GCFM and National Garden Club Events

National Garden Club Fund Raiser
There was an overwhelming response to the PLANT AMERICA Community Project Grants Program. 415 garden clubs applied in the first year of this new NGC program! This is wonderful that so many clubs are active in their communities. In order for this fund to increase so that NGC can give more grants, P. Allen Smith is providing a fundraising
opportunity for PLANT AMERICA Grants Beginning March 1 and ending June 15, National Garden Clubs will be selling plants selected by P. Allen Smith. This promotion, entitled Inspiring Gardens Across America, includes three different collections of
plants. Each item was chosen because of a special feature in its hybridization for performance or beauty or for its limited availability in the general marketplace.

1. Peony Flowering Daylily Collection
2. Sunpatiens® ‘Razzle Dazzle’ Collection
3. Whitewashed Wooden Stand with Succulents

More detailed descriptions of these plants are included on the NGC webpage and orders can be placed NGC Website Online Shop.
