There are several ways to order from Pine Knot Farms, you may use the wonderful storefront that permits shopping for hellebores 24 hours a day and paying online using either the PayPal option or the second option, credit cards through PayPal. It has always been our policy to only charge our customers credit cards after we ship their plants. This does not seem to be an choice on PayPal. We almost drove some kind folks nuts when they were setting up the shopping cart for us. We kept requesting a feature that would let us delay payment, but evidently this is unheard of on online shopping.
If you prefer not to use PayPal you may email your order to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, or or telephone us at 434-252-1990, or fax your order to 434-252-0768. Please include with your order your name, shipping and billing address, telephone number and the date you would prefer to have your plants shipped as well as your credit card information including the magic numbers on the back of your card. If you place an order will you please include your telephone number on the shipping form? UPS needs it in case they cannot find your house. We promise we will not harass you with unwanted calls.
Please include the date that you would like your plants shipped with your order. Since our plants bloom at a time when much of the country is under ice and snow some customers want their plants held till later while others want them shipped so they can enjoy the blooms in a cool greenhouse or sunroom. We can't know which kind of customer you are unless you tell us. So please let us know when you would like your plants shipped.
We ship via UPS on Monday and Tuesday. The charge for shipping and handling is 15% of the total plant order, with a minimum charge of $15. We realize that this sounds like a lot for shipping, but we try our best to pack and ship the plants carefully so that your plants arrive safely.
