The GCH Bulb & Plant Mart began on the steps of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston 82 years ago. Members sold bulbs and plants grown from their own gardens. Today, the Mart offers top-quality bulbs from the best growers around the United States and abroad. Examples of bulbs offered for sale include Amaryllis, Anemones, Crocuses, Daffodils, Freesias, Hyacinths, Irises, Ranunculi, and varieties of Tulips and Watsonias.
Experienced and beginning gardeners alike will find an expanded collection of hard-to-find and unusual Crinums, Daylilies, Gingers, perennials, shrubs, vines, herbs and citrus plants, including exclusive offerings grown specifically for the Mart from the gardens of GCH members. The Plants that Merit Attention booth will be featured on Saturday morning and will offer noteworthy selections collected specifically for the Mart. Additional special exhibits will include the live butterfly tent from The Museum of Natural Science Cockrell Butterfly Center. The GCH Conservation Booth will feature a variety of native and drought tolerant plants curated by experts in ecological conservation and education.
Proceeds from the Bulb and Plant Mart are used for the purposes of stimulating the interest in and knowledge of gardening, enhancing the beauty of our community, and protecting and restoring our fragile ecosystem. Our ongoing projects and the recipients of last year’s Community Contribution Grants can be found on our Community page.
