I couldn't find the price mentioned by Farah,but I remember the bulb was available with Awan Seeds Rawalpindi for Rs.22,some months back.I understand the farmers buy it in bulk for about Rs.5-10 a piece.

I always buy from awan seeds rwp. And I have trust in them but even then i asked them about the higher rate of these bulbs , and he satisfied me by saying that these are imported. Any idea from where I should purchase next time. :oops:
Did he cheat me Munir Sb? Before going there I made a call to the shop and asked about the price, the owner told me Rs. 80 but when i went to the shop, his son gave me @ rs. 75 and i bought 20 bulbs. Beside these i also bought some bulbs of freesia and anemone, and i got them for Rs. 20 per bulb.i did this shopping in the middle of december. It is not fair that they are selling the same thing to different customers at different prices.

Good going.. bulbs blooms are beautiful .. you may also like to change the grass unless its off colour is due to extended cold weather in Islamabad..

Which grass would be better in your opinion. My house is north facing that's why i chose korean grass. But in winter it gives a shabby look.

. Awan Seeds has fixed prices & displayed on seed/bulb packets ,which are not altered by the salesmen there. The saleman's explanation to you may therefore,be correct.
. I bought the bulbs from them in late Sep or early Oct,when the prices of Freesia & Anemone were Rs.25 & Rs.32 apiece respectively- a little more than you paid.
. I suggest next time you make purchases,do check up from other sources eg Awan Garden Centre Islamabad.
