Just received a great surprise. Our daughter sent us 20 Grade 2 Moonlight Caladiums. We were impressed with the quality of the bulbs (and the price she paid.). They are now in the ground and we are anxiously waiting for them to come up. Of course we must lift them in the winter here in zone 7.

Placed an order for 4 varieties of #2 bulbs and requested early shipping. Received healthy bulbs, well packed and protected. Happy with the transaction, and will be placing a larger order for next spring.

Ordered from Caladiums Bulbs 4 Less last year and was very pleased with the size of bulbs, the timeliness of the shipment, and the incredible color of the caladiums. I have been checking the website, off and on, to see when I could make an order for this year. The website is "up" and I wanted to get my order in early to get the varieties I had my eye on. This is a great company with excellent products, service, and reliability. I made my order and arranged for the bulbs be shipped out to me in late April.

April 15, 2011. I ordered caladium bulbs on Tuesday night (the 12th) and my well-packed box arrived by noon on Friday! (the 15th)This was an order of nearly 200 bulbs! That is fantastic service from Florida to KY. I can't be more pleased. Thank you Bill!

My 2012 order was a carbon copy of my 2011 order. I ordered 125 #1 bulbs on Tuesday and my box arrived by noon on Friday. These are huge,healthy caladium bulbs, heavy for their size. Some of them were as big as my fist! I'd never consider using another company. Thanks for great service!!!

My 2014 order was a carbon copy of the wonderful service and great bulbs that I have come to expect from Caladium Bulbs 4 Less. Everything was carefully packed in a sturdy container and quickly shipped. Bill always checks the weather conditions before he sends out an order so we do not have any cold-snap surprises in route. I'm a loyal, repeat customer and plan to remain so as long as I'm gardening.

Outstanding product and service! I've been remiss in not reviewing Caladiums 4 Less sooner, as I've been placing increasingly large orders over the past several years... larger each time as word has spread among family and friends who want to order with me!

This year's bulbs were as nice if not nicer than last year! They arrived timely and have proven to be larger than promised. Extra bulbs in this order, too.

May 11, 2011 Once again Bill has delivered the biggest bulbs imaginable. He's a great guy, very easy to do business with and he's always been a gentleman.
I've bought from Bill for years now and have no desire to do business with any other caladium company. His bulbs are huge, true to name and I am a totally satisfied customer.
On May 11th, 2012, pirl added the following:
Bill's huge box of caladiums arrived today. What a guy! The corms are huge and he sent a gift of some I've never had so I can try them.
Bill is the best.
The bulbs are fresh, huge, arrived very well packaged and ready to plant.
I wish every company was as reliable as Bill.
On May 11th, 2013, pirl added the following:
Bill is just the best as are his bulbs.
My 2013 order arrived yesterday and it's excellent, as always, with some extra bulbs in each package. I planted 16 today and will get the others planted ASAP. I'm looking forward to another dazzling display. Bill's bulbs never disappoint!

I ordered 100 bulbs of three different varieties via phone in the morning for pick up by another person the next day. The bulbs were ready as promised.

In Spring 2011 I ordered Purple Majesty Caladium and they grew fine but remained tiny, about 3 inches. I called Bill for advice and he spent time explaining the difficulty that new variety was proving to be. He said to call him this spring and he would take care of things. I called and he sent out 15 huge bulbs that I chose, at no cost. I have found Bill to be very helpful, friendly and he stands behind his products. I am 100% pleased with Caladium Bulbs 4 Less.

I was a little hesitant to order from this company, as there seemed to have been some unhappy customers in 2011. I was assured by the owner and other regular buyers that it was a trustworthy company with good products.

I decided to try growing caladium bulbs this year, and chose this company based on the reviews here on DG. I ordered 10 "Miss Muffet" and 10 Mixed Pink. They arrived on schedule and seemed very healthy. A month or two later, they sent the order again; when I asked about it, they said keep the bulbs, no charge- terrific! The bulbs are leafing out beautifully, and I'm sure I'll want to order from Caladium Bulbs 4 Less again!

We have purchased caladiums from Bill for the past 3 years and are absolutely thrilled with the product. I also speak from first hand experience when I say that talking with Bill has been a very positve and informative experience. We try to stop by the warehouse on our many trips to Key West from Orlando. Bill has always been willing to meet us there to make it easy for us to pick up some new plants. In fact he even met us on Monday (Memorial day) when we were returning from our recent trip) and we were fortunate enough to get some of his last plants of this season. My wife and I both deal with the public on a daily basis and know full well how demanding that can be. Too many times the public will think they can imtimidate shop owners into giving away the store because they come up with some crazy complaint. In the long run the stores that cave into these unreasonable demands just cause the rest of us to have to pay a little more. I for one like it when an owner will defend themselves and NOT be bullied into correcting something that wasn't wrong in the first place. The person that said the Customer is always right has not worked with the general public in the past 50 years. For those FEW of you whinning about this...find another company. Caladium Bulbs for Less is a great group of people. They have a superious product and customer service to match. Thanks SO MUCH! My yard is beautiful!

The most amazing selection of caladiums and very friendly staff. We have been ordering for 4 years and this just makes our spring each year. Bulbs are always in good conition with pretty much 100% success.

Absolutely the BEST place for Caladiums and Tuberoses. Further, the customer service is the BEST you'll find. I read the only negative review and it's a joke.

I ordered a large variety of bulbs. They were carefully packed and shipped quickly, nice large bulbs and every one looks healthy and firm. Planted them out and drew every raccoon within five miles by including some bone meal .... but soon they were re-planted, sans bone meal. I've just snapped off the first sprouts of the "red side of the bed" and very happy with the service from Caladium Bulbs 4 Less.

I purchased a box of Caladium bulbs from the 'DG Classifieds' here. A large flat rate box - very heavy - arrived. When I opened it my eyes almost popped out! It was just packed as full as can be with bulbs. It had to be hundreds...I planted about a month ago and it looks like every single one has come up. A huge mass of color. Just gorgeous. I would order again and again from here. I love this huge instant planting bed!

In March I ordered 30 #1 Florida Fantasy Caladiums to be sent to me on May 15th. A few days before they were to be shipped, Bill informed me that the #1 bulbs of that variety, were not up to their standards, so he was shipping me 60 #2 bulbs at the same price. They arrived on May 16 in great condition, and they look as large as #1 bulbs I have ordered in the past from other suppliers. I am very pleased.

My caladiums in August are absolutely beautiful! overflowing the flower pots on my porches with plants full of huge, heatlhy, colorful leaves.

Over the years I had bought a lot of Caladiums from various growers and I have to tell you that the ones I got from biLL were the most generous in size of all. I had ordered 400 mixed #2 bulbs and all bulbs were firm and healthy. Some of the early varieties had started to make a sprout, but that's OK, it's time for them since you can not stop Mother Nature. Packing was great and no bulbs were damaged in transit. I'll be back next year.

Although I spent my first ten years on the *original* caladium farm in Lake Placid, my life and interests went in other directions than the family business -- long since sold -- and I knew virtually nothing about caladiums. Thus, when my older daughter said she wanted to use some of the varieties her grandfather had developed at her wedding, my wife and I were at a bit of a loss.
