Lily sale at FUSP Saturday

Benfica is one of several varieties of lily
being offered at FUSP on Saturday.

The First Unitarian Society of Plainfield is having a sale of lily bulbs on Saturday, May 23, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

On offer are seven varieties of lily bulbs offering a wide range of colorings and planting options -- from shady spots to pots, and some that are very fragrant.

If you're an aficionado, you'll recognize the names -- Benfica, London Heart, Manissa, Souvenir, Spring Joy, and Venetian. There will also be a "mystery" assortment of Oriental mixed varieties (all fragrant). In addition, there is a limited selection of Amaryllis bulbs.

The bulbs are from Holland and imported by a North Jersey grower. The lily bulbs, which retail from $2.50-$4.00 per bulb are being offered at $1.00 each -- a real bargain. The amaryllis bulbs are being offered at $5.00 each and normally retail at $10-$12 each.

FUSP volunteers Sandy Kaplan and Gayle Jones are in charge. Be sure to say "Hi!" to them and tell them you learned of the sale through Plainfield Today.

FUSP is at 724 Park Avenue, just off Seventh Street. Parking on the street and in the city lot across from the church.
