Bushels of Bulbs  (Spring)
Bushels have no set count as they contain all sizes of bulbs. It is difficult to estimate what is in each full bushel. On average a full bushel contains approximately 300-350 bulbs.  See descriptions below for average bulb count and size range.

Bushels of Bulbs

Great Value!

We offer the following limited spring-planted varieties of bulbs in bushel and half-bushel quantities, as a very economical way for you to plant masses of blooms.  Excellent for naturalizing, perennializing or for large informal plantings or meadows, they are available in full or half bushels. 

These are what's known as "field run" bulbs.  We can't give you an exact count as as they are comprised of all sizes that will bloom reliably.  But we guaranty that they will be of a size that will bloom.  

Since the size of the flower is directly related to the size of the bulbs, if you desire bulbs for more formal plantings (in your flower beds), we suggest that you purchase our largest sized bulbs shown on our main pages. See the following links for our largest sized bulbs:  Hostas (Royal Standard & Mixed Colors), Japanese Iris Ensata (Rising Sun), CaladiumsAsiatic Lilies or Liriope Spicata).

Quanties of 5 bushels and over are discounted.  Email us at customerservice@marysgardenpatch.com for prices.
