Welcome to Fraser's Thimble Farms Fall bulb list. We expect to start shipping in early September and go right through till mid December with a break in October. Many of the bulbs listed are rare and available in small quantities only.  The best time to make a trip to the nursery if you plan to pick up your bulbs is late September or early October. We have tried to indicate naturally small bulbs, the size of a pea or less, with a ## sign. We ship from September 1st -September 20th, October 22nd- December 15th(Subject to change). Order by August 15th and receive a bonus of a free plant (see below).  Fall bloomers will be shipped with regular bulbs on your orders unless they arrive early.  Our bulbs are premium bulbs and are shipped to us after the regular bulbs are dispatched from the growers.  Ours travel by air rather than by ground and are stored correctly. This is why we can offer such a large selection of perishable bulbs like Fritillaria and Eremerus etc. We grow many of the rarest bulbs ourselves, including most of the Erythroniums and trilliums, and only lift them a day or so prior to shipping.  All this ensures we ship the healthiest, soundest bulbs available.

We do not rate bulbs as to their hardiness; therefore, it is your responsibility to research if a bulb is hardy to your area.  Often with new or rarely offered material hardiness is not known. In general, we will ship any plant to any place. So many things affect hardiness: frost, moisture, humidity, snow cover, wind etc.  The single most important factor is drainage, both in the winter and during the growing season.   For the most part, bulbous plants demand well draining soil. If you are in doubt about your gardens drainage, plant the bulbs in a mound.  It is also important to water your bulbs in to settle the soil and remove excess air spaces to ensure cold air does not penetrate the ground too deeply.  In general the more reliable the snow cover, the more you can plant. For example, in colder areas like Edmonton, Alberta (Zone 3) you can often get away with planting Zone 5-6 plants.   Most bulbs that are shipped are bloom sized unless otherwise stated, yet we do not guarantee blooms or the productiveness of the bulbs or plants as the subsequent cultivation falls beyond our control.  We do guarantee that the plants are true to name, healthy and sound at the time of shipping.  Thank you and enjoy our list. Take a risk and try something new, you'll probably be pleasantly surprised.To order: use the bulb order form with reduced shipping charges.
