Questions before you order by mail

Please avoid the frustration of calling and leaving a message on our answering machine. It is not feasible for us to return phone calls from all over the U.S. during our work day. However, we will be glad to answer your questions promptly by email.

We will make every effort to accomodate special requests including the shipping of plants not listed in our mail order section. This will have more to do with our best judgement as to whether the plants can be transported safely and arrive in healthy condition at a particular time of year.

Our packets are easily shipped to any state and make it convenient for you to try Texas natives in your area. Most of our seeds are collected in the Hill Country and Trans Pecos regions of the state. Some are gathered from select populations maintained at the nursery. They will be from the same seed collections that we grow our plants from and availability will vary from year to year depending on the supply.
