Regrettably, we need to let you know that we have had to cancel our 2022 bulb order. We spoke with the company’s shipping director yesterday and she informed us that the containers were still on the ship and had not yet even been placed on the trucks that would take them to distribution centers. When asked if there was any chance our order would reach us by the end of this week, she said ‘No’. With so few days left to sell our large order of bulbs before we close for the season at 5:00 pm on Sunday, October 30th, it no longer makes sense to bring them in.
We know and deeply appreciate that many of you have been patiently waiting to buy your bulbs from us, and it is painful for us to have nothing to offer you after all this waiting. It’s also a sizable financial loss for our nursery; in autumn, we depend on bulb sales and holiday market sales to augment our dwindling income from plants.
This situation originated with human error on the bulb company’s part and was exacerbated by labor shortages and extreme weather events. We will do everything in our power to assure that this never happens again, including fighting to minimize the Climate Crisis.
If you wish to mail-order bulbs, we recommend Brent & Becky’s Bulbs for quality and selection. There is still plenty of time to plant bulbs; in fact, it’s still a little early here in the Boulder Valley, and we would start planting in about a week, with November being the best time.
