About Us

How to Order



As of yet we lack the proper facilities that would allow direct ordering from this site. A pdf order form is available for printing which can be completed and sent to us along with payment by check.

 Fall-blooming Colchicums corms need to be planted and shipped in late August or early September. The Leucojums, Sanguinarias, Anemones and Trollius also prefer to be planted in the late summer.

These early shipped items must be on a separate order form (and unfortunately separate mailing charges) from any daffodil bulbs that are to be shipped later in the fall.

 

 

The “& More”Daffodils & More Greenhouse part of our name refers to the many other interesting plants we are evaluating and growing for sale. Besides the previously mentioned Trollius, Camassia, and Colchicum, these include hardy field-grown ferns and the very reliable Delphinium strains from New Zealand.

Our seasonal greenhouse is filled with tropical ferns, scented geraniums, plus what Chanticleer Gardens' horticulturist Dan Benarcik once called, "the best selection of Bromeliads north of Orlando".  As of yet we lack the proper seasonal facilities that would make mail order possible for most of these items but you are welcome to visit the greenhouse and shop. Call ahead for an appointment.

Daffodil Note Cards

I remain continually amazed by those who can look, see, and interpret what we all seem to be seeing, and then perfectly portray it with a series of pen strokes. We are proud to be able to offer the first set of daffodil note cards penned by artist Rebecca Brown of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Rebecca produces additional sets of cards with differing themes-“Historic Gettysburg Battlefield Homes” is just one example. Contact us or the artist directly (717-334-2304) for details.

As of yet we lack the proper facilities that would make mail order possible for most of these items. The best method for discovering our other plant selections is to come see us at one of the many enjoyable horticultural events we regularly attend as vendors. In addition, David is often urged to bring along plant material relative to his lecture topics to offer attendees, so these dates are included too.

The Achin' Back Sale

David Burdick  photo by Richard EzellDavid Burdick's thirty some years of working in the horticultural industry has included extended stints at both wholesale growing and retail nursery operations, with a nine year run wedged in between as an educator and horticulturist at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge, MA.  Obsessive Collecting Tendency Syndrome has plagued him for all of that time, including long bouts with Sedum, Trollius, and the Bromeliaceae. These now seem to be in somewhat manageable states of remission. At this time though, no cure has been found or is even in sight for the current mutant strain that produces the "yellow fever" associated with the genus Narcissus.

 

David Burdick grows daffodils (& more) in Dalton, Massachusetts. Most all the daffodils we grow were initially introduced as exhibition flowers, and if you’re open to enjoying the camaraderie and competition of a daffodil show, all will still win ribbons. Yet our primary focus continues to be garden performance in the rugged New England climate; the mission of getting good bulbs of good varieties into gardeners’ hands remains steadfast.
