    I was wondering how long it takes for them to ship out.....will I still be able to plant them when they get here ? (zone 8) Tulips and Mt. flowers....

    I haven't gotten mine in zone 6 (5b?) I would imagine the colder areas would get them first.....

    Haven't got mine either in Zone 7. But I don't usually get bulbs I order by mail till mid Oct or so. Tulips are certainly better being planted later than that anyway. First person to get their's please post!

    I ordered some Alliums on the last day of the "free" offer...of course, more
    than $25 worth. I asked when they'd be shipped, and the woman
    told me they would be sent out at the end of October! Ann

    I'm in Zone 5b and I still haven't received my Breck's bulbs.

    I just got off the phone with them and I am so disappointed with their service. Has anyone else had trouble with them? They didn't write my credit card expiry date down properly and never bothered to contact me to let me know. They just left my order sitting there. Then they were very cranky when explaining this to me.

    I hope the bulbs were worth all this trouble!

    I was happy with my bulbs and with my service. They are now in the ground and I can't wait until spring to see how they are going to bloom!!!

    Got mine on Friday, too. Just as I was going to contact them and ask if they had been shipped or not. They look wonderful, and I was glad to have them, expecially since they were free! Jan in Co
