The bulbs we are selling at curbside pickup this summer are bulbs straight from our fields and are Rhode ISland grown. These are the bulbs that flowered this spring. You will pick up these bulbs at Schartner Farms (1 Arnold Place Exeter, RI)during a short window of time.You get to experience what it's like to be a tulip farmer; you will prep and store the bulbs until it's time to plant this fall (we'll show you how). We will be offering these bulbs at a wicked discount, and while these are great bulbs not all of them will flower because some of the bulbs will be too small ( see our video or read more about this here) We are selling these "farm fresh" bulbs are the mixes we planted fro our spring event.
The bulbs we sell from our online catalog are bulbs straight from Holland and are the ones that we will plant for next years tulip event. These are premium bulbs and you are able to purchase individual varieties. These bulbs are shipped to you in the fall when it's time for fall planting season. They are ready to be planted and have been cleaned and divided for you. These bulbs are guaranteed to bloom as long as you follow proper planting instructions and plant them in an appropriate location, please see our online catalog for more information.
You will purchase the mix you want online. You will then drive to Schartner Farms 1 Arnold Place, Exeter, RI to pickup your bulbs on your appointed day. Our team will check your order and place the bagged bulbs in your trunk.

Not at the curbside but you can purcahse them from our Dutch grown varitiees at www.wickedtulips.com.
They come mixed in one bag and there is no way to know which bulb is which variety.
Most likely not, because not all of the bulbs you received will produce a flower and it is impossible to know which ones. If you want a specific variety your best option is to order our Dutch bulbs that are delivered in the fall. https://wickedtulips.com/collections/all-bulbs.
Immediately is best aka the same day, but if you can't at least get them out of the bag so they can get some airflow. Then do it as soon as possible within the week.
Sorry no, you must pick them up or have someone else pick them up for you. We are not offering refunds since we are reserving these bulbs for you and will not be able to resell them. All unclaimed bulbs will be donated to schools. churches nursing homes etc.
