Spring 2017 Shipping Schedule
Spring 2017 Shipping Schedule
And exploring the flowering bulbs and perennials available for spring planting is a wonderful way to combat the winter blues. But the big question is when will the new spring items ship?
As eager as we all are to see spring arrive, your bulbs and plants should not be planted until the last hard frost is past. This ensures that an early thaw does not trick your new plants into a flush of tender growth that can be damaged by a late freeze. So we have scheduled our ship dates to correspond with your climate zone, which you can locate and learn more about here.
Spring 2017 Shipping Schedule:
|Climate Zone||Begins Shipping the Week Of:|
|Zones 10 & 11||February 27th|
|Zone 9||March 6th|
|Zone 8||March 13th|
|Zone 7||March 20th|
|Zone 6||March 27th|
|Zone 5||April 10th|
|Zone 4||April 17th|
|Zone 3||May 1st|
When you place your order, we will schedule the ship date according to this outline, and we will send you an email notifying you of the intended ship date. If this shipping time is convenient for you - there is nothing left for you to do but dream of the perfect placement for your new bulbs and plants! If you intend to start them early indoors, or want to change the ship date, just let us know - either by adding a note when you place your order, or in reply to the scheduling email you will receive. We will be happy to accommodate your needs. Please note, however, that this schedule is designed to ensure the health of your plants both in transit and in your garden. Should you request an earlier ship date, we will make every effort to accommodate you, but we cannot guarantee its safety.
We have a highly sophisticated temperature controlled facility and know how to store bulbs and perennials appropriately so you need not be worried about the quality of the product. They will arrive healthy, happy and ready to grow! When we ship your ord4er, you will receive an email notification with tracking so you will know exactly where it is and when it is due to arrive.
Shipping Times for Amaryllis & Paperwhites
Fresh growing and blooming bulbs indoors is another fantastic way to enjoy spring despite the snow on the ground. We have fragrant paperwhites and beautiful amaryllis available for immediate shipment! These bulbs are shipping daily. If you order either paperwhites or amaryllis, or a combination of both, we will package them against the elements and get them sent right out for you. If you want to wait until your spring items are shipped later for the amaryllis to arrive - a combined order will be shipped according to the schedule above.
Paperwhites Must Ship Immediately
The nature of paperwhites is to grow - NOW. They do not want to wait, they want to grow and bloom and perfume the air of your home, so we will send them immediately. It would be so much easier for our warehouse if you would place your order including paperwhites separate from the order for your spring items. But we understand how much fun it is to just load up your cart with all the beautiful bulbs and plants you want for your garden. Because the paperwhites cannot wait for the spring items to arrive, we will pull them out of combined orders and speed them on their way to you. We will just apply a $5 handling fee to your order.
So - what are you waiting for? Time to imagine the spring garden of your dreams!
