I ordered during prime shipping season in Oct-Nov and received my shipments right away. The amaryllis all did very well, as did the narcissus, which were the biggest bulbs I'd ever seen. I had no luck with forcing the freesia but not blaming the company as it was my first time with freesia indoors. Happy enough with the hyacinths. Due to their rapid shipping and prices, will definitely use them again this fall.

I took a chance on ordering from Easy to Grow Bulbs, and am VERY happy I did! I fell in love with the description of allium Silver Spring on the Scheepers website, but ordered the bulbs from Bluestone Perennials because it was much cheaper (and I am a fan of Bluestone). About a month ago I got a message from Bluestone they could not fill my order. Checked Scheepers, they were sold out. Tried ordering from Brent and Becky’s, who accepted my order, but then told me they were sold out. I saw them on Easy to Grow Bulbs and gave it a try, ordering 3 packages from them, mostly expecting a message that they were also sold out. Much to my surprise, I received the bulbs last week, and they look fine! All the thumbs up to Easy to Grow Bulbs for supplying the bulbs I wanted when all my usual, very reputable suppliers failed. I plan to give them more of my bulb orders in the future!

It was already a gamble for me, in Colorado, to order bulbs from a California company. When I read the Dave's Garden reviews it was even more clearly a gamble.

Well, I’m sad to see reports of those who had negative experiences w/ETGB. Ours was overwhelmingly positive! The tuberous begonias would knock your socks off! The blooms are huge! We’re talking in excess of 6” across in dazzling colors. We ordered cannas, all stunning & healthy. But the begonias are breathtaking. We took them (several hundred) to a local greenhouse & had them potted up late March/early April. We acknowledged risk of frost during shipment (which we had! Late April snowstorm; who’d have thought?). The vast majority did beautifully & were in full bloom when we transplanted them into the garden [they were all potted into 4.5” square pots]. The cannas have taken right off; stunning, healthy foliage & expect to have them bloom soon (they normally bloom Aug.-Oct. for us]. Anyway, I couldn’t be happier w/the results. I’ve never had or seen tuberous begonias this big or as vigorous as these. I would upload photos as proof but I’m not that tech savvy. Anyway; no complaints here. The tubers that we ordered from them are breathtaking; not exaggerating...I’ve never seen anything like them & have been in the professional horticulture trade for 40 years.

I've had a really good experience with Easy to Grow Bulbs. I have purchased a Fig Tree, Freesias, Paperwhites, Amaryllis, Ixia, Sparaxis, and a few others. All have proven to be successful so far! I'm very excited to see my new Amaryllis bloom. Customer service has always been great, and all of my items have been as described. I will definitely purchase from them again!

Ordered spring bulbs for the first time from them this year. Bulbs all appeared to be in nice condition. They were way larger than I thought they would be. I had a couple of bulbs that didn't come up why I'm not sure and when I contacted easy to grow bulbs the immediately refunded the money back to my card for those two bulbs. With customer service like this I for sure will be ordering bulbs next year from this company.

A few days after emailing them about the rotten bulbs I was contacted by Trevor, and he suggested to send a bag of daffodils as a replacement. I have received it already, and the bulbs look good. I wait for spring to see how all the bulbs will bloom.

So spring is almost over, and I must say all bulbs bloomed wonderfully. Even the iris I planted in the fall is blooming now which I didn't expect at all. I'll be ordering from them again!

All my bulbs and roots arrived large and healthy. I am amazed at the large plants I now have of dahlias, four of clocks, and lilies. Not sure about the Elephant Ear (has not surfaced yet) or the Tuberoses (2 finally have appeared)I have no experience growing these last two so the verdict is out on those although I am a patient gardener. I would order again.

I am absolutely ecstatic about the order I just received from Easy to Grow Bulbs. I ordered several plumeria in a few different colors and they look amazing and the packaging clearly shows that their shipping department cares about the plants. =)

I can't address any one else's (bad) experiences but my experience with this company has been nothing but good. I've placed a lot of orders this year and probably spent around $600 or $700 and not had a complaint. All my orders have arrived promptly and the vast majority of the bulbs have been quite nice. Every once in a while, in a package of multiples, there might be a single bulb that isn't "all that" but that's about it.

I just do not know how much I can rave about the customer service I received. I have read the negatives and the 16, yes 16 times I have called about my order,cause I kept changing my mine. The young girl has been so helpful. She helped me on the soil temperature, the diffrent types of Amrylis and fruitilarias. She made sure that my order was complete also called me to make sure my address was spelled right. When I got my package it was packed so pretty ,like they really care so much about the bulbs making it safe to my home.Those Amrylis I got ,oh my they were big and so pretty and I can not wait for the flower to pop out. I guess being nice to folks they take care of you. I have recommended them to my garden girlfriends. I even got a facebook to follow them. Nice company,nice people ,great bulbs for both my plants well done on the packaging too. Thumbs up in my book.

Well there are more stories for this order. After checking the tracking number Rachael sent me, I found that it might not be my order (I live in California, the package is sent to Georgia). I called them and after talking to two representatives, they finally found that my order was not shipped at all. Then they finally agreed to add the two items to my original order without charging extra shipping fee.
What if I did not call them? I may never receive anything I paid for.
So the bottom line is that they sell decent bulbs and flowers. But their customer service system seems to be a mess. Be careful when you buy from them and hopefully you are lucky enough to receive your order.

And the drama goes on...
After more than one month's delay on the shipping of my order, I got an email saying that an amaryllis in my order was refunded 'as I asked'. I never asked them to cancel anything in my original order, though. But I figured that it might be just because it is no longer available. So I decided not to bother the customer service people about it and just accept the bad news, while praying the rest of my order can be shipped soon.
But they were not.
I waited for one more week without any update and it is getting quite late in the season, even for California. I emailed but never got reply. I called and the phone was not picked up. After trying it again and again for 3 days I finally got a chance to talk to Rachael, who checked my order and told me it was not shipped because one item was back ordered. Wait, didn't you just cancelled the amaryllis b/c it was back ordered? Why couldn't you do the same thing now and get the rest of the order out of the door? Why didn't you ever contact me to explain the situation and let me decide whether to wait or cancel? As I have said twice above, their customer service is a terrible mess now. Based on this fact I would not expect their plants to hold the high quality as they were.
That's sad. I do have plans to order more things from them for the coming spring. Now I have to look for substitutions.

I finally received my bulbs after this 'war'. The bulbs are in good condition. And they include some bonus alliums. I also got a phone call from their owner explaining the issue and apologized. While I did not take their offer of some free bulbs, I feel glad that they do have people who really cares about the business. As a gardener on the west coast I'm always desperately seeking for suppliers that really understand our special climate. When I found Easy to grow bulbs I was so happy: 'This is the place! I don't need to search anymore.' Hope their could keep their high quality of both products and services in the future.

Posting a neutral review here seemed to help the process, or perhaps draw attention to the email I had previously sent. Dena was very apologetic about the problem with my dahlias, which is appreciated, and refunded my money for the tubers (not the original shipping costs, but I feel that's understandable). I appreciate the effort. Things don't always go right with orders and that's regrettable but I appreciate when companies work to make things right.

The owner of EasyToGrowBulbs, Jim just gave me a very gracious call wanting to fix the issues I had with my order. Because of this, I have changed my rating from negative to positive and will consider ordering from them in the future. Jim was very concerned that he do whatever he could to make me a happy customer, which definitely leaves an impression on me. We agreed on a partial refund that was very satisfactory to me.

Early in June, I placed an order with Easy Grow Bulbs for a Passiflora Hybrid "Betty Miles Young". When I placed my order, I asked what would be the best way to plant this Passion Flower and Christina told me to get a large pot to plant it in because of the zone in which I live The plant arrived in great condition. I planted it and placed the pot near a fence. The plant has gown beautifully and I now have 38 buds on it in various stages of development. I also purchased a "Chicago Fig Tree" which produced delicious figs this year. I am so pleased with Easy Grow bulbs their quality plants, service and the information provided by Christina. I will definitely be placing orders again.

I ordered about 40 amaryllis bulbs in March to be used as baby shower favors. (a mix of appleblossom and pink pizzazz). The bulbs are gorgeous, fat, and healthy. It is obvious they were grown and selected with care. The shower was on March 20th and many of the attendees are already posting pictures of their amaryllis is full bloom. I highly recommend Easy to Grow Bulbs, especially if you need to buy in bulk for a party or shower. This ended up being the best favor I could have used since the celebration continues after the party is over.

We've all seen mail order nurseries where the shipping cost is as much or more than the plant...really! They are packed no better than this vendos plants and sometimes worse! Shipping is obviously not a profit center for ETGB. Shipping is very reasonsble here (as fair as I've seen). Also, for that one plant you absolutely have to have you can order individual plants unlike others who say "you want one, sorry but you'll have to buy three".

I live in Las Vegas, NV where Spring arrives early, it is short and if you do not plant before the desert heat arrives your newly planted items burn out. Easy To Grow Bulbs went way beyond the best customer service I ever experienced to facilitate my order and kept me informed at every step. I am most grateful for their efforts. They have interesting bulbs providing year round colors to the garden like ARUM ITALICUM and the hard to find LILY OF THE VALLEY GROUND COVER. Their prices are reasonable. In addition they are sending me a pack of free bulbs, no idea what they are but I love surprises! No question about it, I will be a returning customer!

I live in Colorado with a short growing season, so I like to start my plants indoors. All the other websites were willing to send my begonia tubers earlier than was appropriate for this zone (if they had some available) for and expedited price. Easy to Grow Bulbs sent them right away with no additional charge. They were here in 2 days, and they look great. I'll order from them again.

I am the garden manager for the Horticultural Art Society Public Gardens in Colorado Springs. I ordered 300 Daffodils from them - and wow! They were the biggest, most beautiful bulbs I have ever seen. So happy I have found this company. Plan on ordering some peonies shortly - not only for my work garden, but also for my home. Very, very pleased.

I am having a party in December and wanted to have paperwhites blooming in time for them to be centerpieces for the tables. I wasn't sure exactly when I should order them so that they would be blooming in time, so I emailed Easy to Grow Bulbs. They responded to my email immediately, and told me that I could order the bulbs that day, and they would ship them so that I could plant them at the appropriate time for them to be blooming at the party.

This past spring I ordered 2 Antioch hostas, 2 Concertina bearded irises, plus 2 of the Bicolor Butterfly Bushes. All plants arrived well packaged, with no damage. Shipping was quick. Since then all plants are growing great! I did run into a problem, though......when the butterfly bush bloomed, I realized it wasn't a Bicolor. I had been sent two Lavender ones, and they had been mismarked. I contacted the company, and they were wonderful to work with. Dena was very quick to respond, and after seeing the picture of my blooms, assured me I wasn't imagining things. She immediately sent two replacement Bicolors. Fantastic service, Dena was just a peach to talk to, and I can't wait to place more orders!

I had success with a plumeria plant from ETGB, but with Fox Tail Lilies I ordered last year not so much. I ordered and planted three lilies last fall and this spring nothing grew. I sent a e-mail on June 2, 2015 to ETGB and I received a quick response. The person asked to know the condition of the roots. I checked them and found them to be unchanged from when I planted them. I sent a note informing ETGB of my findings, To date I have I not received another response. I have never left a poor review for a company, but in this instance I feel that the lack of follow up warrants it.

After leaving my previous comment about a lack of communication from ETGB, I got a very nice e-mail from Kathleen of ETGB. She explained to me that the person assigned to respond to e-mail inquiries was new and was a bit overwhelmed and not as timely as she should have been. Anyway she offered a credit for the fox tail lilies that I ordered, which failed to grow. I was initially happy with that until I discovered that this late in the season they are sold out of the plants I would like to order. So hopefully, I will be able to use the credit in the future when the plants become available.
