 NEW NOTICE OF POLICY CHANGE.
                  Changes in policies and prices to follow soon... this is a courtesy notice
 
In the last two years major issues & changes have occurred so I have to modify my policy & prices.
I am awaiting my approval for my next shipment of bulb so until that time photos will stay up but I am 
updating the website as fast as I can.
Hopefully I will be able to update varieties of bulbs soon.
 
I am sorry to say that due to logistics and issues with where I previously obtained my lily bulbs,
I now have to purchase at least 80% of all my bulbs from a supplier which are not previously grown and 
recycled the bulbs are freshly harvested and ready to bloom for the commercial industry.
They are kept in crates with coconut/peat moss no soil so no chance of any pests in a large commercial cooler 
set at a temperature to prevent growth until shipped.
They come straight from a cooler where they are stored and await the heat to start growing.
There is no need of me vernalizing the bulbs, as they are already to spring forth days after planting...
 
Due to purchasing new product certain benefits that I had been able to establish years ago,
I can no longer employ. IE: Such as freebie dozens for certain levels of purchase price.
I may be able to substitute other types of bulbs in those circumstances and will contact those customers who
have reached that volume purchase point.
If circumstances change back to what they had been in the past I will gladly re-employ those benefits and will notify the website if and when that occurs.
Based on what my purchase cost prices are, my web page prices will have to be modified to reflect that.
 
**When and where I can, I will keep the price the same which was one dozen for $10.00.
Certain types and varieties of bulbs I may now have to sell per bulb. Again this is a difficult choice
and will endeavour to keep prices as low as possible for the customer. **
 
Large volume purchases will be priced accordingly.
The free shipping on volume purchases will remain the same at this time.
I am revisiting the shipping costs to see how I can keep the price reasonable.
If you have any questions, please email me. Please remember also that I do work a full time job which 
has certain rush times that makes checking or replying to emails possibly delayed.
Thank you for your patience and your understanding during this time..

What others have to say about the Lily Lady

The Lily Lady goes online

Tracey Martin of Mount Denson has started a new online business selling recycled Asiatic and Oriental flower bulbs.
The Lily Lady goes online
A Mount Denson gardener has come up with a unique idea for a business that recycles bulbs used for growing cut flowers.
Although these bulbs are perennial, florists cannot afford to wait the three to five months it takes for them to regenerate.

Tracey Martin gives the bulbs a chance to grow again by selling them through her business â€Lilies from the Valley†www.liliesfromthevalley.com", where customers can buy a dozen lily bulbs for $8 to $10.

Martin is the president of the Mount Denson Garden Club. Sheâ€s close to completing a one-year course as a flower and vegetable judge and also freelances as a flower arranger for weddings and other occasions. Sheâ€s also got a home crammed full of houseplants. At one time she counted 500 amongst her collection.

Martin says sheâ€s always been drawn to lilies because of the fragrance of the orientals. In addition to these, she stocks Asiatics.

Visitors can place their name on a waiting list for varieties not yet in stock and a free lily bulb is provided for birthdays.

Lily bulbs are easy to grow says Martin but a few basics must be followed.

â€They do not like wet feet, the bulb will rot,†she said.

The flowers grow in sun or shade but are taller in the latter as they stretch for light. They benefit from phosphate, gypsum, and grow well in humus-enriched soil. Heavy clay tends to stunt the plants.

Martin says she doesnâ€t even bother to amend her soil.

â€I just pop them in and let nature take its course. I don't even water them most of the time. But they put on quite a show,†she said.

The lilies grow well on slopes and hills, but require support if the location is windy. The bulbs like to be shaded and Martin suggests planting vegetation around the bulbs that dies back by the time the lilies bloom in July.

Lily beetles are pests in some areas of the province but this grower says they havenâ€t bothered her yet.

â€I have seen the damage caused by this pest. Not pretty. The larvae are red, kind of like a potato beetle. They can strip the leaves very fast. When you see clusters of 'poop,' the larvae is protecting its self and will pupate in the castings,†she said.

Normally Martin handpicks bugs but with these beetles, she uses a control like Sevin while carefully following the instructions.
