This table shows the estimated shipping weeks for destinations to USA states. These dates can change depending on weather and how strong the plants are at that time. For example, a wet spring will have many clouds leading to less sunshine. Thus, the plants may need a bit longer to grow strong enough for transplanting and transit. With the planet heating up, a warm spring may help the plants grow strong enough to ship before the dates in this table. This applies to pick-ups a well as shipping.
