The Collin County Master Gardeners Association is pleased to announce their 10th Annual Exclusive Bulb Sale. The fundraiser has a new twist this year. Tried and true heirloom and naturalizing bulbs will be available by pre-order only from August 1-31, with the event to be concluded with a Bulb and Perennial Mart on Saturday, Oct. 5 at Myers Park and Event Center in McKinney. The fundraiser benefits CCMGA community outreach and educational programs in Collin County.
CCMGA will be selling a selection of perennials, and more spring, summer, and fall blooming bulbs at the Bulb and Perennial Mart. The perennials offered at the sale have been proven to be winners in the research and demonstration gardens at Myers Park. These Texas tough plants will add a splash of color to the garden throughout the year. The bulbs are researched and proven to be suitable for our climate and soil extremes. These lovely bloomers are perennial, do not require pre-chilling, are drought tolerant, and are excellent choices for water-wise gardens. Many of these hard to find bulbs are not available for purchase at local nurseries.
Information about the Bulb and Perennial Mart, and a color brochure with descriptions of bulbs available for the pre-sale and an order form are available for downloading at the CCMGA website: ccmgatx.org.
Mailed orders must be accompanied by a check or money order payable to CCMGA and must be received by August 31. Visa and Mastercard accepted for online orders only.
Please call the Collin County Master Gardeners Association at 1-972-548-4219 or 1-972-548-4232 for questions, additional information, and presentation schedule.
