Lead Times

Please allow the following growing periods when placing an order. Sutherland Seedlings believes a seedling grown at a slower, steady pace produces a sturdier, healthier seedling. For this reason, orders need to be placed well in advance. A discounted ‘order price’ is offered to customers who confirm orders well in advance.
