Once we have closed the first round of orders on May 10th, we will reach out with information regarding payment and order pick up and delivery options. To pay for your order, we will send you an invoice for online payment with a credit or debit card. If you are unable to pay online, you will need to pay by check and mail it to us. All invoices must be paid before we deliver the plants to you.
We hope to have several pick-up locations in Lawrence, Topeka, and Johnson County. Our pick up points and delivery options will be based on where we receive orders from, starting on May 16, the date we had planned for the original sale.
We fully expect to be able to deliver plants; however, we may need to push back delivery to adapt to changing circumstances. We will not bill anyone until we know for certain we can deliver.
