How do you ship?
Standard shipping is through the US Postal Service and will ship from our facility within 2 to 5 business days. Once shipped, items generally take approximately 2-4 days in transit.
Orders of larger weight and/or volume will be shipped via FedEx. If your shipping address requires a specific method of shipment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
All orders will receive an email confirmation of shipping once they leave our warehouse. This confirmation will include a tracking number which will confirm the method of shipment and provide an estimated date of delivery.
Do you offer International shipping?
We are unable to accommodate International shipping. Due to the nature of our product, there are some very strict regulations and fees placed on export practices, and at this time we are unable to comply.
How many seeds are in an ounce/pound?
All of our seed products are packed by weight, rather than by count, so unfortunately a seed count is not available. We have "seed coverage" information available on individual product listings that can help you to determine the correct amount of seed needed for the area you wish to plant.
Are your products GMO?
No, none of our products are GMO, or genetically modified organisms. For more information on our stance on GMO Free seeds and to read our Safe Seed Pledge, please click here.
Are your seeds treated?
Some of our seeds are coated with a fungicidal treatment that protects them from pests and disease during the seeding and germination phases.
Are your products heirloom/hybrid/organic?
We sell heirloom, open pollinated and hybrid seeds on our site, as well as organic varieties. We do not sell GMO products. Heirloom seeds will be listed as "Heirloom" in the product title and/or description and can be found under the Heirloom drop down menu at the top of our site. Anything that is not designated "Heirloom" can be assumed to be open pollinated varieties. Known hybrid varieties will be designated in the Fast Facts section of individual products. Organic varieties will be clearly labeled in the title of the selection, i.e. Bulk Sunflower Seeds - Mammoth Grey-Stripe vs. Bulk Sunflower Seeds (Organic) - Mammoth Grey-Stripe
How should I store unused seed?
Keep seeds in a sealed plastic bag or container to prevent insects, and in a dark, cool and dry place to prevent premature germination and other forms of decay. Do NOT store seeds in the refrigerator! We generally do not recommend storage if at all possible; the best option is to order in the same season that you intend to plant. However if you end up with left over seeds, you should be able to store through to the following season with favorable results. With proper storage, our seeds will lose less than 5% viability per year of storage.
When will my wildflowers bloom?
The exact bloom time of our wildflowers will vary based on your unique region and circumstances. Our wildflower mixes include a wide range of varieties that will ideally bloom at slightly different times, to give you the widest range of color for the longest season possible. Most wildflowers will bloom in spring and summer but a few varieties will bloom into the fall as well.
The important thing to remember with wildflowers is that perennial varieties will not bloom the first season. They need one growing cycle to establish themselves, and will be ready to bloom the following year after dying back in the winter. On the other hand, all annual wildflower varieties will bloom the first year.
Why can’t I place an order without an email address?
We need to be able to send you both an email invoice to confirm your order, as well as shipping confirmations that will include tracking information on your shipments. These emails are sent both to verify information and to protect your interests as a customer. Please note that we do not sell or share your email information with any other party. Ever.
Do you charge Sales Tax?
Bulk Wildflowers charges sales tax on orders shipping to a number of states where we are required by law to collect state tax. The amount of sales tax charged depends on products purchased, the shipping destination of the order, and the location from which orders are shipped. Some customers including farmers, resellers and others may be tax exempt. For more information about how to file for exemption and to see which states charge taxes, visit our Sales Tax page.
Can I use more than one coupon code per order?
We only allow one coupon to be used per order and it cannot be combined with other offers or discounts.
