Multiple Ship Dates

Your credit card will be charged for the full amount of your order at the time your order is submitted, regardless of the shipping time for your items. If your order requires multiple shipping dates, you will never be charged more than once for shipping charges. This allows us to ship your non-seasonal items to you as soon as possible, as well as allocate our seasonal product for your order.

For example, a customer places an order in February consisting of 5 Pounds of Wildflower Mix and 50 Darwin Hybrid Tulip Bulbs. The order would be charged in full upon submission, the seed would be shipped immediately, and the bulbs would be shipped at the optimal time in the autumn based on the customer's USDA growing zone.

Missing/Lost Packages

For all questions regarding the whereabouts of a package once it's on the way, please first review the tracking information to check the status provided by the carrier, then contact the appropriate shipping carrier with additional questions (either USPS or FedEx for larger orders).

Sometimes a tracking number may reflect incorrect information or does not show updates reflecting movement of the package. After seven (7) days, a Missing Mail Search Request can be submitted to the Shipping Carrier by the recipient.

Foreign Destinations

We do not ship any of our products to locations outside of the United States. The myriad of governmental regulations pertaining to shipping horticultural products abroad simply do not permit us to process foreign orders at this time.

Expedited Shipping

Eden Brothers does not offer expedited shipping at this time.

Our Promise

We try our utmost to maintain reliable inventory of all products, and are very proud of our record in doing so. However, as we are a company engaged in what Mother Nature provides, we sometimes experience shortages, delays, and/or crop failures beyond our control. If, for any reason, we are required to backorder any portion of your order, rest assured we will keep you apprised of updated shipping
