Tips on Planting Live Roots

Order by 11am on Monday. We dig and ship roots every Tuesday with 1-2 days UPS delivery (out of state extra charges may apply). Please be ready to plant & water your roots A.S.A.P. after receipt of order. Our goal is to ship roots on Tuesdays but from time to time mother nature has her own plans. If your shipment of roots is time critical, please call to make special arrangements. If you also have seeds in your order that you want to be shipped sooner, please advise on comment section of your order. Additional shipping will be charged.

Painted Buntings absolutely love Texas Cupgrass. Notice (above) how they use their feet to hold down the stalk as they strip off the seeds. So fun to seasonally watch them on our farm!
