Dear Raintree Customer,

Now is a great time to order your plants before stocks run low.
It is a perfect time to start planting in the Western Washington, Western Washington and most of California.
For those of you in the Southern states this is a perfect time to order.  Select Zone Skip and we will send a climate controlled truck your way, which will get your order to you right away and save you on shipping costs too.  
Get your order in and we will watch the weather and send your plants out to you so your plant roots dig in and get an early start.
For those of you in areas of the country where you aren’t ready to plant, Raintree will ship you your plants at the best time for planting in your area.
But remember, even if you aren’t ready to plant, order soon to insure  the best selection before we run out of certain items.
