Does anyone have any experience with this vendor? They have some bulbs that I'm interested in and the prices seem reasonable, but I'm just a bit chary about bulb vendors in general, having had some less than wonderful experiences with mail order bulbs.

Ive never used Wooden Shoe, but I have used Michigan Bulbs...

http://www.michiganbulb.com/

as a matter of fact, just this morning I ordered the Ebb Tide Rose that's shown on the websites main page. ive probably ordered 4-5 times from them in the last 6 months. always quick delivery and quality bulbs/plants.

That's funny. I've ordered a few things from Michigan Bulb, peonies and some lilacs, and the plants were fine. But I've had dreadful service from them when it comes to bulbs. They never ship them in time to plant here. And refuse to send them out any earlier.

Several years ago I ordered a bunch of lilies from them for a co op. Everything looked really good and was true to name, but they seem to be a lot different now. Back then they were wholesale only and sold in bulk, now they're doing retail quantities. Not sure if the company is under new management, so not sure they're offering the same quality and service I remember.

They certainly have expanded in a bunch of different directions! But I like that they're close by in Oregon.
