Just to put some teasers out about this. If there is enough interest we may do one again.

*********************************************I M P O R T A N T **********************

When I started doing Co-ops some 10 years ago, we had about 150 participants and got some great discounts from my suppliers that we used to create some great prices for y'all.

So far we have (6) Updated 1 -2 -2017....we now have 13 people who are interested, so you can see we need a few more. At 30 participants I will start working on a list of about 40 different varieties in different types.

Go get them!

13 PARTICIPANTS IS NOT ENOUGH FOR ME TO BUY A COUPLE OF THOUSAND LILIES AND NOT GET STUCK WITH A LOT OF THEM, SO THIS CO-OP IS A NO-GO!

I ONLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY, AS IT SEEMS THAT PEOPLE RATHER PAY $ 17.00 FOR 5 LILY BELLONICA THEN PAY ME $ 8.OO OR RATHER PAY $ 12.00 FOR 5 LILY SALMON STAR THEN PAY ME $ 3.75

SO I AM THE BENEFICIARY OF A MUCH BETTER ECONOMY AND PEOPLE HAVE MORE MONEY TO SPEND THEN IN THE PAST.

IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE SERVING Y'ALL DURING THESE YEARS AND I SIGN OFF WITH

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND HAPPY GARDENING

THE DUTCH LILY TEAM

The deer discovered those I planted last year and I never got to see them bloom. Sad I dug around recently and considering there had been no foliage to feed them, a couple of the bulbs actually look good. Can these few be transplanted this time of year to my son's home in a colder (z6) climate? He does not have to deal with deer.

No on Mona Lisa, but yes on the other 3.

We do need more participants though and then I will work up the list.

We stopped doing the Calla lily co-op because of lack of interest. I wonder why no one is interested in co-ops with good prices?
