I have had a few request for a co-op for Fall planting bulbs Daffodills are #1 request

i would like to know if anyone out there like to have this co-op up and running?
If you do please give me any ideas of what you are looking for and if you can the quantity due to some of my min orders are 100 bulbs or more
I have had one pers0ont tell me she is looking for a mix and inexpencive and mabe even buy a bag of 250 herself
anouther like a smaller assorted and a list she gave to start looking is this

I like any that are part of the jonquil family. pretty doubles would be good too!

Tahiti,
Erlicheer
Unique
Intrigue
Flower Parade
Scarlet Chord
Abba
Franciscus Drake
Smoky Bear
Mary Copeland
Broadway Star (and other Butterfly narcissus)

Prefer the doubles, frangrants

I can do as others and just pick out some and hope you all are happy with them but they are not going in my garden i would like you to tell me you likes and wants and ill try to match them

please leave comments and questions and I will respond to them
one more important thing is are you forcing in bulbs for in pot flowers OR planting them outside for spring blooms

Amaryllis ARE LISTED HERE The thread "Amaryllis Co-Op for the Holidays!! NEW Bulbs Exotic, Trumpet, Cybister Chefmike" in Classifieds and Group Buys forum

looked and cant find very many of your names. I have found a VERY LARGE variety of double and they are saying these are fragrant. there are mixes in bags of 50 bulbs range about 30.00 so if you want doubles and fragrant give me an idea of your favorite colors and if you like to get a mix an some range in the 1.00 range per bulb we will need to work back and forth to see what we can come up with

when colors are ill post pics and prices then we will try to if you can give me a idea on price and amount helps also.

Mike, doubles of any color are fabulous. The jonquil (small trumpet, like paperwhites) are fabulous as well.

A mixed bag 50 for $30 is better than anything I've found. I can get several of the named on ebay or classifieds. Lovey dubby

Because of our weird planting season, probably within the next month. Most places ship by now for northern planters, but our winter is much much shorter.

there is still plenty of time for the northern states to plant the soonest is when they ground cools around mid September threw October 6-8 weeks brfore the ground freezes.

Well hope we can get a few others to join. YOU can also grow in pots buy forcing them.

i will order these soon i will not do a whole co-op i will just take individual orders unless we can get a larger crowd. there are about 230 daffodils 200 tulips and who knows how many other bulbs

please join in and spread the word!!

I'd be interested in any tulips, daffs, and crocus and such. Maybe some fritallaria too? Any colors, mixes, or whatever would be ok by me.

I would love to see your list and prices. And because It is best not to plant most bulbs until the ground at planting depth is less than 60 degrees there is lots of time yet. I see better results with a late Oct or Nov planting as long as the ground isn't frozen solid. I planted a mess of Narcissus that I got once in late Jan for a terrific price. We planted them as soon as we had a thaw in early Feb. They all came up, but very late which was nice, but they reverted to their correct bloom cycle the next year. They didn't miss a beat. Thanks, Patti
