Treat Yourself to Spring Flowers Before Snow Showers

Stuff We Love
By Lynda Wheatley | Nov. 27, 2021

If appliance stores can have Christmas in July, there’s no reason we can’t enjoy a little garden-season shopping and celebrating now. The Friendly Garden Club of Traverse City is making it possible with a sweet (and sweet-smelling) deal on a bounty of Americana and Calliope geraniums.

Order by Dec. 3 for pickup May 12, 2022 at The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park, and don’t feel a bit guilty for buying yourself flowers before Christmas; the sale is a fundraiser that helps the FGC fund grants, scholarships, and community club projects that beautify Traverse City.

Choose from at least five different colors of Americanas in individual 5- or 12-inch pots ($5.25 or $25 each), full eight-plant cases ($39) or 13-inch hanging baskets ($25). Prices are the same for Calliopes, but the options in sizes and color are more limited. See the for details and ordering information.
