DAVENPORT, IA—Big Brothers Big Sisters is now accepting mail-in and online orders until April 23rd for its Annual Plant Sale. Flowers will be available after this date at their retail site May 5th – 13th at Northwest Bank Tower in Davenport.
The Plant Sale offers hundreds of annuals and specialty plants for purchase including flats, hanging baskets, spikes, and vinca vines. Individual, group, and corporate orders are encouraged through the pre-order campaign by visiting www.bbbs-mv.org. Pre-orders over $150.00 can be delivered to your home or business May 5th-8th.
“Hanging baskets in particular have been really popular in recent years. They make a great Mother’s Day gift. In addition to the online order form, the website features photos of all the types of plants we have available, so people have a better idea of what they’re ordering,” Justin said.
Big Brothers Big Sisters recommends that customers order their plants in advance to ensure the fulfillment of their entire order. Pre-orders can be placed on the agency’s website at www.bbbs-mv.org. Customers can also call Big Brothers Big Sisters at (563) 323-8006 to have an order form mailed to them.
For pre-orders, customers have a chance to help beautify a local summer camp for youth and a woman’s shelter. Purchase one or more flats of flowers to be donated to Camp Shalom or Winnie’s Place.
Pick-up and delivery of pre-orders will be Saturday, May 5th through Tuesday, May 8th. Retail and walk-up sales will be held Saturday, May 5th through Sunday, May 13th, at the Northwest Bank Tower in Davenport.
“People like to bring their mothers and shop for plants together,” Justin said. “For many families, companies and individuals, the Plant Sale has become a Mother’s Day tradition.”
The plant sale is presented by Iowa American Water, Ruhl&Ruhl Realtors, Hazelwood Homes and Heritage Landscape Design. Other sponsors include Northwest Bank & Trust Company, Becker & Becker, RSC Equipment Rental, Modern Woodmen, Lujack’s, DMW Design, WHBF-TV, Quad-City Times and Koehler Electric.
