Roberta’s Amaryllises went up $10! From $19.99 to $29.25!

WOW, talk about inflation, last year Roberts had their Holiday Amaryllis bulbs for $19.99.  This year they went up to a whopping $29.25!  Why such an increase?  Last year I bought three this year I will find another vendor.

Yes, there is a huge increase in price, but you are also buying a much larger bulb this year.

I wouldn’t think it could be much larger. Last years was huge and just beautiful!

The one I bought last year did not bloom till into month of January.  Just yesterday I dug it out of the dirt where I buried it last winter after the blooming was over.  Fingers crossed it will bloom this winter indoors during the holiday season.  New price of 29.99 to way too much!
