I ordered 7 different bulbs and tubers during an online special when the company was offering multiples of 3 and 5 at a big discount. I have been ordering from reputable suppliers for many years, so I know quality plants when I see them. Nevertheless, I was surprised when I opened the package and saw the size and freshness of the bulbs and tubers I received from Longfield Gardens. Most of them had fresh buds and I planted them the same day as received. After only 5 days some of them already have strong shoots poking out of the soil.

I ordered 2 upright elephant ear bulbs from Longfield Gardens that were supposed to be 9-11 inches. The bulbs were 3 1/2 inches long with a circumference of 7 1/2 inches. The bulbs are about the size of my amaryllis bulb. Not what I expected at all. Not like the picture. Very dissapointed. Won't order from them again. Maybe they were sized by munchkins!

Ok, I may have been to hasty to fire off a negative rating. After I sent LongField an email as to how disappointed I was with my order, I heard back from Jennifer at customer service. She was concerned about my disappointment and will prove to me that they provide quality products they stand behind. If she proves right, I will order from them again.

I jumped the gun! Longfield Garden's customer service addressed my problem within 24 hrs. Replaced my order within two days. Wow! I commend them on their service. Not too many companies honor their promises. I will be ordering from them again.
I placed a large order for various bulbs earlier in the fall and I was pleased with the quality and experience. I had some problems with the online order form but customer service was very helpful. I also want to add a comment about the amaryllis I ordered. I've always purchased these in box stores and this was the first time I've ever ordered one online. This amaryllis has been the quickest to bloom and now has a second stalk that is blooming. It has been a fantastic plant for the holidays!

I purchased Longfield daffodil bulbs at Home Depot, and was disappointed in how many were dead in the package. I contacted this company, and within 24 hours had a response with the promise to send replacement bulbs. I received the package within a week, and it contained many more bulbs than I had anticipated. In the future, I would purchase from this company again-- but directly, not through a third party. Thank you.

The website was easy to use, even with my smartphone. Prices were really reasonable and there was a good selection. After my order, I had some trouble with communication at first which was my fault: the company's emails kept getting filtered out as spam. Whenever I called the 1(800) number, I always spoke to a person in America (not outsourced like some other big bulb companies). The representative I worked with on the phone and through email (Jessica) was professional, prompt, and patient with me. She always responded to my calls/emails. My package arrived 7 calendar days after order! The packaging was good, and the product looked like it was high quality.I'm looking forward to spring blooms. Thanks Jessica and Longfield Gardens!
Ordered a multitude of dahlia, begonia, and gladiolus bulbs. Great variety, fair prices, and availability not found at other sites. Delivery time was reasonable. Haven't planted yet, but bulbs all look big and healthy, so very pleased! Emailed company to let them know boxes were slightly damaged (tape on bottom had let go on one end), and received immediate response. Definitely recommend this nursery.
