UPDATED January 22, 2023 -

It's still Winter, and still COLD, so we just wanted to pop in with a shipping update for you guys. We continue to ship out only on Mondays and Tuesdays, in order to avoid your plants being left in a cold holding-warehouse over the weekend. Due to this, and a hectic few days this past week, we are running about a week behind on shipping out. If you haven't received your order, and it was placed over a week ago, please be patient, we are planning to be caught up nest week. Your orders will ship on Monday or Tuesday. Please understand that we only have your plant's well-being in mind; As always- Thank you for your patience, and Thank you for ordering from us!!

Happy New Year!!!

It's December 31st, the last day of 2022!

We are currently shipping out orders on Mondays and Tuesdays. PLEASE ADD A HEAT PACK IF THE WEATHER IS UNDER 40 WHERE YOU LIVE, HERE IN CHICAGO, OR ANYWHERE IN BETWEEN. We insulate all plants before we ship them out, but if the temps are in the 30's or below, your plant may suffer damage in transit. By adding a 72 hour heat pack for $4, you can essentially eliminate that risk. You will still want to bring in the package immediately upon delivery (and not test the heat and insulation) regardless of your environment. Your plant doesn't like the dark box it will be shipped in! 🪴

 

Have the happiest of years this 2023, and make it your best year ever!

It's the last day of November, and it is a COLD one! Just a reminder to ADD A HEAT PACK to your order. November through April are the months that plants are damaged the most from cold weather exposure. We are shipping the majority of our plants out of Chicago, right in the middle of the Cold Midwest. There may be no fear of frost or winter weather where you live, but there is here! So ADD A HEAT PACK to your order PLEASE!

Brrrrr!!! The winter weather has set in here in Chicago. This means that we are shipping plant orders out Mondays, Tuesdays and occasionally Wednesdays (when there are a lot of orders), in an effort to help prevent any delays which may lead to your plants sitting in a cold warehouse over a weekend.

 

When we package our plants for shipping, we insulate and pack each order very carefully, but PLEASE be sure to add a 72 hour heat pack to your order for the most protection from the elements! Heat Packs can be found by searching our shop for "Heat pack" or by clicking here.

  • If you do not add a heat pack to your order, there's a chance your tropical plant will be damaged during transit to you during these cold months.
  • We are not responsible for this damage, nor are we responsible for damages to your plant that are caused by delays in shipping, or by being left out in the elements.
  • If you haven't brought your package in within minutes of it being delivered, there's a good chance that it will be damaged.  

 

If you have ANY concerns with the shipment or safety of your order, or would like to get faster shipping service, please contact us BEFORE or IMMEDIATELY AFTER placing your order. This way we can advise you of the best route to take for your concerns. You may contact us via email at info@vedasplantshop.com or by sending a text message to us at 312-882-8585.

Weather forecast for Chicago

 

 

UPDATED - August 8, 2022 -

 

We are shipping out orders according to our regular schedule (Plants ship out on Mondays & Tuesdays). We are always checking the weather at both our location, and the destination location, and may occasionally hold a shipment if we feel the weather calls for that. We will do everything we can to protect your plant from arriving damaged.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions, and as always, thank you for your business!

Hello Plant Friends!

You may have noticed that it is cold in many places across the country right now. It is VERY cold here in Chicago as well, so we are holding shipments on plants until there is a break in the weather that will give us a slight warm-up. Even packaged well, insulated, and with a 72 hour heat pack, these temperatures can kill a tropical plant fast.

You may continue to order plants from us, as long as you understand that we may not necessarily ship your plant out right away.

Thank you for your patience, while Mother Nature does her thing. We have your plants health and well-being on our mind, and want your experience with us to be a pleasant one!

If you have questions about specific plants during this time, you may email us at info@vedasplantshop.com or send a text message to 312-882-8585, and as always, you can come into the shop Wednesday through Monday, during our regular business hours.
