Easy to Grow Bulbs is a family owned and operated business dedicated to working directly with growers around the country and throughout the world to bring their biggest and best quality bulbs and plants to your home and garden. It all began at a small warehouse located in Oceanside, California circa 2004. It has grown into an online store offering product to home gardeners and wholesale customers.
We search the world for the best. Premium quality and plants are sourced from Holland, Israel, South Africa, as well as domestically (we grow some really good stuff in the United States of America!). Some of the bulbs are well known to all gardeners, some are vastly under-utilized - and some are really weird (we like that!). We work hard to bring the unusual to our customers.Easy to Grow Bulbs is a family owned and operated business dedicated to working directly with growers around the country and throughout the world to bring their biggest and best quality bulbs and plants to your home and garden.

MEET OUR TEAM
Jim Threadgill is the President of Easy to Grow Bulbs and started the family owned and operated company from scratch almost 20 years ago! He determined there was potential for offering larger and better bulbs to the home gardener. Jim continues to work directly with growers - both the massive and the small specialty alike. Many a Saturday has seen Jim racing the sunrise to go out and pitch in with the harvest! When customer ask for a new or odd-ball item, Jim calls upon his network to find a way to meet the need. His extensive background in horticulture is based upon his own deep passion for gardening. Jim feels very fortunate to have such and incredible and dedicated team working with him. Between running the family business, spending time with his family in sunny San Diego, and sneaking away on fishing trips - life is good!
Maggie Threadgill works part-time helping out in customer service and new product development. Her perfect day is spent in her own garden, tending to all the beautiful plants and flower bulbs that Easy to Grow Bulbs sells! Maggie enjoys entertaining (living by the beach there seems to be a lot of company) decorating with succulents and cut flowers being on the most fun element of getting ready to entertain.
Dena inherited her green thumb and passion for gardening from her mother and grandmother. She shares her vast experience along with her huge hearth and quirky personality with our customers by phone and email. No question too big or small for Dena - she handles them all with style! Dena makes sure we get more than our USDA recommended daily dose of laughter. She is a jewel!
Christina came aboard Easy to Grow Bulbs in 2006 to manage our accounts. We soon realized she is an organizational savant! She has set up our inventory control, developed our gift production line, tracks imports, manages our accounting and in general keeps our operations running smoothly.
Elizabeth Threadgill is our Social Media Manager and token millennial. After a recent decorating epiphany made her realize how much money she could save growing her own flowers instead of buying them already cut, she has a newfound interest in gardening. She came to Easy to Grow Bulbs with a not-so green thumb that is getting greener by the week. She has never met a succulent she didn't like. When not obsessively taking photos of flowers and thinking in #hastagss she is outside soaking up the San Diego vibes, drinking alarming amounts of coffee, or planning her next international adventure. Follow us on Instagram to see what she and our flowers are up to!
Kathleen placed an order online with Easy to Grow Bulbs in 2004. She was so impressed with the quality of product and customer service, she soon talked her way into working here! She promptly started pushing for new bulbs and plants to be added to our line (coincidentally those she wanted for her own garden) and she hasn't stopped! Kathleen now manages our marketing and online content.
Lizbeth joined the Easy to Grow Bulbs team in 2008 and has become in integral part of our success. Hundreds of thousands of bulbs from growers around the globe come in, to be sorted, labeled, cared for, carefully packed, and shipped to fill your order and thousands more. Lizbeth started at the ground level unloading trucks, and has worked her way up to manage our entire shipping team. We are so lucky to have her!
