A NOTE FROM FFA ADVISOR MARTY SPETH:

“The petunia and Dragon Wing Hanging Baskets look really good! The Cheesecake and Black Satin Petunias are very nice and will sell out quickly. The Coleus is very nice and there are 10 varieties. New this year are the 12-inch Welcome and American Sign planters and the combinations of planters are very good. And will sell quickly. The Eye Candy Dahlias are back and the Hypnotica Tropical Breeze Dahlias look really good! We have tomatoes that are big and in bloom for that early crop of tomatoes, also smaller veggies.”
