It's another busy year here at Van Engelen! We apologize for selling out of so many varieties so early this year. Happily, of those varieties that sold out the earliest, we were able to reorder more of quite a few of them in limited quantities this week. If you were disappointed that you weren't able to order some of your favorites, keep an eye on our website as our inventory updates. You might just get a second chance. We encourage you to reserve your clients’ favorite varieties as soon as possible, particularly if they have fallen in love with any of our new introductions. Yet again, the Netherlands has essentially “sold out” of flower bulbs due to the heightened passion for gardening worldwide. Fortunately, we are well-stocked for the season since we ordered well in advance, and we still have lots of wonderful varieties from which to choose. We start shipping to colder areas of the country the week of September 26, and will ship your orders at the proper time for planting in your Horticultural Zone.
Websites Are a Work in Progress
As orders pour in, there are moments when our websites may huff and puff and time themselves out. We are working hard to energize them and correct this glitch which is usually in the credit card payment section. If this does happen, please take a screen shot of your wheelbarrow, or print your order out since orders time out after one hour. We certainly don’t want you to lose your order details. You may also email your order to us at email@example.com or phone your order in to 860.567.8734. We are speedy and are here to help you.
Sorry to say, but there have been price increases here and there. We did our best to absorb the lion’s share of cost increases from packaging, freight and shipping as well as the increased cost of the bulbs themselves. Some varieties continue to be in short supply like Allium Globemaster and Large Flowering Dutch Crocus. At this time, it also appears that ordering more Narcissus inventory is highly unlikely.
We are Here for You!
We are here for you from 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Don't ever hesitate to call. We can provide you with prior orders; help you make selections, share our photos for client presentations and give you sharp pencil quotations on individual varieties over published pricing. A fourth generation family business, we’re committed to providing you with the best Dutch flower bulbs at the best prices with personal service. We never substitute quality, named varieties or bulb size.
From our many fine colleagues in the Netherlands to our Bantam, CT warehouse and call center, we work hard to make sure that the bulbs your receive from us are simply the best. Beauty from bulbs is the art and soul of spring. Never underestimate the power of planting.
If you step away from your wheelbarrow for more than an hour, its contents will be emptied and returned to inventory. If you haven't made up your mind, place your order knowing that you can change it prior to shipment. If you're just not ready to order yet, please print a copy of your wheelbarrow for your own reference.
