Most species and varieties offered for sale may be purchased in “lots” of three
to five smaller non-flowering size bulbs to the equivalent weight of a large
flowering-size bulb at the same price as the latter. An excellent opportunity
to increase your stock. If required please indicate as “LOT” in the quantity
column of the order form.
Similarly, single, medium but not flowering-size bulbs may be purchased
at half the listed price of flowering-size bulbs. If required please indicate
as “MEDIUM” in the quantity column of the order form.
These are available in multiples of 10 subject to availability, we supply these for
most varieties at the cost of 20 for the listed price of a flowering-size bulb.
