    Stop by and see us, we will have a selection of bulbs, plenty of colorful potted caladiums and tropicals and lucky you, you get to meet the gang (our retail Internet crew is housed in a dungeon and rarely sees the light of day). Online customers and newsletter subscribers get 15% off of anything we have at the booth.
  • We are being asked to send bulbs earlier than the hardiness zones - we can do that if we insulate the package for our customers wayyyy up north or we can just send them if you are close to your shipping date. Beware of planting earlier than the USDA hardiness zones suggest - you can lose them to cold temps. Starting them inside may work better for you. This has been a mild winter and warm spring for many - but Mother Nature doesn't always play by the rules!
