For dutch bulbs website, we will have to share as much as possible as they sell in large quantity and mr ifzal might not carry a lot of bulbs. I think following bulbs are good candidate:

- Gloriosa lily
- Rhodohypoxis
- Canna
- Oriental / Asiatic Lily (Experiment success by Brig Arif of Refrigeration)
- Dahlia
- Gladioli

For small orders, we can go to anglia bulbs.

Out of these only Gloriosa Lilly and Rhodohypoxis are worth ordering.

However most of Canna varieties can be found easily in Pakistan. Orientals/Asiatic Iilliums are easily available around Rs 60 each around September or October in seed shops and the current time is not suitable for ordering as by the time they arrive here they would require refrigeration till end of September. Mostly Lilliums can either be stored in refrigerators or ice chillers where ice is made from May till September. These commercial ice chillers charge around Rs 150 to 200 per crate. Kashmir or Indian Dahlia cuttings are easily available in our market including known varieties of Gladiolus.

Izhar, i have Canna Cleopatra. You can have it from me. At this stage the Cleopatra are in a mixed border and their ID would be known for sure when they flower.
