Bulbs Discounts

To encourage group and co-op orders, we offer the following volume discounts on orders we receive by the August 16, 2019 discount deadline:

5% on orders $100 and up
10% on orders $300 and up
15% on orders $600 and up
20% on orders $1200 and up

Discounts are calculated from the order Subtotal of all items (before adding shipping or tax).

Orders received after August 16, 2019 do not earn volume discounts and you should expect some items to have sold out; check our availability page for up-to-date info.

Consumer Member Discount: Consumer members of the Cooperative earn a 1% discount on all orders. If you log in using the email address we have in our member database, the discount will apply automatically. If you are a member and the discount does not appear, please write us a note in the Order Comments space on the final checkout page; we will verify and refund you as appropriate.

Group orders: We take group orders online or by mail. Only one shipping charge (if any), and the group’s Subtotal determines the discount (if any). We make one shipment (or more , if you’ve got early shipment items [6101-6125] or late shipment items [6901-6911]) to one address with members’ orders individually packed and labeled. Group pickup orders are to be picked up all at once. As with all Fedco orders, a second order over $50 from the same group earns the same discount level as the first. Group coordinators and group members click here for info, including how to form a new group.

The final order date for early shipment items is August 16, 2019.

The discount deadline is also Friday, August 16, 2019.

Payment

We accept Visa, MasterCard, AmEx and Discover cards. Payment must accompany all orders. (Except, government agencies and non-profit organizations should call us to set up your Purchase Order before you order.)

We will charge your card when we receive your order. We will bill or refund you for any adjustments as each order is completed.

Sales tax

Orders shipped to Maine addresses and all pickup customers pay 5.5% sales tax. Because of the Supreme Court decision in June 2018, we must collect local taxes in states that require us to do so. Farms and retailers: please send us a copy of your state resale certificate or farm exemption. Otherwise we must charge sales tax.

Pick up your order, shop for surplus bulbs, or browse our selections of perennials and woody plants at our Fall Bulb and Plant Sale on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9am-3pm at our warehouse at 213 Hinckley Road, Clinton, Maine. We will send you an email or postcard with directions and your order number in late September. Pickup orders pay no shipping charges.

Substitutions

With live plant material, there are inevitably unforeseen shortages and failures. Most people prefer getting bulbs to getting a refund. There are two checkboxes on the order form: one to accept or decline a variety substitute, and one to accept Eco-grown garlic in lieu of certified organic. When you indicate “Yes” to substitutions, if a variety becomes unavailable, we will follow this protocol, according to availability:
  • Flowerbulbs and Eco-grown garlic - We will substitute a variety of similar color, form and season, if available.
  • Organic garlic - We’ll substitute Eco-grown if organic is not available.

For all substitutions, we will refund any price difference.
