How fast does B & D Lilies normally deliver?

I ordered a few days ago from the scratch and dent sale. I did receive email confirmation of my order. I don't know their pattern/practice. Just trying to plan my planting days, insofar as such a thing is possible. .

don't know, hope you got it by now. :)

Not yet, no. I emailed them yesterday, they said they hoped to get it in the mail today. Said with the holiday last week they could not ship. Too risky to have the bulbs sit someplace enroute and freeze. Makes sense. Crossing my fingers with the weather.....

An update: the bulbs arrived on Wednesday. So it was pretty fast, once they shipped.

Sort of an update. I know the theory behind the scratch and dent sale, and was happy to get such a deep discount. Most bulbs were at least the size I have paid full price for elsewhere. Almost everything I got seemed to be one where the stem had come out sideways. Or were just oddly shaped.

But…the Orienpets I ordered were really BIG! They had mentioned on the site that sometimes they include premium sized bulbs, when not enough of those are sold the regular way. Wow! Of course, there’s no guarantee that will happen again, but considering how slow to increase Orienpets are in my garden, these will be very impressive next year. I’m very happy with B & D now.
