Spring bulbs in Lidl

12 September 2017 22:05:30

I was in our local Lidl today and lots of spring bulbs have arrived.  There is a decent selection of tulips, daffodils and assortments, all reasonably priced.  The tulips marked 'premium' were good sized bulbs and generally everything looked to be good quality.  I didn't buy any, as I had already bought or ordered most of my bulbs except for tulips for the patio pots but they didn't have the colours I was looking for. 

Happy shopping!

Thanks, Joan. I don't normally shop in Lidl, so they're definitely worth checking out. But next year I am aiming for less pots.

Thanks Joan for the tip off. They are a great price and I don't want to spend a lot on tulips as I don't keep them from one year to the next.

I saw these in Lidl and I would usually get them. But after getting some in Mr Middleton last year and seeing the size and quality of the bulbs, plus the fabulous flowers too, I decided to buy again from Mr M. Sometimes I find the bulbs in Lidl are quite small and yes while the price is good the flowers are definitely not as tall nor as good as the dearer ones. They do have some nice colours though
