Shipping

Shipping
Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: Arizona, Arkansas, Alabama.

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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the 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.

Beautiful!

I was a little skeptical if this would look as beautiful at the picture, but it definitely does! The plants all arrived well packaged and in great shape. They are quite small but grow quickly. Make sure you have the appropriate size container when these arrive. There’s one plant that there’s 2 of. I accidentally broke one of them and it died early on. I was surprised how well the rest filled in and how great this looks. Well worth the money and I’ll be buying another next year for sure

Absolutely Perfect

I ordered the Hummingbird Annual Collection last year for my west facing porch which gives us mixed sun and shade. It arrived in mid-May during a rare heat wave and due to a three day weekend was held on the delivery truck longer than usual. Needless to say some of the plants were pretty sad and wilted. However, the plants soon perked up and grew beautifully all summer long. All the plants were robust, full of bloom, and spilled beautifully over the edge of their huge pot. The begonias were just stunning as was the fuchsia. The sweet potato vine was very rambunctious but I trimmed it back several times which kept it under control and helped it to bush out. I rooted the sweet potato cuttings and planted several of them in a small garden adjacent to the porch. We cannot praise this collection highly enough! In fact I have already ordered another Hummingbird Annual Collection for this summer and we are eager to enjoy it again!

Still going strong 10/11

I thought I could do this by myself but would try just once with an container choice from White Flower and I am so glad I did! There's just no way I could get the balance and color and texture, oh my. What a beauty.

Excellent Long-season choice

I split one order into two containers because I had smaller 12" containers, so planted 3 plants in each framing my entry (since 2 begonias, the repeated plant tied the two together without being matchy-matchy). Required daily water this season given the hot days, grew full spilling over the pots beautifully. Even my husband said they were the best performing combination we ever had. Picking out next year's pre-planned container now. Always been satisfied with WFF plant quality for years, luckily live close enough to visit too.

Gorgeous Display

Arrived in very condition and has grown beautifully on my patio. The hummingbirds love it and so do visitors.
I plan on purchasing again next year.

Choosing a pot and growing mix: In addition to our Annual Collections, most of the plants we offer can be grown, either singly or in combination, in containers. Any container with a drainage hole in the bottom will suit. The growing medium in containers must drain much more quickly than garden soil.

Planting: Begin by adding potting mix to the container until the container is about 3/4 full. (If you use a dry, peat-moss-based mix, you must first moisten it by placing it in a plastic tub or a wheelbarrow and slowly adding water until the mix is moist but not soggy.) Next, set the plants on the mix one by one, spacing them much more closely than you would when planting them in the ground. Put the tallest plants in the center of the container. Surround them with the shorter, mounding plants, and put trailing plants along the edge. When you are pleased with your arrangement, add potting mix to bring the level to within an inch or so of the container's rim and firm lightly. Finally, water thoroughly.

Container care: Plants in containers need special care. They dry out more quickly than plants in the ground; in the heat of summer, you may have to water them daily. Because of the need for frequent watering, nutrients soon wash out the bottom of the pot. To keep annuals growing and flowering, we suggest you water with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer mixed as directed, every other week in summer. (Other plants—bulbs, perennials, and shrubs—need less fertilizer; a half-strength solution applied once a month through August is enough.) Our Vermont Compost Plus is a mix of 10 ingredients, organic and mineral, that will revitalize last year's potting soil and slowly release nutrients throughout the season. All-Bloom Fertilizer is a 15-30-15 product that can be diluted in water and applied regularly during the growing season. Finally, to look their best, all plants in containers need regular grooming. Remove spent flowers regularly and prune vigorous growers to keep them in check.

Preparing for winter: In climates where winter temperatures drop well below freezing, containers should generally be dismantled in fall. Bring tender plants indoors or toss them on the compost heap; plant hardy bulbs, perennials, and shrubs in the ground. Most containers should be emptied of potting mix and stored under cover; only plastic and fiberglass pots can be left out over winter without cracking. In mild-winter climates—say, Zone 8 (10°F) and warmer—hardy plants can generally be left outdoors in containers with little risk either to the plants or to the pots.
