Last fall, I bought 40 bulbs from different dealers on the market. Took about an hour of trolling through the market looking for the colours that I wanted to put in my garden. At one market I bought 36 bulbs 3 of each solid colour. I also bought 4 x Amaryllis in four different colours from another stall. This spring all my Amaryllis came up about a month ago and they were ALL red. I was pretty perturbed about this but it is what it is, right, no... All 40 tulips have come up and they are ALL yellow! This was the first time I have ever bought loose bulbs from the market. Do not buy loose bulbs!
The Dahlia's that I bought that were bagged were the only thing correct. So stick to bagged and packaged goods from the market.
