WFF always seems to leave a bad taste in my mouth. This spring I ordered 3 Rhododendron PJMs from their website for 75.00. Since I live in Ct. I took a trip to their store and garden in Litchfield only to see the PJM's had been marked down to 10.00 a piece. When I mentioned this to the cashier and asked her if I could cancel my online order to buy these cheaper ones-she pointed to the phone. I called the online customer service and was told sorry I could not cancel this order -nor would they match the sale price.

I have also gone to their bulb sales and after having done the math realizing the price online was actually cheaper than these bulk sales. I called to complain. They issued me a credit for 5 dollars. big deal.

Don't get pulled in by their fancy catalog-they are greatly overpriced for the quality you receive

Run, do not walk, away from this disorganized company!

I hesitated to order from them after reading a number of negative reviews on your site but they had a plant I really, really wanted and could find nowhere else. I took the plunge and ordered. The first inkling of trouble came when my confirmation of shipping e-mail said my plant was going to someone I never heard of in another state! I immediately called and got a polite but befuddled CSR who, after placing me on hold for a long time, said she was sure my plant would show up but to call back later that week (I'd paid for expedited shipping) if it did not. I asked for a tracking number. None could be provided.

Later that week, no plant, so I called back. The CSR I spoke with this time was less than cordial, reading back to me my shipping address huffily after I explained the circumstances, as if I were perhaps too stupid to know what it was. Losing patience myself, I suggested she check the notes on my account. I was placed on hold. Thankfully, the first CSR had entered a log of the call. Terse CSR#2 returned to the phone then said a new plant would be shipped to me.

It was, arriving 3 days later. When I took it out of the box, I was aghast. Most of its leaves were in the bottom of the box, as was the dirt of its container, and its stem was broken as if it had been thrown in the packing container (and maybe stepped on a few times before that). This was not careless handling on the part of the carrier--the outside box was pristine--this was sloppy packing, pure and simple. I planted the poor thing, miracle-gro-ing it and hoping for the best. It made it a day and a half before losing its few remaining leaves and withering to a dried stick.

I've not called to report this disasterous experience to WFF, reluctant to chance another unpleasant CSR encounter. Once burned, twice shy. These folks are OFF MY LIST for any future orders.

My 3 Kong Coleus arrived with the tops broken off. Only a tiny stub was left above the dirt line and it was mushy and black, obviously rotted. The packaging was the best I have ever received and there is no way they were damaged in shipping.

I have contacted the company asking for the charge to be taken off my credit card. I will post the results of that request.

On May 6th, 2005, patischell added the following:

I received an e-mail from their customer service today advising me that they are going to take the charge off my credit card. They had previously given me the choice of replacement plants or a refund.

Their response to my complaint was prompt and handled very professionally. I wish I could change my rating to reflect that, but it has to remain negative due to the condition of the plants I received.

I placed my first order with WFF on 4/6. I called them first to check what the shipping schedule would be on the plant and was told " that will ship immediately". It is now 4/11 and have not received a shipping confirmation so I called to check the status. I was told that it was scheduled to ship sometime this week. When I explained that I was told that this would ship immediately and that it was a gift I was told there was nothing they could do except cancel the order. Sorry, it was just a miscommunication.
So I haven't even received the plant and I am already unhappy with this company.

It is unfortunate, but it is obvious to me that WFF has grown beyond their ability to be a viable resource. They used to be a good resource for both reliable plant stock and cultural information. Somewhere in the past 15 years since I have done business with them they have lost the desire to be a leader in the industry. It used to be they shipped high quality stock and included excellent cultural information in both their catalog and on their website.

This past year I placed an order of about 30 plants, less than half of them even survived!!!! Yes they were quite gracious in sending replacement but even then they were again tiny specimens and again the colors were mislabeled.

I used to overlook some of this because they were a wonderful cultural resource but it seems that they have decided to discontinue sharing that information.

Needless to say, I will use other resources in the future.

I received a bulb naturalizing tool as a gift from a family member a few years ago. The tool was said to work in any soil, even rocky woodlands. The price was about $50. It did Not work in tough red clay. Of course I could manage by jumping on the tool several times, but that isn't too good for your back. My large husband tried, also found the tool hardly as easy to use as advertised. On behalf of WFF I'll say this - high quality workmanship, as advertised. Upon writing back & forth, they offered me a refund, even though I did not purchase the tool. I found this to be kind, but it wasn't an option. The family member who gave me the tool is one who would definately notice me not having it. It was given to me with much love & I did not want to hurt feelings. I would have been happy to have them acknowledge that they might need to do a bit more research, and asked that they forward my comments to the folks who tested the tool. I figured they would want to know what happened when their tool was tested on red clay. They told me basically that I didn't know what I was talking about. I still have the tool. I've noticed in the catalog that they have toned down their claims, but they still claim that the bulb naturalizing tool will work in all types of soil. If you don't have red clay, a notoriously hard soil, that is most likely true. I just don't want this to happen to anyone else I've gone back to using a good trowel...cheaper & easier ...

I have purchased plants from White Flower Farms for several years and generally had a good experience. I exchanged some emails with them last year about the length of time the plants I ordered were in transit. They acknowledged my comment but indicated they were satisfied with their shipping practices. I just received three pepper plants from them. The box was partially crushed. The plants had been upended, causing some of the potting mix to fall out. The roots were exposed, and both roots and potting mix were totally dry. The plants were wilted and bent over. They have been good about replacing/refunding plants that haven't survived in the past, but I'd prefer to get plants in good condition.

I have been a loyal customer of WWF for 7 years and have seen their plants and customer service go progressively downhill over the past 3 years. I have had to have every delphinium replaced or refunded, 2 of the 3 clematis, arum italicum, the list goes on. They now have a new policy that guarantees their plants only for 1 growing season which is ridiculous. In other words, they will not guarantee their perenials past the season in which they are planted, basically saying that all their plants are treated as annuals. PLUS, their prices have skyrocketed and are amongst the highest out there. While they may have a glossy catalog, stay away!!! You're throwing away your money.

Do not order from these people!

They have a slick catalogue, but the quality of their plants was HORRIBLE. I ordered some petasites, darmera, and patrinia this spring at a very HEFTY price, and the plants were TINY. These are all plants that are very aggressive growers, almost invasive, and they should be easy to cultivate.

All the plants had to go into 'intensive care' and I was only able to resuscitate the darmera.

The worst mail-order plants I HAVE EVER RECEIVED from ANYONE!

Last year I purchased the fifty unique daylily mix. The plants were small, which I expected because of the price, but they were also full of an invasive weed, something like artismia, and instead of Fifty Unique I received maybe two or three different varieties. I assumed that when they said it would be 50 unique mix that there would be fifty differnt varieties. What was I thinking. To give WFF credit, they credited my account for one-half of the price of these daylilies. Unfortunately it was too little to late. I informed WFF that I would not order from them again and that I would inform the four persons I had previously referred to them to also not order from them. I have ordered (daylilies) from other companies and have been extremly satisfied by the price and condition of their plants. No so with WFF.

As a long-time customer, I am poorly impressed. The discernable gardener can easily locate other sources with plants that will outperform those from WFF. The same goes for tools and other non-plant productsóbetter prices and quality easily can be gained elsewhere.

And a last note. Many nurseries, with less pretention (or none at all) but with their own unique eccentricities, produce catalogs that are just as interesting, even when not as well or professionally produced, and whose offers live up to promise.

I ordered from this vendor, a quite large order for a first-time buyer and small garden. Considering the bulbs were quite expensive, I thought there would be instructions about either keeping them cold or planting immediately, etc. Well, there were, but the instructions were found totally at the bottom of the shipment after all bulbs had been removed (which according to the instructions I should have not done at that time). Well, they lived anyway, but none of them were what I ordered. In fact, some of the Eastern lilies were Orientals and not single one was what I had ordered.

Negative, in that w.f.f. could WITH MOST ITEMS supply a stronger and or larger plant for the money. One needs to known that most of their stock must be grown on, and only some will be fit for siting directly in thr gardens. It is rare I order stock from them I can get elsewere. With small "Liner"plants, you can get at least half the varieties from other sources,as well grown and typicaly much better priced. I do buy a B#L tuberous Begonia from them occaisionaly, as I find the B&L strains to do well on the show benches.

I have been purchasing plant/bulbs from White Flower Farms for some years now, last shipment in late May 2003.

I went to place my "fall order" and was informed that they no longer ship to Alaska and Hawaii.

There are no regulations (Postal or Agricultural) prohibiting shipment via USPS outside the continental US, just more restrictive packaging.

What bothers me is I usually receive plant materials Fed Ex or UPS and NEVER USPS.

I also noted that their web page has changed. And, why do they "refuse" to ship outside the continental US when I pay the shipment????

Its no longer an inconvenience, its an insult! Why can they continue to do this?

Its too bad, because I liked White Flower Farms.

Their catalog is a wonderfull resource, but recently I have noticed that they have digitally retouched many photos to exaggerate the impact. tsk, tsk. I am very disappointed in them.

I've been ordering from WFF for years, but this is the last time.

I placed a large order for spring, and half arrived smashed (leucothoe) or dead (creeping thyme, azalea and virginia creeper).

Four years ago I bought what I was assured was a tree peony (Rimpo) that is definately a bush peony. At $60.00, it's a lot to pay for a bush.

Sorry WFF, I kept the faith as long as I could.

I must join the ranks of those disappointed in White Flower Farms. Several years ago I loved them, and things seemed to arrive and grow beautifully.

All three failed to survive. I won't be going back.

I did get a five dollar coupon, so I was going to order, although the prices are out the window, there is no mimumum order, so I was thinking with the coupon, I could get one plant at a reasonable price, but each and every item, I searched for was sold out. They really should have enough things in stock. I am very disppointed after waiting two months for my coupon. Plus I could not find any information about how to get on a waiting list, in case any plants are ever back in stock.

I ordered from them two years ago and will not order again. One of the plants I ordered was broken at the root possibly in shipping. I requested a replacement and received no reply. It took a couple of tries before I was told the plant was out of stock and they would send a refund. Well that was fine but they tried to keep the cost of shipping for the plant. I had to send numerous correspondence and finally call to get them to refund the shipping cost for the dead plant. Their catalog is pretty but their customer service is lacking. They are also definitely overpriced and ship small sized plants.

I used to love White Flower Farm when I first began ordering from them around 1987. But since then, and especially over the last two years as their catalogue's focus changed more and more, away from trees, shrubs and perennials and toward annuals and tender plants, I've found less and less that's worth ordering, especially since they are always at least 50% higher in price than other vendors. Some varieties I'd love to get again, since I have moved and had to leave the plants behind in my old garden, are no longer available (Chrysanthemums 'Vampire' and 'Shaman's Vision,' to name a couple.) This year - well, why would I order 3 calibrachoa from WFF when I can get 6 for the same price ($19.95) from Park? And the prices of their pots - whoa, way out of my budget. The shrubs I ordered from them several years ago were the best performers in my garden, but now WFF just has nothing to offer me, and it's a huge disappointment.

I don't recommend them. For Christmas 2001 I ordered for my mother a basket containing preplanted bulbs of various kinds. I was told that the order would go out the next day. It didn't arrive for weeks (well after Christmas), and when I called I was told that they installed a new computer system the day after I ordered. The middle of the Christmas gift-ordering season seems an odd time to do this, but I wouldn't have minded if they had just told me there was going to be a delay, instead of promising something they knew was not going to happen.

When my mother got the order, one of the individual planting pots was too broken to use. I asked for a replacement and that also took weeks. This year when they emailed me their Christmas catalog, I wrote a courteous letter telling them why I wouldn't be ordering, and to their credit they did send me a courteous letter back. No offer of a discount or anything, though.

The catalog intoxicates you with its classy graphical layout featuring healthy plant specimens. I have been disappointed on several occasions with the size of bedding plants and their subsequent performance in the garden over several years. I have a rudbeckia goldsturm from Whiteflower that is still all foliage after two growing seasons. I've vowed to buy perennials from local nurseries from now on. / Last year I purchased tulip bulbs which arrived blemished and dried. I complained at the time and customer service reluctantly granted account credit for only *two* bulbs and noted my concern to be followed up in the spring. In the spring the tulips were wildly disappointing-- dwarfish and mutant-looking with yellowed foliage. I pulled them up almost immediatlely when I saw how horrid they looked. When I followed up with an e-mail to customer service, they replied that everyone had had an atypical winter and therefore bulbs were not performing up to par. Having had long experience with bulbs, and noting the obvious poor condition of the bulbstock the previous autumn, I wasn't satisfied with what to me was a riduculous exuse (how did they know the details of MY winter?) After another complaint, they issued store credit-- a credit I'm not sure I'll claim.

I have dealt quite a bit with WFF. 3 years ago I ordered 6 peony plans, a pastel tulip bulb collection and tons of daffodils. Out of the 6 peonies, last year 4 came out and this year they are down to 3. At the same time I bought couple of peonies from the local "Franks" for maybe $1.50-3.00 for 2-3 roots, and this year those plants look unbelievable. The first season after planting the tulips, I got a great display, the second season maybe 10 out of the 50 bulbs bloomed again and this third season 1 tulip made it. I am quite upset not only because of the money I invested (as other users have mentioned, very pricey), but also all the work planting. I am not sure what is the case with the daffodils, because I ordered so many, but I have a feeling that some didn't make it. Last fall (2001) I ordered their daylilies and daffodils collaboration pack, which with all honesty, were priced well below anything else I was able to find on the net. So far so good, but I will keep you posted. I also ordered early last year a Peter Honey fig, which was meant as a present for my in-laws. I had to plant it in a pot for a couple of months, because it did not looked presentable at all. It was supposed to be winter hardy for my area (zone 7), but I am not sure whether it made it.

HUGELY expensive, and marginally deceptive advertising, in that the catalogue seems to feature 50 year old growth, and what the consumer receives is barely past the seedling stage. Specifically, the "Heather and Heath" collection, which is pictured as these sumptuous mounds, and in reality, after one full year of growth (1 out of the 12 died) are barely 3" in diameter. Will occasionally buy "specialty" items, tulips for example, but the final product is not any better - frequently not as good- as other suppliers when they become available. All show and no go seems to be their business niche.

Bare root plants are fine, if one is expecting the plants in that form and if there is good root growth. Many times I received little more than a pot of soil. There are too many other options with better quality and equal prices.
