You don't have to be in Southern California to give this wonderful gift, in fact, you can be anywhere in the world! Immediate notification will be sent both to you, and to person receiving your gift. If the recipient is local, they may qualify for not only free installation of applicable plants and trees, but also free delivery. If they are out of the area, or in another State, there are many items that we can ship by Fed Ex priority delivery in all 48 lower States. Such items will fit nicely in our boxes measuring up to 60" long by 10" wide by 10" deep (larger than a tube or cylinder, ideal for exotic trees and plants up to 2 years of age, or 6 feet in height).
