My family has finally realized they need only to buy me plants and I'm a happy camper at Christmas. Even happier when I received saffron crocus bulbs from this company--they were firm, plump and huge. Their lemongrass is also very nice.

I've heard back from Easy To Grow Bulbs, and they are re-shipping the order, restoring my faith in the company. The quality of their bulbs has always been excellent

Just in a couple of hours after posting my comment a representative of the customer service called me and everything was settled. Thank you, Dave's Garden! It worked.

As I await another order from easy to Grow, I would be remiss not to mention the wonderful customer service i have experienced over the years... specifically by Kathleen. She has always responded promptly and professionally. Added to the wonderful plants, customer service that is exemplary has not only earned my respect, but is obviously one of the reasons that Easy to Grow Bulbs/Willow Creek is always one of the Top 30. Well done!!

A representative from Easy to grow Bulbs contacted me soon after I posted on Dave's Garden to offer me full replacement of my Casa Blanca Lilies even though some did bloom. I am very satisfied and feel they went above what was necessary to retain a customer. I will be shopping with them again!!

I ordered amaryllis bulbs from ETGB for the first time this spring and the shipping was very quick with excellent packaging. The sale price was very good at $5-6/bulb and the bulbs arrived healthy looking. I was rather pleased with the purchase. Well, the free bulb pack, I think liatris (?), was too dried up to grow though since none showed any sign of life after planting.

I was contacted by Jon almost immediately after I posted my original review. It appears that my emails did not get through to them. He was extremely professional, and issued me a full refund for all the rhizomes, even though I did get 4 that were good.
Very happy with their customer service, and yes, I will try again to order more Cleopatras if they are available next year.

Haven't ordered anything other than seeds from a mail order company for at least 8 years (bad experience). After reading GWD reviews, decided to give it a try again. Ordered dahlias, tuberous begonias and peonies. Really surprised at the size and quality of the tubers. All have sprouted and are growing well. Will be ordering from this company again.

Having learned my lesson and now only shopping at Watchdog highly rated companies, I ordered several items. My order arrived very quickly, was perfectly packaged so nothing was damaged and no soil spilled on the potted plants. The bareroot nearly Lady Baltimore hibiscus I ordered had new growth within just three days. They had an excellent price on purple d'oro lilies and I got tons of them and all are a good 12+ inches high and 6-8 inches wide and budding already---I planted them a month ago. I reordered a lot of things I'd ordered from another company more than 10 weeks before and they are in the ground and growing while I still am waiting for the other bulbs from a different company to arrive. They also sent some free bulbs and I look forward to seeing what they'll do. Overall an excellent buying experience. Ignore the Watchdog ratings at your peril and thank you Dave's for sending this vendor my way. Will definitely keep them on my list of preferred vendors!

This is my second year ordering from Easy to Grow Bulbs and I am extremely pleased with their products and customer service. Everything I have ordered has come packed appropriately and has flourished with the exception of three red carpet rose bushes. I ordered four red carpet rose bushes and three yellow carpet rose bushes this year. All are doing great except 3 of the red carpet. I emailed them and received a prompt, courteous reply. I was worried I may not get a response, but I have been overly impressed with the numerous communications I have received from Kathleen at Easy to Grow Bulbs! She has put me at ease and has assured me the red rose bushes will take off and if not, they will be replaced. She is wonderful!!! I couldn't ask for anything more!! Believe me, this company is awesome and you won't regret ordering from them. I am a customer for life!!! If you have been hesitant about ordering from them, don't be...go for it...you won't be disappointed!

Received the replacement plants today. Very nice healthy plants. Kathleen is wonderful to work with providing excellent Customer Service. My replacement order was shipped the day after I alerted them to the misshipment of a couple plants. I will be placing many more orders with Easy to Grow Bulbs. Great Company!!

I ordered gloriosa lily bulbs last week. Received them in a few days and the bulbs were large healthy bulbs!! Packaged very well. I give them an A++.

After seeing this company's rating here on Dave's Garden, I checked out their website. I've only ordered plant material from online companies since last year and have had mixed results. What a pleasant surprise to speak with Kathleen at Easy to Grow Bulbs! I called them to get some advice on particular plants and she was patient, kind and enthusiastic. I ordered two different types of gladiolus, dinner plate dahlias, alstromeria, and tuberose and received some lycoris as a bonus. Everything is planted but it's too early to tell how they will do. But I had to jump on here and say what a nice experience I've had so far.

Last year, I ordered several varieties of trumpet lilies from EasyToGrowBulbs.com, and those bulbs arrived in excellent shape and far beyond the size I was expecting. I planted them and they bloomed like 3-year-old established bulbs...huge amounts of gorgeous flowers. I just ordered again, and again the bulbs are far larger than I had expected...hopefully they'll perform like the ones I bought last year.

I love to grow edible plants in my garden mixed with my flowers. I ordered three new plants for my garden and they were so much larger than I expected to receive as full plants. I ordered the stevia, which I will use for a natural sweetener, and lemon grass for Asian cooking and tea, and the bay laurel for savory cooking. I am so excited about my new plants and how they are already growing in my garden. I will be ordering more from Easy to Grow Bulbs.

Very happy with my order. I ordered mostly spring flowering bulbs and bearded iris, so cannot comment on the flowers at this time, but the bulbs are very large, healthy, and fresh with no mold or rot. The dormant bearded iris rhizomes are at least three times larger than the ones I bought at my local nursery. Since I am in zone 7b, I like their selection of warm climate bulbs. Shipping was also fast, and the order shipped within a week of being placed.

I just received and planted my first order from Easy To Grow and was impressed with the packing as well as the bulbs. They also delivered the bulbs when I requested them.

I ordered many scores of camassia bulbs last fall from Easy to Grow Bulbs. I was worried about their size and maturity, though, because EtGB's prices were much lower than other stores that I had shopped. I had read that camassia took several years to bloom, and I wondered if EtGB was selling younger bulbs than the competitors, which allowed them to sell the bulbs cheaper. The bulbs arrived OK, and I planted them. Cynical me, I did not expect flowers this year, but in the spring, their bed was covered in beautiful purple native bulb flowers. It's a nice surprise when you save a lot of money and get good quality, too.

that I was unwilling to take any advise and and refused her offer is totally UNTRUE. Never once did I say I would not take her recommendation. She did NOT say the plants would be replaced and her condescending attitued was enough to make anyone unhappy. When I received the plants the roots were not developed enought to plant so I waited three weeks to give them more time to develop and this is the advise I get to only water once a week and I had been watering just twice a week

Easy to Grow Bulbs was having an end-of-season sale, so I decided to give them a try. I placed my order online at 9:30 p.m. on June 4. On June 5 I received an email that my package had been shipped--less than 24 hours after I placed the order. I received it on June 6. (I live only an hour away from their facility.) Everything was there and well packaged.

I placed another large order with ETGB in late spring for a variety of bare root peonies and a few odds and ends. There was a problem with some of the peonies when they arrived (not viable), and after contacting Kathleen in customer service the issue was resolved quickly and easily. It's rare to find a business that truly cares about its customers and has such incredible customer service! As others have said, do not hesitate to order from this company! :-)

Placed an order for begonia and arisaema bulbs and a Passion Vine plant. All were received in a timely manner, and well packaged. Despite my ordering late in the season, the begonias were of good size and condition. The Passion Vine actually bloomed after two weeks in the ground.

I'm very impressed with the quality of customer service at Easy to Grow Bulbs. When my spring bulbs were slow to emerge, their service rep, Kathleen M., did a painstaking job of diagnosing the problem. Through thorough questioning and emailed pictures of a few bulbs I dug up, she was able to prescribe a simple solution - tone down the watering! Now they're popping up happy and healthy. And I didn't waste a good deal of time and money planting over them, as I planned to do.

I was looking for a specific iris plant for my Mom as a present and found Easy to Grow Bulbs on the Watchdog 30 list. Not only did they have what she was looking for but their customer service given by Kathleen was the excellent, the best in all my years of mail order. Mom was thrilled, the quality and condition of the plant perfect. Many kudos to Easy Grow ( I can't say enough) and thanks to Watchdog 30 for pointing me in their direction!

I made a mistake when I stated all the plants did not sprout, the peonies did sprout and are very nice.
The tulips, crocus and oxalis did not sprout. Hence I am leaving this negative.

Updating to Neutral as Jill from Easy to Grow Bulbs got in touch with me. She has promised to credit the bulbs that did not sprout. Will update review once the bulbs arrive and do well.

I have made several - four or five - purchases from Easy to Grow Bulbs. I am hooked! Everything is growing and looks wonderful and they come packaged beautifully. I've got plumerias, passion flowers, daisies, every kind of lily I think and begonias and things I cannot pronounce. I will continue to get goodies from EtGB - everything has far outdone anything I ever got at Home Depot or Lowe's!!! Happy planting!

I placed orders for the Corkscrew Vine (Vigna Caracalla) through QVC (via Cottage Farms, yuck!!) and monticellostore.org. Not only did both companies send 2" tall, barely clinging to life plants, it turned out both companies also sent the wrong plant.

I have had no luck trying to root Plumerias and decided to try a rooted plant from Easy to grow bulbs.com. In less than a week I received a large rooted and potted plant with two leaves. It was very well packaged and arrived intact. The price and shipping was far less than I ever saw before online. If I can get this one to grow I will certainly be back for more.

Another awesome experience. I placed another sizable order and I needed to replace a Peony that arrived less than perfect. I got immediate replacement with no questions asked. I really enjoy dealing with these people. It's like ordering from a friend. I just wish it was this easy with everyone. Thanks Kathleen and everyone at Easy-to-Grow-Bulbs! Your hard work is noticed and appreciated!

My order was for two Passion Flower vines. I chose regular shipping, which took five days as promised. After about three days of waiting, I wondered what effect the shipping may have on my plants. I was a bit worried! When the order arrived, I opened the packages immediately, and was stunned! The plants were so pampered by the shipping department, that they were lush, moist, and healthier than some plants I have brought home from the local nursery! Oh, and the plants were BIGGER than I expected! They have been planted for a few days now, and already have new leaves on them. I have found my online nursery! The prices were extremely reasonable too. I will be ordering from them again and again. Why not? Everything was perfect. These guys raised the bar for everyone else!

In addition to the large, healthy plants and bulbs that are very well packaged for shipping, I have to rate this company #1 in customer service. One plant in my order was incorrect, and Kathleen replied to my e-mail almost immediately with an apology and confirmation that the correct plant was being shipped. Can't ask for better service than that! (This company is also known as Willow Creek Gardens.)
