There are many ways to know if you are getting the best bulbs for your money. Sometimes you can tell if you are getting inferior bulbs from bulb appearance. The way it looks, feels (“hollow” bulbs are pretty much dead and won’t produce beautiful flowers, if any at all) and even smells. You can tell you a lot about the bulb you are buying and what kind of flowers it will bloom into. |
One thing we have been asked a thousand times is, “does the size of the bulb matter?” Yes, it sure does! It is really pretty simple; bigger bulbs produce bigger and more spectacular flowers. Have you seen the size of the Giant White Squill bulb? It can get bigger than a basketball! It also produces some pretty superb flowers.
Oversized bulbs settle in better and produce more flower stems. Always look for information about the size of the bulbs you’re buying to get the most for your money. Offering smaller bulbs is the primary way unscrupulous flower bulb sellers skimp to reduce their costs – at your expense! Don’t settle for small bulbs and subpar flowers, make sure you are buying quality bulbs.
