7 reasons to buy bulbs in Lidl
I tried several types of Lidl bulbs: tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, anemones, among others, and in this article I’m featuring 7 reasons to buy bulbs in Lidl.
To make it clear at the beggining, this site has no partnership with Lidl, its suppliers or any bulb seller or producer.
Yes, I’m here doing free advertising. In this case, I am sharing my experience in order to help those who read us, I would like to say that Lidl bulbs are good, in fact, they are excellent.
Spring flowering bulbs are usually sold between September and November and here is the list of why you should buy these bulbs:
Bulbs are well cataloged
We did not find a single bulb that was poorly cataloged or inserted incorrectly in the package. All the bulbs we bought were true to the variety indicated on the package label.
The bulbs are well stored until the moment of purchase. The time passed between the departure from the producer until the availability of the bulbs in the store must be very short.
Often, when the bulbs are not stored properly, they develop fungi that reduce or eliminate the bulb’s ability to grow. It is a huge frustration when we plant these bulbs and they simply rot in the soil.
As a result of this high turnover and a well-organized logistics chain, the bulbs arrive fresh at the store. More than that, the bulbs are from this year.
I have seen bulbs on sale in other stores that were clearly from previous years. That is, these bulbs kept in the package for more than a year have already spent a lot of energy just to remain able to survive. They will not have the vigor that allows them to grow with strength to blossom.
Lidl bulbs are typically very competitively priced when compared to garden centers or online selling sites.
You can find lower prices online if you are looking for a specific type of variety and want to buy on a large scale for a large border, for example.
Many varieties available
The varieties available are vast, which allows the gardener to experiment and create mixtures of colors and textures. Tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, the hard part is choosing because you will want to bring everything.
You can be faithful to a design with varieties that you know have worked in previous years, or you may want to try different combinations and have a new show each year.
The supplier also offers bulb combinations that go well together. For the beginners in gardening, this is an excellent help to create a beautiful and harmonious effect even if you don’t know much about garden design.
Here is an example of a combination we tried. Check how we planted Tulipa ‘stunning apricot’ and Narcissus ‘pink charm’ and how it resulted.
For plant lovers, it is hard to resist including a bulb pack when shopping for groceries. It is the escape, the “treat” for yourself when buying toilet paper, rice or toothpaste … either way, you can continue to bring chocolate too.
I believe that there are other supermarket chains that have similar offers. If you know of other cases similar to Lidl, leave us your comment at the end of the article. If you disagree with this article, tell us why.
But if you think the same, that these bulbs are worth it, share the idea with your friends on social media: “Next time you go to Lidl, bring some bulbs too!” Anyone can plant bulbs.
