Odyssey Bulbs has long been a favorite of mine for unusual bulbs (including unusual varieties of colchicum) that you’re not likely to find elsewhere–not even at Brent and Becky’s. I recently learned it was featured on Martha Stewart’s tv show on January 22nd. If, like me, you missed it, you can still view it on marthastewart.com or go straight to Odyssey, where they’ve conveniently profiled those selections. The video clip makes it sound like they can all be planted this spring, but I don’t think that’s the case with the crocus. I am probably shooting myself in the foot telling you about my favorite micro-bulb nursery before I’ve placed my own order, but I think Martha already gave away the secret.
What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
