Availability & Special Orders
Availability changes daily. If you are looking for something in particular, please stop by or call us to find out if an item is in stock. Please be aware that no two plants (even the same species or cultivar) are exactly alike and that each plant may vary in size, color and form. If you are curious on the exact size or quality of a particular plant we suggest that you come in person to see and judge for yourself.
Although we only grow a portion of our own nursery stock, we have developed close partnerships with many resourceful growers. The close relationships we have established allow us to consistently provide superior quality product with a greater product mix. One of the larger growers that we partner with, Bower & Branch, has a network of farms that you can order from on-line all year long. To browse the Bower & Branch catalog and to see what is currently available, click here: www.bowerandbranch.com. You can also call our office at 401-885-4112 or stop by during normal business hours. We'll do our best to locate what you need!
The length of time it takes to bring in a special order from the date of request often depends on the season, size, amount, and type of plant material. Other than Bower & Branch plants ordered on-line, we do not accept special orders for plants from other growers before Father's Day due to grower minimums that are in place early in the season. After Father's Day, most special orders typically take no more than a week and a half to arrive. Please let us know by noon on Monday so that we can try our best to have the material you need on site before the weekend; otherwise, it may require an additional week to locate and have the material delivered to our Garden Center. Make sure to give us the quantity, size, and exact species or cultivar you are looking for when you place your order. Please note that Special Orders must be paid for in full at the time the order is placed, and must be picked up within 7 days of arrival at the garden center in order to avoid accruing additional charges.
It may not always be possible to locate the plants you need depending on the species, amount of material, availability from growers, and the time of year. It is particularly difficult to locate larger deciduous balled and burlapped plants after the late winter / early spring season. This is because most deciduous plants must be pre-dug from the ground before bud-break. After bud-break the plant is much more susceptible to transplant shock. In short, as the growing season progresses, it often becomes less likely that we can special order these types of items.
Please see Wildwood Policies for more information and restrictions on special orders.
