Shipping Information Help Center
*SHIPPING UPDATE* We're experiencing slight delays in shipping which are causing some orders to arrive a little later than expected due to weather and Covid related circumstances. Most of our Fall planted bulbs & perennials are shipping now, but, there are some items that will begin shipping mid to late October. Thankfully, there will still be plenty of time to plant all items yet this season! We thank you for your patience and can assure you that we are working diligently to get all of our orders shipped out as soon as possible.

Indoor growing items (such as amaryllis) begin shipping in early November.
If you need your bulbs shipped earlier or later than listed above please contact customer service at 1-800-689-2852. 1-day and 2-day air delivery services are available as well; please contact us for a price quote based on your order and location.
