New Project for Cass County Master Gardeners in Bulb Sales

Master Gardener Logo

Bulbs bring spring color!  The Cass County Master Gardeners have taken on a new project this fall, with a bulb sale featuring tulip and narcissus bulb mixtures.  This sale is now open to the public for pre-order, with delivery by early October, in plenty of time for fall planting.  Order forms are available at the Cass County Extension office, or can be printed using the link below.
 
The bulbs will be freshly dug from the gardens of Van Engelen, Inc., in Connecticut, and shipped in bulk to the Cass County Master Gardeners.  The Master Gardeners have ordered 500 bulbs, which they hope to pre-sell by the end of September.  The bulbs will be available for pickup at the plant sale on October 10, and will be packaged five bulbs to a bag, and each bag of tulip mixture or narcissus mixture will sell for only $5. Pre-payment is requested at the time of order to guarantee your bulbs. 
 
NOTE: As of 9/25/2020 Giant Darwin Hybrid Tulip Mixture bulbs are SOLD OUT. We still have quite a few narcissus (daffodil) bulb bags available for preorder. The Fragrant Narcissus Mixture features daffodils in colors from white to golden yellow, including:  Double Narcissi Bridal Crown, Cheerfulness and Yellow Cheerfulness; Tazetta Narcissi Geranium and Golden Dawn; Triandrus Narcissi Starlight Sensation, Sunlight Sensation and Thalia; Poeticus Narcissus Pheasant’s Eye; and Jonquilla Narcissi Pipit and Pueblo, ranging in height from 14 to 20 inches. Each bag of 5 will feature a random selection from the colors listed above.
 
Fall Plant Sale Set for October 10
Cass County Master Gardeners will also be holding their second annual Fall Plant Sale on Saturday, October 10, from 8 to 10 am or until sold out. Any remaining bags of bulbs will be available for puchase, if they are not already sold out, at this event.  Master Gardeners will bring bulbs and plants from their own gardens for this sale.  Donations of divided plants are welcome if you would like to donate perennials or bulbs from your garden. Please call in advance and make arrangements to drop off donated plants before the date of the plant sale!
