Some plants require more space in container gardens than others. To accommodate the 5 plants in this collection, we recommend a container at least 16″ in diameter, and at least 12″ deep.


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: California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, Arizona, Arkansas, Alabama.


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.


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.


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.

Disappointing Summer collection

This arrived April 25, 2019 which may be too early a ship date for our zone. I planted inside for a couple of days, then in a warmer sheltered area - but 3 of the plants started to die. Got 2 revived inside. Still - the only plants that thrived were the petunia and the dahlia - but the dahlia budded and never blossomed (only once). I changed locations to get more sun - fertilized- still nothing all summer. I loved the Hummingbird collection - and wanted to try something different . This was a waste of money.

I am sorry to learn this collection did not grow and perform as expected. As all annuals are guaranteed until the fall, I will be contacting you via email regarding compensation.

The plants were healthy when they arrived and simply took off after planting! The collection evolved over the late spring and summer into a simply gorgeous urn of flowers that resembled the photo. Then the deer ate the ipomoea (twice!) and the dahlia simply exploded! With frequent summer storms, we needed to stake the dahlia. As we move into late summer, we're now enjoying a profusion of spectacular pink blooms with just a few petunias and Angelonia peeking out from below. Encore for next year!

Maybe I got a bad batch of plants?

I don't know what happened. After many years of strong plants , what I was sent was small and weak. Dahlias never bloomed. One of the vines died. So did one of the annual larkspurs. Petunias were fine, but took forever to get going. Same for the verbena. Very expensive and very small plants. Had to buy many other plants to fill my containers in.
I will be skipping this one next year.

Can't Even See the Pot!

This has been just a fantastic and fun collection to watch all Summer long. My only criticism, if you can call it that, is that the Dahlia and Ipomoea have taken over with the other plants receding somewhat. Everyone admires these. I'll definitely order two of these again next year.

Afternoon Tea Collection

I had never used this collection before but purchased 3 b/c of the color combination. While they are lovely on my patio, I should have used a smaller diameter container - I think they would have been fuller. Nonetheless, this is another great collection that WFF has put together.

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.
