No credits for oversize and subsequent problems will be given for cell tray plants that are held beyond the original Ship Date, as we accept no responsibility for the quality of held plants. Plants that are ready on the original Ship Date will be invoiced to the Customer on that date regardless if delivery has been made or not.
