When people are lifting and dividing their lilies in fall, they may wish to donate a few bulbs to our bulb sale. Donations of bulbs are gratefully accepted, and as you probably know, profits from our sale go towards funding scholarships in horticulture at University of Saskatchewan and Olds College (Alberta), as well as enabling us to carry on with our various events.
If you wish to donate bulbs to our bulb sale, please keep a few things in mind:
- Ensure that the bulbs are clean, disease-free and of saleable size.
- If you can supply the names of the lilies, or the colour that’s great, but if not, that’s okay, as they will then be sold as Mixed Garden Lilies.
- We’d like to have donations in by September 22 to allow us time for packaging
For past bulb sales, people have donated varying numbers of bulbs, with donations ranging from a bulb or two to several hundred bulbs, and each donation is very much appreciated!
If you live outside of the Saskatoon area and wish to donate bulbs, CPLS will gladly reimburse you for postage costs, so long as we are notified in advance that you wish to do this.
Please contact Barb if you have bulbs to donate, either for the sale, or for replacements for our plot. Thanks!
