Ship Date Considerations

Ship dates shown on order acknowledgements reflect the week of and not the actual day the order will ship. Shipments generally arrive the week following the requested ship week. Because of potential transit delays, it is best to request a ship date of 2 weeks in advance of planting date.

Cold Weather & Holidays

All bulbs must be protected from freezing during transit. We will hold orders if freezing weather persists, therefore delays may occur. Due to holidays we will not guarantee departure dates during the following weeks; Week 48 (Thanksgiving), Week 52 (Christmas) and Week 1 (New Year). Most West Coast shipments are unaffected.
