How to Order

Location

West side of Olympia, Washington state
60 miles south of Seattle, 100 miles north of Portland, Oregon, and five minutes from I-5. Please contact us for directions.

Hours

We are in the office 9:00-5:00 weekdays. We mostly conduct wholesale business, so all visits to the nursery are by appointment only.

Pricing policy

Wholesale pricing is available to businesses, non-profits and agencies. To receive wholesale pricing, you must have a Washington State business license (UBI) or a federal employer identification number (FEIN). A current Reseller Permit is necessary for tax-exempt sales. 

Retail pricing is available to all other customers. Our price lists include the species and sizes we always carry, but we often have small quantities of other species, so please inquire.

Our website includes the species descriptions and species selection guide sections of our catalog. You may also view or print the catalog as a pdf. Prices are not included in the catalog, so please check out our price list as well (see above).

Current availability

Check our currently available inventory or contact us for the latest information. May include projected availability for the upcoming season. Sound Native Plants is USDA Certified Sudden Oak Death Free.

Calculating plant quantities

Visit our plant quantity calculator web page to determine the necessary quantities of plant material needed for your project. The calculator is organized by vegetation type.

Bid requests

If you already have a list of the plants you are looking for, fax or e-mail it to us. Please indicate when you will need the plants and whether substitutions for species or sizes will be considered. You may print out our plant bid request form from a pdf file.

We will provide you with a bid for the items requested. Once you receive our bid, let us know which items you would like to order.

Placing an order

When you decide what you want, fax, e-mail, or call us with your order and we will send you an order confirmation. Once your order is finalized, we will hold the plants for you until the time of pickup/delivery. A restocking fee will be charged for orders cancelled or delayed five days or less in advance of the sale. Please see terms and conditions for more details.

Ordering live stakes and cuttings

We custom collect live stakes and other cuttings for each order and require at least seven days advance notice to harvest the material. The minimum live stake order quantity is 50 stakes. Large orders may require more advance notice and small orders may be done more quickly. See Live stakes and cuttings for more information. Review Terms for live stakes and cuttings before placing an order.

Advance orders

We take orders up to six months in advance of sale without deposit.

Pick ups

We make pick ups available by appointment only to ensure that our nursery crew will be available to load your order. We do this for your benefit, so you do not have to wait around for hours while we finish loading a large delivery truck. If you need directions for your scheduled pick up, please contact us by phone or email.

If you will be traveling more than 35 mph with the plants, please make sure you have a way to protect them from wind damage. A van or covered pick up truck are a good way to go. We can help you calculate how many plants your vehicle will hold.

Shipping

We delivery by truck outside the local Olympia area for orders of $500 or more; local delivery may be available for smaller orders. We charge for deliveries at a rate sufficient to cover our costs, with a $35 minimum. Call us for a shipping quote.

For all deliveries: someone must be on site to receive the plants; the customer is responsible for verifying the species and quantities at the delivery location; signing & dating SNP paperwork equates to accepting the quantity listed. Please contact us for more details. We do not ship plants outside of western Washington and northwest Oregon.
