SHIPPING and HANDLING                         

 Lotus are harvested during winter dormancy and shipped bare root.

Please use the calendar on the Check Out page to select a shipping date between March 15-May 1 that is suitable for your growing area. 

Your order will be shipped as close as possible to your specified shipping date. Specifying a shipping date does NOT guarantee delivery on a certain date. When no date is selected your order will be processed as soon as tubers are available. Lotus roots will be shipped Monday-Wednesday by USPS Priority Mail. You will be notified by email when your order ships.

Unless earlier shipping is requested, orders will be processed beginning in mid-March when chances of freezing have decreased but may be later depending upon your location. If you want to start your lotus inside or in a greenhouse you may request that your order be processed immediately but we will not be responsible for roots damaged by low temperatures if your order is mailed earlier the last freeze date for your location.
