I wanted to pass along this email from a friend ~ shop for a good cause!
When my fuchsia club picked a date for the sale this year, we figured mid-April would be about right for weather and putting out plants -Boy, were we ever wrong!But - The sale must go on, and we are stuck with one of the coldest, most miserable Saturdays of the month (at least I hope it will get better from here).
This Saturday, April 19, (TODAY) our hearty band of fuchsia lovers will be standing on the corner of North 12th and Stevens, in the parking lot of the Amvets Hall, across from Jefferson Elementary, trying to keep our little plants (and ourselves) from freezing, and hoping that generous souls will come by and buy our plants to make our misery worthwhile.
We will have LOTS of hearty fuchsias, for your garden and for baskets, along with a multitute of other plants - generally perennials - to decorate your lives and your homes once the weather warms up enough for them to grow. Please come and take advantage of a nice sale of plants, despite the miserable rotten weather. Maybe next year we will pick a day like last Saturday was!
North 12th and Stevens
9 AM to 1 PMSaturday, April 19.
