I love lilies, and especially those huge, sturdy, fragrant new OT ("orienpet") hybrids! Although I'm all for a bargain, as you know if you're in on the group buy of lilies from ADR (see http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1295595/ for details), all the reviews I've read of B&D say you get what you pay for, and more, when you order from them. Plus, they are lily specialists. And they grow their own. So... I've never ordered from them before, but I think this is my "lily year," and I'm taking the plunge!
Is anybody else ordering from them this spring? What are you thinking of getting? Why are certain varieties on your wish list?
IF you'll be at the Mid-Atlantic Spring Plant Swap (May 18 at Jan's in NJ) or if you can swing by my home in Frederick after the bulbs arrive (in April), you are welcome to combine your order with mine to save on shipping. If we pick the same varieties, we might save an extra dollar here & there also on their multiple bulb discounts, but don't feel pressured to order what anybody else is ordering just for that. This isn't like the ADR lily order where we get big wholesale price breaks by ordering our lilies 25 bulbs at a time! Dmail me if you want to be part of this group order.
Please note that I really do NOT want to mail bulbs out. I'm too distracted these days to count on getting them out asap, and if they break dormancy they can be delicate to ship. You might still be able to split shipping if somebody else from your area posts that they're considering an order.
