Mixed Flower Bulbs; Size Comparison
Our website attempts to help gardeners understand the importance of size when buying bulbs. Big bulbs produce stronger plants and more flowers. It's helpful to factor this into the price/quality equation to get an accurate picture of garden value.
But what do those size measurements really mean? What should you expect when bulbs are described as 7-8 cm? Or as 22-24 cm?
Below is a group shot of nine different types of fall flower bulbs with their respective circumference measurements noted. From tiny oxalis bulbs (yes, this is as large as they get) to burly belladonna lilies here are some visuals to help you picture what to expect in your order.
Flower bulbs come in a wonderful variety of sizes, shapes, colors and textures.
