Wonderful

I have not grown these plants before but I received some free bulbs with another order from my beloved Longfield Gardens. I planted them in a sun and shady spot and hoped for something to happen. That was in early April and now in mid August, they are crazy in their primordial beauty. I see that they like lots of water and today ,here, we had a huge thunderstorm so Mother Nature provided that for me. Thank you, my friends, at Longfield Gardens

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.
