The geraniums will be potted in 3-1/2-inch pots, 5-7 inches tall and ready for planting. Many different colors and varieties of geraniums will be available for sale displayed in flats of 18 at a price of $22 per flat. The plants may be bought and picked up May 9 or 10 in front of the church. Garden club members will be on hand to answer questions and assist in loading.

Gardeners of Greater Akron, formerly known as the Men’s Garden Club of Akron, was founded in 1937 in Akron. The name was changed in 2010. According to members, it remains one of the oldest clubs in America and is affiliated with the national organization Men’s Garden Clubs of America.
