Despite a colder than average winter, Spring will be here before long and with it comes time to plant new flowers, fruits, trees and shrubs. The Tattnall County 4-H program will be offering over 40 unique varieties of trees, shrubs, and flowering plants to help meet your needs.
Although COVID-19 prevented the sale from being held last year, 4-H’ers and staff alike are excited to be hosting the event again this year. Since it’s beginning in 2017, the sale has helped raise funds for key 4-H events and activities such as District Project Achievement, 4-H Camp Scholarships, and more. This year, 20% of proceeds for each sale will go to support youth who are attending a 4-H Camps and Leadership Conferences.
Some fruit bestsellers are back this year including blackberries (5 varieties), blueberries (6 varieties), muscadines (4 varieties), and figs (2 varieties). Fruit trees available include apples, peaches, and plums. For those wishing to brighten up their yard with Spring flowers, the sale includes roses, camellias, and hydrangeas. Landscape plants returning to the sale this year include abelias, gardenias, loropetelums, and hollies. Three varieties of flowering\ornamental cherry trees and four oak tree varieties will also be available.
