Happy New Year! We will not be shipping plants in 2022, but hope to resume in 2023. In the meantime, I recommend Seed Savers Exchange and Territorial Seeds for ordering live plants. They both have good quality and a good selection. Thank you for being the best customers that any business could hope for, and happy gardening! -Margie
