April Events


With the crazy swings we have been experiencing, remember to keep your potted plants watered especially your pansies. It’s very important with the freezing temperatures expected over the next 2 weeks.

April is a great month for planning your gardens or containers and attending all the wonderful educational classes offered here in our area as well as all the great plant sales.
