When I order out of the Fall Wholesale Price List, how will my bulbs be packaged?

Your bulbs will be delivered in mesh packaging. Other packaging options are available to wholesale growers and garden centers upon request.

I have a store. Do you have bulbs available in pre-packaged materials?

Yes, we have an extensive line of packaged bulbs designed for your garden center, nursery, or farm market. For additional information and sample packaging, see Garden Centers.

When should I place my order?

To guarantee stock we suggest you order as soon as possible, however, we will accept orders throughout the fall, provided it is not too late to plant bulbs in your area.

How soon will I receive my order?

We can ship your order within several business days. However, we normally ship your order a few weeks before it is time to plant in your area. Generally, in most areas of the country, bulbs should not be planted while the outside temperature stays above 65 degrees. If you require a special shipping date, please specify when you place your order. Check your USDA Hardiness Zone and suggested ship date

What should I do when I receive my order?

If it is still too warm to plant your bulbs, (the outside daytime temperature is 65 degrees or higher) place your bulbs in a well ventilated area. Open your cartons immediately.  To minimize surface mold, store your bulbs in a cool dry place between 60 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Should surface mold occur during shipping, it is harmless, and will not affect the performance of the bulb.  Surface mold is a natural occurrence due to the moisture content of the bulb, combined with temperature changes that take place while your bulbs are in transit.
