I have been buying from this company for the last year-and-a-half. I stumbled across their web site like one of your members, by accident. I used to go right by their location when visiting San Diego and didn't know it. Anyway, I have had nothing but outstanding service when ordering. Outstanding, knowledgeable, and prompt replies to my questions. Outstanding communication regarding specials or new arrivals, and most importantly I have received the best, most fabulous, and yes, again, outstanding quality of bulbs, cuttings and trees. I cannot say enough about Easy to Grow Bulbs. I recommend them highly. When you receive your order from them you will not be disappointed.
I ordered around 24 reblooming iris from this company, six different varieties of iris from this company. There was a shipping delay that was out of their control, about half of their stock took longer than expected to reach the correct size. And of course all of my varities were the ones that took longer.
Kathy offers a great customer service experience. I received every single variety yesterday. The company says the rhizomes are 3 - 5 fans. Every single one I received had a large rhizome and 6 + fans. I will always recommend them for reblooming iris. I order some non reblooming and some reblooming from C and T Iris patch and the rhizomes were whimpy compared to these.

I ordered pink lily of the valley pips and they are now blooming and are huge, gorgeous and I have absolutely no complaints! They were packaged exceptionally and arrived within days of my order! Not only that, they responded quickly to any inquiries I had, will email me in January when the pink lily of the valley's are in stock again for next year and were very nice to deal with!! Definitely will order again!

WOW. Great company to deal with. I have ordered three different times from Easy To Grow Bulbs internet site this spring and each experience has been nothing but stellar. FAST shipping, FAST reply to email questions, and the BIGGEST bulbs I have seen yet. So far, everything I have planted has come up beautifully (except the items I planted just last week). Even the sale specials I ordered were much better quality than I had ever hoped. Again, the BIGGEST bulbs I have seen! You cannot go wrong with Easy To Grow bulbs. This vendor is a great source for superior product and exemplary service.
I ordered 4 varities of glads, first, the bulbs are truely the biggest glad bulbs I have every seen in my life. I ordered 80 bulbs and only 1 was small and a little dry, but i still planted it. I was very pleased at the shipping, it was fast, the product was in good shape and above all they were exactly what was advertised. I will certainly be ordering from them again.

Great co. to deal with. Rapid delivery of items - nice sized material and well packaged. Answered all concerns in timely manner; Kathleen McCarthy was great - in clearing up misunderstanding related to billing.
Scadoxis bulbs starting to sprout in < week. Gloriosa still to come - understand that they are somewhat late risers!
Thank you Easytogrowbulbs.com for great service and product - I highly recommend your services and products and will continue to order from you in the future if I can be assured of continued pleasant and fast service and good product .

On May 20,2007, I ordered daylilies from Easy to Grow Bulbs. I did not receive the order in a timely manner. When I contacted customer service, they immediately replied to my email. The problem was with the post office, but the company said they would reship my order. I received the order in less time than stated (sent FedEx this time) The plants received were fine. The promptness with which they replied to my email plus the way in which my order was dealt with, shows that this is a great company to order from. This was my second order with them, and I will continue to order from them because of the quality of the plants and fine customer service.

Easy to Grow Bulbs is the best! I've placed several orders with them this year, and everything I've received has been great. I called Easy To Grow Bulbs yesterday with a question, and the woman who took my call not only answered my question, she spent a lot of time suggesting plants for my garden. I love these folks!!!
I got my package 5 days after placing order online. That was the fastest among 3~5 online shops I had bought from. Very well packaged with nice instruction. Their bulbs ARE generally bigger than the one I had tried before. Most glads bulbs are 2 to 3 times bigger than the one I got from a "Collection".
If all grows well, this will be the only bulb shop I'm going to buy in the future.

This has been my first year to order from Easy to Grow Bulbs and I have been very pleased. I ordered on a Friday and my package arrived in less than a week. I will remember them next year. Thanks for the great experience.
I LOVE EASY TO GROW BULBS! They are first rate, top notch. A+++++++ from me. This is the best bulb company I have yet to find. I have ordered from them at least a dozen times in less than a year and have yet to be disappointed. Every single bulb received was huge and healthy upon arrival and every bulb grew and bloomed its first season. Kathleen in customer service is excellent. Everything arrives in a timely manor and is neatly packed. Plus receiving the adventure packs is also a huge bonus. Another thing they offer is web specials, which is a great way to save money. I will definitely buy from them again and again. Easy to grow bulbs is my favorite mail order bulb site.
After having a terribly disappointing experience with Bulbmeister, I was hesitant to try another bulb company, but Easy to Grow Bulbs lives up to its promise on their website of large and healthy tubers, for that is just what I received from them. These are the best Dahlia tubers I have ever received through mail order and they have what they advertise which was not the case with the other company in question.

i ordered some paperwhite bulbs as a christmas present for a friend. the friend has a black thumb and yet she followed the directions and they bloomed wonderfully for her for the whole holiday season. they were sent on time and well-packed too.
remembering that experience, i just placed an order for calla bulbs late last week and they arrived today. they are in the ground and i will report back if anything is amiss, but so far, i am very happy with this vendor.

just received 3 bags of various rain lilies and continue to think nothing but good of this company. they are reasonably priced; the shipping is always on time and the bulbs are well packed and healthy. thanks again.
I have ordered several times from Easy to Grow Bulbs and have been satisfied every time. Everything I've planted has flourished very quickly and all are absolutely beautiful. I have ordered Oxalis, Lily of the Valley, Bleeding Heart, Dahlias, and many more.
When I emailed with a question concerning container sizes, I received a thorough response in a timely manner. More recently, I was sent an additional order of Lily of the Valley after the company found that the originals that were sent to me may not have been the best quality. That's true customer service and I was very impressed.
I waited too long to buy and order Dinnerplate Dahlias and in my exhaustive search last year I found Easy to Grow Bulbs. I sent them an e-mail asking when they'd be available and got an immediate and very friendly response. Kathleen told me she would let me know as soon as I could order them. Sure enough as soon as I could get them I got an e-mail. My inquiry was at the start of Winter and the e-mail was the start of Spring so it surprised me for sure. I made my order and received it in no time. I had a question on 1 of the Bulb packages I received and this too was answered quickly and resolved immediately. This has been 1 of the most positive experiences I have had ordering. Kathleen certainly makes sure the customer is happy and I would recommend ordering from them to anybody wanting a quick, easy and friendly experience.
I ordered from this company for the first time this spring. I got 12 Lilly of theValley and begonias to start. The begonias have all sprouted and look very healthy. Lilly of the Valley had been in the ground for about a month doing very poorly when I got a surprise shipment of 12 replacement pips and an apology letter. Seems they realized an error had been made by a supplier and rather than just let it go they flew in replacements from Europe and sent them 2nd day air to me. I was totally shocked by this outstanding and all too infrequent level of customer service. The replacement Lillies have been in the ground for 10 days and all have sprouted and from the looks of them will be flowering very soon. I will definitely keep this company in mind when ordering fall bulbs.
Well, if you just read all of the positive postings this company has, you won't really need my two cents because they say it all, which is that this company really has it all! Amazing website with so much great information, I could just read and learn for days. Terrific customer service like I don't know where you find anymore -- knowlegable, helpful and friendly too. Wonderful quality that is truly as great as the descriptions make them seem. My Giant Squill is the marvel of the neighborhood, and watsonia turn heads now that they are in full bloom. This is a GREAT company to do business with.
Give them a try -- you'll be glad you did!
These guys are the BEST!Their customer service cannot be beat. I ordered several packages of freesia bulbs and a pack of begonia bulbs. The freesias are growing like crazy and doing very well, the begonias not so much. I did contact Kathleen at their customer care regarding the begonia bulbs and she sent out another pack of begonias to replace the first batch that were duds. I have to comment that not only was she willing to help get the problem sorted out but very personable and friendly too, seems like this is a rarity in customer service these days. Sometimes things happen and order mixups or dud bulbs get mixed in with good ones but it's the level of customer care in getting the situation resolved that makes the difference. I would DEFINETLY shop with them again and refer other gardeners to them. Thanks so much!!!
I have purchased many items from Easy to Grow Bulbs. I have always received exceptional products, the ultimate in Customer Service; they are always ready and willing to assist and I recommend them with enthusisiam.
In short, "You can take what they tell you to the bank".
Ordered bulbs in late January and items were shipped as promised late February. Two bulbs were soft to the touch. Contaced Kathleen (Customer Service). She said they might still be ok to plant but would send out a replacements with free delivery the next day. She was kind enough to send me some extras -). Kathleen is always available to anwser questions about planting, size of pots etc. This is my first order from EASY TO GROW BULBS.COM. Looking forward to do more business with them. Just wish I had a big backyard to plant more! Excellent customer Service. A+++++

This company gets a green thumbs UP, an A+, and five-stars for their productive products (bulbs). I also loved their customer service (fast, friendly and quick). And, I totally enjoyed their easy to read and organized website that makes the buying process the best out there. I received bulbs that are huge, healthy, and beautiful. Their business statement says it all! I had a GREAT on-line shopping experience with Easy To Grow Bulbs.

I ordered some Oriental Lillies from Easy to Grow Bulbs. This was my first order. They were nice enough to email me right away to arrange shipping. I requested the bulbs as soon as possible and they were able to get them to me very quickly. The bulbs were huge! They arrived in excellent condition and were good looking bulbs! Everything was packaged great and everything labeled properly. Absolutely a great experience. They be getting a lot of my business!
We ordered Nir paperwhite narcissus from this company for my daughter's wedding, and used them for forced flowers and for wedding favors. We were impressed by the strength of the stems, size of the flowers, and the long blooming period. They were definitely superior to other paperwhites I have grown!

Ordered my first bulbs online from this company...that's after comparing prices and reading customer ratings here at DG...The order came much sooner than I was ready to plant them... They are good quality bulbs, pretty good size.. im not very familiar with sizes but the Freesias I got from Lowes is half of what i got from Easy to grow.. I will for sure buy next time ... but for now I'll wait how my bulbs do in spring..
I just recieved my order of bulbs today. It was on-time, well packed, and the bulbs look great. I don't know how big is big, but they are all a nice size. Customer service was great, they were kind enough to work my order around a vacation and emailed me before shipping out to make sure it was okay. I'll try to remember to report how the bulbs perform in the Spring!

Surprisingly, the bulbs have come out beautifully, quickly, and a good size. Even after a warm winter and in compacted soil. Even our species tulips are coming up beautifully. Only the fritillaria are absent, but I'm not sure if they should be up now or not. Definately will order from this company again.

I ordered five varieties of calla lilies, three bulbs each, from this company that bloomed this past spring and into summer. The roots were huge as advertised and all five types produced gorgeous flowers, particularly the yellow varieties. I was impressed and will order from them again - I got great value for my money.

Normally I don't add to a review, but again can't say enough good things about this company. I placed a much larger order from them for delivery this spring - Astilbes, Cannas, Callas - and the stuff was unbelievable. Some of the biggest and best I've received from anyone, and easily a match from what I've received from the best out there. I knew I was in for a surprise from the size of the box. These people ship a terrific product - hope they never let go of their quality standards. People should really give them a try.
let me start off by saying what a fantastic company this is. A year ago I ordered two giant sea squill, when they arrived they were the size of a grown mans head. I weighed the bulbs and each one was 9 pounds (wow). One of the bulbs had a large gash with mold in it so i called their customer service and they had a replacement sent right away. The replacement bulb they sent me was actually two mature bulbs stuck together, easily a 50+ dollar value. Order your bulbs during the planting season and try to stay away from sale items( only a few lived but I consider this customer error for ordering bulbs when they should have been in the ground months earlier). Great company, try them out.

Great company! I ordered from them and received a sad looking canna rhizome. I e- mailed them on 6/10/06 and in under 2 hours received an e- mail telling me they would replace it. Today is 6/14/06 and the new rhizome arrived. I live on Long Island, New York, they are in California. Not bad serivce! It seems there are 2 extra rhizomes in the bag. Bravo, Easy to Grow Bulbs!!! You have a loyal customer here and everyone should order from this company. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Dave, for letting me spread the good word and thanks Easy to Grow Bulbs for a great experience.

I was looking for begonia tubers, and they were one of the many that carried them. Their selection included Amerihybrids, which were nicer than other versions I have seen on the net. Their promise of large tubers could not be argued. I've never purchased tubers of such size.
I placed the order in Feb, but because of my zone, they would not ship til mid March, so the wait was a killer, but understandable.
Upon receiving my items, I noticed that one of the tubers was lighter than the rest. After noticing part of the skin peeled back, I decided to peek. Turns out the tuber had completely rotted. So I sent an e-mail with the issue.
I got a courteous response the following night, apologizing, and was told it would be replaced. I received the replacement in a couple of days, along with a letter from customer service. They didn't just replace the single tuber, they replaced the full package, which comes in packages of 3. So I received 2 extra!
Kudos to them understanding customer satisfaction and care!
