The daffodil bulbs were donated by Dr. John Reed of Oakwood Daffodils of Niles, MI and the Greater St.Louis Daffodil Society. Sponsors and support came from the Gasconade County Master Gardeners, the Greater St. Louis Daffodil Society, and Gerald’s Boy Scout troop.
In total, nine energetic volunteers planted the bulbs on a bright and sunny day, which made for a pleasant event.
The Greater St. Louis Daffodil Society’s by-laws require community outreach, and this project provided a perfect opportunity. The Gasconade Master Gardeners, also have a yearly requirement for community outreach; those attending were able to earn some quality service hours for their effort.
Be sure to visit the site this spring, to see all of the color, and each spring thereafter.
