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. He offered his gardening and business advice and expertise for
the plant selection, for obtaining the plants and for the method of
distribution to our members. He believes in our organization’s purpose and mission and has helped develop this promotion in many ways by giving his time, his staff’s time and by donating a very generous percentage of the sales.
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.
- Peony Flowering Daylilies
- Whitewashed wooden stand with succulents
- Sunpatiens “Razzle Dazzle” Collection
