Annies only ships 4" pots, the boxes for shipping are very size specific with compartments for each pot(and a very cool design), the site says this is a one time per year only item available in gallon pots etc. And is NOT currently available.... you really need a good friend in the area to get one for you When They Become Available...

Nursery owners are entitled to have their own view of how they want to conduct business. If this nursery has decided not to ship, it probably isn't just that they haven't thought of it! Respect their boundaries - don't beg. The one "in" I might suggest is that if you have something they really want you can offer that. I never thought of myself as a mean person, but I was a little surprised by the people who wrote after I closed the business (people who had either never been customers or, if they had, had been very - um - thrifty ones) and begged me to find them just one more of this and that. Favors are something you ask of friends...don't expect businesses to do them for you if you're a stranger.
