Annual 4-H Plant Sale

Flyers for the 4-H Plant Sale are here! 

A great way to keep a landscape fresh and inviting is to update with a few new plants, and Cobb County 4-H is offering a great selection of ornamental and fruiting plants for sun and shade again this year as part of its annual fundraising activities.

Among the new plants offered this year are the "Ruby Slippers" Oakleaf hydrangea, whose foliage turns ruby red in autumn, "Goldmound" Spirea, with color-changing foliage that will liven any landscape, "Rose Creek" Abelia, with evergreen leaves and butterfly-friendly flowers, and the high-yielding "Granny Val" Muscadine grape.

Orders for plants can be made now, continuing until March 11. Plants can be picked up at Jim Miller Park on March 21. For order forms and additional information, visit our office website or call our office at 770-528-4070.

To learn how to care for new fruit plants, you can attend the presentation "Growing and Caring for Fruit Plants," by Cobb County Horticulture Agent Neil Tarver, Monday, March 9, 6:30-8:00 p.m., at the Cobb County Water System training lab, 662 South Cobb Drive, Marietta, GA, 30060. Please preregister for the class by calling 770-528-4070.
