Alerti Peonies, Golden Dawn Daffodils, Heirloom Freesias
This is the time to order Alerti peonies, Golden Dawn daffodils, Heriloom freesias, Watsonia, Tulips, and any other flowering bulbs.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to request information on other quantities or cultural information. On my blog index you can find a great deal of information on varous bulb varieties, but I can offer more detail.
Peonies are planted when they are received or anytime until spring if they are kept in a cold, dark place until planting. I keep mine unplanted peonies is a walk in refrigerator with other bulbs, wine and other packaged items, but I do not included fresh fruit or vegetables and especially NOT APPELES which give off ethelyene gas and inhibit the blooms of tulips. If tulips are refrigerated (not kept in the freezer, by the way), they must not be kept with off gassing apples. If you order tuips from me, I can ship them to you ready to plant after refrigeration in my facility.
Golden Dawn Daffodils are very special in that the return year after year, take summer water (and in fact love summer water) and increase each year. They have the added attraction of being fragrant as well.

Tulips should be ordered soon so that they can get 8-12 weeks of refrigeration before planting. I have a large walk in refrigerator and keep them at 45 defrees until shipping.

Daffodils do not need chilling and will be delivered in the fall. If you wait to plant until the rains begin, that is the most effortless way and best for the daffodils. Varieties like Golden Dawn will bloom earlier if planted earlier. This is truly a wonderful hybrid daffodil.
