are at californianativebulbs.com
Web home of Far West Bulb Farm, and thank you for visiting.
Thank you for your understanding.
Please note: We sell bulbs
ONLY by mail order and ONLY when they are dormant, usually between September
to October each year. This is a parttime
project for us; we have other fulltime jobs . . .
Please see the bottom of the page for answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs).
HOW THIS SITE WORKS:
LIST button downloads during the
selling season only the Order
Form, Conditions of Sale,
and Growing Instructions to your computer (outside the season,
only the Growing Instructions are available). Print these, show your
choices on the order form and send in with your payment (we don't take
credit cards). You can't download the order form outside of the selling
Click the HOW TO button to find out how we grow our bulbs (last updated Sept. 2003). Use this information any way you wish; we want to encourage people to grow and spread these wonderful bulbs as widely as possible. The last part is a brief list of useful references; we especially draw to your attention the beautifully illustrated book Wild Lilies, Irises and Grasses: Gardening with California Monocots edited by Nora Harlow, Kristin Jakob (University of California Press) which covers detailed growing conditions for all the bulbs we sell. Also, if you find out something new, or have a better way of doing things, please tell us, and we'll pass it on! This section also lists resources that aren't on the web. And Nancy, a landscape designer with 30 years experience, has written a short article on gardening with native bulbs. Click here to see it.
The PHOTO GALLERY button guides you on a tour of some native bulb flowers. Be aware that the pictures file sizes are larger than in our on-line catalog, and will take longer to download. We hope you'll enjoy them as you have the time.
The LINKS button takes you to other interesting web sites which we think you'll find useful, including sites that show average precipitation maps for California and Oregon. Please tell us if there are other sites to which you think we should link.
The ABOUT US button takes you to a page with more information about us, and how best to contact us by mail, phone or e-mail.

Note: we realize that our e-mail reminder scheme is not working for everyone. If you do not put our e-mail address on your whitelist and in your address book, our reminders may be treated as spam. Moreover, when we sent out e-mails last year, our provider refused messages in large groups, claiming they were spam! We had to send in much smaller groups, and this may not have worked for everyone. We apologize if you were relying on these reminders, and invite suggestions from knowledgeable readers.
