I just ordered 30 double tuberoses and paid through PayPal. Just want to be sure my order went through and will be shipped to me. I’ve ordered from you before and love my tuberoses. I’m going to share some of these with a couple of friends. Blessings, Kay Coggins
Hi! The tuberoses I got from you were *AMAZING * this year! I can’t even begin to state how much I have loved growing them. I’m in zone 7b/8a and they are in a raised bed. I think I’d like to dig them just to be sure they make it for next year. Should I wait until the first frost so that the foliage dies down, or should I dig them sooner (now?) The foliage is still gorgeous and they still have flower stalks. Thank you! Nathan Strange
Hello Dyers and Tennessee Tuberoses-
I just received my beautiful tuberose tubers! They look great. Very excited to be growing with them this season.
I do have one question- My last frost is at the end of March. What is the best storage for the tubers until I plant them out at the beginning of April? In the box they shipped in in a dark location? In a box with more ventilation? Cooler?Thanks for your help!

I’ve ordered from you in the past. Unfortunately I lost all of my single tuberose last winter because I stored them in my walk-in cooler, and it must’ve been too cold for them- I had accumulated over 700 bulbs!😰.
I’m interested in ordering at least 500-700 single Mexican tuberose from you. I’m a commercial grower and I sell directly to my florists. I’m just wondering if you sell wholesale, or what is the best deal you could do for me?
I missed them terribly this summer- they are one of my favorites!😊💐
Thanks so much for your time! Thank you!

Good Morning Sherry and Derek,
I will not be planting my bulbs outside since I live in Wisconsin at the end of September .
I will be trying to “force” them along side some Paperwhites for blooms at Christmas.
If I do not plant them all for use at Christmas time do you think a few will keep all winter in my basement along with all the other summer bulbs I have to pull and store?
I am a flower nut and my goal is to have one of everything that will grow in my WI zone 4.5. LOL!
I just discovered Tuberose flowers when I bought some flowers at our local Sat outdoor market.
What an amazing smell, I have to grow these!
Also I bought from you because I loved your website. There are going to be people that read your Christian message and click away and those that love your witnessing for Christ.
Thank you for not being afraid to proclaim your faith.
Good Morning, I found your website after doing a search and your story is amazing. I have a dear friend who had a Turberose from her Grandmother that she lost due to a new puppy. I would lov to give her a new start and am wondering if your bulbs would survive the California climate? We live in the Central Valley..foggy winters, mild springs and hot summers. When you have time, can you please let me know? Thank you so much for your help and time. Sincerely, Paulette Wright
I am interested in your bulbs; however, in the past two years I have bought bulbs from Eden Brothers and I have had very limited success with them blooming. My wife loves the fragrance and the fact that they are an old, heirloom, antique flower. What recommendations can you give me to be very success and to have these multiply each year, instead of lingering to a withered death.? I am truly interested in buying at least 100 bulbs this fall but I want to have the flower bed ready for them and/or have an area in my basement for them to store over winter. I would like to place my order directly with a person.God Bless,Gene
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Dyer, Thank you for all the information you have posted on your website and for the lovely tuberoses. I particularly enjoyed reading about Purle and how you found each other. I foster animals and it is one of my greatest joys to take care of a scared creature and bring it back to health and comfort and let it know safety and love. So thank you for taking care of Purle and I am sure you are a real blessing to each other! I grew tuberose for the first time this summer in my zone 7B garden, and really loved them. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to answer some questions about their care. We experienced a severe cold snap about a week ago (down to about 15 degrees) and I was afraid to leave my bulbs in the raised beds I use. So I carefully dug them up, shook off most of the dirt, cut off most of the green leaves, and they are now in a 50 degree partially heated garage. Should I pack them in any kind of peat moss or compost over the winter? Was I wrong to dig them up, I did not have time to put down 6-8 inches of mulch and I was afraid they would still freeze. And I couldn’t leave them out in the sun for 2-3 weeks since it went down to 15 degrees that night. Should I put them in a sunny window in my kitchen, or just leave them in the garage? Thank you very much for all you do and for answering these questions. Best Wishes, Daniela
We received our order today…thank you so much for your generosity and also for your wonderful website!So touched by your love of Jesus. God bless,Melissa Slaughter
