Fall Bulb Planting--favorite supplier?

I'm looking to put in a few hundred tulip bulbs this Fall and would like to use an on-line specialty supplier instead of the local Menards as I've found their bulbs quite nasty and dried out.

Might anyone have a favorite supplier for bulbs?

WallyWorld has bulbs out right now.

I got 60 Crocus bulbs for $8 yesterday.

Tulip bags were for 30, IIRC. The assortment was on a self standing island about the size
of your average palette of misc stuff - 4ft tall.

I only got one bag, since the possibility exists they will never be planted!

I like tulips, but it doesn't get cold enough in So Cal to get the chill they need. I would have to dig them up and refrigerate them and I am too lazy for that. Daffodils and Iris are the way to go for me, They come up year after year.

I have just bought on ebay and they were not that good.

Michigan Bulb & Seed has always been one of my favorites.

vanengelen.com has top notch selection and prices FAR lower than the typical mail order places. they're a favorite of landscape architects.

Great catalog to browse, even if you don't buy. They have been in business for a very long time and have a great reputation.
