We also have selected products available for certain customers and markets that may only be available to certain types of customers and / or not offered for sale or available for shipment to all States. You will notice that not all items listed are offered for sale or available for sale to all customers, markets and States. To see the products we have available for your specific needs, we encourage you to click on the link i.e Home Lawn & Gardens or Commercial Growers, etc. which most closely identifies your need or customer type.

When browsing items on our site you will be able to purchase those items through the "Add to Cart" button. If the price shown includes shipping, you will see a Price Includes Shipping message near the item price. If this message is not present, then additional shipping charges will apply to your order.

If the "Add to Cart" button is not shown for an item, it is still available for purchase to certain customers, but may have special restrictions placed on the item by the manufacturer. The item may also require special handling, customer qualifications or other details which we need to discuss and confirm with you prior to purchase.
