The Red Mountain Garden Club will host its annual Greenery Sale on Wednesday, December 3, at Birmingham Botanical Gardens from 9 - 1 p.m. Proceeds from the sale benefit Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Birmingham Museum of Art and other civic endeavors throughout the city. Fresh cut greenery such as Hemlock, Pine, Frasier Fir and Magnolia can be purchased as well as beautiful wreaths in different sizes. Members also construct handmade kissing balls, topiary trees and table arrangements. For a special treat these talented ladies will create a beautiful arrangement for your mailbox for you to enjoy. Unusual ribbon, bows and unique gift items are available to complete your Holiday decorating and gift giving.

Garden Club members as well as Pratt Brown of Pratt Brown Landscapes and Bob Newton of Landscape Services donate much of the greenery.
