Bulbs from BGBulbs - Mail Order Bulb and Seed Nursery




Welcome to my web site! 

Border 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.

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.


Some images from the garden........

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 enthusiasts.

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).

You are welcome to e-mail or phone BGB with your enquiry and questions.
