buying spring bulbs
« on: August 26, 2018, 11:48 »
did I hear rite when Monty said on G/W Friday there was going to be a shortage of spring bulbs this year because i.ve seen quite a number of bulbs for sale in many places


and we have recived some bulb catalogues with no limmited stock so is there going to be a suden rush for bulbs over the next few weeks should i go out and buy my bulds asap will there be people comming out of the garden centres this weekend with trollies full of bulbs?

I think there may be a shortage, Peter Nysson sold out of blue Anemone Blanda already - but has that just been made worse by Monty commenting on it?  ::)

I went to Spalding auction house last week & there seemed plenty of bulbs but it was the first time Iíd been so nothing to compare it with.
P.s anyone can go & Wednesday is auction day for the veg, that was well worth the visit, I felt very sorry for the growers, so little money for all their efforts

I think Monty was making   the point of the reality of the impact of this very dry summer.  Unfortunately some people see this as a dig at him , if he says nothing , why isn't he reporting it and when he does , that's wrong as well.

I asked about the impact of the weather  at our poultry feed supplier and they confirmed that price rises were possible and some supplies could be affected.
we also rescue rabbits and guinea pigs,grow own veg

I don't think we were implying he was wrong to talk about it - I just wondered if him doing so had, indeed, caused the already low stock levels, of some of the more popular bulbs - to be sold already?
