I know... too early. But . . .

Brent and Becky's just opened up order for fall planted items.

Given the current 'problems' acquiring caladium this year, I propose that we start to consider what kinds of bulbs we want to get this fall.

Many sites have opened up their fall ordering, or will soon.

In fact, Brent and Beck'ys has two specials. Orders placed by July 1, 2018 get 5% off. Paid orders placed by July 1, 2018 get 10% off the order.

For example, the elusive Amaryllis Dutch 'Barbados' that was sold out in August/September is now available through ADR Bulbs. (My price is $79/10, but Jill ( @Critterologist ) may be able to get a better price with her connections.) But, Apple Blossom,Lemon Star and Rosita are already sold out.

Keep in mind that when buying bulbs, etc. wholesale, they do have minimum quantities. However, we have been quite successful in the past with people calling 'dibs' on enough small quantities to meet those requirements.

To aide in this, I'm setting up a 'swap', bulbs will be separated by vendor. The quantities 'available' will be the mininum purchase quantities. If an item 'sells out', another lot can be added. (Jill, this should take the pressure off of you trying to organize everything with so much else going on in life.)

I''l let you know when the swap it set up.

As time goes by, if anyone wants anything added, let me know and I can add it.

If the past, we have done group buys from:
ADR Bulbs (New York) - https://www.adrbulbs.com/
Brent and Becky's Bulbs (Virginia) - https://brentandbeckysbulbs.com/
K vanBourgondien (Ohio) - https://www.dutchbulbs.com/
van Engelen (Connecticut) - https://www.vanengelen.com/
