Has your school or organization sold bulbs or plants for a school fundraiser? How did it go? I see Tesselaars offers 45% on each bulb sold for the seller.
I would much rather buy plants than candy or pizzas.
Usually around here it's either those Domino Pizza booklets or stupid magazines. Only one time and that was waaay back when my youngest g-son was in grammer school, they sold bulbs. I undestand they did well, but not sure what the return was for the school. They never did it again anyway.
Well, way back when, I got cuttings of plants from all my cub scout mothers. I started them all and transported them to the cub scout yearly fund raiser.
I sold out in less than 1 hr. and I had over 100 little plants. They were priced at 50 cents & 1 dollar each! Some were house plants, some perennials and some veggie starts.
So judging from that experience...that was a LOT more popular than candy bars, over priced gift wrap or magazines.

I so wish we would see schools use plants as a fundraiser than candy bars and pizza. I don't have kids in school but would gladly buy plants rather than junk food.
I hate those fundraisers. I do not need pizza of candybars. I would much rather buy plants or bulbs. Try it. You may be surprised. Are you in a rural area. I think it would do etter if you were not living in the city.
my grandaughter sold Mums last fall as a school fundraiser. The were gorgeous! They did very well. I could not tell you the $ amt. but could find out, my daughter in law is head of PTO.

Our grade school is extremely lucky to have a local nursery deeply discount their spring flowers for the school to sell right before Mother's Day. Usually 6packs of pansies, marigolds, impatiens. The PTA wraps them in brightly colored foils with ribbon.
