I am getting ready to place an order for Amaryllis bulbs now and saw two sites: Van Engelen and Scheepers Bulbs. Are these one and the same company?

I have also been thinking of their collections. From what I understand they give you one of each listed but don't send them labeled. Has anyone gotten their bulbs that way and are they accurate?

I have ordered from van Engelen and they usually sell in groups of 3. All 3 bulbs of the one variety came in a single labled bag (I ordered 4 or 5 different hybrids so got 4-5 bags with 3 bulbs in each bag). I only got 1 mislabled bulb, was supposed to be Vera and was a lovely Minerva. Otherwise, the quality was good. I'm sure others will chime in with their experiences.

I ordered a collection of doubles last year and the bulbs were not individually identified, however, when they bloomed I had one of each that they said would be in the collection. Going from memory I think I had; jewel, red peacock, dancing queen, elvas and double record. Awesome bulbs! Amazingly they opened somewhat in succession and it was like watching fireworks with the all ooohhhs and aaahhhs included!
