Product Details

This lively mix of fragrant spring bloomers creates a circus of color, flower forms and scents to enliven winter days. The bright orange blossoms of fragrant Tulip ‘Orca’ are complemented by the tangerine coronas of sweetly perfumed Narcissus ‘Kedron’ and the orange-red small cups of white-petaled Narcissus ‘Barrett Browning.’ Tulip ‘Purple Prince’ adds a rich, regal hue that’s repeated in the flowers of fragrant Hyacinth ‘Purple Sensation’ and the purple-and-white feathered blossoms of Tulip ‘Flaming Flag.’ Adding blue notes are the scented lavender-blue blooms of Hyacinth ‘Delft Blue’ and the small spikes of fragrant Muscari armeniacum. A total of 62 bulbs sent in a 13" wide x 7½" tall Clematis vine basket, ready to begin growing on arrival.

Our forced bulb collections will provide you or your friends with color and fragrance during the winter. We carefully pot and hold the bulbs in cold temperatures for the required time to ensure a carefree and reliable performance. Set in a sunny window in a cool room, these indoor bulb gardens designed and tested here by our head gardener will yield a delightful tapestry of bloom. They are ready to begin growing on arrival, and will flower in about 4 to 5 weeks.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

I can't say enough about how pretty this basket is, and how much it is brightening my winter. The mix of small tulips, narcissus and grape hyacinths is dreamy. A huge hit for me.

Nice but not all flowers opened

I ordered the Air of April bulb basket as a Xmas gift for myself. The bulbs that opened: orange tulips, daffodils, grape hyacinths, and purple/white striped tulips are beautiful. Unfortunately, the 6 purple tulips never opened. The purple tulips grew and produced a bud, but the flowers died without opening. Also, the hyacinths only grew 2 inches tall. I previously purchased other White Flower bulb baskets and the hyacinths never grew to the height they should, so this did not surprise me.
Overall, I would say that the flowers are pretty, but since several never opened/grew, I am not sure it is worth the high price of $115 plus shipping.

Only one hyacinth and one variety of narcissus. All plants are short and unattractive. Definitely not lush like the photos.

The bulbs in our forced bulb collections (which may include Crocus, Hyacinths, Iris, Muscari, Narcissus, and Tulips) arrive potted, with a layer of protective packaging material on top. You may discard this packing material. 

Set the pots on a sunny windowsill in a cool room. A nighttime temperature of about 50-55°F, such as is found near a window, is ideal. Water when the potting mix is dry to the touch. We recommend removing the pots from the basket or cachepot before watering. Push any Spanish Moss aside, water the pots thoroughly and let them drain before replacing in the basket. Rearrange the Moss around the leaves.

There is no need to fertilize. Please note that the growth of the bulbs will be slower in a cooler part of the house. Warmer temperatures may speed growth, but can result in weaker flowering stems. Bulbs usually begin blooming 4-5 weeks after arrival.

What you do with your bulbs after they bloom depends on your climate and your inclinations. The bulbs can't be forced to bloom indoors again, but they can be planted outdoors--if they are hardy in your area. (Most of the bulbs in our collections are winter hardy to at least Zone 4 [-30°F]. Narcissus 'Avalanche' is hardy to Zone 6 [-10°F].) Continue to water the bulbs after they bloom and keep them in a sunny window. When the threat of hard frost has passed, plant each bulb with a trowel at a depth equivalent to about three times the bulb's height. Expect 2 or more years to pass before the bulbs bloom again. In our experience, Tulips will rarely bloom again. In fact, we think caring for the bulbs after bloom and planting them out in spring is rarely worth the effort, so we prefer simply to toss the bulbs out after they've finished blooming. However, we know of customers who enjoy the process and don't mind the wait.
