Terms and Conditions

Pricing and order payment: Pricing is based on stock on hand and is in U.S. funds; availability and price may change without notice. Volume discounts are built into our pricing structure. Prices do NOT include shipping. Non-credit customers (COD, Prepay, etc.) or customers placing contract growing orders must submit a 25% deposit within 10 days of the order being placed. The balance is due in full before shipping for all non-credit customers. Unpaid orders will not be shipped, and we will not be held liable for the deterioration of your plants while we wait for payment. We accept Visa and Master Card. To cover the cost of credit card acceptance, we are now assessing a 3.0% credit card fee. This fee is not greater than the cost to us of accepting these cards. There are no fees for debit cards, checks, ACH transfers, or cash. Any taxes arising from the purchase, including sales tax or any other local tax, are the responsibility of the Buyer.

Minimum orders: Minimum confirmed order for nursery stock is $250.00. Bare root stock sold in multiples of 50. Orders not meeting the $250 minimum will be charged $50 to cover sub minimum order handling charges.

Orders may be canceled by Fourth Corner Nurseries due to late payments.

Substitutions: If we are unable to supply the size plants that you have requested, we reserve the right to substitute the next available size or seed source without notice, unless you have requested in writing that you do not want substitutions. You will be charged for the size grade shipped. 

Order Changes: Orders may not be changed within a week of the confirmed Ship Date because they will be in process for shipping.
