Have not received

I wish I could tell you how much I love them, but I have not received them yet, and I honestly hope they will still be alive by the time the courier delivers them, because they've had my plants for a week now

Really nice

I loved it, was packed so carefully but slightly surprised how small it was. It would help if the photos on the website are more realistic

Admin: Thank you for the feedback Suhail. Appreciate the review. The winterbulbs do indeed make them appear smaller overall - see the pic and description in the listing. Growing season is fast approaching and given proper conditions it’ll start pushing tall stalks and large summer traps over the course of the next couple of weeks. Besides them settling in faster into its new environment, an added bonus is that there will be no surprises next winter when they start dying back for their beautysleep. Happy growing
