Bulk Bulbs – Nothing says spring like a field of naturalized daffodils or a flower bed filled with brightly colored tulips. Glen Echo Nurseries has those bulbs and many more from traditional to truly unique! Spring-blooming bulbs always put on a great show, brightening chilly grey days with their vivid, paint-box colors. Summer-blooming bulbs produce some of the garden’s biggest and most spectacular flowers. In winter, amaryllis bulbs produce huge, brilliantly-colored blossoms indoors with nothing more than water and a little sunshine. And let’s not forget that garlic is best planted in the fall to enjoy in your favourite dishes next summer.
Flower bulbs are perfectly packaged for easy planting. Just dig a hole and drop in the bulb. Most bulbs aren’t very particular about where they are planted. They will grow as well in pots and containers, as they do in flower gardens, beneath trees and shrubs and in woodlands, meadows and even lawns. Planting flower bulbs doesn’t require any special knowledge or experience.
Nature has provided flowering bulbs with everything they need to survive and thrive. When a bulb starts to grow, it uses these stored reserves to develop roots, shoots, leaves and flowers. Being so self-sufficient means that flower bulbs don’t have to wait for the perfect weather or ideal soil conditions. Just make sure they roots are down & wait to see them bloom in spring.
Please see the list below for a variety of bulbs available at Glen Echo. We have so many Tulip Bulbs – it has its own list. Please see the separate list for Tulip Bulbs.
