The weather has been great – unusual for February! Snowdrops have been in bloom, Crocuses are now blooming, other spring flowers are peaking out of the ground. Before we know it, spring will be in full bloom and it will be time to start thinking about planting our perennials. Our local Wayne Township 4-H (they do deliver in the District 6 area of Pike Township as well) is having their annual Geranium Sale. By purchasing flowers through 4-H you help support them and the great things they offer for our youth. This is their one big fundraising effort – and I have always had great luck with their flowers.
Besides Geraniums they are also selling Dahlias, Gerbera Daisies, and Wave Petunias. This is their 3rd year with these flowers, and they have been very popular.
While the flowers will not arrive until the end of April or early May, the orders do need to be in by MARCH 20th. I have attached the order forms for you to print off and send in. You will be contacted when they arrive and then pick-up or delivery can be arranged. If you have any further questions, please direct them to: Alice Sweeney, Wayne Township 4-H Director at 317-902-8456 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to forward this email to others who may be interested in not only the beauty of these flowers, but also in supporting our local 4-H Youth.

In addition to the usual Seed Geraniums Wayne Township 4-H now has four other flowering plants the help beautify our yards, flower beds and containers. These plants shown below come in 6 inch containers and are ready to go to work for you.
Zonal Geranium Dahlia Gerber Daisy Wave Petunia
Zonal Geraniums mature at 12 to 14 inches tall and have a 12 to 14 inch spread. They are grown from cuttings and are stronger stemmed and bushier than the traditional bedding geraniums.
Dahlias mature at 15 to 20 inches tall and have a 12 to 20 inch spread. They are a stunning flowering plant that fits nicely in any garden mix.
Gerber Daisies grow to 12 inches with an 8 inch spread and works best in containers, beds or borders.
Wave Petunias reach 8 to 12 inches tall and spread profusely. Each plant will spread to 30 inches or more. They are great for hanging baskets as well.
