“A glimpse of the past”
Imagine the days of simplicity, the days when gardeners shared their treasures with each other. Heirloom Bulbs are a glimpse of the past with each bulb containing a rich heritage and story. Heirloom bulbs thrive for many generations, often in harsh or abandoned conditions. Heirloom bulbs require very little maintenance. Drought hardy are virtually pest free, even new gardeners find it an impossible task to kill an heirloom bulb. Simply plant your bulbs and let nature do the rest.
As a child, I formed an unlikely friendship with an elderly Rabbi and his wife. I spent hours in their rose gardens. It was truly a magical place, full of imagination, wildlife, beauty and stories. Many of their roses came from original clippings from their family. Roots run deep with gardeners. Rabbi and Mrs Horowitz taught me about the importance of preserving the past, having a passion for flowers, and having gardens with a story.
Heirloom Bulb Girl
Violinist by trade, heirloom bulb hunter by passion, Keenan has spent the last 25 years hopping fences, ripping jeans on barbed wire, wrestling rattlesnakes and racing against bulldozers, all for the sake of a bulb. Now Keenan and her family are sharing the fruits of that labor with you and others interested in passing on a gardening legacy.
Behind every good vision is a man who moves the mulch, digs the deep holes and encourages the dream.

My Three Greatest Accomplishments
Rounding out our true family affair, our kids have been on bulb hunts for as long as they can remember. The kids help with garden talks and plant shows, as well as tending the gardens.
One of the few infallible rules of gardening is that no garden can have too many bulbs. Splurge. It is the only way.
