Please note, as of 11/10/12 I have shipped out Shimai plants to those that made requests in July 2012. Requests for Shimai made on or after 8/1/12 will be shipped in April. The weather in Northern Ohio is not conducive for safe shipping or the inexpensive rates with heat packs. If you sent me your request on or after 8/1/12, rest assured that I will be contacting you in the spring, checking if you are still interested in the plant. At that time we will arrange for the transaction. Thank you for your patience.
