SAVE THE DATE FOR THE 13th ANNUAL BULB & PERENNIAL MART ON OCTOBER 15, 2016 AT MYERS PARK & EVENT CENTER.
by Dawn Bluemel Oldfield, CCMGA Public Relations Chairperson
Master Gardeners Association is offering heirloom and naturalizing bulbs by pre-order only with an online sale that began August 1. These easy-to-grow bulbs have been researched and are proven to be suitable for our climate and soil. Many of these hard-to-find bulbs will not be available for purchase at local nurseries. Pre-ordered bulbs will be available for pick-up at The Bulb and Perennial Mart on Saturday, October 15th at Myers Park & Event Center in McKinney.
Pre-order bulbs will be available for pick-up at 9 a.m. at the Bulb & Perennial Mart. During the event, CCMGA will be selling a selection of perennials and even more varieties of spring, summer and fall blooming bulbs. The perennials offered at The Mart have been proven to be winners in the international award winning Earth-Kind® Research and Demonstration gardens at Myers Park. These Texas tough plants will add color and beauty to the garden throughout the year!
This fall fundraiser benefits CCMGA community outreach and educational programs in Collin County. Information about The Bulb & Perennial Mart, a color brochure with descriptions of bulbs available for the pre-sale and an order form are available at ccmgatx.org. Visa and MasterCard only accepted for online orders. Please call the Collin County Master Gardeners Association at 972-548-4232 for questions and additional information.
Proceeds from the sale benefit community outreach programs, and horticultural and water conservation education throughout Collin County.
