Here is a couple of quotes from their website about the size of the amaryllis bulbs. "Longfield-gardens.com"
To get a good value for your money, the answer is yes. With amaryllis there's a clear relationship between bulb size and performance.
Amaryllis bulbs are sized by measuring (in centimeters) around the widest part of the bulb. In the photo below, the bulb on the far right measures 26/28 centimeters in circumference. The largest one on the far left is a full 8 cm larger, measuring 34/36 cm.

Here is what the size of the bulbs will produce in blooms. Again from "Longfield-gardens.com "
Here are how many stems and flowers each size bulb is likely to produce:
26/28 cm – 1 stem (occasionally 2) with 3 to 4 flowers
28/30 cm – 1-2 stems with 3-4 flowers per stem
30/32 cm – 2 stems with 4-5 flowers per stem
32/34 cm – 2 stems (occasionally 3) with 4-5 flowers per stem
34/36 cm – 3 stems with 4-5 flowers per stem
Have fun growing amaryllis. Check out Longfield-garden as they sell the bulbs and will sent them to you. I don't sell any because the traffic is not for gardening this time of year. But I do enjoy growing and watching them bloom. Give them a try.
