About a third of the bulbs had mould on and some were rotted due to being shipped in a plastic bag. I had enough to fill my container but felt a lot had been wasted. Hopefully the ones which survived will make it through the soil. I've bought these before from another supplier where they were shipped in a string bag within a box and they travelled well. Very tasty too.
