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. Be sure to read below for a special discount code for Floret readers, plus enter for a chance to win a deluxe tulip bulb collection.
Brent & Becky’s Bulbs
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 which are my all-time favorite books on the subject. For 10% off your bulb order, use the code Floret at checkout. This code will be valid from October 4, 2022 through November 4, 2022.
This company is relatively new to us, but they have come highly recommended by some gardening friends. I love their tagline: “Colorblends is a third-generation bulb company offering top-size flowerbulbs directly to landscape professionals and ambitious residential gardeners at wholesale prices.” They specialize in bulb blends of two or more varieties suitable for planting en masse and offer wholesale pricing as long as you place a $60 minimum order—no special account needed.
The Flower Hat
Our friend Julio at The Flower Hat in Bozeman, Montana offers a nice selection of anemone and ranunculus corms and tulip bulbs each fall in quantities perfect for home gardeners. Be sure to sign up for his newsletter to be the first to know when they become available.
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 and their paper catalog is such a treat.
Leo Berbee Bulb Company
This long-standing company located in Ohio offers a nice collection of all types of bulbs for fall and spring planting. Bulbs are sold in larger quantities and are wholesale only, so you’ll need to have an account to shop with them. If you’re wanting larger quantities, they are a great place to go.
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 in their mail-order shop. Enter to win their bulb giveaway at the bottom of this post.
Sunny Meadows Flower Farm
Sunny Meadows is a cut flower farm located in Ohio. In addition to shipping fresh flowers to florists and designers nationwide, they also offer a nice selection of anemone and ranunculus corms (that they grow on their farm) and tulip bulbs in their online shop each fall.
To celebrate bulb planting season, our friends at Roozengaarde have generously offered to sponsor a bulb giveaway. Each winner will receive a special parrot tulip collection. Each collection contains nine parrot tulip varieties, 15 bulbs of each variety.
To enter to win one of 10 of these special collections, please tell us about your favorite thing you’ve done this fall and what made it meaningful for you.
Winners will be announced at the bottom of this post on October 18. Due to export restrictions, bulbs can only be sent to U.S. addresses.
