If you stopped in for the Mocksville Garden Club’s monthly meeting, you would think love was in the air.

Lillian Sharpe provided a red rose centerpiece and Marge Walker provided chocolate dipped strawberries. Of course, Lillian and Marge had many other goodies that made a great preempt to Valentine’s Day.

The February program was on plant propagation. Susan Hawkins, Extension agent for agriculture and horticulture for Davie County,  made propagation look and sound easy. She spoke on propagating plants and shrubs and also covered a few legal rules on propagating patented plants. Susan’s office is located in the NC Cooperative Extension building on Wilkesboro Street. For more information on propagating or agriculture, stop in to see Susan.

MGC’s next meeting is March 7, 7 pm, at the old fellowship hall, on Church St., behind the First Methodist Church.  The program will be presented by Susan Newman Landscape Design, specializing in residential landscaping.

All programs are open to the public. If interested in landscape design, drop in by 7 p.m. If you are interested in finding out more about the MGC,  come to the meeting or call or text Linda Dean at 336-909-5041. The club also has a Facebook page.
