Yipppeeee- Costco tulip bulbs have arrived

I've just been to Costco today and they have arrived. I got 6 bags of 50 tulips each. 100 of two varieties and 50 of another. I would have gotten another bag of 50 but the display was up against another display and I couldn't get to it. They must have just gotten them in.

For anyone who hasn't tried their tulips bulbs - they are awesome. And 50 of them cost 8.67, an excellent price.

Does anyone remember when Costco cell lily bulbs?
Maureen, I agree, excellent price and quality. They also have daffodils, irises and other spring bulbs.

Costco sells lilies in a fall and in a spring.
Lilies usually come to the shelves in mid-late October, because they are not harvested till September.
Whatever you'll see in September would be a last year leftovers.

Their in-store prices are better than on-line ones. Besides mentioned above $8.67 bags they have 100 tulip and 75 daffodil bulbs for less than $12 now.

We don't even have a Costco, LOL! Considering the price of gas, I don't think the 3 1/2 hour drive to Denver would be worth it :)

Those 75 daffs/$12 are very small bulbs.
Wait intill mesh bags of 100/$15-17 arrive. Those usually of good size and quality.

I snapped up a mesh bag of 100 red Darwin Hybrid tulips at Sam's last week. They also had daffs. They were gone when I went today. I guess the word is out.

Just in case anyone's interested in:
I bought huge 14+cm Darwin hybrid and Single Late tulip bulbs (so-called 'perennial tulips') at local Home Depot today. The price is $5.97 for 8 bulbs. The bulbs look firm and healthy . All other tulips are 11-12cm there.

Johnny's Seeds has a small selection of 14cm tulips starting at $6.25 for 10 and going down from there for greater quantities. I bought some 14cm Pink Impressions from them last year and the blooms were enormous.

The Costco Tulip bulbs are all 12cm+, and all the ones I've bought so far have been quite healthy, just as nice as the ones from Van Engelen, B&B's, and other quality mail order houses.

Just wanted to mention that Costco got more bulbs in. Today I bought 20 Hyacinth (10 Blue Jacket, 10 City of Haarlem) for $8.79; 50 Tulips (25 Creme Upstar and 25 Mount Tacoma) for $8.79; and 50 Tulip Silverstream for $8.79. There were a lot of other kinds of tulips and lots of other bulbs.

Now I just have to find time to plant them, the 200+ bulbs I already bought from local places and the 300+ bulbs that Scheeper's is shipping to me next week... :o)
