Can you feel spring on its way?
This year’s gardening events are starting to bloom. See
what’s on the way for next week.
Plant Your Own Hanging Basket Class, 10 a.m.
Southwood Landscape and Garden Center, 9025 S. Lewis Ave.
The nursery’s designers will tell participants the best
plants to use in creating a hanging basket and how to make
them work together. Class participants pick their combination
of plants and plant them, and Southwood will grow the
arrangement until spring. Each basket will cost the same as
a completed basket would cost in the spring, but yours will
have a personal touch.
