Pre-Order Tomato and Pepper Plants
Pre-Order and vegetable plant sales have closed for 2022. Our garden shop has also closed for the Spring season but will re-open 9.10.22 for the Fall season. Pre-Order for 2023 will open in January. The ordering site is still online to view the varieties for reference but you will not be able to create an order until pre-order re-opens.
How It Works...
We are excited to offer a user friendly online pre-order option for our tomato, eggplant and pepper plants this year. There are photos and descriptions for the varieties. Pre-orders are limited to tomato, eggplant and pepper plants only and are for pick up only at the farm in Stafford, CT. Planting is weather dependent. Tomatoes, peppers and eggplant like warm soil and air temperature. You may pick up your plants at any time in May but we recommend waiting until later in the month to plant. Our hanging baskets, annuals, herbs, perennials and all other vegetable plants will be available at the garden shop when we open. We are open 9 to 6 daily starting 4.29.23.
All of the pre-order starter plants are in 4" pots and are well established. All varieties (can mix) are $4.50/plant, $4.00/4 or more, $3.75/18 or more. There is a pre-order minimum of 4 plants per order please. The discount will appear in your cart. We keep the price the same for all varieties but certain seeds are more rare and costly. Quantities are limited on some of the rare varieties and they sell out first. We will have thousands of plants in our shop but if you want to be sure to get certain varieties pre-order is a good option. As varieties sell out they will be updated on the site. Pre-Order will close in March.
Our larger patio tomatoes in 10" pots and hanging tomato baskets are available at the shop, but not on pre-order. We will do our best to fulfill orders exactly as ordered but we are growing plants and we occasionally have a crop/germination issue for a variety. We will make substitutions unless you note on your order that you would prefer no substitutions. If there is anything not to your liking at pick up we will either issue a credit or allow you to make a substitution at that time. Orders that remain after 5.30.23 will be put back into inventory. Questions? Rather phone-in or email your order? No problem:-) Contact Kim at 860.729.6310 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
