Description
Here's a wonderful new mixture we've put together because everyone asked for it. It's the No. 1 miniature daffodil, "Tete a Tete", along with vivid blue grape hyacinths. Together, this is probably one of the most colorful groundcovers ever.

These two beauties just happen to bloom at exactly the same time, so the contrast of the two colors is assured, and since they're both dependably perennial, they'll be back every year. So plant a place, and make magic with our Early Spring Delight Mix. You'll love it.

    I bought these last year and planted them in pots I'd been collecting. I gave them as gifts to many of my friends. They have brightened many decks and patios this long and wet winter. It's been fun getting the "My bulbs are blooming!" phone calls. And now the bulbs can be planted out in fields, gardens and hillsides. No wrapping paper, things to return or unwanted calories. The perfect gift!

    I still only have the leaves with no flowers. I only had one daffodil come up. The leaves are about 2 inches long and have stopped growing. The leaves of all the hyacinths are up but have been waiting for flowers for several weeks now. I would have thought it was still a little early, but all my tulips have already bloomed, and I thought these would have bloomed first. I have been happy with other products, but disappointed in these.

      I planted them as a ground cover . It would have made a lovely ground cover but the grape hyacinths
      Were eaten before they could mature and bloom. I have a deer and rabbit problem , don't know which ate them.
      Not critter proof.

            Comments about American Meadows Early Spring Delight Bulb Mix:

            These were planted rather haphazardly in a raised bed (I had a shoulder injury that limited my movement.) Despite this, every bulb came up and the little flowers were beautiful. I planted them behind overwintering pansies, so that made a nice color combination. The daffodils bloomed before the grape hyacinths, so I got a one-two punch rather than the combination I was expecting, but that is OK. When I put in more flower beds, I will get some more.

                        We have a newly landscaped front yard. This bulb mix is perfect because the flowers do not dwarf the small shrubs behind them. We are enjoying the second years worth of beauty from a half hours worth of initial labor.

                          They're beautiful, make a nice and colorful combination. They not only come back year after year, but multiply as well. They thrive in a formal garden, as well as planted under trees in more woodsy areas. And, best of all, they are deer, rabbit and squirrel resistant!

                          What is a "Quality Bulb," and Why Does Bulb Quality Matter?

                          Flower bulbs come in a wide variety of sizes. It is important to get the largest, best quality bulbs you can find. Larger bulbs help to ensure success, producing larger and stronger plants with more flowers.

                          Several flower bulbs are part of the onion family, and because of this I like to use Onions as a representation of how important bulb size is. Which of the onions on your shelf go bad first? The smallest ones! Larger onions are more resilient, taking longer to dry out/rot and can withstand swings in temperature better. Flower bulbs are the same. Larger bulbs will withstand disease, draught, large amounts of moisture, and colder temperatures significantly better than the smaller ones.

                          Here at American Meadows we are committed to providing you with the highest quality bulbs. This means we do everything we can to source the largest bulbs possible. Below is a comparison of bulbs purchased from three different retail stores:

                          Each of the glass tubes contains 20 Dutch Master Daffodils. Starting from the left, the first tube is what is sold here at American Meadows, the middle tube was purchased at a local “Home Supply” box store, and the third is another online retailer. The difference is easily noticeable.

                          The next picture is the same comparison, but with Tulip Bulbs:

                          Again, our bulbs are quite a bit larger than other retailers.

                          Other things to be aware of when it comes to bulb quality is making sure they are firm and without signs of external damage or cracking. Do your best to avoid bulbs that are already growing and have shoots or freshly grown roots. This is difficult when purchasing online, but if you are ordering through a reputable company, they should be checking for these things regularly.

                          Next time you are looking to buy bulbs, think about how much time you put into planning and planting your garden and then anxiously waiting for your flowers to grow and bloom. Don’t be disappointed after all that effort by planting sub-par bulbs. Buy the largest, firmest, disease free bulbs you can afford, and you will have the best possible results.
