Bella Vista Gar­den Club to hold fall plant sale Oct. 6

The Weekly Vista - - News - Staff Re­port

The Bella Vista Gar­den Club will hold its an­nual Fall Plant Sale from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m Satur­day, Oct. 6, in the park­ing lot of Allen’s Food Mar­ket lo­cated at 60 Sugar Creek Cen­ter. Chair­woman, Deb­bie Edmunds, said, “We’re very ex­cited about the va­ri­ety of plants avail­able for pur­chase this year. From shrubs and trees to peren­ni­als, gar­den­ers will find plenty to spruce up their gar­dens and es­tab­lish healthy root sys­tems over the win­ter months. We will have a won­der­ful as­sort­ment of mums avail­able for those who pre­paid for their or­ders dur­ing BVGC meet­ings, at the Gar­den Party held last June or at the Farm­ers Mar­ket this sum­mer. There will also be ad­di­tional mums avail­able for sale, but those in­ter­ested should ar­rive early as the plants sell out quickly. Mums will be avail­able in yel­low, white, red, pur­ple, bronze and tri-color. Should you wish to pre-or­der mums, there is still time. We’ll be tak­ing or­ders at the Farm­ers Mar­ket next Sun­day.”

The club will also have Bella Vista daf­fodil bulbs for sale. The Bella Vista daf­fodil is an eye-catch­ing flower with white petals and a broad, red­dish/ orange cup. It grows to heights of 12-16 inches and blooms in mid-Spring. Daf­fodils are pest re­sis­tant and do well in NWA land­scapes. The Bella Vista Gar­den Club has planted over 15,000 Bella Vista daf­fodils through­out the city in re­cent years.

Pro­ceeds from the Fall Plant Sale are used to fund schol­ar­ships for stu­dents study­ing hor­ti­cul­ture at area col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties. They are also used to sup­port a va­ri­ety of beau­ti­fi­ca­tion projects around Bella Vista.
