RARE BULB NURSERY. LATVIA
by Dr. Janis Ruksans & Liga Popova

NEW OFFER - 2020 

Payments only after 1st January, 2020 

Sorry, no shipping out of Europe 


Dear friends and garden lovers!

This year my offer comes much earlier than usually. I am not as strong as before, therefore I am forced to reduce the scale of my activities to be able to manage everything in due time and in the usual quality, for which my nursery is so famous. So I’m strongly shortening my collection although there still remains more than 1600 samples of crocuses and around 3.5 thousand samples of another hardy bulbs.

Usually I am repotting all pots every year, but this summer Muscari, most of Scillas, Ornithogalums, Alliums and Colchicums remained untouched for repotting only next summer. Still remain 9000 pots, but significantly were decreased number of ground grown bulbs. Regardless of all health problems, I still continue some travelling, although always after current mountain trip I’m repeating - it was my last, no more to mountains… And my wife Guna start to laugh - so many times she hear those words up to my next trip.

Early finishing of garden works allowed earlier to start preparing of new catalogue. When I made the list of includable plants it turned 650 items long, what of course was impossible for me to manage. So started striping out. What to leave or not to leave – that was the question. Although I decided - not more than 400 items to be offered, finally left 440. So having some special wishes - ask for them and may be your dream will be realised. It is not that easy with colour forms though. Most of the plants grown by me are from seed, so they split in colour and not always I have time to mark the exceptionally beautiful ones although they are pictured and published on Facebook and Forums. The entire blooming time I walk through my collection with a bunch of brushes in my pocket and do almost nothing but pollinate. Of course, occasionally some hybrids occur, because I cannot isolate all the flowers, but such is the fate of all small nurseries that offer only self-grown plants. We never offer plants from the wild – this is our principal rule.

My crocus monograph “The World of Crocuses” is almost sold out. From the 2000 printed copies there are less than 100 left.

My nursery is registered as a small nursery, so I have a very limited allowed total income from my sells to keep this status. So I will stop the acceptance of new orders when the total amount of sells approaches this limit. Last year that moment arrived already in April, so do not delay the ordering until the last minute. I start the despatching of bulbs in June and it is normal that now by the end of July all the orders have been sent out.

Sincerely Yours
