For some time now we have run separate seed and bulb schemes, but we have decided now is the time to combine them. Therefore if you require bulbs for any season please now purchase them from Dobies.
This will simplify ordering both for members and for the Society, and also means that deliveries come straight to you rather than to the Society for distribution, so you will get the bulbs quicker. And of course Dobies offers Society members a 15% discount for bulbs, the same as the former bulb scheme. In addition, the Society is credited with your orders making it easier to maintain the levels of discount we currently enjoy.
Dobies’ main Autumn catalogue has a section devoted to spring bulbs, and the present Summer Plant catalogue has several pages of Summer Bulbs which you will need to purchase now if you require them for the coming summer. In addition there is usually a small bulb and late perennial catalogue in about August. For those who order online, there is the usual comprehensive selection there, and keep an eye out for the new spring bulb offers that will become available later in the year.
Our thanks go to Denise Beard, the Seed Scheme organiser, and Louise Buckle, the Bulb Scheme organiser.
