      The Daffodils were great as cut flowers. Beautiful color. The pinks did not show up at all but with the other lovely flowers it did not matter so much. A couple of these just popped up this week.

      Iris were stunning. Read another review here and put them up front because they are short.

      Anemones were beautiful. I still have some blooming!

      The starflowers were luminous. I have to get some more this Fall.

          I just wanted to update my review from May 2012. Sad to say, this year my daffodils gave me 1 flower. The irises did not flower at all and looked like I just had floppy green weeds growing in my pinestraw bed. Of course, since the anemones did not make an appearance last year, I didn't expect them to show up this year.

          Comments about American Meadows Deer Resistant Collection - Collection of 35:

          I'm disappointed that I took the time to plant so many of these bulbs in my front yard's bed. They were not the show stopper I was expecting. I saw a couple of irises actually bloom, but they were too short to be seen unless I stood directly over the pinestraw-covered bed (my fault for not realizing they were so short). The daffodils bloomed a little but had a pale peach color (not pink) and were not as vibrant and pretty as I expected. I've seen no sign of the anemones or the tulips, which is surprising since spring came early and it's been so warm here in SC. I know spring is technically only half way over so maybe they will come up still--who knows.

          As an FYI, I have naturally sandy soil but I mixed in mushroom compost to give the bulbs more nutrients. I also am sure I followed the light and planting requirements.

            planted in the fall, so much fun to see things pop up where you forgot (no i do not make records of where things are!)
            that you planted anything. Everyday something new is blooming.
            The deer have not eaten these!

            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.
