Delivery Information

Timing of Deliveries

The flowerbulb crop for fall planting arrives in the United States 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℉. 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. During 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.

Prechilled Bulbs

Tulips and many other spring-flowering bulbs that are to be planted in southern and western Zones 7b–10, where soil temperatures do not cool down sufficiently in winter, should be prechilled in a refrigerator (not a freezer) for 6–12 weeks before planting. If you have a spare refrigerator, we suggest you request delivery of your bulbs in mid-October.

If you are placing a larger order (e.g., one that includes 300 tulips or more), Colorblends may be able to prechill your bulbs for you. We charge a flat fee of $30 per order for this service. The delivery time will depend on your location and your planting schedule.

Please see our Prechilling page for more information about prechilling.
