Ordering Information

Our minimum order is $60

Small orders often require as much handling (or more) as large orders. In order to keep our prices wholesale, we ask for a $60 minimum for each order.

When to Order

We urge you to order early, before the middle of September. Your bulbs will be reserved and then delivered in the fall for planting. We maintain inventory into November (and often into December), but many selections sell out. We do not charge credit cards until just before your bulbs leave our warehouse in the fall.

Delivery Time

The flowerbulb crop for fall planting arrives in the U.S. in mid-September. We begin delivering bulbs during the last week of September.

Planting time for tulips, daffodils, crocuses and other spring-flowering bulbs is late September through December—when soil temperatures drop to about 55 degrees F. We ship to colder areas first, working our way south (and west) as the weather cools.

If you would like us to deliver your bulbs at a particular time, let us know. Toward the end of the checkout process on this website, you will have the option of selecting a delivery week. If you do not select a delivery week, we will deliver your order according to your USDA Zone and the weather in your area.

Shipping Charges

Small package orders are shipped via UPS or FedEx. Pallet orders go by LTL carrier. Shipping charges are listed below. Even after adding shipping charges, you’ll find that our prices are some of the most competitive in the industry. And remember: no traffic to fight, no waiting, no gas money, no parking charges. You get high-quality flowerbulbs delivered to your place of business or your front door.

Sales Tax

Due to widespread changes to state sales tax laws in 2018, Colorblends is required to collect state and local sales taxes.

Upon completing your online order we will calculate your estimated tax based on the current state sales tax rate for the shipping address.

The date your order is shipped, the actual sales tax including any county and municipal rates will be calculated. The charge to your credit card will include this amount, or you will be billed including the actual tax to be collected. Most residential sales will be taxable.

If you are purchasing your bulbs for resale, as is the case with most commercial buyers and landscape contractors, you may file a Tax Exemption Certificate. Purchasing Agents for tax exempt organizations, Municipalities, and State, Federal and Tribal Governments also may file an Exemption certificate.

The Exemption Certificate Form is available on this website in two places:

  1. When Logged in on your account panel under the tab labeled "TAX FORMS"
  2. On the next-to-last page of checkout with "Payment Information" at the bottom; the button labeled "Sales Tax Exemption"

You will need the appropriate tax identification number from your state to complete the form.

Exempt organizations need to file an exemption certificate only once per season. If you have filed a certificate with us, it will be so noted on the site, and on any confirmation emails, pdfs and paperwork associated with your orders. No state sales tax will be collected. You may file an Exemption Certificate at any time up until your order ships. After that we may be unable to claw back tax already collected.

If you need help filling out the form, anyone in our office can help you. Please call us at 1 (888) 847-8637.

We encourage you to create an account with us on this site if you have not already done so.
