August 1, 2017 - September 9, 2017 @ Order online at www.ccmga.org/bulbs
Mark your calendars — you don’t want to miss the Collin County Master Gardeners 14th Annual Online Bulb Pre-Sale! Get ready — bulbs may be ordered online at www.ccmga.org/bulbs beginning August 1, 2017 and running through September 9, 2017 for fall planting. This year’s sale features some tried and true favorites plus some outstanding new varieties. The Collin County Master Gardeners have done your homework for you. They’ve selected a variety of spring-blooming bulbs that not only do well in our area, but will naturalize and often come back year after year.
The bulbs for this annual fall fundraiser were selected because their characteristics suit our climate and soil:
The bulbs will thrive and oftentimes multiply in our clay soil
- These bulbs are drought tolerant
- Their flowers are easy-care perennials
- Bulbs do not need to be chilled
- Bulbs are critter-resistant
- Most important – these bulbs are NOT available locally!

What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. In exchange for their training, individuals who become Master Gardeners volunteer their time, working through their cooperative Extension office, to provide horticultural-related information to their communities.
Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn and to help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people.
