All of these Daffodill bulbs arrived in excellent condition. I couldn't plant them right away, so I kept them cool in my garage until I could. They went in the ground in January, late for zone 7, I know, however they've all come up & have bloomed. They are blooming a few weeks behind all the others in the neighborhood, but so what? I always get quality bulbs from Holland Farms so I don't shop anywhere else. I have some I purchased & planted 3 years ago & they're still going strong.
