Fall flower bulb sale

It’s time to start thinking ahead to your fall plantings for next year’s spring flowers. We are offering two different options for ordering your spring flowering bulbs through Dutch Mill Bulbs and FlowerPower Fundraising.

Orders must be placed through either of these links to receive credit so please share these links to our specific fundraiser! Orders are placed directly online at:


Share these links with your family and friends, both local and out of town. Their orders are placed directly online which eliminates you as the middle man for payment and delivery.

This is an individual fundraiser. Every purchase will earn 50% profit for your student’s Charms account.

If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Pakiela.
