Craft/Plant Sale

It was decided we will be having a craft and plant sale the day of our Garden Walk (Sept 22nd).
We will also be raffling off a wagon filled with garden items.  However, we need your help!

For the wagon, we still need items.  Some suggestions are:
Plant identifying stakes
Small bag of bird food
Decorative lights (small lights on strings or to place in beds/lawns)
Small garden flag (s)
Gardening gloves
Gardening Hat
Sheppard's hooks
Fall Decorations
Gift cards from Home Depot, Lowes, Maas Nursery, or anything garden related
New Pots

Contact Kris Murphy at 281-723-0911

We also need plants and crafts for the sale.  The focus will be on the more unusual plants and crafts.  Plants that are not easily acquired are preferred; not the common plants such as spider or asparagus ferns.  Holiday or sports themed crafts sell well.  Contact Judy Anderson or Judith Taub if you have plants or crafts to donate.

New daffodil promotion

National Garden Clubs (NGC) has selected a new daffodil cultivar.

It has been registered with the Royal Horticultural Society as N. ‘Plant America’.  Brent and Becky’s Bulbs will donate a percentage of the sales to the PLANT AMERICA Community Project Grants Fund.

This bulb will be available for purchase exclusively by NGC members for three years before it goes on sale to the public.  There is a LIMITED amount of stock available for purchase this fall, as is typical in the first year of a new cultivar.  For the second and third years, the number of bulbs available will be much larger.

N. ‘Plant America’ can be ordered starting today by phone or email from Brent and Becky’s Bulbs using the order form that is available on their website.
Quantities are limited.
