Backordered and Out of Stock Items
Farming is a risky business, and sometimes unpredictable things happen. It is possible that a shipment of seeds could be delayed for reasons such as weather, test results, or other uncontrollable setbacks. If an item you want to buy is listed as “backordered” it means it is not currently available, but will be available in the future. (If an item is listed as “out of stock” it means it is not currently available and is not likely to come back into stock until next growing season. Items listed as Temporarily Out of Stock are not ready to ship, but we expect to fill existing orders for these items in the near future, based on the Return to Stock Estimated Date.) You can still place an order for backordered items, and High Mowing will contact you to let you know when they are available to ship. We try to estimate available shipping dates for backordered items whenever possible. If you have more questions about specific backordered items, please call us at (866) 735-4454.
Current List of Backordered Items
Our shipping turnaround time for items that are packed and ready to ship is currently from 1 to 3 days of order placement.
If you have already placed an order with us, it is being processed and you will receive a notification when it ships. Please note, USPS, Fedex and UPS are all experiencing an increase in delivery times due to high volume; please consult your tracking number and allow extra time for your package to arrive.
