I have talked to Joe Neidhart at Straders Garden Center and they are finally able to give away spring flowering bulbs to community groups. Here are the procedures to get them. They are compiled and only available at the Riverside Drive garden center.You must take your tax ID number with you to show you are a non profit.You just have to get what they are giving away. They have lots! Let them know you are working with the Growing to Green program of the Franklin Park Conservatory and you got the word through Bill Dawson and Joe Neidhart (Straders).Thank them when you pick up (and maybe a follow up letter later or in the spring when they bloom)I know this is a little later than usual, but I do hope you are able to take advantage of the free bulbs. I am sure that we will have an opportunity to get them in the ground before a solid freeze.
