Daffodil Bulbs Comparison

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.

    Comments about American Meadows Triumph Tulip Bulbs Candy Cane Mix:

    I planted these tulips last fall in ground that is not the best. They came up, survived a late Pennsylvania snow and freeze and still look lovely. My only regret is that I didn't purchase more.

      Comments about American Meadows Triumph Tulip Bulbs Candy Cane Mix:

      Very disappointed in the product. We ordered four bags so there were a total of 40 bulbs. This was supposed to be a mix of red, red with white highlights, and white. First, out of 40 bulbs only seven were white. Worse yet, there are none with even a hint of white highlights at the ends. Finally, they are not all the same height so my carefully planted "'beautiful" tulip bed looks ridiculous because there are random bulbs sticking up that are 6-8 inches taller than all the rest. This was my first experience with AM and may be my last.

      I bought these for my mom as a gift, so this review is really from her. But she loves them, she says the color is great, and were perfect for her front garden.

          I planted them late, but they still did great! Brilliant color, straight stems. The Candy Cane Mix looked great in my beds. It was the first time I have ever planted tulips.

            A neighbor stopped me yesterday to tell me how lovely my tulips were! Being in Zone 8, you don't see many tulips, since it's too much effort to dig and pre-chill. I had my doubts about planting Triumphs, but now I think these beauties are completly worth it! The deep reds are like velvet ribbon bows. The only draw-back is that the aphids love them as much as I do.

            USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

            To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

            • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
            • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
