GARDEN FUNDRAISER: 4th Annual Flower Bulb Sale

September 1 - September 15

September 1—15

Order ONLINE between September 1-15 at and PICK UP in person at the Museum mid-October. Pickup instructions will be emailed to all bulb purchasers closer to pickup date.

It’s time to plant spring flowering bulbs! We work with CT based Van Engelen/John Scheepers Bulb Companies to bring you the freshest bulbs of the best quality from Holland. Heirloom varieties like ‘Tulipa sylvestris’ (grown in Thomas Jefferson’s gardens) and a native allium ‘Graceful Beauty’ round out an extensive list of special offerings. Be sure to reserve your favorites early as quantities are limited!

On September 1, visit to see photos of all varieties and complete descriptions with planting and care information. Your purchase helps us to continue maintaining the historic gardens at the Museum.

NOTE: Bulbs must be picked up at the Museum; bulbs cannot be shipped. Items may sell out — you will be notified if so to make another selection.

Contact for planting and care questions.

Be A Garden Angel!

If you don’t have a place for bulbs, consider becoming a Garden Angel. For a Museum donation of $25, we will add bulbs to our gardens for posterity.

Thank you for your support in helping make Miss Florence’s Gardens grow!
