Delivery
We deliver outdoor plants within a zone around the Chicagoland. For the month of August, we are offering free delivery over $250, otherwise a $50 fee will be applied. As plants are perishable, we take care to deliver them by hand using our own vehicles.
  • Delivery zone includes the North Shore Suburbs North up to Winthrop Harbor and Wauconda; North Side of Chicago to downtown and Southwest to Oak Park. See here for a list of zip codes.
  • For plant material not planted by Chalet, there is a 1-year, 50% merchandise credit guarantee.

  • To add Chalet's Planting Service, standard pricing is 50% of the plants' retail price.  (minimum planting fee is $75)
  • Right now, our normal delivery fee of $50 is waived for orders over $500. 
  • Fees do not include tree or stump removal.
  • Larger orders may require separate labor quote. Plantings carry a 1-year full guarantee. However, there is no guarantee for container or planter plantings as they are difficult to overwinter.
