ordering bulbs

jacqui_ontario(z5 Ont)January 28, 2009


My DIL moved from Ontario Canada to Maui 4 years ago and is learning to garden there and loving it.

I'd like to give her a birthday gift certificate for mail order bulbs. What nurseries to ship to Hawaii?

I'm thinking of Summer Bulbs that are not hardy here in Canada - like gladiolus, dahlias, begonias, calla lilies, etc.

Thanks for your help

What a thoughtful gesture Jacqui!

Even when you can find a nursery that ships to Hawaii the delivery charges can be prohibitive. A gift certificate to a local nursery might be a better way to go. I suggest Kula Ace (now TrueValue i think). A bit of a drive from some parts of the island and caters to the upcountry crowd but outside of the big-box stores offers the best selection of the various flowering bulbs.

Thanks Mauirose,
Son and DIL live slightly above Haiku, so Kula Ace is nearby. I'll be visiting them soon and can buy a gift certificate and enjoy a tour of the nursery in person.
Thanks for your help
