Instructions for Months of Flowers

Upon arrival, remove the container carefully so you don't damage new shoots. Remove the protective covering and water the container thoroughly. Place the container in a cool location (60 to 65 degrees F. is ideal) with bright light.

If your bulbs arrive frozen, let them thaw overnight, then water them well.

Before shipment, our pre-planted bulbs are stored in coolers in darkness, so their sprouts may appear yellow and somewhat bent upon arrival. Once you place the container in bright light, the sprouts will turn green in two to three days.

If you are unable to care for your container immediately, water it well. You can keep it for a few days in a cool (60 to 65 degrees F) dark place.

As your bulbs begin to grow, periodically rotate the container to prevent foliage from leaning toward the light. Keep the soil in the container consistently moist.

As the plants grow taller and the bulbs begin to flower, they might require more frequent watering.

You can expect blooms in three to six weeks, depending on the bulb variety. Once the bulbs are in full flower, the blooms typically last one to two weeks. To ensure long-lasting blooms, keep the pot well-watered, out of direct sunlight and in a cool spot (60 to 65 degrees F. is best).

With the first shipment, you will receive a cachepot. It's meant to be used with subsequent shipments.
