Last week at Costco (a big-box, warehouse type store that requires membership if you shop there) I noticed large bags of bulbs. Yellow "King Alfred" daffodils at 100 for $14.99, bags of tulips, hyacinths - nothing uncommon, just "the usual suspects." My question - all these discount places, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, etc - seem able to have spring flowering, fall planted bulbs available for sale way earlier than mail order vendors can ship. How come?
