Glad this got bumped up! Our HD doesn't have half-price on stuff yet, but probably by the end of the month.
For anybody who can make it down to Frederick on (or even after) October 12, I'm organizing a group purchase on fall bulbs from ADR. You can also ask a friend who is coming to the bulb-sorting party to pick up bulbs for you or even be your "shipping angel" (but not me, please, it's more than I can do this time). We're getting wholesale prices, better than half off the cost anywhere I've seen (including places like van Engelen where you can buy in bulk), and they've sent me nice fat bulbs in the past. It's all on the Mid-Atlantic forum at DG, so if you're not still a subscriber over there just get in touch with somebody who is.
