Great Lakes Bulb Society

We are a group of enthusiasts for growing bulbs in the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley area of North America. Our group is organized in a very loose way.

"Bulbs" includes all geophytes (plants growing from bulbs, tubers, corms, or rhizomes.) We are interested in and grow either hardy bulbs (growing in the ground all year round) or tender bulbs.

If you share these interests and you live in the general geographic area of concern, you can contact us at for more information on joining our group. We welcome new members and we invite you to join us.



2001 Annual Meeting

Our next meeting will be on Saturday, May 4, 2001. It will be held in conjunction with the meeting of the International Bulb Society at the Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe, Illinois. E-mail Jim Shields for more information.
