I have had many people ask if im doing another co-op for amaryllis this year and if there is the interest yes i will.I know i am not the only one that will do one but just opening the door for conversation. most of them would be same as last years first co-op and prices are about the same looking in to others but would like to here if there is interest in them. so LETS talk about it?? just bulbs or kits for gifts? any other bulbs ???

also am getting availability of spring bulbs and plants and yes its just July but never to soon is it??



Open for discussion!!!! Hurray! Hurray!

it looks like im going to be able to offer a bigger variety and at better prices anywhere with none of those unnecessary fees like co-op fees and a shipping scheduled fee

as always you will only pay what it actually costs to ship and can hold shipping to when you like it

hope to hear some great noise soon!!!

I missed your Amaryllis co-op last fall, but the pictures that I saw looked great!! I know nothing about them, other than they are gorgeous. The few bulbs I've gotten as gifts and I ended up killing after they bloomed, but I'd really like to try again, and maybe with the guidance of those of you more experienced, I can keep them alive longer than one blooming season!!

Just so all remember i giveFREE bulbs TO ALL ORDERS nodding nodding if you order during July or October Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing :rofl:when you like

I will have bulbs of great size and there I will include professional care instructions from the farmers that raise these brilliant bulbs, Do you know there are bulbs from Thailand now Yep thats correct. I will have doubles, miniatures, stripes, picotees, even exotic cybisters also ones that are forced to bloom at Christmas but also that bloom threw out the cold winter. New and old alike i sill give you a piece of candy eye candy that is one of the ones on the negotiation table that I am ready to order, I order early and locking so there will be SORRY there out of stock and always you can cancel at any time and i will refund all your money.

so free bulbs and bigger -better-different- you know my your co-op to be in Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

I am working hard on this one i am really trying to get the best for the least and i am doing in a CO-OP fashion and that is I WILL MAKE NO MONEY TO KEEP YOUR SAVINGS LOW MY PLEASURE TO DO THIS IS I GET THE SAME GREAT FLOWERS FOR THE SAME GREAT PRICES....


a piece of education for you all....co-op the person who runs the co-op makes no money, a business the owner has to make money to stay in business and a sale ( like i am doing on other plants i can make money and i can loose money)

i am so looking forward to this one!!!

pass the word

that makes sense due to they will be more cost effective i know some can come with pot and soil for it and i think some pots are nice but will cost more for sure.

Hi Mike,
No pots or boxes for me, just exotics and mini's --the more unusual the better.

I'll want some of these for sure, Mike, and I also don't need any kits. I'm selfish and I don't give any of my bulbs away. Green Grin!

ok got a few updates we are close to getting it all ready just a few things ....

Looks like NO ONE wants kits ....that is good the cost more and shipping is more If you want them i can tell you how to make them with bulk bulbs it is easy!!!

I think 90% of us are looking for new, unusual bulbs, So i am looking at them the most. I said before i have got all the ones from last year available at about the same prices. But we all have most of them, so i will list a few BUT if you know you missed a few and dont see it say something the min amount is not high.

I have Discussed with my consultant and looking at a compact list of the best new or new to us bulbs. I will only list one size. The best value But if you want the biggest ask ill look.

OMG i offer a lot of individual service Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Oh yea thats why I have a great ATP family and know who will be back in the next co-op ( I THANK ALL OF YOU)

Next I will point out there is different times these will bloom There are "Christmas Blooming Amaryllis" These are grown in the southern hemisphere which allows time to harvest and treat ( dark and cool) to set the bulb so you can receive them and plant them and they will bloom in 5-7 weeks

Then the Dutch Hybrid Bulbs and from some other places will bloom mid winter 8-12 weeks after being planted

Then there will beTrumpet Amaryllis(Slightly fragrant)Cybister Amaryllis these again mid winter 8-12 weeks after being planted

I will explain all of them in the co-op but if i separate that way I think it will be best all same co-op just so everyone knows when they can expect blooms and prices are different. I am trying to get only 3 different prices and not different for all.

A quick note on shipping From the bulb distributor to me they charge 10%-15% of the cost of the bulb for shipping for example if the bulb is 10.00 shipping for that is calculated as 1.00- 1.50 just fyi when you see the bulb prices. I DO NOT CHARGE YOU THAT most last year was best in flat rate boxes. i send the most cost effective way!!

now a little more Christmas candy

SOOO how are they looking IS your mouth watering Start saving your money NOW you will need to ....STOP BUYING PLANTS NOW SAVE FOR MY CO-OP Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
