Dahlias and Summer bulbs……on sale NOW!

If you are in the market for dahlias, daylilies, glad bulbs, hostas, peonies, clematis and MORE, get yourself over to Costco and check out the bags and bags and bags of bulbs.

I scored two bags of dahlias, 11 tubers per bag, $10.99 each. And here is the bargain of the week: I bought a bag of echinaceas, the new hybrid ‘Sundown’, with 7 starts for $10.99. At $1.57 each, that is a huge savings. If these were potted up into one gallon pots, you would pay $8.95 to 12.95 per pot. Well worth the effort to put them in the ground and see what happens. If the ground is frozen, just pot them up in one gallon black plastic pots and bring them along until the first of May when they can be popped in the ground.
