I purchased several daylillies, a Japanese iris and a peony. They all arrived in great shape, amazing sizes and were packaged extraordinarily well. I received the order this week and already placed another order. Very impressed.

My story is too long too explain, but my experience with Easy to Grow Bulbs has been SO positive that I just had to share! I experienced a problem with the shipping of an order to North Carolina. It was a FED EX problem, not theirs, but they happily resent an order and did not charge me. Their email and phone communications were extremely pleasant and prompt. My tiny, insignificant order was treated as though it were the largest order they's ever received. Kathleen is an angel!
The quality of the bulbs is exceptional and the lovely tradition of Christmas paperwhites for our family now has even more meaning thanks to this wonderfully compassionate company.
I look forward to buying from them for many years.

I am very impressed with this company's products and customer service. The bulbs I ordered shipped promptly and were in good condition. The paperwhites were huge - twice the size of the bulbs I have bought at my local garden center. I also appreciated the "adventure pack" of extra bulbs sent with my order.

The daylily mix I bought was accidentally shipped with one missing daylily. Customer service immediately replied to my email and told me to choose any daylily from their site to send as a replacement (despite the fact that I had purchased an inexpensive random mix). I will definitely be placing many orders with Easy to Grow Bulbs in the future!

This company is great. I emailed them twice on bulbs I did not even ORDER from them, and I got a prompt, accurate, friendly, and most importantly - unautomated response. REPEAT - I did not even order bulbs from them, yet they responded to me as if I had been a customer for years. I will be ordering from them in the spring or next fall because I am very impressed

I recently put in an order with this company for a number of spring-flowering bulbs and bare roots. When I received the order (which was very fast), I was so impressed with the size and condition of both bulbs and roots. I have been ordering fall plantings for years, so I have a sense for what is typical. This order really exceeded my expectations on all counts. The peonies were especially amazing. I've never seen a bare root peony as big as the Early Scout they sent. Even though the other peonies were slightly smaller than this attractive monster, they were also bigger than anything I've bought from other vendors. I also very much appreciated the extras – healthy and interesting corms. Another plus - their customer support is friendly and helpful! I’m already planning my next order.

I ordered my iris late Thurs evening and, without paying for special handling, they arrived on Monday! Each was healthy and still green. Since I live in a warm climate (Mesquite, NV), they went into the ground immediately and are already beginning to sprout new follage (in two weeks).

This was my first experience with Easy to Grow Bulbs. I placed an order last Friday morning and my order was delivered at 7:55 am SATURDAY morning.....less than 24 hours after placing my order. The bulbs were huge and fresh.....they even sent a freebie.

I sent an email of thanks for the great service/product and asked about other bulbs I was looking for. I got a very nice reply with an offer to remind me when these very popular bulbs were available. Now, that is customer service! I love this place and can't wait to order again.

Simply Super services! Outstanding!

We placed an order in the 2nd week of August. Our order was acknowledged within a day we placed the order. A prospective shipment date was assigned to be Sept. 22, 2008. And there we go! The bulbs and other items were shipped exactly on September 22 (and we were also informed about the shipment). We received the order on Sept. 26, 2008. No bloopers: all bulbs were there (with extremely clear planting instructions), the sizes of the Trumpet Lily bulbs were spectacular. The bulbs appeared to be quite firm and healthy.

Finally, it must be mentioned that although the products were of top qualities, the prices were not. From now on, whenever we need to order something, we will order it from EasytoGrow (if they carry the product).

On October 1st, 2008, Scheherazade added the following:

I felt like adding some more comments on my follow-up (i.e. after-sale) experiences with this company. Since I received the bulbs, Kathleen communicated to me via eight more prompt emails helping me to find some other suitable products that will go along nicely with my trumpet lilies. She even recommended products that are not carried usually by her own company. She did extensive search for me and sent me some other company’s internet pages that carry the desired products. I must say that my order with Easy to Grow was a small order. If Kathleen gives such a royal treatment to a small customer like me, I wonder what type of treatments is in her bag for the large customers.

I recently placed a small order at Easy To Grow I received an email almost immediately to advise on various shipping dates, rates, and options for my order. The customer service representative, Kathleen, was friendly, personal, and highly professional. The first part of my order arrived very quickly, and the quality of the bulbs were far better than I really expected. I scoffed at the idea of a 28-centimeter Belladonna, but indeed I received three bulbs ranging in size from 28 to 31 centimeters! The rest of the order was also as promised and packed well for shipment. The prices are quite reasonable, especially given the quality of product.

I've relentlessly picked Kathleen's brain on other bulbs that might perform well here in the Caribbean, and her replies have been speedy, informative, enthusiastic and linked to photos and detailed descriptions on their fantastic website.

It seems clear that this company is dedicated to extraordinary customer service. They have consistently taken the time (and money) to respond personally to a very small customer like me. Naturally, I've just ordered more bulbs based on their recommendations, and have every confidence in this company.

Things can always go wrong in business, but I feel certain that if something does, Easy To Grow Bulbs will do it's utmost to make it right. I only wish I had a bigger garden.

On October 23rd, 2008, CaribSherri added the following:

This company continues to amaze me. Today I received my third order; it traveled from California to the Caribbean in exactly one week. Extraordinary speed for this destination!

This order was again largely due to Kathleen's knowledge & recommendations for my climate, and again, the bulbs are lovely. The paperwhite narcissus, in particular, were base-ball sized, firm, fresh bulbs; but six amaryllis were also big and solid, and I'm wild to see the oxalis spring forth! While planting these, I discovered that my previous orders are already poking their little green leaves out - despite a few unpleasant days in less-than-ideal protective custody while Hurricane Omar blew past!

The customer service is SO good, and the products are SO consistent that I will soon be absolutely AWASH in flowers. I can't wait to see what the spring offerings will be!

I purchased freesias and phlox at the very end of the spring selling season. Both arrived very shriveled in appearance. I planted them anyway, thinking the company must know their business. Only one freesia sprouted. My complaint was met with a response that essentially said, "too late; you must have done something wrong."

No offer to replace or refund.

I won't use this company again.

It's disturbing to hear that this customer did not have a satisfactory experience buying from us. We've reviewed the transaction and found the following.

This order was placed at the end of the spring season, on 6/18, and it shipped promptly. The first communication from the customer was sent two months later, on 8/22, stating that the plants and bulbs were received in poor condition and had not grown well.

Our website, packing slips and customer service agents all stress that visible problems with any order should be raised within 7 days. This allows us to correct the situation promptly. While the customer was aware of this, she waited months to raise her concerns.

Our customer service staff asked several questions in an effort to troubleshoot the situation. (Unlike most in the industry, our service goals include helping to figure out what went wrong so gardeners can enjoy future successes.) We awaited the customer's response and another month passed with no further communication. Then the customer sent an email demanding a refund.

The email stream concerning this transaction does not support the customer's account of the situation. The statement that no replacement offer was made is contradicted by written records which show otherwise. We are sorry this buyer is unhappy with the situation, but do agree that she is probably better served by sourcing her future plants elsewhere."

I truly have recommended this company to all of my friends who garden. I've been impressed with every order, and I can't say enough great things about them. The Triumphator lilies I ordered a couple of months ago are thriving. More recently, I ordered some glads and dahlias, and I was definitely impressed. The tubers and bulbs were huge and very healthy looking. Between the large clumps and the smaller tubers, there were more sprouts than I could count. The bulk of the plants in my garden have come from this company and their affiliated site. Everything I've planted has come up beautifully, and when you're a new gardener like myself, this seems like a REAL blessing. Whenever I receive compliments on my flowers, I know who to really thank! On top of the great quality of their products, their customer service can't be beat. Kathleen always answers emails promptly and personally, and makes you feel like more than just a customer. I'm always happy to do business with them!

I've made several orders with easy to grow bulbs and they have all been nice sized bulbs or plants and have done well in my yard. I've only had trouble with the Freesia I ordered, but that was only because I didn't read up on them beforehand - they do best in zone 9 or 10 where as I am in zone 7b. I've dug them up and will relocate them to a hotter part of my yard. I recommend them to anyone in warmer climates, because they offer a lot of items for the southern gardener.

I'm pretty new to gardening, and decided this year to order small batches of a bunch of different plants to try from several different companies so I could learn who to deal with in the future. Of the companies I ordered from, the bulbs I received from this company were by far the biggest, healthiest, and nicest looking overall. Out of the 50 or so mixed bulbs I ordered, 3 seemed a little off to me. 2 of the 12 Ornithogalum bulbs I ordered seemed a little stale. Also, 1 of the 3 ginger lily bulbs was a little undersized when compared with the other two very large bulbs in the bag. Everything else looked great and I was extremely pleased with the purchase. I let Kathleen know in an e-mail that I was very happy overall, but also about the 3 bulbs that I felt were a little off for her own quality control purposes. I did not ask for refund or replacement of any kind. About 2 weeks later I received a box in the mail. It contained 36 Ornithogalum bulbs to replace the 2 bad ones I had received, and another bag of 3 large and healthy ginger lily bulbs to replace the one slightly undersized one. This is with no prompting or or complaining from me. I would have to say that in all of my life, this is the best customer service that I have ever encountered from any business of any kind. Feel safe trusting this company to treat you to excellent bulbs and unmatched customer service, I certainly will again in the future.

The first time I ordered from this company, I forgot an item and had to make a second order a few minutes later. Upon request, customer service promptly (within an hour) combined the orders so I could save shipping and sent an updated email invoice. Kathleen in Customer Service also informed me in detail about a backordered item, and gave me several options about how I wanted the B/O handled.

The order shipped the next businessday (Monday), and arrived on the East Coast by Friday. One of the carpet roses I got sprouted new baby leaves within two days! And the Priscilla gladiolus are bigger, healthier, and more impressive than anything I've bought locally in over a decade of growing glads.

I've already made another order, and look forward to continued quality service from this company.
