Q:

Will these grow in Phoenix, Arizona?

sn  asked on  Sep 28, 2012

A:

Hi there! Thanks for your question. You are technically located in a southern hardiness Zone 9. Most of the fall bulbs will do best in zones further north than you are. My best recommendation would be to wait to use the Groupon until we begin accepting orders for spring planted items in early January. These items are much better-suited to your climate and flourish in heat and desert-like conditions. Keep in mind that the Groupon is good until March 2013 so you would have plenty of time to order those spring planted (summer blooming) bulbs.

Q:

Which bulbs do you recommend for Sacramento, CA? and what about Napa, CA? Thanks!

cb w.  asked on  Sep 28, 2012

A:

Hi there! Thanks for your question. Both of those areas are located in hardiness zone 9. Most of the fall planted bulbs (all of the items currently for sale on our website) require a "chilling period" of 8-14 weeks with temperatures consistently below 55 degrees in order for them to grow and bloom correctly which means that they do best when planted in zones north of you. If you do not receive this weather naturally outdoors but still want to grow the fall planted (spring blooming) bulbs in your area, they will need to be artificially chilled by placing them in a refrigerator for the recommended amount of time. If this does not interest you, then we would recommend waiting to use your Groupon until spring when we have our spring planted ( summer blooming) bulbs available in early January which do GREAT in the more southern areas!

Joyce B.  asked on  Sep 28, 2012

A:

Hi Joyce! You are technically located in hardiness zone 8b. Most of the fall planted bulbs (which is what we are currently selling) require a chilling period of at least 8-14 weeks (temperatures consistently below 55 degrees) in order to bloom and grow correctly. If you do not receive this weather naturally outdoors, you will need to artificially provide these conditions by placing the bulbs into a cooler or refrigerator for that period of time. If this does not interest you, my best advice would be to wait to use the Groupon until we begin pre-selling our spring planted bulbs (such as cannas, callas, lilies, begonias, etc.) in early January. These bulbs are much better-suited for your climate. Keep in mind that the Groupon does not expire until March 2013 so you would definitely still have time to use it. Also, please be assured that we send comprehensive planting instructions with all of our products to guide you.

Q:

If I only want jonquils and daffoldils can I order just that? I love in Western Mass. Can I still plant? We can't grow tulips because the animals eat the bulbs. Do they eat hyacinths too?

sally b.  asked on  Sep 28, 2012

A:

Hi Sally! Yes, you most definitely can just order daffodils. Basically anything on this page is available for ordering with the Groupon: http://www.hollandbulbfarms.com/groupon. If you wanted to apply all $50 of your Groupon to just daffodils, that is completely fine and up to you! Hyacinth are extremely animal resistant so those would also be a great choice if rodents/deer tend to be a problem in your garden.

Q:

What would you recommend for Zone 10A (Northern California) that I can leave in the ground? Thanks. PAW

Pauline W.  asked on  Sep 28, 2012

A:

Hi Pauline, Thanks for your question! Most of the fall planted bulbs are suited to grow in zones north of where you are located. If you did want to grow them in your area, you would most likely have to "artificially chill" them every year before planting them in order to get them to bloom and grow correctly. My best advice would be to use your Groupon on our spring planted items when we being pre-selling them in early January. These items do VERY well in warm areas such as yours and are much better suited for your climate as they can be left in the ground year after year. Hope this helps!

Q:

Hello! I am very excited about this deal; however, I have very limited gardening experience. Can you please advise on which products would be suitable for weather in Phoenix, AZ? Also, might any of the desert/heat tolerant bulbs also be perennials? Any information and advice that you can provide would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Q:

Can this deal be used towards $50 on 2 the Iris of Many Colors Collection, paying the difference?

Karen S.  asked on  Sep 27, 2012

A:

Hi Karen, Thanks for your question! This offer is only good on the Value Bag and Jumbo Pack items which are linked to through the Groupon offer at this page: http://www.hollandbulbfarms.com/groupon So therefore, the bearded iris collections would not apply. Hope this helps!

Q:

Are there value packs available for iris this time of year and tulips too. Zip code is 11596 Long Island, New York. Edna F

Edna F.  asked on  Sep 27, 2012

A:

Hi Edna! Thank you for your question. We unfortunately do not sell iris in any kind of value package, with the exception of our Spring Bloomin Value Bag which contains White Excelsior Dutch Iris. We do have quite a few options, however for tulips. You can view all of the Value and Jumbo items which apply to this deal at this link here: http://www.hollandbulbfarms.com/groupon Hope this helps!

Q:

I would like plant daffodils either outside or inside. Do you have daffodil bulbs that will survive in South Florida?

Sharon H.  asked on  Sep 27, 2012

A:

Daffodils do best in zone 3-8. Most parts of South Florida are in a zone 9 or 10. Therefore, you could attempt daffodils in your area but you would need to "artificially chill" them by placing them in the refrigerator for a period of at least 10 weeks prior to planting. Daffodils (as do most fall bulbs) require this chilling period in order to bloom and grow correctly. If this does not interest you, keep in mind that the Groupon is good until March 2013 so you could definitely use it towards spring planted items which are much better suited for your area.
