FAQ's Regarding Flower Power Orders
When will my order ship?
Spring Bulb Shipping Schedule: Orders begin shipping April 1st and start shipping to the warmer states first, as they can plant sooner than the colder states. Once your order ships, you will receive an email with tracking, however, many times these automated emails go directly to junk boxes.
Are There Planting Instructions?
Once you receive your order, you will be pleased to find that each item you purchased comes with a full color label that provides you with all the information you need to have success in the garden. Each label contains a bar code, the bulb size, plant height, proper spacing, where to plant, plus other features that will assist you in growing a beautiful bulb garden!
What does hardy zone mean?
Hardy means they should return next year in the zones listed without having to do anything to them. While some items such as Gladiolus are indicated with higher hardiness zones (7-9), these items could also be planted in colder zones, but would need to be dug up in the fall and stored indoors for the winter. In short, all Flower Power items will grow virtually anywhere in North America, but they will only return in the zones listed on the site. Make sure to check the map below to identify our zone before ordering.
Use the color coded map above to determine which zone we are located in. If our zone is listed as a "hardiness zone" for any of the products they will be a perennial in our area. You can enjoy these blooms year after year! If the zone is listed as suitable but not hardy, these products will grow beautifully this summer in the garden, but may not survive the harsh winter.
How do I keep pests (rodents, bunnies and deer) from disturbing my bulbs and their blooms?
One of the best ways to keep pests away from digging up bulbs is to lay down chicken wire over the area you are planting the bulbs and cover it with soil. The holes on the chicken wire are big enough that the bulb can still emerge through. To keep pests away from eating blooms Flower Power recommends spraying the area with a repellent spray. This can be effective for up to 2 weeks even through rain. You can also use dried blood sprinkled in the soil and the area to keep pests away.
I see that most perennials are listed as plant starts or bare roots. What does that mean?
A bare root perennial is a part of the root that was harvested from a perennial in its dormant state. Plant starts are similar but will mostly likely already be showing green growth coming from the it’s root system. Both plant starts and bare roots should be planted in spring while they are still dormant or in the early phases of growth. It is very important to plant all of your Flower Power items as soon as possible after receiving them.
