Our Grass Plugs are a special order item. Due to this, we package our plugs with special attention and have now included a free shipping option to make it more convenient. Hancock Seed Company thanks you for your business!
SPECIAL NOTICE: Due to the heat of summer, at this time we can ONLY ship plugs to customers within a one day transit. This has been a reccurring problem for us throughout the years. Once temperatures are lower, we will resume normal shipping for other states.
