Orders are in for a few tulips abd lots more daffs and some crocus.
I will get some things from Brent and Becky plus a Scheepers order as soon as their fall cat comes out.

I'm not ordering much besides hyacinths this year. I just have to have them for the house.

How many thousands are you getting Patti? How has your success been with ADR? True to name?

Brent & Beckies have thier spring and fall catalogs up --

https://store.brentandbeckysbulbs.com/spring/

Seems early for the fall catalog but maybe that is only because it still feels like winter outside around here. And I order bulbs from them every year. Love their stuff.

Jo Anne, where did you order from?

I order from B&B, Colorblends, Scheepers (or Van Engelen) and a bunch of other places myself. I haven't seriously started to plan what I will get for fall though as I plan after (or during) my spring blooms so I can see what I planted the years before and what I might want to add.

I was looking up allium Silver Spring.I bought 5 bulbs fall of 2011 and last spring was rewarded with beauties.
I checked the prices.J Scheepers was around $5 per bulb in 2011.
I dont think they are available this year but WFF is asking $10.00 per bulb and High Country Gardens is $ 18.00 per bulb.
If those prices are any indication of their general pricing I doubt I would ever order from them.Holicow.

Jo Ann ---you are just too far ahead of some of us.
Here we are still on Spring 2013!

But I want to watch for peonies and martagon lilies this coming fall.
They both seem to be more available then.
