Spring bulbs

slwslw Posts: 14

Yes- already planning next year's bulbs. They are a bit thin on the ground this year as rats took a fancy to many of them. They were particularly partial to the tulips. I saw Monty on one of the Gardeners' World programmes recommending online ordering- he seems to buy them in 100's without the fancy packaging.Can anybody suggest spring bulb mail order catalogues which are reasonably priced? 

Thanks in advance,

Sarah(hoping next year's spring bulbs will fair better without Mr Ratty gorging himself)

    Do you really think MD worries about the cost?

    I have found Parkers to be reliable for spring flowering bulbs in quantity. The only time I had a few that were substandard, they sent another pack out without a quibble.

    Point taken. He is not 'MD' for nothing is he!

    That's a moot point. image

  • Peter Nyssen  -  always good quality, been using them for about 40 years, never a problem!  Fair prices too. Christopher LLoyd recommended them in one of his books and I've used them ever since.
