Ordered online 2 amaryllis plants for gifts, and wrote in the instruction box that they should be held for Christmas delivery. I was very specific. Instead the plants were sent out Dec. 1, way too early as far as I am concerned. I am actually quite embarrassed.
I was told when I called about it that "corporate says" as soon as the orders come in "let them go after Thanksgiving." If you think ordering from a local CT business means you'll avoid "corporate" and be getting special attention, think again. Last year my online gifts were sent out early too, and in addition, one of the amaryllis bulb gifts was dead upon arrival. My gift recipient did call them and get a replacement sent out, but still. White Flower Farm will not receive my business again.
