I tried, I really tried to resist all the catalogs and on line offerings!
I lost the battle and succumbed to their teasing!
This time I ordered from John Scheepers
I was not pleased with the big box store's tulips. So I went back to ordering.
All of the ones I ordered are a Triumph Tulip- which is a cross between a Darwin and an Early Tulip. I stayed with the same type of bulb so they would bloom at the same time and have a similar size.
Of course I had to order some daffodils/narcissus
Now I'm anxious to get these and plant them! I'm going to put them out near the new area by my driveway. I get a good view of the area from my house and they get plenty of sun.
I did mention another bulb company that I had ordered from in the past on the post from last April, but I kind of got ticked at them because of some plants I ordered that came in looking dead/damaged and severely delayed due to a shipping error on their part. I sent them a picture and complained but they seemed uninterested in helping me. They were more than glad to site their standard wording about how some plants are shipped dormant and may take 6 weeks to look better. Well the one that looked dead was and the other made it but it was an annual and by the time I got it it was already July. Then mysteriously another shipment came but it was August by then and that was so late I couldn't believe they bothered. I guess there is always a risk when ordering but they're communication stunk. Customer service can make you or break you!
Can't wait to see these blooming next spring!
