Last summer I ordered elephant ear and canna bulbs from Longfield Gardens and I couldn't have been happier with what I got. I don't normally order plants online because I've been disappointed in the past with the quality. Not so here -- Longfield Gardens promptly sent out bulbs that were healthy and ready to plant (although I did wait til fall to give them a better chance of surviving). The packaging was perfect -- nothing mashed or broken. I'd recommend ordering from Longfield Gardens if you are considering adding some beautiful plants to your garden that you are having difficulty finding. You'll be really happy with both the plants and the service.
