All About 'Ready to Ship' Trays

Did life and farming get in the way of pre-ordering some of the plugs you wanted for spring planting? Don't fret if you missed the window to pre-order; Ready to Ship trays will be available on most Fridays.

The orders you place for Farmer Bailey plugs are custom and grown to order, just for you. This means orders are ideally placed far in advance, since crops have lead times of anywhere from six to 13 weeks, or months for large vernalized perennials. 

In addition to your custom orders, Gro 'n Sell also grows extra trays of each crop, as insurance. After all custom orders have shipped for the week, Gro 'n Sell lets us know if any extra trays are on hand. We list these extra trays as Ready to Ship on Fridays. Since we receive the list of extra trays at different times from Gro 'n Sell for listing on the site, there is no set time when Available Now goes live. Ready to Ship are typically listed around midday on Friday (not before Noon ET/ 9am PT). 

We don't know which crops will be listed as Ready to Ship ahead of time, or if a certain week will have any extra trays at all.

    Hello! I’m new to your site. Were there any “Available Now” stock items today? Or do they just go that fast? I checked right at noon ET and continually after and didn’t see anything.

    Thank you!!

    Pro tip for Available Now success: Since Shopify does not offer a “Hold in Cart” feature, choose your most-wanted tray, get it in your cart and check out. After checking out, go back and get your next tray and check out. Email us at with a note to combine shipping.
