The 11th Annual Bulb and Perennial Mart Begins August 1st
Mark your calendars. The pre-sale for bulbs for the 11th Annual Bulb and Perennial Mart is right around the corner! The Collin County Master Gardener Association will be offering heirloom and naturalizing bulbs by pre-order only from August 1-31. 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 18th at Myers Park and Event Center in McKinney, Texas.
The Bulb and Perennial Mart will begin with an “Early Bird” seminar at 8:30AM, with pre-order bulbs available for pick-up at 9:00AM. During the event CCMGA will be selling a selection of perennials and more varieties of spring, summer, and fall blooming bulbs during the event. The perennials offered at the sale have been proven to be winners in the International Award winning 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 and Perennial Mart, a color brochure with descriptions of bulbs available for the pre-sale and an order form will be available August 1, 2014 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, 2014. 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 and additional information.
