Think spring and consider fruit-bearing plants in your landscape. The Macon County 4-H Council is taking orders for raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, and strawberry plants, grape vine, and peach, pear, cherry, and apple trees. These plants are bare root, except for blueberries, and come directly from the nursery. Place your orders by February 20 with Cooperative Extension at 193 Thomas Heights Road. Order blanks are online at macon.ces.ncsu.edu. Just drop off your order at the Agricultural Services Center. Plants will be available for pick-up March 7 and 8 at the Agricultural Services Center.
