Plant Delivery & Installation

Natorp’s delivery and installation services are available Mondays through Fridays.

When will my plants be delivered?

Your delivery date will be scheduled at the time of your plant purchase. The date is typically within two weeks from your purchase date.

How are fees established?

The fees are based on your zip code (minimum of $50). Special deliveries are calculated if outside our typical delivery radius.

The delivery fee is for one plant or an entire delivery truckload to one drop.  For more than one truck delivery, additional fees will be charged.

Where will my plants be delivered?

Most deliveries are dropped off in the driveway.

Larger plants/ Larger trees/evergreens will be placed next to the flag designating planting location of that plant (assuming proper access to the planting site). Sorry, plants will not be placed into pre-dug holes.
Larger trees may be placed lying on the ground to help prevent blow-over and damage to the tree branches.

For more information, visit or call our horticulturalists at (513) 398-4769.
