Receiving your order

-->NOTE: Please update your address book to thelilygarden@aol.com

When your bulbs arrive, please open the package immediately and check your order. It is best to plant the bulbs as soon as possible since they are never fully dormant. 

If spring weather conditions prevent prompt planting, store the bulbs in a cool (but not freezing) place in their original packing material; the refrigerator or garage work well for most people. It is a good idea to check stored bulbs regularly while you look for any “window” in the weather that will permit you to plant them.      

We begin fall shipping in early October, via U.S. Priority Mail (unless another method is requested).   If your area is subject to early winter weather, a little pre-shipment preparation is all your garden will need to allow for fall delivery: dig planting holes while the soil is still workable, and keep the soil you’ve removed where it won’t freeze.  When your bulbs arrive, simply place them in the ground and cover with the unfrozen soil. 

Spring shipments begin in February (or the appropriate time for outdoor planting in your area), and we ship until May 10.  Plant bulbs promptly in a suitable location, and we guarantee our lily bulbs to grow and bloom!  Enjoy your lilies!
