Flowerbulbs have long been a traditional offering at our nursery. For more than 40 years, we have bought the best sizes and varieties of tulips, daffodils, and other fall-planted bulbs from the same 2 bulb growers from Holland. The first salesman retired, and now the second is in his twentieth year calling on us.
You'll notice fall flowerbulbs on sale at discount stores as early as August, but we never have ours shipped until October, because bulbs don't tolerate warm temperatures long, and may break dormancy. When you buy the best bulbs available, you don't want to waste them. Our spring flowerbulbs are shipped in March, rather than in January for the same reason.
