In the past I participated in various co-ops with products supplied by Bert and Ingrid and have never been disappointed. The tulips and lilies are absolutely beautiful. I gave several tulips to my sister and this spring she texted me "Tulips are the talk of the town!" Excellect products. Look forward to purchasing more.

People marvel over my lilies daily....they are just so beautiful, the co-op I took part in was fabulous, the bulbs were massive and just as fresh as if I had dug them myself the same day!!!! I would never hesitate to do business with Bert....he answered every question immediately too, a rare thing in today's business world.....DebOn July 19th, 2010, Depsi added the following:
I just read the previous post concerning dissatisfaction with the order procedure. I had a problem Saturday trying to get into an area on their website & emailed them regarding it...I got a "same day" phone call back from Bert himself and two different emails regarding my question and that was taken care of!!!! Again, the bulbs I ordered last year were awesome when I recieved them and it's only gotten better.....THANK YOU, BERT!!!!!!
I have placed orders from eFlowerGarden before it changed to it's current "Coop" format, and was generally satisfied. This is the first time I have tried to place an order through their "Coop." I am not pleased. The system is cumbersome and not customer friendly. One must cut and paste items into a comment section as well as type additional information for each item. I had registered, logged in and spent almost 2 hours putting together an order from what is really not that extensive of a selection. The prices, while good, are not exceptional. One can find better "deals" if one shops around. I only finished the order because once I started, I felt that too much effort had been made to quit. In the end, when I submitted my order, I received an "error." In the blink of an eye, all my effort was lost to cyberspace. No way would I put forth energy again for what I think is so little potential reward. My problem is with their online system and not with their quality of product or service, so I will give them a neutral rather than a negative. For those willing to put forth such effort merely to place an order, go for it! I will not.Company representative comment on July 16, 2010: On Jul 16, 2010 10:36 AM, eFlowerGarden responded with:
When we went "live" with the present Co-op, we were not aware of any problems. Then when the first emails came in making us aware of a "problem when submitting the order" I needed to contact the IT person who was flying at that time from New York to Atlanta. In the meantime, I also got an email from above customer advising us of the frustration they had to go through and understandebly so. I answered the email that we were looking into it what might cause the trouble and asked her to please give us time to find the problem and correct it. In the meantime we got this "neutral" remark on our report card, which is fine, but we felt it needed an explanation.
The problem was (we were unaware of this) that there was a 10 minute timing out in the code. We have changed that in the meantime to 60 minutes. So far it is working fine.
As far as cut and paste, this is merely a suggestion for people who do not want to type in the items to purchase.
We value the opinion of the members and will try to do our best to make changes if needed, specially when there is a flaw in a system, but we also expect the same courtesy back to allow us time to correct it. And while we try to do our best for all members, it is very well possible that we can not please all of the people all of the time.

I just received my hosta from the Spring Fever Hosta Co-op hosted by Notmartha (Dori). They are beautiful, healthy and fresh. All were very nicely packed with the roots and moist soil tightly wrapped in plastic and clearly labeled. All were laying sandwiched between two layers of lightweight packing peanuts and had absolutely no damaged leaves. I'm very pleased with my plants and the great care that has obviously gone into growing, packing and shipping them. Will definitely be a return customer--co-op or not=D On April 3rd, 2010, dmac085 added the following:
Received the glad corms I ordered from a classified ad run on DG. As in the past I am very pleased w/ my purchase and the great selection. I like that new varieties are added from year to year so I find something new and don't get bored w/ the choices. I also like the email notification of shipping/tracking--very helpful to have available.
Thanks for the great product and customer service--again=)

I've had great transactions with Bert since my first purchase in 2002 when I bought my house. Hostas, daylilies, and the latest purchase of 60+ lilies that looked fresh and wonderful. Shipping is fair - overall, a good person and the type you'd like to do business and support.

This nursery fully deserves its spot in the top 30. The prices were so low that I didn't expect to get plants of such high quality. The daylilies were especially impressive. The two bonus canna plants were a wonderful addition to the package.On March 28th, 2010, Zuzu added the following:
After years of shopping online at this nursery and placing many successful orders, I have to say that I still believe this nursery is one of the very best. My latest order was just as impressive as all the ones before.
I have received several orders from eflowergarden and they gave always been top notch. My most recent order of daylilies are perfect. Would highly recommend this company. :)

I just received my second gladiolus order in three years. Don't know why I didn't order last year. Everything has always come as marked, and the glads are just beautiful. Don't hesitate to order from these folks, and don't let the low prices scare you off! This is definitely one of those situations where you don't get what you pay for, if you know what I mean!

Another order, another wonderful experience. Having ordered lilies and glads from eflowergarden in years past, I can attest to the quality of their bulbs. Prices are exellent and communication is A+. Bert and Ingrid care and it shows. I have and will continue to recommend them to others.
Just received my Lily order from Bert and Ingrid. All bulbs were perfectly packed, the size they stated and healthy and all for a good price ... Can't do better than eflowergardens!

Wow! I wish I had found eflowergarden earlier! I orderd three lemon-lime amaryllis las week. Unfortunately (my fautl) they only had two left, but I received a phone call immediatly asking if I wanted a substitute or a refund. I indicated one other bulb, but since I was not at home, didn't know if it was already out of stock. I received an email later in the day indicating the 'sub' had been sold out.
The bulbs arrived very very quickly and they are enormous! I am absolutely thrilled wiht the price, quality, and customer service.
I am only disappointed that I didn't find them earlier. They are on my ++++ list now!On January 7th, 2010, clpgirl added the following:
Just wanted to say that my lemon-limes are absolutely gorgeous! Multiple, beautiful blooms, and lots of comments from folks coming through. Healthiest amaryllis I have ever seen! Next year I definitely will be back early to purchase. I smile every time I look over at these beautiful plants. Thanks so much for such a beautiful breath of spring in our snow bound world................. :)

ordered bulbs and hosta's from the co-ops (2008). was pleased with both my orders. Great prices, packaging, and communication.
I ordered some bulbs at the end of the season last fall and was impressed with the speed of their shipment, as well as the quality and size of the bulbs. I checked this afternoon and the "noses" are up :-). I will definitely order from them again, they are nice folks to deal with.

I have to say that eflowergarden has not failed to deliver quality bulbs even at an end of the season sale. Very good communication from Bert and Ingrid. I have ordered Allium, Daffodils, Muscari, Hyacinth, Tulips, Lilies, and Iris both directly and through group purchases and all have been a terrific value. I would definitely order from them again and I would recommend them to anyone looking for good value bulbs and Rhizomes.

DaLoveRat Blanchard, MI (Zone 5a) (2 reviews) August 20, 2008
I'm glad some are happy I wish that I'd just gave the money to the homeless my order was terrible dry up rz's with rot and mold they have been out of the ground way too long I've still got a dozen rz's that I dug two months ago down in my hot garage that are in way better shape. Saying I'm not happy is a understatement I wouldn't give rz's in this shape away let alone sell them my "throw away's" are better, definitely lost my business or any sort of recommendation to any one else.On August 30th, 2008, DaLoveRat changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:
Although the customer rep did replace the rotten irises promptly they "warehouse" their irises too long to suit me and arrive very dried out with very little "green" they probably will grow with lots of extra intention still this company is not for me. This company may be a "brokerage" not growing their own irises hence them being so dried up.On July 10th, 2009, DaLoveRat changed the rating from neutral to negative and added the following:
The following year after buying irises from them in a co-op not one that bloomed was "true to name" and upon contacting their rep. he replied that the owner was gone for a few days and would get back with me by a certain date that date went by and now two weeks and another "D-mail" later still no word from them. I guess they fix problems by ignoring them hoping for them to go away, they must not put customer service high on their list. If you feel like getting the wrong plants and don't care about throwing money away on fertiziler & merit and if your time isn't valuable then go ahead. NEVER AGAIN WILL I ORDER FROM THEM.

I had ordered white daffodills last fall but by the time they got to my order, all the ones I wanted were gone. My fault as I ordered late. They contacted me and sent me bulbs that were a bit small but close to what I had originally wanted for my white gargen. I was very impressed as they did not charge me anything. This spring I had some nice white daffodills to enjoy. This fall, I will order much earlier to get what I want and it will be thru this company.
sunandstar Holly Springs, NC (Zone 7a) (3 reviews) May 8, 2008
We placed an order for daylilies and couple of hostas with eflowergarden. The daylilies were nice size single fans one of them was double fan, all with good root system. The plants were well packed and labelled. We potted them up and now couple of them are already sending out scapes. The hostas had alteast 2 or more eyes. They all survived. The price is good . We will recommend to anyone who want to buy good plants for less price.

OH MY the Nicest, Biggest, most reasonable prices! I don't know how they do it but I will look here before I buy anything anywhere else!
I can't wait to order my fall bulbs from here!! Wonderful shipping. Everything was packed and labeled beautifully with great guides for planting and information on each package about the varieties color, bloom, height, etc.. I wish you had a "Positive Plus" grading..eFlower would get it from ME!
I am extremely happy with my purchase from eflowergarden.com. I ordered 2 types of daylilies from them. I am happy with the quality of the plants and I got my order VERY quickly. (I placed the order on 4/30, it was shipped the NEXT day and I received the package on 5/2.) The daylilies were carefully packed. The fans are not overly large, but they are consistent with the varieties that I ordered (minis) and have good root systems. I will order from this vendor again.
