Within Ireland, all my deliveries are made by An Post Courier service. Soon, all their vehicles will be electric vehicles and thus, the use of fossil fuels is hugely reduced in the delivery of my orders within Ireland. Packaging, where possible is completely compostable.

Please Note: If you are ordering items from the pre season Spring Flowering Bulbs (Tulips, Daffodils, Alliums and Other Spring Flowering bulbs) along with other items in the store, you will incur a second delivery charge as these will be delivered in a separate delivery in the autumn. This is expected to be during September and October

    All the packaging that I use is, where possible either reused, recycled or recyclable. All the bulbs are supplied to me loose in bulk crates so that there is no plastic wrapping or packaging to be dumped.

     

    Spring Flowering Bulbs are Available to Pre-Order NOW for Delivery commencing September 2022

    Save Money on your Spring Flowering Bulbs by ordering NOW

    I take my lead on delivery. directly from the bulb growers, it varies each year as to when they are ready.

    I wait until the grower says they are good to go, I am not pressured by when the supermarkets and garden centres have their bulbs available.

    If we ship too early the bulbs may not be ready and will then rot.

    If they are planted too early in the season then they won't flower at the right time in spring so please be patient, we have to work with Nature on this.

    That being said, delivery will commence at some point in Septmeber with the bulk of orders being delivered during October

    Spring bulbs vary in cost depending on the time of year. Ordering early in the year means that I can supply them at a better price. These will become more expensive as we get closer to the autumn.

    In short, by pre-ordering spring flowering bulbs,

    • we save money and
    • have a better range to choose from
