Ordering Information

Our miniumum 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 order per shipping address.

When To Order

We urge you to order early, before the end 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. Your credit card won't be charged until the bulbs ship in the Fall.

Delivery Time

The flowerbulb crop for Fall planting arrives in the U.S. in mid-September. We begin shipping around the third week of September.

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

If you need us to ship 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 shipping week or allowing us to decide for you.

Shipping Charges

We ship via UPS. Shipping charges are listed below. Even with shipping charges, you'll find that our prices are some of the most competitive in the industry. Remember: No traffic, no waiting, no gas money, no parking charges. You get high-quality flowerbulbs delivered to your doorstep.
