Fall & Spring Shipping Schedules

Preordering for fall-planted bulbs begins in September. We begin shipping preorders in mid-September according to Hardiness Zones in the sequence in which they were received.

Normally we ship via USPS, UPS or FedEx Ground, and shipping takes about 3-5 business days after they leave our warehouse for you to receive them. We email you a tracking number after your order has been shipped. *Note: It is important that you supply us with a physical street address (please do not supply us with a P.O. Box).

We typically begin accepting preorders for fall planted items in early June. Once our products are received from Holland and our warehouse is reset for the fall shipping season (approximately mid-September), we begin shipping these fall bulbs, starting with the preorders. Once our warehouse has fulfilled all of our preorders, we begin shipping current orders within a 3-5 business day turnaround time. 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. If you need your bulbs by a specific date you must let us know at least 5 business days in advance for standard shipping.

We cannot guarantee the shipment of fall bulbs before September 18 in exception to bearded iris. We do have wedding tulips available for shipping starting in mid-August; please contact us for more information.
