Last year I ordered 150 Red Emperor bulbs from this company. When they emerged this spring, they were white, orange and yellow and all of varied sizes. I planted them in a display area, amid large brambly roses at great personal risk only to find I planted colors I would never have chosen! I called the company and asked for either a refund or replacement bulbs. They explained that Red Emperor could entail many different colors. I was obviously talking with someone who didn't know tulips. They refused to refund my money or send me replacements. I can only hope the squirrels dined on the bulbs and they will just be GONE by next spring. Big yellow CAUTION sign for this company. [update 4/1999] I previously registered a complaint regarding this company. In all fairness, I need to register a compliment. I had received the wrong colored tulips two years ago. I complained to the company and was told they had issued a caveat regarding a shortage of red emperor tulips. I had no recall of such a warning and grumbled about the wrong color all summer long. Much to my surprise in Sept. of 1998, I found an unsolicited shipment of replacement bulbs on my front porch from Netherland Bulb Company. I planted them last fall and was treated to a wonderful display of gorgeous red emperor tulips this spring. Thanks, Netherland Bulb Company!

I like this company a lot mainly because of their good service. Although I received the wrong colored daffodils, they sent me friendly acknowlegement to my request for a replacement the next fall. They replaced my 25 tulips when I asked them why they did not bloom. (They suggested that I did not refrigerate them, which I didn't) The freesias, crocuses, tulips, and daffodils they sent me were all very healthy and a good size.

I ordered two varieties from them last fall, and they either shipped the wrong bulbs, or they don't look the LEAST bit like their photos or descriptions. I am very disappointed.

I don't like the mediocre quality of bulbs I received from this mediocre company.

Netherlands Bulbs is HORRIBLE! I got suckered by the prices, and ended up with a bunch of seriously diseased tulips - so sick that I can't plant any more in that bed for two years.

Last year, I ordered tulips, daffodils, and crocus from Netherlands Bulb Co. The bulbs came well before the ground froze (very important here in North Dakota) and all the bulbs were large and disease free. After a rather cold winter, although with major snow cover, all the bulbs survived and grew nicely. They even survived a late frost. All the bulbs bloomed well and died back at the normal time for here. Because they did so well this year, I'm assuming they will be back next spring. I plan on ordering more from this company this year because of how happy I was with the quality and prices last year.
