Cook's Garden FAQ

When will my plants arrive?

We ship your plants to arrive at just the right time for planting in your area. In the spring, we make sure your plants ship at a time after any danger of freezing could occur during the shipping process. Click here to visit the shipping information page.

Can I change my order?

Should you need to change or cancel an order, please call our toll-free customer service line, 1-800-457-9703, as soon as possible. Seeds usually go out within one to two days of an order placement, so if you need to cancel or change a seed order, it is best to call back the same day you place that order to do so. Our live plant orders are filled at the nursery according to the shipping time for your USDA growing zone. For live plant orders placed before plant orders begin to ship, contact us immediately.
