Hi PinkFreud !

Your tulip suggestions worked like a champ.

I ordered 200 stems from the firm in Washington State for about a buck apiece.

Bingo!  Out of the dog house like pate through a goose.

So, now I need a firm that sells French Tulips.
(I'm planning ahead for my next screw up.)

These French Tulips seem to be more expensive than the regular tulips.

A 5-star answer would be two sites with cheap bulk flowers.
($1-$1.50 per stem would be great, but that may be too cheap on my part.)

All comments greatly appreciated !

Thanks for accepting my answer. I don't think you are a cheapskate for
wanting to pay a reasonable amount for tulips. A cheapskate would be a
guy who sent a single tulip bulb, and expected his ladylove to supply
the dirt and the pot. ;-)

As I mentioned, my searches failed to turn up any inexpensive French
tulips. This was the best price I found:

$32.50 per bunch of 10 (white only):

Fresh Flowers and More

Here are some other, even more expensive options:

$59.00 per bunch of 10 (white only):

$45.00 per bunch of 10 (pink, not currently in stock):


$42.00 per bunch of 10 (yellow, not currently in stock):


$85.00 per bunch of 10 (yellow):

8 Colors Roses

I found a site that apparently does not sell online, but which might
be worth contacting if you want to arrange a bulk purchase. Brand
Flowers, Inc. is a large greenhouse in Carpinteria, California. They
carry French tulips, but no pricing is listed:

Brand Flowers, Inc. 
5300 Foothill Road
Carpinteria, CA 93013 
Fax: 805-684-1528
Tel: 1-800-549-0085, 805-684-5531 

Brand Flowers

Here's another possibility for a bulk purchase. Sun Valley Floral is a
grower of cut flowers in Arcata, California. They offer pink "Renown"
French tulips:

Sun Valley Floral 

You can enter your ZIP code here to find a wholesaler in your area:

Google Web Search: "french tulips"

This has been an educational experience. I had no idea that French
tulips were such a high-end product. I shall certainly remember this
in the unlikely event that my husband should ever be very, very
naughty and need to make amends.

Best wishes,

French tulips are VERY pricey. This was the only place I found that
sells fresh French tulips for less than $5 per stem:

$32.50 per bunch of 10 (white only):

Fresh Flowers and More

Sorry I couldn't do better, but I just don't think there are any
bargain-priced French tulips. :-(

I forgot to mention something that I stumbled upon while searching for
your tulips. These chocolate tulips would be a cute gift:

Candy Warehouse

A fancier version:

Candy Bouquet

They don't say that these are Dutch chocolate, but that would seem
appropriate for tulips.

Do they have Atkins Diet chocolate?

heh  heh  heh

Just kidding.  I've ordered from the Candy Warehouse before;  they do
a great job, as evidenced by my physique.

Thanks, PinkFreud.  You are The Best !

Greetings Nronronronro!

I'm in total agreement on your statement "PinkFreud----you crack me up
!" and with the fact that her answers are always so entertaining and
infomative.  Bet you didn't know that she recently celebrated the
answering of her 800th question!

By the way, did your friends ever open their kennel business?  If so,
I hope it's going well and nice to see you again!

Best regards,

Hi Journalist !

They did indeed open the business.  Check out
So far, business is booming!

(I though the idea of super-expensive mutt training would be nutty.
But I was completely wrong.  It's selling like hot dogs.)

Thanks for all your help, Journalist.  I know they appreciate it.
