Bees, Bugs, Bulbs

Farm Open Day!  Enjoy a beautiful fall day on the lily farm and in Momma’s garden Pre-registration and RSVP required. (Please send email to bulbmen@gmail.com)

We’ll have a theme this time and guest lecturers!  It’s all about bees and bugs — things that pollinate plants.

We’ll also have crinum bulbs, jonquils and seeds to plant in fall which attract pollinators.  There’ll be insect themed pottery, bug books and other great early Christmas shopping!

Also, an artist friend who has an amazing, creative garden will open her place for afternoon tours.  Details and directions will be sent when you pre-register.
