Call us: We are here for you!
We’ve experienced a dramatic upsurge in flower bulb orders. Our customer service staff is working as hard as they can to help all of our clients. We are very sorry that the phone waiting time is longer than usual. We’d be happy to personally help you pick out alternate selections if you’d like. We're here to take your orders by phone from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday and from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm on Sunday.

It’s easy to place your order on our website. To circumvent the mounting sold-outs, please use our AVAILABILITY LIST to help make your selections. We’ve made every effort to reorder bulbs from our Dutch growers to keep up with demand. We do apologize if any of your favorites have sold out already.  

Shipping Schedule
Thankfully, our state-of-art building and experienced 100+ staff can handle all of your orders in stride. Our day- and night-shift warehouse shipping crews are right on track and will ship your orders out on time for fall planting in your area. The best time to plant is after two weeks of sweater weather when night temperatures have consistently been in the 40s. We can also schedule the week of shipment if you’d like. 

We expect to have the latest harvested varieties in-house by mid-October: Lilies, Eremurus and Peonies.   

Call us at (860) 567-0838 if you have any questions, need help making selections.
