But getting close:
The 4-H Strawberry Plant Sale is going on now!
The Franklin County 4-H program is sponsoring a strawberry plant sale. For only $5.83 you get 25 strawberry plants. There are eight different varieties to choose from - early, mid, and late season, as well as day neutral everbearing varieties. Strawberries are perennial, so you'll have several years of production from just one planting. Strawberries take well to container gardening and can also be used in an ornamental pyramid planting. Here are some fact sheets from Virginia Tech and the University of Arkansas.
Plants will be available for pickup at the Franklin County Extension Office on Wednesday, April 10th, 2013.
- Email orders to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 26, 2013. Make sure to include the number of bundles, variety/varieties and the total cost as well as your name and phone number.
