Some Sad News from Overseas…

Our tulip broker in the Netherlands has warned us that it’s been a bad year for tulips in fields there, rest assured that our order has been confirmed and there should be no crop shortages. It does mean that if there are varieties you’ve been meaning to order, now is the time, as stock may be more limited than in years past.

And we recently heard from Alan Shipp in England that - due to a volunteer’s error - he’s lost a year’s worth of rare hyacinths (though luckily no varieties completely) and will be spending the fall propagating and planting his remaining bulbs to increase their numbers. We’re heart-broken, as we so admire his hard work and dedication and always look forward to being able to announce which varieties we’ll have each fall – and we wish him great success as he rebuilds his collection.
