MICHIGAN BULB FIRM CLOSES

Michigan Bulb Co., one of the nation's best-known gardening mail-order firms, closed Friday, putting 225 employees out of work.

The shutdown ended months of speculation as, one by one, board members and key executives quit the company, which is owned by Foster & Gallagher.

The company was the subject of adverse publicity surrounding its sweepstakes used to promote the company's garden catalogs.
