Mocksville Garden Club’s greenery sale ends Nov. 16.

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

The club is selling Frasier Fir wreaths in different sizes.

At the last meeting, Jean Harpe  demonstrated how to take a fresh wreath and embellish it with other greenery, and add Christmas adornments, eg, balls, ribbon, candy canes, pine cones, etc.

She discussed using cedar, longleaf pine, magnolia, and several other types of greenery to make a simple wreath look more beautiful. Ms. Harpe also showed how to make a wreath for all seasons following this method of embellishment and using dried okra pods, cotton stalks and so forth.

MGC still has gardening calendars for sale at $8 a piece. Not only do these calendars tell you the right date to destroy weeds, it provides a recipe each month and gives the moon phases, when to prune certain plants, when to spray, and when to plant according to our state’s zone.
