to my web site!
Gateway Bulbs is a 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.
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.
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.
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
Some images from the garden........
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.
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 enthusiasts.
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).
