The price of rain lilies (zephyranthes)

I went to buy some more rain lilies (zephyranthes) for my garden and was horrified by the price - $10 each.
As there are people who have mass plantings I assume there are cheaper options somewhere.
Does anyone know?

As they are grown from bulbs, they have probably been amassed by self propagation over a period of time; unless, of course, the owners had plenty to spend on plantings!

Good idea Irene but have also got my radio co-host onto it as he can surely get me a better deal. smiling smiley

Great idea re Trademe thanks Irene. I have found them for $2.50 per plant.
So happy!

Just thought I'd also add that Kauri Park nurseries at Kaiwaka also sell them for $2.50 - bulk, mass planting.

They are really quite extraordinary little plants. I planted them one day and they were flower the next.
So very happy!
