Home Depot has bulbs!

beachplant(9b)September 30, 2010

Went to Home depot last Friday in Dickinson. They have the kits with Minerva, Red Lion & Apple Blossom, $5.98 each.

BUT they have HUGE Red Lion & Minerva bulbs for $6.98 each. They are packed in a plastic mesh bag. I bought 2 of each, most of the bulbs had thick, healthy looking roots. They are about the size of a softball.

Tally HO!

Do these places usually have more selection than those three? I've always seen those but really not much of anything else *that I can remember*

....They usually throw in Piquant, but all you usually get is a picture of Piquant and one of the other 3 in the Piquant box... it's never Piquant.....50% of the time you get a mislabel, but we've all got many fat and happy Minervas growing in our collections from the big box stores......

Lowes should be getting Christmas bulbs soon. We received 5 varieties of amaryllis (nothing uncommon) and also paperwhites the other day.

nothing at Lowes, last year they had a lot of different ones, Susan, Star of Holland, I forget what else, most of them were labeled correctly, the ones I got that were mislabeled were almost all doubles and not a dud in the bunch. I almost always see white christmas also.
K-got the envelope, now where did I put it??

The HD in the Woodlands has HUGE bagged bulbs...you're right Tally...softball-size!!! So, got one of each...why not!
:-)

AND...from last year's discussion, NO SIGN OF RL WITH LOPPED OFF BASAL PLATES!! Am guessing they didn't sell out last year!! Knowing what I know now...I would be tempted. Those bulbs were at least 1.5 times the size of the big bulbs at HD!

I went Lowes today and I asked about when they are getting some in. The lady said very soon, maybe by next weekend. She even told me there will be different variety and new ones. We shall see.
