Welcome to BGBulbs
Border Gateway Bulbs is
a small mail order nursery that specializes in the more uncommon bulbs from
around the world. Bulbs can be purchased from the web site and you
are welcome to have a look at the images of bulbs grown in my garden.
Bulbous plants come in
many shapes and sizes, and here you will see some of them growing in my
garden with it's mainly, Mediterranean-type climate. My garden is situated
in Wodonga, where I live, and also a number of the Winter growing
collection are grown on a property in Yackandandah.
On this site you will
be able to see how I grow the bulbs in my garden, and find out about
cultivation, raising seeds, watering, pests & diseases, and some
history about the bulbs we love to grow and enjoy.
Many species that are
grown in the garden are started from seed, collected and bought, from
fellow gardeners all around the world. It is this exchange of plant
material, and friendships, that makes the world of gardening with bulbs so
enjoyable and rewarding.

One of the main aims of
the garden is to conserve our natural flora by collecting and growing bulbs
from seed, and sharing them amongst gardeners throughout the world.
Be sure to check out
the bulb and seed pages to see what bulbs and seed are currently available
from the garden. Also a series of lists are being put together, to detail
all genera and species held in the bulb collection. This effort will take
some time, but once the lists are up on the web site they will act as a
reference for bulbs in the collection, which will help further disseminate
material amongst collectors, botanic gardens and similar like-minded
Please enjoy your stay
and I hope you will find something of interest (and maybe try growing some
bulbs from seed! You'll find them very easy and rewarding).
