Shipping Dates and Information:
We ship on Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday of each week of the shipping season, with exceptions for holidays.

Please request a shipping date on your order. We will try to meet your chosen date, but your requested shipping date may be delayed if your plants are not mature enough to ship or if weather prohibits shipping. You will be notified by email when your order ships. If your order shipped via the United States Postal Service and you cannot receive packages at your address please check the Post Office daily after you receive your shipping notice. Damage caused by not promptly picking up packages held at the Post Office is not the responsibility of Rosy Dawn Gardens.

Please order at any time, as we hold your plants until your requested ship date or until weather permits shipping. Please consider vacations, etc. when requesting your ship date. If you cannot be home when your plants arrive please arrange for someone to watch for your plants or instruct the mail carrier as to a safe place to place the box until you arrive. If the shipping box is subjected to direct sun or cold temperatures after delivery the plants could be damaged or killed.

Our shipping season begins the first week of April, weather permitting. We reserve the right to use our discretion when deciding if it is safe to ship Coleus, and we consider the weather both at departure and arrival when making this determination. It is absolutely crucial for the survival of cold-sensitive Coleus to wait until the weather is safe. We will delay shipping when weather of any kind (hot, cold, hurricane) could threaten the safety of your plants at any point during the shipping process. Please keep in mind that our greenhouse operation is in Michigan, so no matter how warm it is where you live, in April and sometimes beyond we are often under several inches of snow and experiencing freezing temperatures.

We usually do not ship plants after May 31. Summer heat dictates that we can no longer grow or ship coleus safely beyond that point. After we close for the season, all coleus in the catalog will be listed as out-of-stock until our new online catalog is released and ordering begins on December 1.

Please Order Early! 
Early ordering will be your best bet for receiving every coleus you want and when you want them. Early orders will be held in reserve, but orders placed late in the season will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Certain varieties may sell out and will be removed from the catalog for the season, and later orders may have to be delayed until new stock is mature and ready to ship. We can only accept the amount of orders that we can handle per week, and we will close a ship date when it has filled to capacity.

You may email us to add to your order up to 14 days before we ship your order! Please email us for availability of your add-on plants, as some varieties may be out of stock as the shipping season comes to a close.  

How We Ship Your Order: 
Your plants will be individually labeled, bagged, protected in a cardboard sleeve, and carefully packed in a cardboard shipping box. 
We use the U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail or UPS Ground for shipping all live plants. Orders will be shipped on Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday to assure safe arrival before the next weekend.

Plants will be shipped when weather permits in Michigan, usually beginning in early April through the end of May. 

When Your Plants Arrive: 
Your plants will be carefully packed to assure their arrival in the best possible condition. We guarantee replacement of plants damaged during shipping and up to the point of delivery to the address specified on your order form. Unpack your plants immediately and read the enclosed instructions and follow them closely. Arrival instructions are also on the Coleus Care page of this website. Please notify us immediately of any problems noticed upon arrival.  Please notify us if you have not received your plants within four days of the shipping notice.

Rosy Dawn Gardens is not responsible for any damage to plants after they have arrived at your home in good condition. Damage to your plants or dissatisfaction with your order must be reported within 72 hours of delivery to your home or post office. Rosy Dawn Gardens is not responsible for damage or dissatisfaction reported beyond 72 hours after receipt. Plant death or damage due to circumstances occurring after safe delivery is beyond the control of Rosy Dawn Gardens.

Please Note: Your new coleus have spent their whole life in a greenhouse, so please water your new plants, plant them in quality soil, and keep them in a warm area protected from direct wind and sun until they have hardened off. The plants we sell are sensitive to cold, and should not be planted outdoors until after danger of frost and average overnight lows are at least 60 degrees. When planting in areas that receive a lot of sun or wind, make sure that your coleus have a root system that is well-developed. The coleus we ship are starter plants, and the root-balls they arrive with might not be able to provide the coleus with enough water to survive extreme conditions. Your coleus may need to be potted and grown on until their root system is more developed. Please refer to our Coleus Care page for more detailed instructions.

Please visit our FAQ page, our Coleus Care page, our Customer Service page and our Selection Guide for more information. Write to rosydawngardens@comcast.net if your questions are not answered on our website.
