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.)

I discovered Ranuculus plants last year. My mom, as well as I, fell in love with them. So I Googled Ranaculus in order to find a website to order bulbs as a birthday gift for her this month and also to purchase some for myself. I came across Easytogrowbulbs.com......read great reveiws on Easytogrowbulbs.com.....so I placed an order with them. I sent an email, via their contact link, with a couple of questions. The response from Kathleen McCarthy (Customer Service Rep) was immediate, helpful friendly, and answered my questions. Her follow-up after our initial emails, to make sure all was taken care of, was unexpected and very much appreciated. And she also made my day a 3rd time by shipping my bulbs when I needed them. In this day and age, it is few and far between to work with a company that has polite, efficient, customer service rep that is more than willing to go the extra mile to ensure their customers are taken care of. Kudos to Easytogrowbulbs and Kathleen McCarthy for meeting a standard of excellence! I will pass on Easytogrowbulbs.com's name to my flower/plant-loving friends!

I have repeatedly ordered from the company and have never been disappoined. The size of the bulbs usually floors me when I open the box. I've never had a problem. The prices are great- can't see how they make it, even with volume business, but they must be because they're still here! And I'm glad too!

I ordered daffodils, hyacinths, and lilies. All arrived quickly, very large bulbs, all in great condition. Website describes their lily bulbs as 'huge,' but more accurate descriptions would be ENORMOUS! or GIGANTIC! or HUMONGOUS!--'huge' simply does not do them justice!!! Plus, I experienced the best customer service I have ever encountered on any website (or anywhere else for that matter!)--fast, responsive, helpful, and very considerate! A++++ in all respects! This was my first purchase from ETGB, resulting from a very fortunate Google search, but it certainly will not be my last!!! Highest Recommendation!

I ordered 10 Narcissus Constantinople and 25 Double Freesia mix for indoor forcing. All of the bulbs were healthy and they sprouted without any issues. My narcissus are about to bloom! I mistakenly ordered the Single instead of the Double Freesia. A quick email to their customer service fixed the problem. I am happy with the quality of my bulbs and this company's customer service. I plan to order more from Easy To Grow Bulbs!

I've ordered twice with ETGB. The first time I got a problem with the amaryllis bulbs, but after talking and sending them some pictures, they promptly sent me replacements. The second time was better. I have to say, their bulbs are huge. I can't wait to see the regale lily blooms when summer comes. Will do business again.

Received my order today December 6 and all I can say is WOW . Amazing customer service from day 1 , They sent an e mail when my payment went through, They sent an email confirming all information was correct, They sent a link showing where my order was while it was being sent FEDEX. Bulbs arrived today I am amazed . I ordered 30 Watsonia Ablaze to replace a patch of old watsonia that has become weedy and ugly and the bulbs they sent are the same size or larger than the 300 or so I tore out of the ground! Keeping in mind these 30 will soon turn to 300 lol . The trumpet lily and calla lily bulbs all have green tips and this is December wow , and the Adventure pack they sent as a freebie is simply awesome . I cannot wait to see the product of such wonderful healthy bulbs this spring . I know I may have to wait til next spring on the Watsonia being as it is December and they are being planted very late but oh well , If I had known of this company I would have ordered long ago . They have my business for any bulb need in the future . Kudos

My order was filled and sent promptly. The bulbs were large and healthy, no signs of disease, with clear and specific planting instructions. And when I realized my "bonus" (for a large order) was missing, a simple email to the customer service office led to an almost immediate remedy. I've been a Dutch Gardens customer for years, but their quality has declined significantly in the past couple of seasons. Easy to Grow Bulbs seems a great new choice (and they're easy to work with, too!) Thanks/jj

I don't typically post feedback, but my experience with Easy to Grow Bulbs has been exceptional. I ordered bulbs from them last year, and was surprised how large they were. The blooms were healthy and beautiful, so I ordered again this year, both for myself and for a design client. The customer service was outstanding, the order arrived surprisingly fast, and the bulbs were huge and healthy. I've been enjoying the blooms throughout the season, Both my client and I are very happy!

I ordered more than 20 yellow and white carpet roses from easytogrow bulbs this spring. All except one arrived in perfect condition. The one that was damaged was replaced promptly, free of charge. Great customer service!

Got the bulbs and everything is top notch as anticipated. Planted promptly and almost everything has sprouted and looks healthy. In fact, I was surprised by the plants vigor, I didn't expect them to grow quite so fast. Placed a second order. Their glads in particular are superb.

Ordered a variety of fall-planted bulbs for virgin bulb garden. Had a wonderful show this spring... beautiful display of a diverse assortment of daffodils, with an even-better-than-expected success rate.

Placed a small order for 4 kinds of bulbs. Almost 100% mortality rate. Very unhelpful when requesting replacements. My opinion: bad bulbs, bad service.

We contacted this customer (twice) to learn more about his situation. His single brief email noted that the order was placed 4 years ago by someone else in the family and that he had no further information about issues with the products or service.

Last year I ordered plants from Easy To Grow after finding them on the net.I ordered astilbes. They came huge and so I planted them for the first time ever after my jaw dropped seeing how big the root systems were. They grew fast and large and were loaded with color. Very impressive follage too. This year I ordered even more and some hostas which came soon after I put in my order. The hostas are so large they have burst their packages and are begging me to put them in the ground. I know they will be stunners and I can hardly wait. This is a great place to do business with. Not like those mail order catalogs that send you tiny strands of a plant that will take you several years to see any real growth.

I've ordered bulbs from this company 3 times and have been very pleased with the quality. Out of three orders I only received one bad bulb and they were quick to give me a credit when I reported the problem. They are also very careful about not shipping tender tropical bulbs when they might freeze in transit.

I purchased three Papillio Amaryllis bulbs on Saturday February 12th to be sent to my house in Minnesota knowing that we were going to receive unseasonably warm weather monday thru thursday. ETGB sent them on monday and I received the bulbs on thursday just as they said I would. The bulbs were exactly the size I was told they would be and once I put them in pots they started to grow seemingly overnight. One of them is growing a flower stem and should flower within a month or so. I will certainly buy from them again and will direct other friends to do the same.

We ordered several hosta collections in July 2010 for planting in a new memorial rose garden. Even though we ordered late, the plants we received were large and robust. The hosta settled in and took off immediately. Winters are harsh in our 4b/5a climate but we're confident these will add beauty to the garden for many years to come. Excellent product at a great price! We'll definitely order from ETGB again.

This was the first year I have ever planted bulbs. I ordered from FIVE different sources, and BY FAR, this company had the very best looking bulbs (daffodil, tulip, anemone, muscari, snowdrops, allium). The daffodil bulbs especially were HUGE, firm, and in excellent condition. I am in zone 6b and all my bulbs are starting to come up now, because we are experiencing a very rare warm spell. I am keeping all my fingers crossed that the bulbs will still be alright, because I'm sure we still have freezing temperatures coming ahead before winter is over. YIKES!!!!!!

Freesia bulbs I ordered last year for forcing are blooming great in my kitchen window. They shipped fast and are all true to name. I'm surprised anyone would complain about this well run company with very reasonable prices.

I ordered an amaryllis bulb from ETGB for my wife for Christmas. It never sprouted. This is the first time in almost 25 years I have had an amaryllis bulb from any source that did not flower, never mind not sprout! Yet, one month later, after repeated attempts to obtain a replacement and receiving nothing but repeated implications that I was nothing more than an impatient fool with no understanding of how to cultivate a bulb, I have given up. This company does not provide customer satisfaction.

This customer selected an amaryllis variety that typically takes 30-40 days to bloom and purchased 2 weeks before Christmas. This timing is too tight for Christmas bloom under the best of circumstances, especially given the shipping to the opposite side of the country required for the order. We received 3 emails from him explaining that the bulb had been slow to sprout and that it had not bloomed by Christmas and "our Christmas has already been somewhat spoiled" by this.

I buy a lot of plants, seeds and bulbs online. This was my first time buying from this company. Huge bulbs for the price, gave some to my gardening friends and they were quite impressed. What I like best is that when my order was delayed because they didn't have some of the bulbs from the growers when they were expected, they both phoned and emailed me to let me know and included some free paperwhites for the delay. Great customer service! I will definately buy from them again.

I bought paperwhites from Easy to Grow Bulbs after a web search last year; they did so well I bought more this year. I also tried a method they detail for getting the bulbs to grow shorter leaves with just as many nice big flowers. That worked great! The 'Ariel' bulbs produced masses of beautiful 1"+ pure white, fragrant blooms, 2 and sometimes 3 stems per bulb. Far superior to any I've grown before!

I placed multiple orders with Easy to Grow Bulbs for my fall bulbs. Kathleen, their customer service representative, is extremely kind and helpful. She assisted me in shifting my shipment date for my orders when I had to travel out of town for business (so that hundreds of bulbs weren't just sitting on my front porch in the Georgia heat for days!) and everything arrived in beautiful condition. I even emailed Kathleen to ask how to make sure I'd planted my Dicentra "right side up" because it was very hard to discern it from the bare root plants. When I followed her instructions just days later to investigate and make sure I'd done it right, I was delighted to find that the Bleeding hearts (pink dicentra) were already well on their way to sprouting and forming a root system. Only one type of bulb was back ordered and everything arrived looked healthy. I didn't have to throw away a single bulb, as opposed to other online groups I used which seemed to have about one bad bulb in each bunch. My Blue Siberian Iris "super ego" are already starting to have shoots grow! I'm very excited to see the fruits of my labor this Spring!

I had ordered some Peonies, a wisteria, and some tulip bulbs. I was greatly impressed with the prices and the material I received. The bulbs were healthy and big. The vine looked great and peony roots were good sized. I would definitely order again. Any contact with the company has been quick and quite personable.

There are a lot of good seed and bulb companies listed on the internet these days. One of our very favorites, however, is Easy To Grow Bulbs of California. We have placed several orders with this company over the past couple of years, and have been very pleased with each of the shipments we received from them. We are also very impressed by the company's friendly and courteous service. Easy To Grow Bulbs offers a wide variety of flowering bulbs, and the bulbs we have received from them have always been large and healthy. We highly recommend this company!
