The total cost of your order is calculated automatically, including applicable taxes and shipping. You will be given a choice of shipping method -- Expedited Post or Express Post. If you reside in an urban area in Ontario, Quebec or Manitoba Expedited Post is an economical and safe method of shipping your plants. If you reside outside of these areas we strongly recommend that you select Express Post to ensure that your plants arrive in good condition. Please note: If you live in a remote area and select Expedited Post we can not guarantee your plants will arrive in good condition. If you live in a remote area we strongly recommend you select Express Post

BC, Newfoundland and Labrador, Yukon, Nunavut and NWT - sorry, the only shipping option is Express.


Many customers have us write specific delivery instructions on the box. For example: "LEAVE AT FRONT DOOR" or "LEAVE ON BACK PORCH". This is a great idea. Make sure the parcel is left in a secure spot out of the weather.

Ontario residents have the 'shipping' option of picking up their plants. Picking up your plants will save you 10%.

We accept VISA and Mastercard. Your payment information is 100% secure when sent through the on-line catalogue. If you prefer, you may order on-line and send your credit card number and expiry date by fax or phone. You can also pay by bank tranfer to chris@canningperennials.com or send a cheque. Please note that we can not reserve your plants until we have your payment information on file or have received your bank transfer or cheque. If you are ordering late in the season (May) and plan to pay by cheque, please note that the shipment of your order may be delayed by weeks, as we can not reserve your plants until we have received and processed your payment. If you are placing an order in May, we highly recommend paying via credit card or bank transfer.

We do not accept COD orders. We are also not set up to take orders by phone .
