America’s Best Flowers Hosts Container Workshops

Apr 26, 0014 10am-4pm ongoing

Apr 27, 0014 10am-4pm ongoing

America's Best Flowers, Cottage Grove, WI
Our greenhouse is full of thousands of colorful, fragrant plants that are just waiting to beautify your home and garden. Our container workshop offers you the opportunity to glean a wealth of gardening knowledge from our experienced staff who will help you select the right plants for your location and also assist you with designing your container. It’s a hands-on experience, so bring your gardening gloves and an empty container, or you can purchase one from our extensive pottery collection. Sat. & Sun., April 26-27, ongoing from 10am-4pm.

And because Arbor Day quickly follows Earth Day, and trees help keep our environment clean and healthy, America’s Best Flowers will be giving away a FREE Black Hills Spruce seedling with every purchase (limit one per household while supplies last).

America’s Best Flowers is Dane County’s largest locally owned and operated garden center. We are located at 4311 Vilas Hope Road in Cottage Grove. For more gardening info, visit our website at http://www.americasbestflowers.com
