Chicago Botanic GardenOK, so it’s not even autumn but some Road Trips Gardeners are thinking spring — spring flowering bulbs, that is.

There’s a Fall Bulb Festival October 5, 6 and 7, 2018, at the Chicago Botanic Garden, 1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe, Illinois.

More than 250 varieties of daffodils, tulips, crocus, and specialty bulbs will tempt gardeners at the annual bulb sale, including mums, asters, peonies, potted amaryllis, and paperwhite narcissus. Expert staff will be on hand to answer questions and offer tips.

All proceeds benefit the Chicago Botanic Garden. The sale is presented by the Woman’s Board of the Chicago Horticultural Society. In addition to bulbs, there’ll be live music; a harvest market; cider, wine, and beer to purchase; and the “”amazing gourd mountain” for selfies.

Many local vendors will offer baked goods, honey, kettle corn, roasted nuts, fresh jams, and more.
