Last fall, I wrote about the eye-popping presentation Latvian bulb expert Janis Ruksans gave to our local Adirondack Chapter of the North American Rock Garden Society. I haven’t yet read his Timber Press book, Buried Treasures. But it’s the next up on the nightstand.

Today, I received Ruksans bulb catalog via email, and am posting it here online in hopes that some of you will find some buried treasures of your own within.

Warning:

  • This is not a glossy catalog full of great pictures. It’s all text.
  • These bulbs aren’t cheap. The prices are in Euros. So add 50 percent (and rising).
  • You need to do some homework. I know a lot of the bulbs Janis offers are not hardy here in Zone 5. Your mileage may vary.

I do know you’ll find bulbs in this catalog that you won’t find anywhere else.

Our rock garden society chapter is probably going to put in a group order to reduce shipping, handling, etc. Look for details on our new blog.

  1. I thought you might be interested to see that Gardens North has a “Janis Ruksans” category alongside “Annuals,” “Perennials,” “Cactus Pads,” etc.

    Their offerings may not be as complete as the catalog you have been looking at, but you may be able to find a few things there that will cut down on your European order and shipment costs:
