A colorful and wide assortment of seeds can be found in the hallway of the shop. Seeds for herbs, vegetables, annuals and perennials can always be found during their appropriate planting season; many varieties are untreated or organic. Grab a free planting guide while you’re here or print one out ahead of time from our ’Resources’ page. In addition to the large selection of garden seeds, we also carry several varieties of native Texas wildflower seeds and turf varieties that are locally and seasonally appropriate.
Barton Springs Nursery carries bulbs on a seasonal basis, so be sure to stop in during the fall to get your bulbs planted for spring color. We carry a wonderful selection of fall bulbs including species tulips, various narcissus, oxblood lilies, lycoris, bearded and dutch iris, muscari, leucojum, and more. Many of these bulbs will naturalize in the Austin area and are deer resistant. Don’t forget about amaryllis and paperwhites for forcing indoors during the holiday season. Spring is the season to purchase caladium and elephant ear bulbs.
