How Many Spring Bulbs Have You Ordered?

nutsaboutflowers(2b/3a)September 14, 2010

I have 130 spring bulbs on order. I keep adding to my existing orders when I decide there's more I'd like to have.

I'm not even sure now what all I'm getting.

I need to stop looking at bulb catalogues as I'm wondering where I'm going to put them all.

Anyone else having a problem stopping?

Or, does everyone else already have that many?

I wonder.....have I lost control ??? LOL

I think everyone on this site is out of control. I know I am. I think I have about 300 bulbs on order (I have lost count of the exact number). I also ordered fifteen new roses for spring delivery this morning. I have no idea where I am going to plant all these things, they just looked so pretty in the catalogs and they really weren't too expensive. I am fairly tight on room in my gardens as it is. Oops. I try to explain to my husband that a plant addiction is much cheaper than a drug habit but I am probably going to require professional intervention.

Planted about 150 on the weekend. I bought one of those bulb planters and it's completely destroyed.

I did not order any this year.
Instead I am going to the garden centers and buying according to the size and condition of the bulbs.
So I found large lily bulbs so far.
I would like some 14cm tulip bulbs, but so far have not found any.

990...egads. It could be a colossal success or an enormous failure. Keep your fingers crossed!

Didn't order too many. Have to make more flower beds. Ordered some Martagons and fancy tulips. Next year I can go full steam ahead if I can dig up some beds
