Discover Our One-Stop Bulb Shop

Come explore our rainbow of bulbs for fall planting, including crocuses, daffodils, irises, tulips, fritillaria, hyacinths, and more. They couldn't be easier to plant — just pop them in the ground now for a springtime show.

Take Advantage of Fall Planting Weather

Cool fall rains are perfect for helping plants get established, so take advantage of the weather to add more perennials, shrubs, and trees to your home landscape — including climate-adapted PNW natives! In mid-September, our Native Section will be getting a refresh with a large shipment of PNW natives to beautify your garden while creating habitat for local wildlife.
