Garden Day is March 2
Plan now to attend Wilson County Garden Day Saturday, March 2, at the Floresville Alternative Education Center, just off U.S. 181 in Floresville, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This event offers plants and ideas for your garden, flower beds, lawn, or patio, and is fun for the whole family. Sponsors include the Wilson County News, 930 AM KLUP, Milberger’s Nursery, and the San Antonio Water System.
A wealth of children’s activities -- including play areas and make-and-take craft events -- will keep kids entertained while parents and grandparents shop and browse the many vendors and enjoy live music and activities.
An anchor of this seventh-annual event is the Floresville Alternative Education Center’s S.T.A.R.S. program’s plant sale. Buy your trees, shrubs, bedding plants, and hanging baskets, as well as vegetable plants and several tomato varieties.
The day will feature a live broadcast of “Gardening South Texas” with Dr. Calvin Finch and Dr. Jerry Parsons on 930 AM KLUP radio, along with a silent auction, drawings, and seminars on cultivating plants, wildlife issues, beekeeeping, and more.
Gear up for Garden Day by testing your plant knowledge on page 1D of this issue. The winner will receive a gift certificate to an area nursery or garden center.
The Floresville Alternative Education Center is located at 335 Alternative Lane.
