Even though we are closed for the winter, everyone at America’s Best Flowers is busy planning for spring. 2010 will be filled with many special events, planned with YOU in mind.

April 3rd is our Community Egg Hunt. April 17-18, our Spring Open House which will feature FREE hot dogs and popcorn.  Other spring events will include our annual Herb Fest, a specialEarth and Arbor Day Celebration, featuring FREE children’s activities, followed by Container Workshops.

We have teamed up with St. Vincent de Paul and their community gardens.  On May 1 and 2 come and purchase a four pack of peppers and/or tomatoes for use in the community gardens that are used to feed the hungry.  Approximately 45% of your pack purchase will be donated them in the form of cash by us to help the community garden.  Also consider volunteering to help in the community garden or growing a row of vegetables in your garden for them to feed the hungry of Dane County.

The first Saturday in May is our annual “SALSA SATURDAY,” when we celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Latin music, free samples of chips and salsa, and you can even plant a salsa container that weekend at our workshop. We will give away a $50 gift certificate for the best salsa recipe in our Salsa Recipe Contest.

Special Mother’s Day activities and free classes on vegetable and perennial gardening will continue throughout the season, along with our Make and Take Workshops and plenty of children’s activities.  We also promise you many exciting surprises. Our goal is to hold events that are interesting and helpful to our customers. Remember to give us your input. We’re listening!
