It is very sad that this fine company is discontinuing its first class operation. In spite of closing, I received all but one of my varieties, was sent a gift bulb, and received a partial refund. If she ever revives her business, I will be one of her first customers.

Once again I was fortunate enough to order and receive gorgeous lilies from Faraway Flowers. The conditions outside are perfect for planting, the bulbs are large, fresh and beautiful, and expertly shipped. Ramona's communication throughout this transaction is just one more plus. As conditions change, she quickly expands your choices and is generous with substitutions. And I knew exactly when my bulbs were to arrive, so that I could take a day to go around my garden and decided where these beauties are going.
Welcome back, Ramona. Let's do this every year!

Another order of beautiful bulbs from Faraway Flowers. Once again, the bulbs are large, fresh, and gorgeous. I was able to track the shipping so closely that I was home when they arrived.
I'm so happy that Ramona is back!

Another gorgeous order from Faraway Flowers. I don't have a Facebook page, so each year Ramona kindly accommodates me by preparing me a listing of her available bulbs. This year I ordered maratagons, orientals, orienpets, and longiflorum asiatics. I struggle with the wonderful choices, and then simply give in and order to my heart's content. She imports some of her bulbs, so you get selections that are not in most catalogs. And the packing is careful and thorough.
I look forward to her selections every year.

I have been buying bulbs from Faraway Flowers since 2015. Now in my fourth year as a customer, I have a spectacular collection of lilies throughout my garden. Everyone in the Facebook lily world seems to know who “Ramona” is, the provider of huge, beautiful bulbs!

I have made multiple orders with Faraway Flowers over the last couple years. Everything is top notch. From the quality of the bulbs, to her customer service. You can actually talk to her with questions or concerns. Which in today's day and age, has become lost with a lot of other companies.

I've been trying to update my comment, but have been unsuccessful. One final try. LOVE Faraway Flowers from Faraway Places. Great selection without being overwhelming, excellent communication-Ramona is so knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt in answering e-mail. It's a pleasure doing business with her. Bulbs are A+, and she even threw in a gift bulb of the same quality. She is my first choice for Lily bulbs. A very satisfied customer!

I ordered the hard-to-find Martagon lilies from Faraway Flowers this past fall. They were well priced and excellent quality. I just received their 2011 catalog ... guess what I'm doing tonight :)

This being my third shipment from Faraway Flowers, I received it today. All of the lily bulbs were of nice size, packed neatly and descriptions provided on the bag will help me while I plant too. Ramona provides excellent communication throughout the ordering/shipping process and after several orders, I have come to count on her for some of the best service I have gotten anywhere. I would not hesitate ordering from Faraway Flowers, you get unique offerings, excellent service and nice bulbs. Thank you!

Faraway Flowers always exceeds expectations on shipping, quality and diversity of lily varieties. She is an amazing woman at customer service and she goes out of her way to offer the very unique and garden worthy! You can't go wrong with this company. Your garden will only be better for ordering!

Recieved lilies from Ramona last week. Ordered approximately 50 different bulbs. The packaging was excellent. All bulbs were individually packaged and labelled to include a picture of what each lily would look like. Bulbs were large and firm, ready to plant.

Just got my bulbs from Faraway Flowers. They were huge and healthy. Can't wait for the Geisha Girl and Miss Lily OT bulbs to bloom. Ramona features a cherry-picked selection of unusual lilies. Also, she answered my e-mails right away, which was appreciated. Will order from Faraway Flowers again.

I'm giving Faraway Flowers a 5 Star+ rating! Exceptional customer service (actually, better than exceptional, but can't think of another word). Healthy, clean bulbs arrived well packaged and the labeling, complete with a color picture was frosting on the cake. It doesn't get much better....oops, yes it does. She also included a helpful guide to planting.

The lily bulbs I ordered were firm and healthy. Excellent planting instructions were included. Shipping was delayed due to inclement weather but it was only a few days. The company offered a great promotion for Valentines Day-- free bulbs with sweet names, depending on the size of your order. What I really liked was this company making available some of the newest hybrids not otherwise available. Thanks Faraway Flowers.

I ordered a couple orienpet bulbs and an oriental. The orienpets were big(2.5-3.25inches diameter), healthy and firm. The oriental was standard size that I have seen from other companies. The shipment was delayed because of weather but it was communicated that they would ship when things cleared.

I ordered lilies from this company Dec 3. I still do not have flowers. I received one email saying that the order would be delayed. They do not answer numerous emails. I will never order from them again. I think if I were a small co. trying to get a good start, I would at least answer emails.

I am changing this to neutral. I received my bulbs and they are nice. I would have appreciated better communication. Just an answered email would have been fine.

I am going to now ratte this company with a positive. It seems Ramona really was not receiving my emails. I have had very good communication with her the last few days. wishing you luck in making a go of your business.
