Excerpt from Spring-Flowering Bulbs, Roses and House Plants for Fall Planting, 1911 Good bulbs are not produced by chance any more than are the good Roses for which the name of Dingee has been famous for over half a century. The same knowledge, care and experience stand back of everything in the finest bulbs for fall planting offered in the present book. Any bulb, every bulb, either for indoor or outdoor planting, ought to be good. Cheap, poorly cured, undersized bulbs are dear at any price and should be carefully avoided. Dingee bulbs are good bulbs in the full meaning of the term. If you would have success with your winter or spring bulbs this season, remember our reputation on Roses and that we are able to give you equally good satisfaction in this other corner of Flora's realm. For over sixty years, growing Roses on their own roots has been a specialty with us. In this department we lead, both in quantity and quality. Dingee Roses are famous the World over, and we exercise the same care, which has spread our fame, to all the growing things listed in this book.
