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.
