Walked into Walmart last night and just inside found a $1.00 bin full of Daffodils, Crocus and Tulips. Packages of 9 and 18. I am not sure where I am gong to plant them as I planted 48 Daffodils earlier this week. I just could not pass them up. Any other fall finds out there?

I never buy plants at a lumber yard or hardware store. In any case,
it's a bit late to plant spring bulbs in my area.

frozen.

Up State New York is where I learned to love spring bulbs. The first crocus meant it might soon be warm. Where are you upstate?

so far just several cases of canning jars for free.

i avoid buying these types of plants/bulbs as they
often are not stored in anything even close to decent
conditions. examining them often finds dried or damaged
bulbs. some may grow out ok, but those that are dried
up too much won't do much other than be a source of
organic material for the soil critters.

if your ground doesn't freeze deeply you should be ok
planting winter bulbs up until the end of December (but for
best growth it is better to plant them earlier).

Err...I respect your empathy for "those poor little things" and I hope they bloom up a storm come Spring.

But I don't buy in Walmart because of their horrible reputation about treating personnel like s**t. I guess I'll just keeping buying at the nabe nursery where they know their *** from their elbow.

They're the same packaged bulbs sold everywhere only for a lot more
money than the big box stores.

Our on again, off again lib-er-al seems to have it right this time.

The global retailer is a "net job destroyer" when it arrives in
communities.

every job gained, 1.4 jobs are lost."
