Brecks Bulbs ships direct from Holland and is one of the Gardens Alive family of companies (Spring Hill, etc). They have a good variety of bulb plants, and some other perennials, all at very good prices. Be warned though, most of the "blue" plants this company sells actually are lavendar.

|I have recieved plants from several mail-order companies, and Breck's is by far the best. The quality of their plants is phenomenal. Last year I ordered 3 'super sacks' of bulbs and out of 250 bulbs, only 3 were bad. Their shipping can be a bit slow, and they often push back the delivery date without telling you (but I dont know of any company that doesn't do that). For me, its a fair trade-off...I'm willing to wait a bit longer because I know my purchase will be top quality. Their customer service people are pleasant and relatively helpful; they were able to tell me what my 'new ship date' was upon inquiry, and I wasn't on hold for very long. While they do have some minor pitfalls in the customer communications relam, overall I am very pleased with my dealings with them. I would certainly reccommend Breck's to a friend if any of my friends were gardeners :P|
