I received my bulbs shortly after ordering. I couldn't plant them for a few days, but they stayed healthy after I removed them from packaging and stored them in a cool dry place. There were a few more bulbs than the order stated and many of the bulbs had several "heads". None of them were dried out and they all seemed healthy.
I plant tulips, crocus, muscari, and daffodils as naturalizers all over my vast property. I order the majority of my bulbs from Holland Bulbs and always have great luck in the spring.
