Bulbs for pennies apiece

If you are looking to purchase flower bulbs on the cheap, it really pays to wait until mid-fall. The Van Engelen bulb company has just sent out an e-mail offering 40% off on all in-ground bulbs. This is far and away the cheapest way I know of to acquire a good quantity of high quality Dutch-grown bulbs. Some examples: 100 Iris reticulata for $10.05; Alliums for 6 cents and up; Fritillaria imperialis for $3.00. Minimum order $50. I've ordered from them for many years and have never been disappointed. Note: this is NOT a paid endorsement. Here's the link:
