FAQs

All our flowers are field grown, which means we are at the mercy of Mother Nature. We can predict in a general way when our crops are available (see our what’s-in-season chart), and we feel pretty confident at predicting two weeks ahead of time when we will be harvesting certain crops.

No.  Here in Roxbury we sell only what we grow, and do not buy from other growers to fill orders.

During the growing season, we email out availability sheets twice a week (you can sign up on this page) — once a week during the slower season. Each email contains the available cut flowers, numbers of stems per bunch and cost per bunch. Everything is bunched; we don’t sell loose stems. Once you receive the cut flower list and you’ve pulled together an order, email us at sales@thirdbranch.com or call the sales office at 802-485-5150. We will be happy to help you through your order. We do encourage you to order quickly as flowers tend to sell out.

We are happy to reserve something if we feel certain we will have it, but that is usually a two-week lead time. As long as you understand that we are not in control of the weather, we can work with you.

Yes, we do have a small minimum of one box, and we have a range of box sizes.Our smallest box can fit 2-5 bunches (20-50 stems) of Peonies, and our largest can fit up to 30 bunches (300 stems). We will also pack a mixed box of different varieties, and also different crops.

We ship everything through FedEx Priority Overnight. We ship flowers Monday through Thursday only, not on Friday or weekends. Please read our shipping and returns policy.

If you want to come to the farm to pick up your order, you can do that too. Please order and schedule a pick-up time beforehand. We are not a retail operation, so all on-farm pick-ups must be scheduled in advance.

No. We are a cut flower farm selling to wholesale distributors and florists, and are not event planners or designers. We do not sell equipment for floral arranging such as vases, foam or flower food.

Payment is required at the time of order. For new customers, we require a credit card payment for the first season. After the first season as a customer, you are welcome to apply for Net30 terms. We will not ship an order without payment.

While our main crops are late-season hellebore, lilac and peonies, we grow many other beautiful cut flowers and flowering branches. You can view them at Our Flowers.
