a plant is truly a Maine native. We intend to grow more Maine natives and encourage our customers to try these proven varieties.
