Chester Townscape volunteers will be in front of the Fullerton Inn on Main Street in Chester selling spring-flowering bulbs during Chester’s Fall Festival from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday Sept. 21 and 22.

All bulbs are top quality, hardy, easy care, deer resistant, and expected to return year after year when grown in full or part sun and in well-drained locations, and prices range from $5 to $10.

Varieties include early and mid bloomers with a variety of colors and heights, from taller alliums to mid-sized daffodils to short snow crocus.

Also available will be Chester Townscape‘s popular, handmade walking sticks, as well as dried floral arrangements created by CT gardeners. All sales help support Chester Townscape’s seasonal floral displays that will be changed later this fall to display pumpkins, flowering kale, and corn stalks at public locations around town.
