We get asked all of the time about where to buy fall-planted bulbs. Here is a list of some of our favorite mail-order sources in the states.
Hands down my favorite source for bulbs, this family-owned company in Gloucester, Virginia, offers a great selection of fall- and spring-planted bulbs as well as a selection of perennial plants. Brent and Becky wrote a comprehensive book all about daffodils and one about tulips that are my all-time favorite books on the subject.
One of the oldest bulb producers in the country, John Scheepers has a great selection of all types of bulbs, from tulips and narcissus to hard-to-find treasures. They also have great bulb collections grouped by color.
This long-standing, family-run operation is the largest tulip producer in the Skagit Valley with over 1,000 acres in production. During the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, you can visit their beautiful 3-acre display garden. They offer a nice selection of standard and novelty varieties.
White Flower Farm is a family-owned nursery based in northwestern Connecticut. While their prices are a bit higher than those of most sources, they have a great selection of hard-to-find varieties, and their website has beautiful photos.
Planting bulbs in the fall is a gift to your future self, and there’s nothing more wonderful than being greeted by flowers in early spring.
