National Geographic : 1913 May
> From Now Until JULY 1st NOT LATER -HE R E is no more useful garden ma I terial than what are known as Dutch Bulbs-Hyacinths, Tulips, Narcissi, Crocus, etc. They give for a small outlay of time and money an abundance of flowers in the house from December until April, and in the garden almost before the snow is off the ground in the spring until the middle of May. These bulbs are grown almost exclusively in Hol land, 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 satisfac tory quality. (References required from new customers.) Our Import price-list, the most comprehensive cata logue of Bulbs published, is now ready, and may be had for the asking.
