I would suggest that you band them at the base and set them out 
unbagged.  They don't dessicate easily6 and are more visually 
appealing.   I had a number of folks purchase bunches as table 
centerpieces.  I band 20-25 scapes @ $2.  To save time, band them as 
they are removed.  In years past I have bagged them and they didn't sell 
nearly as well.  It is a great celery substitute in potato salad.
