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.

The Headliner!

The WFF headliner for a reason! A beautiful mix of colors that has been the highlight of my deck the last two summers. This past year I staked the fuchsia with something simple (a wooden kitchen skewer) to give it some strength from the spring winds we get on the water. I found it helped the fuchsia to grow up while everything else filled out perfectly. I only wish I could make room for more of these.

Ken from Rhode Island

This will be my third year buying 2 of this collection. First year perfect. Second year, some plants died quickly. White Flower Farm sent new plants very fast, and they were great. That kind of service is why I will always buy from White Flower Farm. Thank you.,

Spectacular

This collection was the star of the show last year. It is an elegant workhorse in ease, form, color, and abundance. I had them flanking a garden path leading to the forest (morning and some afternoon sun). Visitors and guests raved about their beauty. The complementary colors with hues of green, red and a sprinkling of pink are stunning.

The deer and ground hogs enjoyed them too; so do be careful. I replaced several plants only because of animal friends partaking of their deliciousness. By the end of season it was enormous and perfect for taking coleus cuttings to grow indoors over winter.

Purchased six this year and am so enamored with these specific plants. I have gained so much knowledge and enjoyment from implementing White Flower Farm into my circle of favorite garden suppliers. Thank you for designing this collection!

Magnificent Blooms

We ordered this collection. Unfortunately the fuchsia plant was broken both times. The remaining plants flourished and our friends and family are amazed how lovely our collection is, especially the sweet potato vine.

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

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. Many gardeners purchase special potting mixes, which we offer and are available at most garden supply stores. These mixes are specially designed for container gardening and help ensure growing success. If you happen to have your own compost pile (or other composting system), it’s always helpful to add rich compost to any potting mix. If you don’t currently have a compost pile, consider creating one so you have ready access to compost for all your planting needs.

Planting: Begin by adding potting mix to the container until the container is about ¾ 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 and smaller pot sizes may dry out faster due to less soil volume. In the heat of summer, we recommend thorough watering and protection from too much afternoon sun. You may have to water plants daily, or even twice 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 pinch back any vigorous growers that become too large for their container.

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.
