Flower bulbs for sale at Lidl
Are Lidl Bulbs Good?
Lidl periodically sells seeds, plants and bulbs. In particular, I have always found bulbs to be valid and, from what I also read in the forums, this opinion is shared by many other people.
If you go to buy in nurseries or horticultural fairs, you usually spend much more for the same product. It must be said, however, that even the size can be different, a larger bulb tends to offer better results from the first flowering.
In any case, they generally appear to be of good quality, quite hard and compact, with a high success rate once planted. It has rarely happened to me to find specimens with small molds or light rot, sometimes it is possible to identify them right from the purchase by looking carefully at the sachets.
In the past, the various packages came from German nurseries. In recent times, however, it seems that attention has shifted to the Dutch ones. Well, on the other hand, Holland is the 'homeland of bulbs', tulips in the first place, so I suppose the quality level has remained consistently high over time.
Offers throughout the year
The sale naturally follows the cycles of nature. In the autumn period, bulbs are sold to be planted in September, October or November, and which will presumably bloom in spring.
In late winter or early spring, those to be planted around March or April, such as Lilies or other species with summer flowering, are proposed.
In the following I will try to list the various proposals during the year. The same can be found in the flyers on the pages relating to the Green Thumb section.
Offer at the end of August / beginning of September
Sachets of bulbs at a price of € 1.49 each. The sachets are placed all together in cardboard boxes. Click on the image to enlarge it.
These are the varieties available: Allium, Anemone, Crocus, Hyacinths, Iris, Muscari, Narcissi, Tulips. Then there are diversifications in the individual varieties, for example tulips we find them in single colors or in mixed bags, the same also applies to crocus.
The number of bulbs varies according to the plant. Allium has very large bulbs and each bag contains only six, for the other varieties we can find 10, 12, 15 and up to 40 in the case of Muscari.
The package consists of a perforated sachet fixed to a cardboard, on the back of this the cultivation indications: distance between the bulbs, depth of burial, months in which to plant them, height of the adult plant, flowering period and recommended climatic conditions (sunshine , partial shade, shade).
In this period, multiple packs are proposed, each containing different types of bulbs.
Color collection - each package costs 2.99 euros and contains bulbs of 4 different species but united by the color: red, yellow, green, purple. For example, the red package contains tulips, hyacinths, anemone and aurum italicum, all with flowers of the same color.
Balcony Beauty - cost € 4.99. Ready-to-use kit for balcony box, a rectangular-shaped cardboard containing several well-arranged and divided bulbs: narcissus, muscari, crocus, tulips, iris or siberica scilla.
Ideal for those who want to obtain excellent results with little effort and without the risk of making mistakes. What we have to do is place the cardboard on the ground inside a balcony (elongated rectangular vase), cover with more earth and water. The cardboard material is biodegradable, in a short time it will fall apart and disperse in the ground.
Envelopes of bulbs - price € 1.99 per pack. Tulips are available in different colors and shades, as well as Narcissus, Hyacinths, Iris, Allium and Fritillaria.
Early January 2018
Autumn bulbs in multiple packs Color Collection divided precisely by color. Cost 2.99 euros each.
The term 'autumn' obviously refers to the flowering period, some species already start from June and last until September. The planting takes place instead in the months of February, March, April and May, depending on the single species.
These are the packages available:
Yellow - Dahlia, Lilium, Allium, Gladiolus, Freesia
Red - Dahlia, Lilium black out, Gladioli, Crocosmia
Rose - Dahlia, Lilium, Zephyranthus, Freesia
Orange - Dahlia, Montbretia (crocosmia), Gladiolus, Lilium
It's a bit early but the bulbs keep well in their bags until the time we decide to plant them. Inside each package we find separate bags labeled with name, quantity and caliber (size) of the bulbs inside them.
I like the division by color. Obviously in each box we find more cheap bulbs, and less than the bigger and more expensive ones, moreover their caliber is not high. For what they cost they still represent a good deal. I took the red box, already the 3 bulbs of Lilium and the Dahlia are well worth the amount spent.
Mid January 2018
Ceramic vase bulbs. Cost 2.99 euros.
A kind of ready-to-use kit for indoors and outdoors, great for a gift. Vase Ø 13.8 cm, in ceramic finely decorated with images of windmills, saucer. Just take it out of the package and water. Available in variants with Tulips, Narcissus or Hyacinths.

Then for some species the bags are differentiated according to the single variety, for example as regards the Lilium bulbs we can choose between 8 different varieties.
In this period the bulb packs have the words Lovely Combinations and are 2.49 euros for each bag. The supplier is always De Ree Holland BV, therefore I am of Dutch origin.
Numerous varieties are available including Asian and Oriental Lilies, Dahlia in many varieties, Calle and Gladioli in various colors, buttercups and more.
