really elaine. so was it too much or were yall able to absorb it? you didn't flood right?
i am still waiting on bulbs. i am hoping everything will be here by next thur.
and as for how many tahita........the paperwork says we got 50 apotheose but the box inside the box says tahita...........so say i have 50 for now.
i will call them on monday mainly for grins as there doesn't seem to be any way to stop the adr train once it's set in motion. you can't cancel. you may or may not can add. that remains to be seen. however everything coming in looks good. except for the iris which are crispy critters but will grow if you keep em watered for awhile. ........just so you know what i mean by crispy critters......you know those iris you get in spring in the bags.........they look like that. i thought about planting but i didn't think it would be good to get them growing only to stop them again when i shipped to you.
i got my van going again. hasn't been working since way before july. still have to get inspected and registered. can't afford it all the same month. except i have to drive it 50 miles before i can get it inspected due to that machine. i hope the policemen will understand that.
ooh, everybody should jump on the Tahiti... it's my favorite double daffodil! Sturdy, fragrant, big blooms, just stunning.
Walter explained about the early boxes (I got a couple) when I talked to him a couple weeks ago... Everything is shipped from their family farm in Holland, which I knew, but what I didn't realize is that orders are packed and addressed there also! When the boxes arrive stateside, they send them straight over to Fed Ex. So when I ask for a specific delivery date, they have to try to "catch" my boxes and remove them from the pallets. They're pretty good at that, but sometimes a few slip through, which he apologized for. Hopefully you're able to store them at air-conditioned indoor temperatures... if not, let ADR know. They can be confusing to deal with for smaller orders like this & like the local group buy we're doing here, but they always always make us happy in the end.
everyone............regarding tahiti..........adr said yesterday that they sent tahiti instead of apotheose. they said it's a better flower. if you are not ok with that then it's ok to cancel. apotheose didn't grow well this year they said.
regarding lycoris albiflora...........not sure those are coming. don't charge for those just yet susan as it doesnt sound hopeful that we'll get them.
susan you do understand that the people who bought apotheose are now getting tahiti UNLESS they tell you when they are ready to pay that they don't want that variety they will automatically be sent tahiti by me. now as long as we have extras other people can order but just wanted you to be on top of the 50 count that we got.
also talked with adr again. no bulbs came this week at all. he is supposed to call me back today but i bet i don't hear till monday. i'll keep you posted as i hear.
