It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!
We ship our plants in different forms, depending upon the type of plant and the time of year. The goal is to ship the plants in a form that minimizes transplant shock, so they can adapt quickly to their new home in your garden. Therefore, the plants you receive may range from being fully leafed out and actively growing, to being in a dormant (resting) state, showing few if any signs of life. However, you can be assured that all our plants are ready to spring to life once they're planted. To determine how a plant is shipped, look at the "Ships as" area on the Details tab on the product page.
We fully guarantee all our products but ask that you please give your potted perennial plants and bareroot plants at least 3 weeks after planting to show signs of life. Some perennials may not bloom until their second growing season and may take two or three years to fully mature.
These plants are potted in a planting mix and have established root systems. They may be in a dormant state (like the plants in a winter garden) and in some cases the aboveground portions may have died back so the plant looks lifeless. However, like the plants in your garden, the roots are alive and the tops will soon grow.
Plants shipped in early spring may still be dormant:
Plants shipped a few weeks later may show more top growth:
Plants shipped later in the season may be fully leafed out:
These plants are dug after they go dormant in fall; the soil is then washed from the roots and they're packed in moist wood shavings, shredded paper or peat moss. The plants may look like a bare stick but don't worry — once they're planted they'll grow quickly from the dormant buds and the stored energy in the roots.
Some perennials survive winter by storing their energy in these underground structures. Once they're planted, they'll quickly sprout and grow.
"I purchased several bareroot perennials from American Meadows this spring. I was impressed by the quality of the product I received. Most bareroot plants I order via the Internet were quite small and took quite some time to establish. These were all quite large and in great condition. The ones I planted a couple of weeks ago are doing great." — "mikesmets," CT
To determine if a dormant shrub is healthy, make a small scratch in the bark with your fingernail; if it's green underneath, it's alive and should sprout soon.
