Received my order today and was really pleased with the size and quality of the bulbs. The dafs "little gem" were all very large and all were double nosed. What a surprise!

I placed an order on August 10th for 48 Crocus Sativus. The website said that they would be shipped by late August. It is now mid-September and I still have recived no shipment. After contacting the company several times I have still not recieved a reply regarding my order status. All I would have appriciated was an e-mail response letting me know what is going on.

I think that respondig to your customers concerns is the most simple form of business etiquite, particularly inlight of the fact that this was my first order from them. You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

This is what stinks about this company. They sent me an email asking for my information. I responded with the order confrmation number that they sent me as well as the order conformation e-mail that they sent me. I guess that's not enough information for them to figure out what they are doing over there. Now I have to call them to get this sorted out. I work 15 hours a day and now I have to waste my time to help them do their jobs better. I should have listened to the reviews on here and avoided this company.

We searched our records for an order placed for 48 Crocus Sativus in the Quakertown, PA area and could find none. We also could not locate an email inquiry from you either. There is a possibility that this internet order was not successfully received. Our website says these bulbs are released between late August through September timeframe. Please call 1-800-883-6998 and ask to speak with Mary, Customer Service Manager so she can assist you further.
We are extremely sorry for any frustration this has caused and are eager to help rectify the situation to your satisfaction. "

McClure and Zimmerman are probably my FAVORITE company to order bulbs from. They deal in wholesale quantities, so I frequently order and then split with my gardening buddies.

I find their prices extremely reasonable, their bulbs have always been top quality and in good condition. I have never had a problem finding out when things are going to come, but I also have never had to deal with their customer service people because I send an order, they acknowledge it and tell me when it will come, it comes and I plant it.

I have over 80 varieties of daffodils, hundreds of crocuses in my lawn, snow drops, oriental lilies, species tulips, asiatic lilies, turks cap lilies, iris reticulata, hyacinths -- all from M&Z, all returning year after year. The miniature daffodils and species tulips I ordered last year are up now, the early tulips are blooming.

I couldn't be happier with this company and have turned several people on to them.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I have also ordered colchicums and autumn blooming crocuses from them that were beautiful when they arrived and performed fabulously.

I ordered over $100 worth of bulbs. Upon arrival the bulbs were undersized and moldy or desicated. I understand that mold may sometimes occur, however these did not grow after planting. The several cannas tubers I ordered arrived either dessicated or without growing eyes. These did not grow either. The dahlia came up stunted and "curly". I am a veteran gardener and have received awards for my landscape. My yard has been on garden tours so am not a "newbie". When I contacted the company and cancelled the rest of my order that was scheduled for later shipping they replied "We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. If we can be of any further help, or if you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our company." They credited me for the unsent plant material.

I've ordered many times over the years from this company without problem. I tend to order bulbs rather than bare root plants and typically order fall bulbs rather than spring bulbs. However, I've been thrilled to find a number of Pleione species through the years and all have arrived while dormant (best time to ship Pleiones) and have increased well over the years. Thanks McClure & Zimmerman!

Over two years ago I ordered a couple of "Australia" canna tubers. They promptly shipped them and were in terrible condition when I received them (dried and without any obvious growth point). I did plant them but they didn't grow, (no surprise there). Customer service sent out a couple of more tubers, of which one grew (and turned out to be a Wyoming in coloration). "Either mislabled or not true" and was told it was too late to ship for last yr again, so waited till this yr. They reshipped, another totally dessicated tuber without growth points. Customer service said they'd ship another, then another letter came telling me that. "Sorry, it's too late in season to ship now". At this rate, even if they are honorable, it'd be years before they supply the desired product.! I cannot reccomend this company and in fact believe they are fraudulent and are not suppling products as advertised!

McClure and Zimmerman is another bulb resource I use every year. This year I ordered some Callas and 2 Monkey Puzzle trees. They were shipped on time for my area, and the trees were in wonderful, healthy shape. Out of the many bulbs, one was a little moldy, which usually isn't a problem, but it was also very soft.
I meant to email them right away (you should let a company know of any problems immediately), but a week or two slipped by until I finally emailed them. I received a quick apologetic email, and a fresh bulb shipped to me the next day. Great customer service in my book!
McClure and Zimmerman have a very good selection, often offering bulbs and plants no one else carries.
I recommend them strongly. I also recommend that you follow their advice on shipping- it's best if they ship the plants or bulbs to you when it is time to plant in your area. Don't try to jump the gun regarding the planting season!

In mid-January 2008 I ordered over $100 of bulbs on-line and requested a ship date of mid-April. No bulbs arrived in mid-April. I sent an inquiry note to Customer Service. A pacifying answer said, ":Your order is being processed". I waited patiently until first of May and wrote to Customer Service at McClure & Zimmerman questioning the status of my order. The sentence said: "Your order was shipped May 5". The bulb order finally arrived May 9. The bulbs were good sized but were covered with mold. They did not look healthy but I planted them anyway. I think I'll start praying to the Greek rustic god of the garden, PRIAPOS, and hope for the best.

My garden has won several awards. Many people pass by and admire all the variety and always ask where I get my plant material. When it comes to bulbs, I tell them to skip McClue & Zimmerman -- there are several other excellent sources. In the future I plan to skip this company and use the others who do a better job of processing orders.

Sorry, but no matter how wonderful their bulbs might be, I have not had nor will I have the chance to find out. I looked forward to some Gloriosa lilies, dahlias, and some other bulbs, but will not have time to plant them now and have them come up. It is April and my dahlias should have been planted here in CA at least a month ago. I will not order from people too lazy to to even say what their company hours are on the telephone, either. Instead, they tell you to check their website.

I am cancelling my order.

On April 3rd, 2008, hopflower added the following:

I finally got a reply from McClure & Zimmerman stating that I needed to check out their shipping times. I did this when I ordered and even called to find out my order number. Last month I finally recieved an order number and comfirmation through the mail. I had to call them after I sent my payment in to see that they got it as I had heard nothing. This morning I was told by email that the bulbs were shipped yesterday.

It seems that the company is rather late in getting pertinent mail out to people, which leaves us hanging. I did not know the status of my order or when it was being shipped, other than a vague period of three months, for months until I called. This is too late for my area; the nurseries are clear of bulbs now and have been for weeks. I have not had this problem with other companies at all. I am sure they have lovely bulbs, but I do not care for the service here and will not order again. Everyone else has shipped to me by now; and everyone else is back East as well.

Also, what if a person does not have a computer? Operating hours and shipping dates should be an option by telephone. I will plant the bulbs and hope they come up for next year's garden.

We are sorry you are dissatisfied with our services. Our phone number and hours are on page 3 of our catalog and under the customer service tab of the website.
Our shipping schedule information is located on the back of the order form and also under the customer service tab on the website. We can not ship bulbs or plant material when the temperatures are freezing, therefore our shipping can not start before mid-March, weather permitting. This year weather conditions in WI were extremely harsh, making shipping difficult.
If you would contact me with your name and zip code I will cancel your order, or call us at 1-800-883-6998 between the hours of 8:00 am to 4:30 pm CST or email us at [email protected]. Which ever is the most convenient for you."

I have ordered a lot from McClure and Zimmerman for five years or more. Each set of bulbs has come and been fruitful. Since I share my garden with a woodchuck family and roaming deer I have turned seriously to the Allium family of plants. This catalogue has a wide variety and is responsible ecologically about its sources. My garden is a (very local -- to my street) allium showplace. I recommend this source tops. I personally, like the hand drawn pictures of the flowers -- in fact I leave the catalogue in my office waiting room.

There have been very few mishaps - with 1000 or better ordered, I have called with a problem only 3 times. One of which was my fault(put in the wrong item #!) and when I called to order the correct item - they insisted on sending it at no charge!!

I purchased some dinnerplate dahlias from this company and another. M&Z was less expensive, allowed me to choose the colors I wanted, and sent larger, healthier looking tubers. I did have less luck with some other varieties I purchased (tuberose, peruvian daffodil, and a couple of colors of spiderlily), but I cannot be sure that the company was at fault, because I waited too long to plant those, and also, Florida is tough on bulbs. In any case, the dahlias were so stunning in the yard this fall that it more than made up for those that were smaller than I would have liked or didn't come up.

I have ordered from M&Z several times in recent years with good results.

My most recent order this spring was for dahlias and another summer-flowering bulb. Prices were reasonable and all bulbs/tubers were viable and have developed into healthy plants.

Shipments have been on time and packing is good. I have found M&Z to be a reliable company with some interesting offerings.

A spring '06 order for Louisiana iris resulted in my receiving very small rhizomes, many of which were in poor condition. For one variety, all were soft and largely rotted. Replacements were similarly rotted and did not sprout.
My order for Canna 'Australia' was not completed because the company claimed its expected supply did not arrive.

Poor stock and bad service.

I've ordered from McClure & Zimmerman for several years now, starting back in the late 90s when I had an extra fridge available to force species tulips and muscari for indoor bloom.

More recently I've ordered bulbs both in the spring and fall for container gardening and have had no problems with customer service or the shipments I received.

I've had occasional disappointments (bulbs here and there don't perform as expected), but overall the quality is consistently high. I always receive what I ordered or a refund for unavailable bulbs, since I specify 'no substitutions' on the comment line.

On the one occasion that I asked for a refund (one of my Eucharis amazonia bulbs did not sprout) they refunded money for the single bulb and apologized.

Amaryllis bulbs from M&Z are champs and consistently bloom twice a year, once after the dormant winter period and again in summer in a sunny location.

Last year I ordered four begonias and all of them overwintered and have put up new shoots for this summer.

I'm very satisfied with my experience and now that I'm moving to a house with a yard, I look forward to planting bulbs that require conditions my apartment wasn't able to provide.

I ordered lots of bulbs in the Fall of 2000 and again in 2001, so this is not recent information. However, both times I received some (total, 4) bags of bulbs labeled to be what I ordered (choice and special), but which came up as more ordinary/totally different varieties that I did not want. One example was N. hawera, a very delicate daffodill for a naturalistic garden area, and what I got was "Cheerfulness", which was double, stiff and artificial-loooking, compared to what I had wanted. Another substitution was ordinary paperwhites (whose smell I cannot stand) instead of Grand Soleil d'Or .

I was drawn to this company because they offered quite a variety of daffodils. (I was trying to "match" a mini-cluster variety to a set of bulbs I already had but didn't remember what they were.) Most varieties I ordered are OK and doing well (though I never found my match--that's OK). However, they sent me one much more expensive variety instead of a cheaper one I had ordered (but I didn't bother to call and complain). I also ordered Lily Tulip mix, but they turned out to be some other tulip variety entirely. I'm waiting on alliums and another wild daffodil to show signs of growth and bloom. This company is far more expensive than other bulb companies, so I probably won't order from them again.

I wish there was a rating between neutral and negative, because my experience wasn't really awful, but I doubt I'll buy from this company again. I ordered six different tulip bulb varieties two years ago. The bulbs were smallish, but I've seen worse, and all appeared healthy, so that was OK. The problem was in the spring when the tulips bloomed, four of the six varieties I ordered were not what I had ordered! The biggest disappointment was the bunch of supposed Parrot tulips that I planted in a prominent spot in my garden. What came up were some plain pink tulips. They're pretty, but I was expecting (and paid for) Parrots. Everything grew just fine, but I want to know I'll actually get the bulbs that I ordered.

My mail-order experience with this company has, I feel, set the standard by which all others will be judged. Two orders of lilies were sent quickly (within a week) and well packaged. Of 18 bulbs ordered, two were unusable. I contacted Customer Service and was promptly told replacements would be shipped as soon as possible. They, too, arrived within a week, were larger and more plump than the bulbs I had ordered previously. I even had a stowaway bulb that wanted to live in my garden! Cheerful, friendly staff, excellent quality product, followed by quick delivery goes a long way in building a loyal clientele. I will definitely be ordering from McClure and Zimmerman in the future.

I've been ordering from McClure and Zimmerman for a few years now, and the vast majority of plant failures I've experienced have been my own danged fault (putting my bulbs in the garage and forgetting about them until March--that kind of stupidity). The most recent shipment was received about when I would expect to receive it, and the bulbs were of good quality and in good condition with the exception of one daffodil bulb which had rotted. Since I let the entire shipment sit in its original box for two weeks prior to planting/discovery and the rot wasn't far advanced, I can't fault the company for that either.

I keep going back to McClure and Zimmerman mostly for the selection, and the ability to purchase small quantities of bulbs. Prices are okay, not excessive and not wonderfully inexpensive.

My mother ordered two of the dwarf Agapanthus collection (collection = 1 white, 1 blue) for me as a Christmas gift and was told they would ship in March. In May I received only the white half of each collection. They arrived with an invoice that showed prices even though she had made it clear this was a gift and the billing and shipping names/addresses were different. Of the two bulbs one was very mushy and neither one grew. By the end of June the blue ones had still not arrived and I called to cancel the order and request a refund (which I don't know whether or not she's received). All in all not much more could have gone wrong with this transaction; and, although the variety available in their catalog is enticing, I would avoid ordering from them in the future.

I hate to make a negative comment about a company I've heard good things about, but I ordered from them for the first time this spring and was very disappointed. First off, the bulbs were tiny compared to similar ones I've received from other companies, or can find in stores and nurseries. Tiny cut-up sections of Kniphofia rhizome with a single bud each barely grew, and finally gave up the ghost after putting out a few small leaves. Minuscule bulbs of Polianthes (tuberose) have put out foliage but I doubt they will bloom this year. Finally, the bulbs I purchased as Lilium 'Citronella' grew well and budded heavily but when they bloomed they were an obviously mislabeled orangish asiatic lily. I will not order from this company again.

MZ Bulb publishes a catalog twice a year. They have an extensive offering of bulbs - many more varieties than I have seen elsewhere.
My first order was placed over the internet, confirmed next workday, shipped on a timely and prompt basis (one week after order), and with notification and access to trace the shipment; but the exotic which prompted the order was not available upon shipment. I revisited the website, and identified that this status had not been posted to their website, and responded to their customer service e-mail line, as it was not clear if the stockout was a temporary issue. I also expressed disappointment in that the company offers bonus shipments on orders exceeding $20, but they did not comply with this offer in filling my order.
The response I received merely indicated that the website should have been updated, and that I was not billed for merchandise not shipped. No response was made regard the non-shipment of the bonus product.
The website was updated regard to product availability when I checked it again a week later.
It is apparent from other reviews that the stockout problem is not a unique one - I would recommend that orders be placed months before the shipping period, and would hope that in the future, product availability would be included as part of order confirmation.

Great place to order those hard-to-find bulbs, especially natives, some of which sell out quickly. Most of my bulbs didn't show up the first summer and I called them.

I've ordered from McClure & Zimmerman over the years, and though I've generally liked what I've gotten, they can be unreliable and sloppy. One year I ordered ""Roman hyacinth,"" but instead they sent me regular Dutch hyacinth bulbs that had been split so that they would produce multiple stalks. Twice I have ordered Achimenes, both times they have failed to grow. And another year I ordered 6 mixed Early Spring tulips, but what I got appeared to be 2 Mentons (Single Late) and 4 Golden Apeldoorns - nice, but not what I ordered. When I've complained to them, they tell me they don't grow the product, they just sell it. But despite the problems, I keep ordering from them, off and on, because they have such a great variety of interesting varieties, and they sell small quantities at reasonable prices. I think that John Scheepers actually has the best prices, but they require a $35 minimum order, and I don't always need that much. That's when I order from M&Z.

I placed an order for the first time last Fall. My eremurus and iris are coming up now right on schedule. This is a bare bones catalog in that it is black and white paper with only random sketches of plants.
This is not the catalog to go to if you are unfamiliar with botanical names or need a picture to identify the plant. However, you will receive great descriptions of plants and their requirements. You'll also see lower prices than other companies! Your order will be shipped at proper planting time, too. I'd rather know what I'm shopping for, find it in a catalog and then pay a lower price for a quality product from a trustworthy company.
