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.
