WEATHER PERMITTING - Working with Mother Nature

In our business, we work closely with Mother Nature. In the colder months when we stipulate that an item is shipped “weather permitting”, that means temperatures outside our shipping facility in northwestern Connecticut and along the shipping route must be warm enough for tender plants to survive in unheated delivery trucks. Our practice of waiting for windows of milder weather may result in the occasional delay, but our customers tend to appreciate the care we take to make certain their plants arrive in the very best possible condition. Questions? Don’t hesitate to call our customer service staff at 1-800-411-6159.


HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Many Beautiful Blooms

Debbie W. from New Jersey

So pretty, my husbannd commented on how much he liked the plant. I will order it for later delivery next year so it is in prime bloom at Christmas. Would like outside planting directions as well

aphid-infested

Peggy E from Massachusetts

Had to dispose of it. I don't want to have all my other plants infested with aphids as well. WHat a disappointment, because it was a beautiful plant. First time this has happened to me with a WHiteFlowerFarm plant

Growing guide

The Christmas Rose is a hardy, deer-resistant garden plant that is willing to bloom indoors. The large, white flowers will generally open within 3-4 weeks of arrival and can last for two weeks or more.

Light: Provide partial shade or bright indirect light. An east- or a west-facing window is ideal.

Watering: Water when the potting mix is dry to the touch 1 inch below the surface. Avoid overwatering (which will cause the roots to rot and the leaves to yellow) or letting the potting mix dry out completely.

Temperature: Hellebores are adapted to cool temperatures, so place it in the coldest room in the house (a temperature of 55-60 degrees F is best). The cooler the room, the longer you’ll have flowers to enjoy.

Fertilizer: When plants are in active growth (April to September) apply a balanced (20-20-20) houseplant fertilizer monthly, diluted to 1/4-strength. If you transplant your Christmas Rose to the garden, fertilize it once a year in the spring with a balanced (10-10-10) granular fertilizer.

Continuing Care: In all but Gulf Coast areas (southeastern USDA Zones 9 and 10), Christmas Roses can be planted outdoors in spring in a shady location with humus-rich, well-drained soil. Continue to care for your potted plant through the winter and transplant it outside after the danger of frost has passed.
