Frequently Asked Questions


Who can buy from us?

Pinelands Nursery is strictly wholesale to the trade only.  This means that we only sell plants to businesses affiliated with horticulture and landscape, schools and universities, or government agencies.  We require proof of your business to create your customer account.
Unfortunately we do not have the resources to answer phone calls, respond to emails, or entertain visits from the general public.  If you are a retail customer, you can still purchase our plants through our customer Pinelands Direct Native Plants, an online retailer of native plants.  If you have questions about retail availability please contact them directly.

When should I place an order?

We recommend placing your order as soon as you know what you are looking for.  Placing orders early helps us plan our production to ensure we will have the plants when you are ready for them.  When we are busy many plants will be available one day and gone the next.  Ordering early reserves your plants until you are ready to receive your order.  There is no fee to hold your plants, however there may be a fee assessed if you change or cancel your order without adequate notice.


How do I build a Quote?

Our online quoting function is exactly the same as if you were shopping online.  Simply add the item you want to your cart, assign each species with the quantity you require, and click send.  We'll respond with a quote within a few hours. Once we've responded to your quote request, you can simply place the order online or ask us to amend your quote.



Do you offer delivery?

We offer a variety of delivery options.  What options are available to you are determined by your order total, product type, and shipping destination.  For smaller orders we can often ship your plants via UPS, orders over $1000 of material within our shipping radius can be shipped with our own fleet of trucks, and we can contract trucking for the largest orders.  You must preschedule your UPS shipping details at least 2 business days in advance. For contract trucking, please allow 3 business days in advance. You can always choose to pick up your order as well.  For more detailed information visit our Shipping Page.

You can always choose to pick up your order.  However, you must preschedule your pick up time at least 2 business days  in advance.  We allow pick ups from 8am-12pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week.  This allows us to have your order ready before you arrive.  If you need assistance loading, just let us know and we are happy to help.  If you do not need assistance feel free to load yourself and head on your way.

How much does shipping cost?

Shipping costs differ on an order by order basis. Costs are determined by shipping destination, transport type, and product type.  We do our best to provide an accurate shipping estimate with your order but will not know your exact shipping cost until your order has shipped.

How long does it take for a seed order to be ready?

We custom mix every seed order, so please allow at least 72 hours for us to package you mix. Seed mixes will be pre-mixed unless otherwise requested. 

How do you sell your seed?

We sell our seed as Pure Live Seed (PLS). PLS is a calculation that describes the percentage of seed that will germinate in a given seed lot. PLS is calculated through multiplying the percent purity by the percent germination plus the percent dormat or hard seed. This calculation certifies that our customers will always receive viable seed. When you order a PLS pound, we multiply one pound by the PLS percentage to ensure that you are getting the exact amount of viable seed you are paying for.

Bulk weight means that when you order a pound of seed - that is what you get. Seed, empty hulls, stems, leaves and weed seed maku up the weight of that pound. Only a percentage of that pound will be live germinating seeds, which is why we prefer to sell our seed in PLS pounds.

Since we are wholesale only and not open to the public, we protect our pricing to protect you.  Te receive pricing on the items you're looking for please submit a quote request and we will get pricing to you within 24 hours.
