The 2018 Bulb & Perennial Mart event will be here soon! As gardeners eagerly await autumn and cooler temperatures and landscapes resplendent with colorful mums and pansies, it’s not too early to think about spring. Join the Collin County Master Gardeners Association on Saturday, October 13, 2018 in the Show Barn at Myers Park & Event Center in McKinney, Texas from 9:00AM – 3:00PM (or until sold out), to learn more about, and purchase, the best selections of bulbs, iris and perennials for North Texas.
These Texas-tough plants will add color and beauty to the garden throughout the year. Returning to the Bulb & Perennial Mart this year is a limited selection of Bearded Iris, chosen for their beauty, and “wow factor”. They’re all visually striking, and are dependable and tolerant of most soil types. CCMGA will also be selling a beautiful garden themed 2019 calendar with colorful photographs and timely gardening tips. They will make great holiday gifts for the gardeners on your list!
Additionally, CCMGA will be offering compost and mulch from Texas Pure Products for sale at The Mart. Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about the benefits of these nutrient rich products, and best practices on how and when to apply them to the garden.
