Thanks so much for your interest in our Winter Tulip Bouquet CSA!! This past fall we planted seventy-five thousand specialty tulip bulbs for winter forcing, including many gorgeous parrot, double and fringed varieties. We are excited to announce that in addition to selling our bouquets to our regular markets here in Central Vermont, we will again be offering our CSA of weekly Winter Tulip Shares. CSA members will pick up their shares at the von Trapp Greenhouse every week and bring home a fresh bouquet of local, ecologically grown tulips. These lush specialty blooms will add color and beauty to your home during the coldest, darkest days of the year. Please read through the CSA Terms of Service and FAQs below before purchasing a CSA.
Winter Tulip Bouquet Shares Terms of Service
Tulip Bouquet CSA shares begin in mid February with a weekly bouquet for 8 weeks. We are offering Single Shares (1 Bouquet) with a limit of two shares per person. Each bouquet will include 8 stems of freshly cut tulips, wrapped in our recyclable paper flower sleeve. We are offering two different weekly pickup days this year, Wednesdays from 4:00-5:30 p.m. or, Saturdays from 9:00-10:30 a.m. When purchasing a CSA, be sure to choose the purchase option with the day that works for you. If you purchase a Wednesday 4:00-5:30 p.m. CSA share, that will be when your flowers are available for pickup. In other words the days are not interchangeable. Pickup will be at the von Trapp Greenhouse in Waitsfield. Bouquet shares are pick up only. Given the busy nature of our business, and to keep communication and administration clear and manageable, we are unable to offer alternative pickup times. Likewise, we cannot offer earlier pickup times. If for some reason you are unable to pickup your Tulip Bouquet CSA, you are welcome to send a friend or family member to pickup your bouquet share for you during your CSA pick up day/time. We are unable to credit missed or forgotten bouquets. When you purchase a Winter Tulip CSA share, you are making a commitment to pick up during the time stated. If you are giving a Winter Tulip Bouquet CSA share as a gift, please make sure the recipient has read and agreed to our terms of service and is willing to pick them up on a weekly basis. Our Winter Tulip Bouquet CSA Shares are $135.00 (plus tax) and can be purchased below. Shares are limited.
Participating in our Tulip Bouquet CSA ensures that you, or the recipient of a gifted share, will have a fresh bouquet of locally grown blooms each week. If it seems like it will be difficult for you to meet the terms of the CSA, you can always find our blooms in our local markets- see our Market Bouquet tab for more information.
(Frequently Asked Questions)
When is the first Tulip Bouquet CSA pick up week?
We will announce via email when the first week of the Tulip Bouquet CSA will start. As of now, it looks like that it will begin during the week of February 19. *This is subject to change based on availability.
Can I get a share every other week, instead of weekly?
At this time we are only offering a weekly CSA bouquet. However, you could split a share with a friend and alternate which weeks you pickup- decide among yourselves who will pickup each week. If you choose to do this, it needs to be managed by you.
Can I pick up my share a few minutes early, or late?
Nope, sorry! I am super busy running deliveries around Central Vermont and making sure our parking lot is ready for CSA members to arrive, and as such the times in the CSA Terms of Service are NOT flexible. If you feel like there is a chance that the timing wont work for you, you can always find our blooms at our local markets.
What if I am out of town on my Bouquet pick up day?
If you are away, please arrange for a friend to pick up your bouquet, and let us know via email that someone else will be picking up for you.
What if I forget to pick up my bouquet?
If you forget to pick up your bouquet, we cannot arrange an alternative time for you to pick it up. We are super busy growing, arranging and delivering flowers. Please try and remember to pick up your bouquet.
Can I purchase an extra bouquet when I pick up my share?
Sometimes we will have extra bouquets available, but this wont always be the case.
Can I buy more than two Tulip Bouquet CSA shares?
Sorry, at this time we are limiting two shares per person. We have a lot of interest in our CSA and want to be able to accommodate as many people as possible.
Can I give a Bouquet CSA as a gift?
Absolutely!! The Tulip Bouquet CSA makes a great gift! If gifting, please indicate that it is a gift and include the recipients name, email address and phone number. Also, if you would like me to email you a printable gift certificate for the recipient, I am happy to do so, just shoot me an email to let me know.
