Newsletter 9

Week 9 (5/24/2006)


We’ve got some interesting and informative events scheduled for the next few weeks here at America’s Best Flowers. Our Quick Classes and workshops are typically FREE.  There may be a charge for materials for some of our events, such as the upcoming Father’s Day planter for elementary school children or our Make-A-Scarecrow Day, but unlike other greenhouses, our classes are usually complimentary. Our events are RAIN OR SHINE because we have over 2 acres of covered greenhouses at our main location in Cottage Grove. Come on out and join us!  We love getting to know our customers.
