Your order so far
To change the quantity for a plant, use the pull-down menu to the left of the plant's name to select the desired number.
To remove a plant, just set the quantity to zero... if only weeding were that simple!
You have already ordered that plant. We have added to the quantity.
Note: At present, we are unable to ship plants to Florida, Hawaii, or anywhere outside the USA.
When you place an order and one or several of the plants that you have ordered are currently unavailable, there are several options. You can select a substitute, postpone shipment until all of the plants are ready, or place a new order including the currently unavailable plant or plants. We will waive the minimum plant total and handling fee, and reduce shipping charges on this new order.
Policies & Shipping info
Our prices are in effect through November 30, 2015. You may order T-shirts, mock T's and gift cards without the plant shipping minimum of $30. The cost of the above items includes shipping and handling.
We take a lot of time to make sure your plants will arrive in excellent condition. Our plants are packed with the utmost care. Their intact roots are placed in plastic bags, then each plant is securely cushioned in a bed of shredded paper.
Minimum order for plants is $30.00.
For refunds under $5.00, a credit memo will be issued.
Unless otherwise requested, we ship UPS to western states and USPS Priority Air to the rest of the USA.
Requests For Shipping Dates:
While we do our best to meet your requested shipping date, plant availability and extreme hot or cold temperatures may affect the exact week your order will be shipped.
Plant orders are packed on Monday and picked up by UPS each Tuesday morning. To ensure your plants arrive in good condition, they must reach their destination by the end of the week, so that they don't spend the weekend in a sweltering warehouse somewhere. Thus, most plant shipments leave our nursery on Tuesdays, especially those traveling cross-country via 3-DAY AIR.
Occasionally, we do ship on Wednesdays to California customers or to customers who have requested 2-DAY AIR.
If you would like your shipment sent a particular week, your order, including payment information, must be placed no later than 2:00 pm the previous Friday.
We cannot make changes to orders any later than noon the Saturday before the order is to be shipped.
We are now shipping year round to most areas in entire USA, weather permitting.
Region 1 (AZ, CA, CO, ID, NV, OR, UT, WA, WY):
UPS Ground; $30–$55 = $10.95
Region 2 (All other states):
USPS Priority Airmail; $30–$70 = $24.95
There is also a handling and packing fee of $4.95 on all plant orders.
More Shipping Information
Your orders will be acknowledged within 10 days with our intended shipping date.
Please submit full payment in the form of personal check, money order, or credit card (Visa-Master Charge), including shipping costs with your order.

Here at Digging Dog, our top priority is that you are delighted with the plants we ship to you. To help guarantee their success, please make sure they are suited for your area. While this may seem like a somewhat daunting task, there are some excellent ways to research the plants in question:
We take extra steps to make certain the transition from our nursery to your garden is as painless as possible for both you and your new plants. We blend our own potting mix, which includes a local sandy loam.
We do not spray herbicides or fungicides and use organic products to control most pests and diseases. All of our plants are either grown outside or in open-air cold frames, save for a few enclosed greenhouses that protect cuttings, seed crops and newly potted plants. This exposure to the natural elements creates a strong and vigorous plant that is ready to dig its roots into your garden and take off!
Please know that we will ship any plant to any location in the continental US except for Florida (see current agricultural restrictions) just about any time of year. Therefore, it is up to you to make sure that the plants you choose are appropriate for your climate zone, as well as when the best time to receive them is. Utilizing the resources above should make responsible plant shopping a cinch and assure the sweet success of a flourishing landscape.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant
Our favorite plant this week. We love Euphorbia ‘Helen Robinson’ because while the rest of the garden looks like winter, this plant looks like spring! From the robbiae side of the family, this choice, stalwart Euphorbia inherits its compact stature, shade tolerance, and handsome, stout rosettes of blunt-tipped, dark green leaves; the characias side contributes the good-sized chartreuse flower heads. In our garden, it acccompanies Anchusa with a carpet of Corydalis ‘Pere David’ skirting beneath.
