The Franklin County 4-H program is sponsoring a strawberry plant sale. For only $5.50, you get 25 strawberry plants. Strawberries are perennial, so you'll have several years of production from just one planting. Sign up (call 263-9226) for the Small Fruit in the Home Garden class coming up on Saturday, April 10 to learn the best ways to grow them, along with cane crops like raspberries and blackberries. Strawberries take well to container gardening and can also be used in an ornamental pyramid planting. Here are some fact sheets. Virginia Tech. University of Arkansas.
Here is the order form. Just print it out, fill in, and mail to the Franklin County Cooperative Extension Office. Orders and payment (checks payable to 4-H Development Fund) are due by Monday, March 29.
Plants will be available for pickup on Tuesday, April 27, after 1:00 PM.
