Mocksville Garden Club

It’s that time of year again when the Mocksville Garden Club holds their yearly fundraiser for the scholarship program.

Members are selling all types of Christmas greenery, except trees. All greenery is made from fresh Fraser Fir tree trimings.

The table arrangements can last beyond Valentines Day (and a 6-foot table arrangement if you need something like that); 24-inch swags; a huge candy cane wreath that is beautiful and a big seller; four sizes of door and window wreaths (18, 22, 30, and 36”);  kissing balls; garland in 25′ and 75′ sizes; and also big red bows if you need one.

If you would like to place an order or check on prices, call or text Becky Peters at 336-287-1256. She will be at the Davie County Library on North Main Street in Mocksville in the small conference room on Nov. 16  and 17 from 5-7 p.m. collecting orders and payments. Nov. 17 is the last day to order.

Greenery orders will be ready for pick-up on the Saturday morning after Thanksgiving, Nov. 26 at 257 Wandering Lane in Mocksville. If you have a business, a nice wreath will look lovely on your front door or in a front window.

The club is also selling Blum’s Almanac 2023 Gardening Calendars for $8.If you garden you will realize how special these calendars are to have on hand. According to the Moon’s phases and signs, you can see when to plant, weed, prune, fertilize, etc., and all kinds of neat things.

The calendar also has a good recipe for each month. Plus, there there is a map of the US showing each state’s zone and average temperature,  which is useful when buying new plants.

To get a calendar, call Jean Harpe on 336-998-5725. These calendars make great gifts to gardening friends or yourself. Calendars will be available until sold out.
