All our bulbs are "topsize" meaning they're larger, more mature bulbs which produce bigger, more spectacular blooms. All bulbs are inspected and hand-packaged in our Skagit Valley facilities amidst the tulip fields.
Throughout the Summer and Fall, we store our bulbs in climate-controlled environments, caring for them in the best possible manner. We ship your bulbs so that they arrive at the appropriate time for planting in your particular area. For our friends in warmer climates, we offer delayed shipment and pre-cooling of the bulbs, free of charge, giving them the false sense of winter that their climate cannot provide naturally. You may see other bulbs in your local "hardware" store earlier than ours, but be patient because we're still caring for your bulbs - and you're guaranteed to get them in plenty of time for Fall planting in your geographic area. It's worth the wait!
