Get More with Easy to Grow Bulbs!
Why settle for middle of the road? Get more! All flower bulb/plant supplier aren't created equal. Savvy gardeners have discovered that they can enjoy better quality and value, more complete service and overall superior results by choosing Easy to Grow Bulbs. Here's why.
BIGGER Flower Bulbs
It's simple and intuitive: bigger bulbs produce more flowers. Oversized bulbs settle in better and produce more flower stems. Always look for information about the size of the bulbs you're buying to get the most for your money. Offering smaller bulbs is the primary way unscrupulous flower bulb sellers skimp to reduce their costs - at your expense!
And for potted plants, check to see if you're getting a 3.5" pot (them) or one that's 5.5" (us). Bigger is better.
Value is a combination of quality and price. We encourage you to check the competition to see what size they are offering, at what price. No size info? Draw your own conclusions.

Buy 3 or more packages of the same variety and enjoy automatic discounts of 10-20%. Orders that include multiples are faster for us to pack (and yes, we like to encourage larger orders) so we pass along the savings.
We all love free goodies and when you place an order for products totally $50 or more, we'll add a complimentary package of bulbs for you to enjoy. Chosen for success in your part of the country, these are fun, free and fabulous. And they're always the same size we usually send, not some weird little leftovers.
Customer Service from a Real U.S.-Based Person
Have a question? Need guidance in making a selection? Call us. During regular business hours (PST) the phone will be answered by a real person who is happy to help. This person sits in a California office; most of the time you'll speak with our head customer service person, Kathleen. If we miss you, leave us a message and we'll return your call. If there's a preferred time to return your call, such as mornings between 9-11:00 EST, just let us know.
Nobody likes to wait. We understand that after placing your order, fast receipt is appreciated. Most order ship in 1-2 business days. CA customers sometimes get their boxes the next day! (Note that early season spring orders are sent when weather is appropriately warm in your part of the country.)
Open your shipment from us with confidence, knowing that there won't be dirt tossed all over and bulbs rolling willy nilly in the bottom of the carton. We line our boxes with a sheet of newsprint (recycled from our local weekly newspaper printer), roll protective paper around potted plants and bag bulbs in reusable plastic mesh bags.
Fragrance and Beauty
Why settle for beautiful flowers when you can have all that and fragrance, too? Whenever possible we choose cultivars that are scented, either lightly or lushly, so that you can enjoy both sensory delights. In the last 15-20 years many rose, peony and other flower breeders have ignored fragrance in favor of flashy looks. Given that, it's a good idea to make sure any traditionally scented flowers that you're considering buying really are fragrant. Check product pages for that information; it's provided where applicable.
