Join the Collin County Master Gardeners Association on Saturday, Oct. 5, in the Stall Barn at beautiful Myers Park and Event Center in McKinney from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to learn more about, and purchase, the best selections of bulbs and perennials for North Texas at the 2013 Bulb and Perennial Mart.
The 2013 Annual Bulb and Perennial Mart is a one-day shopping opportunity and an introduction to some of the best, hard to find heirloom bulbs and drought tolerant perennials for Collin County and surrounding areas. CCMGA will be selling some of the fabulous perennials that are doing so well in the nationally award winning trial gardens at Myers Park; and spring, summer, and fall blooming bulbs that are researched and proven to be suitable for our climate and soil extremes.. The Texas tough plants being offered will add a splash of color to the garden throughout the year. Purchase these proven winners by cash, check, or credit card (Visa or Mastercard only).
