Has anyone any experience of Parkers bulb company ? I have an issue with them concerning a delivery of bulbs and have written to them twice . I have not had a reply yet and wondered if anyone else has had a problem .

    If you mean J Parkers not had any issues brought for a few years now always order early and they come in the right time towards end of September always good quality and flower and they have flowered always the next year crocus , daffs, etc.  Been to the garden centre in flixton always well stocked excellent service

  • I've bought primroses and bulbs from them several times over the last few years without having any problems.

    I had some  not up to scratch bulbs, about 8 in 200. I emailed them and had a replacement within a week.  Try emailing customer services, quoting your order number.

    I have read many uncomplimentary comments about this firm - but I have bought bulbs from them for many years and have had excellent results every time. I am just about to plant seventy of their species tulip. They were delivered in excellent condition, on the date indicated and all look to be firm and of a good size.  I have never had a problem with them ...

    I have had some very mixed results with Parkers The first thing I bought from them was three bare rooted Cornus Alba Sibirica  which did very well. Some plug plants were not so good.  I am now looking at all the other suppliers so I can pounce on them in the spring.

    Thanks for all the replies . Parkers have now answered me but obviously didn't read my email . they just say that the bulbs were delivered and received correctly . I know that !   -  I'm trying to tell them that the bulbs were not in good condition when they arrived .

    Have just had email to say they will send replacements , so hopefully they will be in good condition. Thanks for input guys
