My favorite catalog is the Lily Garden. They're pricey, but they have and enormous variety of varieties, and if I buy just one bulb, a few years later I can divide them and have a bunch. Never had any not do well.
I'm going check out Van Engelen for bulk bulbs.

I used to buy from Breck's but the last few years I switched to Van Engelen and John Scheepers. They're the same company, but Van Engelen is for buying in bulk and John Scheepers in smaller quantities. I love the selection, bulbs are big and healthy, and the price is right.

I have had really great luck with the bulbs from Brecks. They are always healthy and multiply every year. I love daffodils, and the ones that I planted when we moved in 7 years ago are still going strong. The bulbs that I have bought from them always look healthy when they arrive- no mold, dust, etc. Good luck!
I am currently enjoying my tulips and grape hyacinths and looking ahead to fall when I would like to order more bulbs. The bulbs I have now have lasted many years but are starting to slow down and it's time to do some replacement. I bought them from different mail-order companies but can't remember which came from where.
Looking online at various options I have found very few with a positive customer approval rating, and those do not carry what I'd like to buy. What are your experiences with mail ordering bulbs (and I do mean BULBS, not plants) from different companies? Any you'd swear by?
The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
