Seeds & Bulbs
Seeds are available year-round at The Bruce Company. The star of our seed lineup is the entire offering from Seed Savers Exchange, the best collection of heirloom seeds in the country. From mouth-watering veggies, to aromatic flowers and herbs, the Seed Savers line is quite astounding in its diversity.
Along with heirloom varieties we also stock the top-selling hybrid seeds from Botanical Interest, Burpee, Livingston and Renee's Garden Seeds.
We carry a broad selection of bulbs and roots for our area. We have bulbs that will bloom in spring, summer, fall and some that can be forced indoors in winter.
Bulb season begins in February when the Caladiums, Begonias, Calla Lilies and Elephant Ears arrive. In March look for Lilies, Dahlias, Cannas, Liatris, Gladiolus, Anemone, Ranunculus, Freesia, and others. In late summer, look for over 40 varieties of Bearded Iris rhizomes ready for planting, but the biggest selection arrives in mid-August. The Bruce Company carries over 100 varieties of Tulips, a splendid variety of Daffodils and Narcissus, as well as Crocus, Hyacinths, Alliums for summer blooms, Colchicum for fall flowers, and many other hardy bulbs. During the winter holidays we have Amaryllis, Hyacinth and Paperwhite Narcissus for forcing blooms indoors.
Most bulbs are easy to grow and can be great learning projects for kids as well as fun gifts for gardeners. Ask our knowledgeable staff how to be successful with your bulb garden, indoors and out.
