USPS to Raise Rates Soon: Order $35 or more and get free shipping with tracking

Just a friendly reminder that the United States Postal Service (USPS) will be raising their rates yet again and the new rates will go into effect on January 9th

All that to say, if you want to beat increased shipping charges on any order, be sure to order before January 8th! And as always, we cover the cost of shipping on all seed orders over $35 at Grow Your Health Gardening Seed Co.

• First Class Package Service will increase by $.06–$.07 USD in the 1–4oz weights.

• Domestic Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express rates will increase by an average of 3.1%.

• First Class Mail Flats and Letters will remain unchanged in 2022. 

You can learn more on the USPS website.

We mail our packages with tracking keeping mindful of protecting seeds and watching temperatures that the seed experiences during transit. The cold winter months are an ideal time to purchase your seed as heat from shipping containers can damage or in extreme heat situations actually kill viable good seed.

And remember, we are a small business that simply focuses on growing the best seed money can buy. We are not a shipping company. Know that we will make every effort to make sure your seed investment gets to you safely, but once we mail your seed order, USPS takes the "baton" so to speak, and is responsible for ensuring that the service you paid for will be carried out.

So, if you don't plan on spending over $35, you will want to get that seed order in before Saturday, January 8. We will ship all current seed orders taken in over the New Year Holiday on Monday, January 3, 2022 when USPS receives mail again.

Looking forward along with you, {{ data.customer.first_name|default:'my friend' }} , to the growing season ahead! Happy New Year!

PS: Did you know that researchers have found that sending a handwritten note boosts positive emotions and well-being of both the letter-writing "expresser" and the recipient when they receive a hand written note or card in the mail? Consider pausing for 15 minutes today to send a quick note through the mail to someone you love to remind them you are thinking about them and care. It's good for your health as well! :)
