Florence-Keep The Shoals Beautiful, the local affiliate Keep America Beautiful, has partnered with the Shoals Master Gardeners for a free hydrangea give away! On Thursday, November 15, from 9 a.m. until, hydrangeas will be given away at the Florence Lauderdale Coliseum in the first ever National Planting Day.
Keep America Beautiful is promoting National Planting Day to encourage the planting of native species to support local ecosystems, reduce water consumption, improve soil stability and provide food and shelter for indigenous wildlife. While the event is nationwide, the choice of giving away hydrangeas is ideal for the Shoals area as the oak leaf hydrangea is the official Alabama state wildflower.
You are invited to be a part of the first ever National Planting Day and as long as supplies last, receive up to three hydrangeas from Keep The Shoals Beautiful. In addition, the Shoals Master Gardeners will be on hand to provide planting tips and instructions. We hope to see you at the Florence Lauderdale Coliseum at 702 East Veterans Drive on November 15th!
