Holly

During the Christmas season in the past we have shipped  boxes of holly to almost anywhere in Canada or USA, or you could pick up holly at our farm in Metchosin, BC.   However, this year (2017) we are unable to ship holly, although it may be available for you to pick up from our farm closer to Christmas.   If you want holly, call us and/or drop by the farm or to be sure we will have some fresh picked call 250-516-6921:  $4.00/lb.  We are happy to assure you it is available or save some if there may be doubt and you are coming some distance.  You can ship it through your local post office and we can even offer you a decorated shipping box ($2)  that will hold our usual 1 1/2 pounds; phone or M-F mornings look around for our farm manager, Neville Botha.

Holly is a different Christmas gift with both religious and secular significance that lasts through the holidays.  Send to friends, relatives, customers or clients. It does not grow in cold or warm climates, so it makes for a special gift to many areas.

If you ship the holly, we suggest that you ship it by parcel post  and  request the post office to leave a card telling the recipient to pick-up the package at their local postal outlet …. they can do that …. holly is sensitive to freezing (and overheating) and should not be left outside in cold or very warm conditions.  To most non-freezing locations …  no problem! It is just that so many addresses are now outside group boxes that can be exposed to freezing temperatures.  We suggest you ship by expedited or express post; you can track it to advise you when it is delivered;  …it makes an excellent Christmas gift.
