CONCORD, N.H. — Didn’t see that favorite flower come up this spring? Did the wacky weather kill off some of your most prized flower bulbs? Consider purchasing spring blooming bulbs from our annual fall fundraiser! This year we’re offering an assortment of daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, iris, alliums, and specialty bulbs. All bulbs have a hardiness zone of at least zone 5, to ensure that they will survive our New England winters.
Orders will be taken through September 9h. People will be able to pick up their orders at the MCCD office (10 Ferry Street, Suite 211, Concord) on Friday, 10/4 from 3-6 pm and at the Contoocook Farmers’ Market on Saturday, 10/5 from 9 am – Noon, just in time to get those bulbs planted before the first severe frost. Proceeds go to our scholarship, education, and local foods programming. You can download an order form, color guide, and bulb description guide on our website at www.merrimackccd.org or contact the office at 603-223-6020/ info@
