n HERE is no more useful garden material Sthan what are known as Dutch Bulbs, Hya cinths, Tulips, Narcissi. Crocus, etc. They Give for a small outlay of time and money an abundance of flowers in the house from Decem ber until April, and in the garden almost before the snow is off the ground in the spring until the middle of May. From NOW until July 1st-NOT LATER WI These bulbs are grown al most exclusively in Holland, and in enormous quantities, where they are sold at very low prices. Usually they pass through the hands of two dealers, and more than double in price before reaching the retail buyer in America. By ordering from us now instead of waiting until fall, you make a large saving in cost, get a superior quality of Bulbs not usually to be obtained at any price in this country, and have a much larger list of varieties to select from. Our orders are selected / and packed in Holland, and are shipped to our customers immediately upon their arrival from Holland, perfectly fresh, and in the best possible condition. If you wish to take advantage of our very low prices, we must have your order not later than July 1st, as we import Bulbs to order only. They need not be paid for until after delivery, nor taken if not of a satisfactory quality. (References required from new customers.)
