Where to buy gladiolus bulbs in Wash, DC area?

jlgreg(z6b MD)February 23, 2006


I live in the DC metro area and would like to know if there's a good local source of gladiolus bulbs. I mail ordered a few last year and really enjoyed them. I've ordered some more for this year, but I'd also like to find more interesting varieties and patronize local businesses at the same time.

Costco has quite a few right now. Not just plain jane ones, either - though I didn't look closely as I'm not a glad fan.

if you're in MD, and want a loval garden cntr, why not try Behnke's? it's the big one in PG (and they have a Montgomery location, as well.)

Here is a link that might be useful: Behnke Nursery

Thanks for the reminder heyruthie7, I always go to Behnke's or Homestead. I guess I was hoping there were other decent sources. I tried a few nurseries this weekend and of course Behnke's was the only one with a decent selection of gladiolas. Came back from there with a couple more bags of bulbs.
