The Lily Pad Bulb Farm
Olympia, Washington since 1985 - serving the continguous United States and Alaska. We supply big, healthy, productive bulbs, garden-tested for outdoor growing in temperate regions, USDA zones 4 - 9, with a definite change of season. Orders placed from this listing will be fulfilled beginning March 1, 2013.
SHIPPING BEGINS MARCH 1 2013. ORDER NOW to reserve your bulbs. (Sorry, we can't rush our harvest without sacrificing size and quality of bulbs. Early deliveries are just not possible, considering our growing region). For gardeners in regions with early freezing, we suggest preparing the planting site in advance, so you can promptly and safely plant your bulbs immediately upon delivery.
OUR LILY BULBS ARE GROWN IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, with newer and patented types originating in Holland, freshly-dug. We honor patent rights and thus do not propagate from patented stock.
WHEN ARE ORDERS SHIPPED? Lily bulbs ordered at this time will be shipped beginning March 1. We ship in the sequence that orders are received, however you may request particular shipping time IN THE “COMMENTS” field of your online order form and we will do our best to accommodate you. We cannot necessarily guarantee bulbs shipped after April 15 and strongly recommend that you take delivery no later than April 1. Sold-out items are removed from the website.
WHEN SHOULD LILY BULBS BE PLANTED? Regardless of when they are purchased we advise planting promptly after bulbs are received to receive benefit of our quality guarantee. Prolonged storage of bulbs and bare root plants requires special conditions, which the average gardener may not be capable of providing. All our stock is perennial, meaning there is no need to dig and store over the Winter, once planted.

Our Size Grades
We specify for each product the bulb size or grade. That is more than some companies will venture to do, thus you are assured of getting the size (or larger) that you ordered. Lily bulbs are measured by their circumference, ie: a 18/20cm. bulb would measure 18 to 20 centimeters around. Daylily roots are measured in number of "fans" and Peony roots in number of eyes. The more eyes or fans, the bigger the roots. For tree peonies, we use age as the size grade, ie: one-year, two-year, three-year, and so forth.
In general the bigger or older the size grade the more readily the plants get established and the sooner and more heavily they bloom.
Pricing on our website is per plant or bulb. Whenever supply permits, we also list 3-pack pricing and in some cases 10-pack pricing. We cannot mix or split our multi-packs for this pricing. Many bulk offers and combos can be found on our web site. Contact us for quotes on larger quantities.
When are credit cards processed?
Credit cards will be processed prior to shipping time (soon after your order is submitted) to reserve your bulbs and avoid last minute processing delays. All online orders are immediately followed by automatic email confirmation. If you do not receive this, please contact us to verify the status of your order.
To change your order
If you wish to add to an existing order, there is no need to submit another order. Simply email us and request the items you want to add to your prior order. We will re-caculate charges. Usually this saves you money in the final analysis. If you wish to diminish your order or cancel the order, you will be responsible for any processing fees incurred to reverse the transaction. That is usually a nominal ammount. Please give us ample notice if you wish to cancel.
