Buy bulbs!

Home » Support us » Buy bulbs!

For those who have not picked up preordered bulbs, please call the Master Gardener office at 875-5338 to arrange a pick up time at our office at 4145 Branch Center Rd.

The office is closed on Fridays, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and occasionally other days. If you get voice mail, please leave a message and someone will call you back.

Bulbs can be picked up till December 15. After that date the bulbs will be donated to the Fair Oaks Horticulture Center. 

Thanks for your support!

Bulb sales have closed for the 2016 season.  We hope to offer bulbs again in fall, 2017!

Bulbs are very drought tolerant.  They are irrigated (usually) by winter rain and most prefer to be dry in the summer.  A perfect combination for our climate.  We are offering 12 varieties of bulbs. 

Prices include sales tax.  We accept cash or checks (sorry, no credit cards). All proceeds from sales of these bulbs help the UCCE Master Gardeners of Sacramento County continue to offer gardening guidance and gardening-related programs and events to the residents of Sacramento County.
