Amaryllis Bargain

Category: Gardening | Posted: Mon Jan 12, 2015 1:48 pm

I've been watching some Christmas amaryllis bulbs at Walmart. They had a whole pallet of them and I knew they would never sell them all. They were $5.00, but I expected them to be marked down 50% after Christmas so I kept checking on them.

Anyway... I missed it. I went in today and they had sold them all for $1.25 over the weekend. I was bummed out until I saw some different amaryllis sitting outside. I scanned one and this is what I got.

.69 cents? ( photo / image / picture from eclecticgarden's Garden )
Needless to say, I bought five of them Actually, I bought four amaryllis. The other was a paperwhite that had six bulbs in it.

What a Bargain!! I hope they all grow well for you. You must show us them when they're in flower.

Extraordinarily good price, some bulb sellers are getting between $10-$20 for them.

I agree with the comment that they were extraordinally priced... but wait until you hear about my wife's find. I'll post it tomorrow and I guarantee that you won't believe it.
