It’s time to think about ordering that Christmas greenery

Published 1:28 pm Tuesday, October 17, 2023

Now is the time to order Christmas greenery.

“It may seem early, but it’s no,” said Linda Dean, Mocksville Garden Club president. “Remember, if you have a business, a nice wreath will look lovely on your front door or in a front window. Plus, think of what all you can do with greenery at your home.”

The club is holding a fundraiser for their $1,500 scholarship. This year, the club is selling all types of Christmas greenery, except trees. All greenery is made from fresh Fraser Fir tree trimmings.

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

To place an order or check prices, call or text Becky Peters at 336-287-1256. She will be at the Davie County Public Library in the small conference room on Nov. 15 and 16 from 5-7 p.m. collecting orders and payments. Nov. 16tis the last day to order.

Greenery orders may be picked up on Saturday morning after Thanksgiving, Nov. 25 at 257 Wandering Lane in Mocksville.

The club is also selling Blum’s Almanac 2024 Gardening Calendars for $8.

“If you garden you will realize how special these calendars are to have on hand for reference and also make nice gifts for other folks who like gardening,” Dean said. “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 to try for each month. Plus, there is a map of the US showing each state’s zone and average temperature,  which is very useful when buying new plants.”

These calendars will be available at the library on the same dates as the greenery orders above and available at the greenery pick-up site on Nov. 25. If you miss these  opportunities, call Jean Harpe on 336-998-5725. The deadline for purchasing a calendar is when they are sold out.

If you would like to know more about the club, give Deana call or text on 336-909-5041 or email lindadean61@gmail.com. Monthly programs are open to the public. Club programs are available September October, November and January through May. Watch the Davie County Enterprize Record and Facebook for information on upcoming programs.

The Nov. 2 program will be being presented by club member Jean Harpe on “Wreath Making.”  The Club meets monthly on the first Thursday night at 7 at the old fellowship hall behind the First United Methodist  Church in Mocksville.
