Brent & Becky’s Bulbs
It’s as easy as a click or a phone call.
Spring is in the air and it’s time to start thinking about planting bulbs for summer bloom. There are dozens of beautiful bulbs available to the gardener including dahlias, gladiolus, oriental lilies, Asiatic lilies, caladiums, carmas, crocosmia, zantedeschia (calla lily), or colocasia and alocasia, both commonly called elephant ears, just to name a few. Is there anything prettier than a gorgeous agapanthus growing in a large pot on the patio surrounded by your favorite collection of annuals, or a group of Acidanthera (peacock glad), a delicate looking species gladiolus, bouncing around behind the physostegia and leucanthemtun in a perennial bed? Those are just a few of the bulb offerings at www.BloominBucks.com and they also offer a variety of perennials to compliment the bulbs. 
So remember, if you or your friends are looking for summer blooming bulbs or want to prepare for your next year's spring blooming bulbs, check out Brent & Becky’s - www.BloominBucks.com, and select “Federated Garden Clubs of NY State”, or you may also order by telephone at (877)661-2852. Just remember to mention Federated Garden Clubs of NYS.
