​ Mother Nature takes her time in spring as does each variety of plant. A spring season can be favourable for an early start but that does not mean your plants are.  This is out of our care & control and as a result, we ask that you be patient with your plants, providing your plants the time they require to naturally leaf out. 


We request your patience with all deciduous plants as they all leaf out at a different pace. Scratch a small patch of the bark off a lower branch, if it is green underneath this shows that your plant is still alive! DO NOT dig your plant out of the ground without being certain it is dead or before June 10th. Some shrubs are herbaceous, meaning they die back to the ground every year so they often require more time for their new growth to start emerging. 


  • If in the event you are having issues with your purchase, please contact us as soon as issues arise for assistance. 


We reserve the right to refuse the warranty for: 

• animal or human damage 
• pests & diseases 
• improper care, planting and watering practices 
• unplanted material 
• raised bed & container plantings 
• plant material not planted with the recommended time (10 days) & materials for success 

The main reason zone hardy trees and shrubs fail to survive is human error...improper planting & underwatering. Keep in mind you purchase your plant in good condition. We strive to ensure that all plants while at Alternative Choice Garden Centre are in good health and will continue to prosper given proper planting and care. 


Our staff are happy to assist you, check with them regarding planting, proper maintenance or any other related questions. We will happily provide you with the tools for a successful yard & garden. Ultimately, it’s your proper planting and maintenance of your new trees & shrubs that will make them thrive.
