On Tuesday, June 25, nine Master Gardeners and one guest drove to Stoughton, Wis., to visit the greenhouses at the Flower Factory.
Many in the group had not been there before and were treated to shopping and viewing plants in the 17 greenhouses as well as the many displays outside on the grounds. The owners graciously provided a lovely area for the group to eat their sack lunches and presented them with a free plant.
The group agreed that there will be many return trips made for visits and purchases. For more information on the Master Gardener program contact the Washington County Extension at 319-653-4811. There will be a Master Gardener training beginning in September.
