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.

These started blooming about 2 weeks ago and are still going strong. They started out looking a little more pink and yellow but gradually have come into their full stunning color. I didn't realize they would be as tall as they are--mine are a good 20 inches. I love watching people pause on their walks to admire them in my front yard!

    Comments about American Meadows Single Late Tulip Bulbs World Expression:

    These tulips grew beautifully. They were drop dead gorgeous, completely breathtaking. They were also LONG LASTING! I really appreciated that. Nearly 3 weeks long during early spring. I don't know yet if these are annual or perennials, but I am waiting and hoping that they will greet me next spring. Definitly recommend these to be planted all over. I read some people commenting that the white is not so white but yellow. I had mixed results. To me it seemed those growing under shade were white and those under the sun had a yellow tinge as time went on. These variations did not bother me, both colors are equally pretty.

        I ordered tulips and daffodils from four suppliers last fall. About eight varieties. These were the standouts of the group, by far.

                  World Expression Tulips are a great accent in the front of my garden bed with a backdrop of rainbow knock-out roses. They bloomed after the other tulips had faded and have been eye-catching flowers at the end of April.

                  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).
