Ordered two orange dream maples earlier this month. Lucile was great in answering all my questions. She even shared actual pictures. Plants arrived healthy and great size and doing great in the ground now. They made journey from Oregon to South Carolina in great shape. Already displaying Fall covers.
Lucile Whitman is a class act!!! I found a species of witch hazel on the Whitman Farms site that I was unable to find anywhere else. Lucile worked with me by phone and sent photos of the plants I wanted plus several other varieties of her field grown plants then I placed my order. When I set out to plant, I realized that 4 of the 6 witch hazel I ordered were not the exact species I was after due solely to an error on my part, not Lucile’s! I had misread the website and failed to communicate clearly what I was looking for in addition to Hamamelis vernalis. Lucile graciously offered to allow me to exchange the four plants and I sent back the 4 I had ordered in error. The replacements just arrived and they are simply gorgeous, robust and well packed just as the first order was. Lucile handled the whole situation with grace and professionalism. I am so grateful to now have exactly what I wanted and I am grateful to have found Whitman Farms. From now on I will always check Lucile’s inventory first. A plant from Whitman Farms is worth every penny of what it costs to ship to Georgia!
