Shipping and Handling

Standard Processing and Shipping Timelines

When can I expect my order?

Our team prunes, pots, and packs every order – meaning lots of care goes into every step. While we know speed is a priority, shipping live plants takes a bit longer!

If you select standard shipping, please expect 5–10 business days from the time you place your order until the time it arrives. Orders generally ship within 1–2 business days, but there are times it may take longer to ensure your plants arrive healthy. If you select express shipping, please expect 2–3 business days from the time you place your order until the time it arrives.

Once your order is out the door, you'll receive tracking information so you can keep an eye out for it every step of the way.


How can I estimate when my order will ship?

Two questions help estimate when your plants will be on their way:

What day of the week did you place your order?
If you place your order late in the week or over a weekend and select standard shipping, it will likely process and ship the following Monday – Wednesday. Why? We try not to ship toward the end of the week to avoid plants getting stuck in shipping facilities on Saturday and Sunday.

Where does the recipient live?

Returns and Replacements

What is your return policy?

Every plant is fragile and the shipping process is not always kind (or easy). Most of the time we get it right, but sometimes we don't. When that happens, we fix it — be it a damaged plant or pot due to shipping carrier mishandling — with the ultimate objective of making our customers happy. If you're not happy with your recent purchase, please email us at info@thesill.com and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. In the unlikely event a plant is received dead on arrival, it will always be replaced.
