Rated 5 out of 5 by from How about five stars? Last year I planted 3 bulbs, one came up, wilted and died. This year, however, I have five growing... yay!! I find if you have patience wonderful things happen. Or, as my sister says, "The harvest is hers in due season." All my flowering bulbs, trees and shrubs didn't flower until the second year. Don't give up:)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't grow! I planted these bulbs in late April/early May along with about 10 bulbs from other lilllies, cannas, etc. All of the bulbs grew except these!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No growth I planted exactly as indicated but nothing grew or sprouted. I was disappointed as they would have been beautiful if they grew.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed These look so pretty in the picture but mine never bloomed either. I planted them in my garden and nothing ever happened.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rotted bulbs I ordered 12 tuberose bulbs several months ago. WHen they finlly arrived only 9 were plantable as 3 had rotted in the package. I planted the remaining 9 bulbs in fresh soil, new pots and waited. It is now the first of Aug and there are NO growth signs. So I dug in the pots and found that the bulbs were all shriveled and mushy. Only 1 bulb has produced green. ONE! I will never buy bulbs from this company again. It was a waste of my time and money.
