Ornamental & Landscaping Plants at Just Fruits & Exotics
Although Just Fruits and Exotics has been providing ornamental and landscaping plants to customers at our nursery since we added “Exotics” to our name in the 1990’s, we never had them available to our customers online.
However, September of 2018, with the launch of our updated Just Fruits and Exotics website, we added many of our ornamental and landscaping plants to our online store for our customers nationwide.Â Â We encourage you to â€œFruitscapeâ€ your yards, mixing edibles and ornamentals to make your own edible garden.
Weâ€™re so sorryâ€¦Â but due to agricultural restrictions we cannot ship any plants outside of the United States, or to the states ofÂ California, Hawaii and Alaska. Also,Â citrus trees cannot be shipped outside of the state of Florida.
Here are some important things to know about your shipments
Unpacking Your Plants Guide:Â Â Prior to receiving our plants, please click this link to read our Unpacking Your Plants GuideÂ to get to know the steps to keeping your plant healthy after receiving it.
We do NOT ship bare root: Â Our trees are shipped in the same exact containers they are grown in, for the most healthy transition. The plants are watered well before they are packed and wrapped in a shipping bag to ensure they stay moist during transit.Â It’s as if you came and picked them up right from our nursery yourself!
Why do we not offer free shipping? At Just Fruits, we price all of our plants online exactly as we do in the nursery. Therefore, the shipping cost is simply what it costs for us to get your order from the nursery to you. Many competitors may increase the plants’ prices in order to hide shipping costs… we do not do that. We want our customers to see exactly what the plant costs are, separate from what the shipping costs are. That way if you decided to come visit the nursery to pick up your plants instead, you would know how much you save in shipping.
Weather Watching:Â Â We now ship all year round! However, we do watch for extreme weather. If there is extremely cold or hot weather expected around your shipment date and on your path of shipment, we will contact you and notify you that we plan to hold the shipment for the next possible shipping date with better conditions. If you ask us to still ship it, through the conditions, we will not be responsible for any damage caused to the plant & UPS will not refund any claims. We love our plants, and do not want to see them die, so we would rather wait until itâ€™s the right time to ship it, than risk losing a plant in transit.
