Ratings & Reviews
Very pleased with my purchase
Purchased Red Inchelium and German Hardy and planted them Fall 2019, Zone 7b, heavy clay soil that was heavily mulched with wood chips. I’m very pleased with my harvest, some very large bulbs - there is definitely a correlation between the spacing of the cloves and the resulting bulb size. I’m saving and replanting cloves from the largest bulbs this coming November!
I purchased Inchelium Red in Summer of 2019 and planted them in October of 2019 (Cedar Falls, IA). I harvested the crop on 7.7.20 and I am very pleased with the result. The bulbs and cloves are huge. Bulbs are currently curing and I'm eager to taste them and see how they store this fall/winter. Thanks!
