During each of the past several years, Master Gardeners have sold over 600 poinsettias, making nearly $3000 annually for the scholarship fund. These florist quality poinsettias come in four colors and are vibrant and extra large—a great value for the consumer. They are grown locally, at Peterson's Wholesale Growers, the largest poinsettia grower in south Texas. With minimal care, the plants will easily last until February and beyond—or you can plant them in your yard to enjoy another year. Monies raised from the sales go fund the Bexar County Master Gardener Scholarship(s) in Horticulture Studies. The $2000 scholarships are awarded annually to Horticulture majors in any Texas University. Details of the scholarship and applications are located on the website. Poinsettia orders are taken throughout the fall, with delivery and pick-up at the Extension Office in early December. A large number of Master Gardener volunteers turn out to unload the trucks, sort the plants, and assist patrons with moving their orders to the car. It is a busy, busy day! To order your poinsettias, look for an order form on the website in September!
