The Bruce Company, which received gold awards for its flora from Madison Magazine’s Best of Madison readers’ poll in 2009 and 2010, grows a huge variety of plants, trees, and shrubs on about 600 acres of nursery fields. These fields are tended affectionately with conservation practices such as crop rotation, Sudan grass composting, and finger aeration. Greenify your backyard with a large selection of outside plants—blooming shrubs start at $25, for example. Or, brighten your living room with assorted inside plants, from bonsai and cacti to cyclamen and mini-cyclone ($15 and up). Gardening supplies are also available; customers can partition their yards into child-friendly and unfriendly segments with 25 feet of garden hose ($23), deceive sky animals into posing for photos with a birdhouse ($15 and up) or feeder ($30 and up), or surprise a roommate by adding a cubic yard of mulch to his or her closet (around $32/cubic yard). If you’re uncertain about the proper leafiness to add to your life, The Bruce Company's able staff of helpful horticulturalists is on-site to offer suggestions.
