hi,

I just bought some cheap hardy geraniums from Michiganbulbs.com

They are sold in 3s for $9.99 so every plant is $3.33. Very good price as I got one HG from the garden center and it cost $11.

They even have a double flower variety.

You have to order soon as they stop shipping before the middle of June.

Thumbs up

I have never ordered from them, I had heard that their reputation wasn't too good. How are the plants you ordered? Did they arrive in good condition? For that price it might be worth checking them out.

Lola, I wish you luck with these. I ordered two collections from them last year. Both came bare root. Less than half of them ever sprouted. I do have one variety that I got from them 3 years ago that I quite like. I'd like to have more of them, but they don't offer it now and neither does anyone else. it seems to be an unregistered cultivar that no one has ever heard of.

Just dropping back in here again. Lola, how did you make out with those geraniums?

I'd love to hear how they're doing, too. It's always good to hear when a place with a bad reputation has turned around and is doing good. I do hope that's the case here.

I'd love to see some pictures if any of them bloomed this year, too!!
