Announcement    Greenhound Community: *Version française qui suit*
Every plant we sell has a story: from its origin, whether it be from our nursery, a garden, or a local cafe, to their positive impact on our lives. We created this new space to share and propagate plants, stories, and help bring green vibes to the homes of our community. Also, we just love growing and taking care of plants!

The Greenhound Canada Foundation:
Inspired by the amazing therapeutic properties of plants, our goal as a non-profit organization is to support community wellness and overall mental health. All of our profits are donated to creating green spaces, wellness initiatives and fostering a welcoming and connected community.

We want to thank everyone who has supported us so far. Thank you for your encouragement, involvement and for sharing your love for plants. We’ve joined forces with so many inspiring people and we can't wait to find, grow and share more plants. Our team of hard-working volunteers is continuing to grow, so stay tuned for more listings, propagations, and other interesting content related to our initiative. More updates to come!

Shipping Information

Plants are shipped out on Mondays thru Wednesdays to prevent packages from sitting over the weekend in transit. Orders destined for Ontario and Quebec, however, may ship out throughout the week as it takes one day typically. Local delivery in Montreal is available for $15.

As an introductory offer, expedited shipping is free on all orders of $125+. Offer applies to residences within Canada. For all other orders, shipping fees are usually between $13-$25 on an average sized order. Etsy does not calculate correctly for multiple items, and we will refund you all of the overages. Terms of free shipping: we’ll cover up to $25 of the shipping fees per $125 order. Extra costs may apply for multiple large boxes.

To ensure the survival of your plants, we recommend upgrading to faster service (UPS or Purolator Express Next-day service) for only $9 more.

WINTER SHIPPING: All orders will include a 24-hour heat package to keep the inside of the box warm. We will use UPS or Purolator Next-Day shipping when the cost is effective and available. A 72-hour pack and winter thermal lining is also available for longer transit times and is strongly recommended.

**** UNTIL APRIL 1st *** We will not guarantee the survival of plants because of cold weather **

As much as possible, we try to provide the courriers with your phone numbers to ensure they communicate with you throughout the delivery. So if possible, please remember to add your phone number in the message as checkout!

Local pickups in Montreal are available free of charge - just contact us to set up a pickup time at our downtown location: 1800 avenue McGill College.

Nous avons créé ce nouvel espace pour partager et propager des plantes, des histoires et aider à apporter une ambiance verte dans les maisons de notre communauté. De plus, nous adorons faire pousser et prendre soin des plantes!

Informations d'Expédition:

La plupart des plantes seront livrées les lundis a mercredi pour empêcher qu’elles restent en transit durant toute la fin de semaine. Les commandes destinées pour Québec ou Ontario, par contre, peuvent être livrées durant la semaine. La livraison locale est disponible pour 15$.

Pour toutes les autres commandes, les frais d'expédition sont généralement compris entre 13$ et 25$ sur une commande de taille moyenne. Etsy ne calcule pas correctement les frais pour plusieurs articles, alors nous vous rembourserons tous les frais supplémentaires. Conditions de livraison gratuites: nous couvrirons jusqu'à 25$ de frais de livraison par commande de 125$. Des frais supplémentaires peuvent s'appliquer pour plusieurs grandes boîtes. Pour assurer la survie de vos plantes, nous vous recommandons de choisir un service plus rapide (service UPS ou Purolator Express le jour suivant) pour seulement 9$ de plus.

EXPÉDITION D’HIVER: Toutes les commandes comprendront un paquet de chauffage de 24 heures pour garder l'intérieur de la boîte au chaud.

Le plus que possible, nous essayons de fournir vos numéros de téléphone aux livreurs pour nous assurer qu'ils communiquent avec vous durant la livraison. Donc, si possible, n'oubliez pas d'ajouter votre numéro de téléphone dans les commentaires lors du paiement!

About GreenhoundCanada

Sales 2,668
On Etsy since 2020

We want to spread positivity that green spaces bring to our health, environment, and the world.

Greenhound Community:
Every plant here has a story, from its origin, the experience we had in the nursery, garden, or cafe where we found it, to how they positively impacted our lives. We created this space to share and propagate plants, stories, and green vibes with other people in their homes, and support our local fundraising goals.

Our Greenhound Canada Foundation Goal:
Plants have brought us amazing therapeutic support through mental health struggles in the past. Along with other efforts, all profits here will be donated to local community initiatives that support green spaces for well-being and mental health support. We will bring you updates throughout this journey.

Frequently asked questions
If I order plants, how will my items be packaged?

We are relatively new, we have carefully chosen to use new sustainably-produced corrugated cardboard boxes and packing paper made in Canada. We are mindful of the impact of packaging materials on the environment boxes, so we will also use clean used boxes as they become available. Plants are wrapped in a folded kraft paper. Delicate plants will be protected with excelsio, raffia filling, or bubble wrap.

When do you ship?

We aim to ship plants based on the scheduled standard. Orders may ship Monday to Thursdays. For transit times of 4 days or longer, we will aim to send these out on Mondays or Thursday only, to prevent plants from sitting over the weekend in the post station unnecessarily.

All orders are shipped by Canada Post Expedited Parcel, or Xpresspost, by default. Etsy indicates flat parcel rate which is a slower transit time. Most orders arrive between 1-7 days depending on your location.

If there’s anything you'd like to ask or request you before preparing your order, don't hesitate just message us (shipping requests, combined shipping, gifts requests and notes, local deliveries).

Do you have a local pickup and/or delivery?

Local pickups in Montreal are free of charge!

Use coupon code FREEPICKUP at checkout to indicate no delivery charges. Then contact us to schedule a pickup time at our downtown location, 1800 avenue McGill College (next to Leaves House Cafe)!

Pour les clients locaux à Montréal, vous pouvez économiser sur les frais de livraison et récupérer vos commandes dans notre magasin du centre-ville au 1800 avenue McGill College (pres de Cafe Leaves House)! Utilisez le code coupon «FREEPICKUP» lors du paiement.

Local delivery is also available for $12 in Greater Montreal. Use local LIVLOCALE to designate this option. We'll refund the shipping fee overages.

Can I reduce the cost of shipping on multiple items?

If you purchase multiple items, we will calculate a reduced shipping cost for one combined shipment which is much less estimated by Etsy at checkout (usually one box). You will receive a refund of the overage within one business day.

What are you raising funds and how does my purchase help?

When you make an order with us, you are helping our initiatives to support and provide public community garden green space initiatives across Canadian cities and towns. We are also assembling a team that will run our open-to-community garden and greenhouse that will supply some of our plants. The garden will be open to the public to access, enjoy the plant collection, and participate in gardening and mindfulness classes.

I placed an order, but I'd like to add another item and combine shipping.

No problem, if it hasn't already shipped, you can use coupon code COMBINESHIP and check out the items you want to add. No shipping charges will appear and we will send them out with your other order(s). You can also make the additional order with all the items and we will refund the original order.

Can we select UPS, FedEx or Purolator delivery?

Yep! It's not integrated into the checkout system, but you can add the item which upgrades your shipping cost by about $9. It usually covers the cost. Just sent me a note or give us a call if you want to clarify for larger orders. We can provide the estimated price and delivery timeframes for you. We receive up to 90% discounted rates for FedEx, UPS, Purolator.

What happens if they don't show up in a good state?

No worries, we will always do our best to make it right. Let us know how they are looking because we're here to help. Our focus is spreading happiness!

If the plants arrive not in good condition, let us know and we will help you with an exchange or replacement. If we don't have stock, we may send you a refund. If the plants were damaged during transport, please help us by sending photos of the plant and/or box. It will make it more possible for us to issue a refund.

We are not able to guarantee the health of the plants, particularly if there are significant delays or transit times more than 3 days. We'll do our best, but please expect that your plants will be affected by being placed in a dark box and experience movement.
