I hope everyone is keep safe, social distancing, and staying home. Here in Michigan, we have been hard hit by the pandemic. We are praying for everyone especially our front line workers such as delivery people, grocery store workers, mail carriers, food service and delivery people, truckers and other essential workers especially medical personnel.
Here are the Lavender Rose Farms, many things have changes, yet have remained the same in many aspects. My husband and I both work from home. So this has not changed. It's been too early to plant here in Michigan, but we have started to do some clean up and prep. Some replacement plants for our lavender field should be arriving next month. We have some perennials also arriving. We are preparing our raised beds and doing spring clean up. We just had a late snow yesterday!. Luckily not much of an accumulation occurred.
We are still open on both our online web-store here at www.lavenderrosefarms.com and also on our Etsy shop. The main issue we are experiencing is delays in shipping.
Please be aware shipping carriers such as USPS, UPS, and FedEx are experiencing delays due to the volume of packages they are receiving with everyone ordering online now. Please plan extra time when ordering to allow for shipping carrier delays. It best to allow at least one week for shipping in addition to processing time for now.
I do apologize but unfortunately shipping delays are beyond our control. I will send a tracking number to you can see where in the process your item is.
Because of shipping delays, we are experiencing some issues getting materials and supplies. We grow our own flowers/lavender here at Lavender Rose Farms. However, there are flowers in our designs that either don't grow in our growing zone or that I have not gotten around to planting here yet. For these items, I work with other farms and flower wholesalers. So I am experiencing delays in getting some products and flowers.
Please be patient and allow extra time for your order. I will do my best to keep you updated of any delays and I am tracking everything so please be assured your order has NOT been forgotten. Some orders are arriving on time and other are not depending on what is ordered and on the carriers.
Due to Covid-19, we have also stopped local pick up orders. We are supporting the Stay-at-Home/Stay-Safe Orders. So we cannot have customers to our farm/home.
Please remember order SOON for summer weddings! The more time you give me the better I can serve you especially with Covid-19 delays. My suggestion is try to order 8-12 weeks minimum in advance to ensure your order. For larger orders, please remember you may place a deposit and Save-the-Date order 12 weeks in advance. This helps you to split your payments into two payments - an initial deposit followed by a final payment a month before shipping.
