Order now for Spring, 2021 planting.
IMPORTANT ORDERING NOTE: As has been the experience of many nurseries and seed producers, the Covid stay at home restrictions have resulted in shortages this year. Because B & D Lilies is a grower and not a jobber, who just buys from brokers and re-sells, when our field crop is sold out, it is gone. In “typical” years, our stock of lily bulbs will last until mid / late November. Not so this year. Our fall harvest is virtually sold out at this time so we are now presenting our offerings for Spring 2021 Planting to you early.
What, you might ask, is the difference to be found between and fall and spring planting? In lilies such as Casablanca for example, if planted in the spring, are about 10% shorter and flower about 10 to 14 days later than if planted in October. After the first season, there is no difference. Orders placed now from the new Spring 2021 listing will be shipped in Late March / Early April, according to your weather, on our regular schedule.
Some have already asked “why don't you just dig into your bulbs for spring shipping and harvest them early” and the answer is simple, we are limited to the space we have available on site for processing and shipping. Garden industry experts expect this renewed interest in the garden to extend through Spring of 2021 and “probably beyond”, so we urge you to lock in your favorite lilies early to avoid disappointment when finding them later marked as "Sold Out".
Also Please Note: Credit cards used for Spring 2021 delivery need expiration dates greater than early Feb. 2021 when we will start processing orders through the shipping system. Should we begin selling out on many varieties before February, we will start processing cards early to reserve your choices by date received.
Thank you for the opportunity to help beautify your garden.
