Do I need to pay sales tax?

Under the New Jersey Sales and Use Tax Act, we are required to collect 6.625% sales tax on all gross sales unless we are presented with a valid Sales Exempt Certificate at the time of purchase. Sales to landscape contractors are not exempt. Tax forms must be presented prior to being invoiced. Once invoiced, we will not refund tax for any reason. Acceptable tax forms include ST-3- Plant material purchased for resale, not installation, ST-13- Plant material purchased for use by Federal, State, or Municipal projects, and ST-7- Plant material purchased to be planted and grown on as nursery stock.


Where do I find pricing for the nursery?

Our Nursery Pricing Guide is available on our site to download. However, we are a wholesale-only nursery, and you must be a contractor or industry professional to access our catalog with a secure password. To obtain a password, please call our Nursery Manager, Brian Bisbee, on his cell phone – 732.492.6715 or email him here.

What is your nursery return policy?

Returns can only be authorized by Pantano staff. Any agreed-upon returns must be made within 24 hrs. Damaged or untarped returns will not be accepted, and no credit will be given.

Will you hold nursery products?

Customers are responsible for tagging their plant material and marking it with the proper date and company information. A 50% deposit is required to hold all material. We do not allow your customer to tag plant material unless they are accompanied by you or a representative from your company. We will hold tagged plant material for up to 10 days. After that period, all items will be returned for purchase. Deposits are non-refundable.
