RE: plant sale in gwinnett next week

I live off of 316,very close to gwinnett tech and wished I would have heard about this. I am new to gardening and new to GW and that would have been nice to get alittle kick-start. Although I am finding myself to be more of a seed starter. Thanks and I hope I can attend the next one.

Welcome, Michael. GW will be a very good way to further your learning. And I'd guess you could visit the school if you can find time.

This forum has been quiet lately. Keep checking in though. You might really like the Winter Sowing Forum too. Send me an email - depending on your 'wants' I may have some things to share with you. BTW, completely forgot about the sale! Shame on me.

Rosie, in Sugar Hill
