My Master Gardener Association tried to to use his company as a fundraising source and he turned out to be the most unreliable vendor we have ever dealt with. In January 2011, We had an agreement in place for caladiums to be ordered in March and delivered by April. When the time came to place the order, he stopped returning phone calls and emails. Very unprofessional. I had to desperately seek another source for the caladiums. It was now late in the ordering season and very few growers had caladiums left. I desperately was seeking a grower who could supply the types of Caladium I needed and at a cost similar to what I had agreed to with Caladiums 4 Less. If Bill Kurek would have been honest in the first place, I could have easily worked out an agreement with another company. Instead he left me in a huge bind. Bill Kurek will tell you whatever you need to hear but will not deliver on his promises. I later discovered that Caladiums 4 Less doesn't even grow all the things I was told. Thank goodness there are reputable growers in Lake Placid, Florida of which Caladiums 4 Less is not one.

We are sorry we weren't able to meet this group's needs, but we suffered a major crop loss as did everyone else in this area.

They don't tell you how I bailed them out BIG time in 2010 when they had an order in with another company that they couldn't fill. I went out of my way to help them out!! I even gave them the bulbs at a cheaper price than what they would have paid from the company that screwed them over. I did respond to there emails last year but they didn't like what they were hearing. Our harvest was off by about by about 40% last year and there just weren't any bulbs available. It's amazing how they neglect to mention that I bailed them out in a major way the year before but take the time to trash me for a situation that was out of my control. Like I said, "I did respond to there emails, they just didn't like the fact that there was nothing I could do""

I have ordered bulbs from caladiumbulbs4less in 2009 and 2010 that grew very well. In 2011 I ordered $119 of bulbs of which only one bulb came up. I have been corresponding with them since May 2011 to receive a refund. They said they would send me a refund but I have have still not received it. I even returned the apparently defective bulbs and that cost me an additional $20. I am very disappointed.

I placed an order back in January and was charged in full at that time. A few weeks ago (mid-June in Zone 6 territory) I wondered, "hey, what ever happened to those caladium bulbs I ordered?" I emailed the company two weeks ago but have received no response. Very disappointing, especially since I've had mostly great experiences from vendors I've researched here on DGW. I've emailed again today and will update if this problem is resolved quickly; even so, I'm none too pleased to have been put out almost $60 for half a year.

You can judge for yourself by just reading his word and the rage coming from him. The truth must hurt. What kind of a person would call his own customers name and make fun of them? Does he do this to all of his customers that have a complaint? This guy is not right and he scares me.

I placed an order for Moonlight caladiums and I was sent June Bride caladiums. If you know the difference between the two, Moonlight is much whiter than June Bride. I contacted Bill, who is the owner of this place. He was very rude and cocky and refused to do anything about it. I will never buy anything from this guy again. I recommend hightly that you look at Classic Caladiums and Happiness Farm, at least they grow their own bulbs, unlike this guy Bill who just buys from others and doesn't know how to grow his own.

This woman is NUTS!! She bought bulbs TWO years ago and waits until the beginning of this past March to tell me she received the wrong bulbs. Two Years!! She was shipped Moonlight but apparently she knows my business alot more than I do. After being called a liar, a thief and an A-hole, Yes, I did get a little rude. I flat out told her to call someone else!!!! I take alot of pride in what I do and Yes, I do grow some of my own Caladiums. Do I buy from other growers, Yes.

This customer signed up for DG just to trash me. I'm sorry if my rebuttal was a little harsh but this woman is the classic example of someone who was looking for something for nothing!! If anyone knows of a store where you can wait "more than two years" to complain and expect something for free, please let me know. I'd like to shop there"

NEGATIVE! I ordered the 40lb mixed caladium rainbow mix. I was stunned to find a simple (damp) large box intermixed with just bulbs and styrene peanuts. It took hours to carefully pick the bulbs out of the packing material.
