Don’t forget about the 4-H wreath sale

By Morgan Watts
Rowan Cooperative Extension

With cooler weather in the forecast and Christmas being less than 60 days away, now is the time to start preparing.

The N.C. Cooperative Extension, Rowan County Center 4-H Program is hosting its yearly wreath sale. We have an amazing assortment of items to pick from. All are made by Pardue Tree Farm and Nursery, which is a small family-owned and operated Christmas tree farm in Alleghany County.

A fresh wreath that is cared for properly will be enjoyed for a month or more. Not only are the wreaths beautiful to look at, but the fragrance is amazing also.

Twelve-inch boxwood and Fraser fir wreaths are available. There are also 24-inch Fraser firs and 16-inch boxwoods. Boxwood and Fraser wreaths range in price from $20-$40 depending on size and type.

Also available are Christmas stars, square wreaths, boxwood and Fraser fir kissing balls, and double mix wreaths. These additional items range in price from $25-$50 depending on size and type.

If you are interested in garland, we have white pine available in sizes 25, 50 and 75 feet. These range in price from $20-$40 depending on length.

These wreaths are handmade and fresh when you pick them up. Pickup will be on Thursday, Nov. 29, at the Agriculture Center, 2727 Old Concord Road, from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

To order or receive pricing information, call the Rowan County Center at 704-216-8970 or visit our website at https://rowan.ces.ncsu.edu/2018/10/rowan-county-4-h-wreath-sale/. The deadline to order is Nov. 14.
