Alright, here's the deal. I have some "Really Nice" Size 9-11 Jack's Giant Elephant Ear bulbs available. A 9-11 bulbs is about the size of a "real nice" baseball.
I haven't put them on the website yet but when I do they will list for $8.95 a bulb. I'm going to offer them first to my friends here on ATP for $4.00 a bulb.
I am going to use the Regional Flat Rate boxes from the USPS to ship them. I know I can get 5 bulbs in an "A Box" and probably 10-12 bulbs in the "B Box"
Shipping is priced according to Zip Code

If you are interested in some, Email me at: CaladiumBulbs4Less@earthlink.net
Put ATP JG Special in Subject Line. Include your name and the zip code where I'll be shipping bulbs to and I will in turn reply with a total cost for the order

I will accept orders for this particular special through next Sunday (3/15/15) Promo Ends at 11:59 PM EDT

I would prefer payments be made via PayPal (I will send you an invoice from my end). If you don't have a PayPal account that's OK, I will accept Personal checks or Money Order.
I would rather not have to process credit card payments but if I have to I guess I can, especially if you'd like a bunch of bulbs.....lol... There is a $15.00 Minimum for Credit Card Orders, sorry!!
I have access to 1500 of these bad boys so don't hold back!!! Tell your friends and neighbors!!!
My buddy grows the BEST Jack's Giants of any commercial grower and that's a fact!!! You WILL NOT be disappointed in these bulbs!!!!

I will ship according to weather conditions too. Elephant Ear bulbs are a little hardier than caladiums are but they don't like real cold temperatures either.
You guys know how I am in regards to shipping!! I need to see your Lows at least 45 degrees while the bulbs are in transit

Spring is Only 12 days away!!!


Happy Gardening!!!

I brought in 500 of these bulbs yesterday and they are absolutely awesome bulbs!!! They are Size 9 - 11 bulbs with the vast majority being closer to the 11" size(circumference of bulb).
I took an A box and I was able to fit 4 really nice bulbs in it. I could do 5 bulbs but one or two would be a normal 9-11
I was able to get a dozen in the B Box

I really should have waited a week or two before doing this special because I'm busier than a one armed paper hanger right now!!! And that's putting it mildly!!
I'm not ignoring anyone if you've emailed me. I'm going to go through all the emails I've received sometime today and tomorrow and I'll be getting back to you.
Please bear with me!!

They sure are gorgeous plants and what a great price for those huge bulbs! I've seen these advertised at $17.00 to $19.00 per bulb or for a tiny 3" pot (+ shipping!) so this is a terrific value!

Sighing! I sure wish I had space for one but my yard is really small. Sad

Not speaking for Bill here, but if you have a master gardener group or local plant club that is doing a plant sale, Bill can probably offer you a bulk shipping option on these if you got a lot of them. They'd make great additions to your plant sales.

Dave is absolutely right!!!
My buddy has a bunch of them too. I'm basically giving them to you right now for $4.00 a bulb but if you wanted a bunch(say 40 bulbs) I'll come down to $3.50 a bulb
The bulbs average a little over a pound each. I'll ship larger orders via UPS.

I'm only offering this deal thru Sunday night too. I know a few of you have emailed me and are still waiting for a response from me. I haven't forgotten you!!!!

It's 12:25 on a Friday afternoon and I'm going to be going home in a few minutes. The orange trees are in full bloom right now and my head feels like it's going to explode!!!!...
So, unfortunatley the emails are going to have to wait at least one more day, sorry.. Sighing!

Just to put my two cents in, Bill has wonderful bulbs. I have ordered from him often over the years and have always been over the moon with the beautiful plants from his bulbs.

This is why he is so busy. His bulbs are in high demand and we are very lucky that he offers his bulbs to us at such low prices.

I still have some. I've just been SUPER, SUPER busy the past 2 weeks and haven't checked ATP as frequently as normal.
I'm going to be working on ATP orders and invoicing this week-end sometime.
Email me instead of tree mailing me... It's the best way to get my attention!!!

The Jack's Giants I got from Bill last year did great all season long. Then they went dormant over the winter and this spring they are back and doing very well. The ears today are already about 12 inches long.
