I wasn't expecting these bulbs to ship until the fall and was quite concerned when they arrived in early July. Before opening the package, I assumed the bulbs would be in very poor condition....I Was WRONG! All of the bulbs came in immaculate condition! They were healthy, no sign of any rot, and most were already sprouted (but not so much so that they were anemic and died in the sunlight). I am absolutely thrilled with the bulbs I've received from Tulipworld! I planted them right away and they are out of the soil and look incredibly healthy. Looking forward to seeing them bloom!
