How Does It Work?


Select Ted Lare Garden Center for Delivery

Your plants will be delivered to Ted Lare Garden Center, shipping is always free! When you order, your plants will ship only when your plant is ready. Because bloom times, weather and other conditions vary, delivery may take up to 3 to 4 weeks. Ordering during the winter? No problem! Your plants will be cared for until spring and shipped when they are in prime condition for planting in your landscape.


Pick up your Plants

We will contact you when your plants arrive at our garden center. Stop in to pick them up or have us deliver them to you for $75 within a 25 mile radius. Our staff loves to help customers grow plants that will be happy and healthy for years to come and will assist with any questions you have when you come to pick up your plants.


Plant and Enjoy!

When you arrive home with your plants, you’ll find an information label that offers step-by-step planting instructions and a text code for additional care information.[
