When it comes time to start planting flowers and veggies, you have lots of choices for buying starters. There is a big sale coming up that supports several great local programs.

The big Spring Plant Sale at The Gardens on Spring Creek is coming up on May 13th and 14th. Remember, the "green thumb" rule is to wait to plant things until after Mother's Day (May 14th), in case of a last frost.

The Facebook page for the sale promises "thousands of annuals, herbs, perennials, and veggie starts" with proceeds of the sale supporting horticulture programs at CSU, FRCC, High Plains Environmental Center, and The Gardens.

They do ask that you bring your own carrying box. Credit cards will be accepted.
