Spring Planting Season Upon Us
(MENA) Signs of Spring are all around us, from the tiny spring beauties in the grass to the heart-lifting blossoms of tulip magnolias that survived the late hard frost.
As you move around town in the next few weeks, you are very likely to observe Master Gardeners beginning their annual springtime routine on all their Sanctioned Projects. Their mission is “beautifying Polk County, one Project at a time”.
The familiar green and white signs with the logo of the University of Arkansas Extension Service and the notation “Project of Polk County Master Gardeners” appear at the Courthouse, the Rose Garden, and the Depot.
April is also the time Master Gardeners swing into high gear preparing for their Annual Plant Sale. They will be having at least one Planning Committee meeting, one workday and one potting day scheduled for each week in April. There will be more potting days as the month draws to a close.
The Annual Plant Sale will be held on Saturday, May 11, at the Polk County Fairgrounds, from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
