Bulbs/Plants not in our printed catalog.
Our catalogs are composed so far in advance of the actual print date that we sometimes need to guess just which lily bulb varieties will be available for sale from year to year and any extras from season to season are listed here.
For Fall shipping, this section is updated as the summer progresses and as we do a visual field inventory for fall delivery bulbs. (Spring is a bit different, extra bulbs not needed in the field, surprises found in the cooler or other "missed" varieties might be added between February and March.)
As true growers who actually produce the bulbs we offer you, we are thus limited to the actual numbers of the bulbs we produce. Unlike others, with a lily here or there in their home garden who then describe themselves as "growers", we do not contact brokers when stock runs low, when we are out, we are out until our next crop. Most varieties are on a three (3) year crop rotation.
