Fallen bullb bargain?

Friends of Old Bulbs Gazette <A HREF="http://www.oldhousegardens.com /"> Old House Gardens</A>, 536 Third St., Ann Arbor, MI 48103, (734) 995-1486     WHERE’S  MY ORDER?         Shipping started September 27 and it’s going great! We’re currently shipping orders that arrived here the second week of August, and we expect to deliver every order currently in hand by the end of October.     IT’S NOT TOO LATE to Order Your Best Spring Ever!         We’ll be shipping bulbs through November 5, at least, and we’d love to send you some! Here in zone 5/6 we routinely plant past Thanksgiving, six weeks from now, and you may have even more time left. But please ORDER NOW! We don’t want you to be one of those sad gardeners calling here in mid-November, ready to plant, only to find our barn is empty.     GET FREE BULBS From Our Big Spill When You Order Now!         Last month a whole pallet full of bulb-crates tipped off the back of a FedEx truck and into the street outside our barn. Crates broke open and thousands of daffodil bulbs mixed hopelessly together. But every cloud has a silver lining: we’re offering you a bag of 15 mixed, unlabeled daffodils free when you order at least $50 worth of any other bulbs for delivery this fall. Depending on what you get, that’s a value of anywhere from $17 to $97! Order $100 and we’ll send you two bags; for $150 you’ll get three, and so on.         Daffodils in the mix include Colleen Bawn (regularly $6.50 each), Dreamlight, Geranium, Laurens Koster, Little Gem, Ornatus, pheasant’s-eye (N. poeticus recurvus), Shot Silk, and W.P. Milner. All will thrive in zones 6 and 7, and most will do fine in zones 5 and 8a, too. To get them, just type “Big Spill bulbs, please” into the feedback box when you order online, or mention it by phone or mail. But when they’re gone, they’re gone, so don’t delay!     WEB-ONLY TREASURES for You or Someone Very Special!         For dozens of spectacular tulips so rare we couldn’t offer them in our print catalog, look for those highlighted with purple bars at<A HREF="http://www.oldhousegardens.com/bulb.asp?Cat=TU "> http://www.oldhousegardens.com/bulb.asp?Cat=TU </A>.         Be the only gardener in your city, county, or state to grow these fabulous living jewels!
