The Bluebell Garden Club Holiday Greenery Project has created 38 decorative planter arrangements for downtown merchants, Montwell Commons, the Greenbrier Historical Society, Carnegie Hall, Greenbrier County Public Library, and Lee Street Studios. The yearly fundraiser, started in 2018, is completed before the Magic of Christmas in Lewisburg begins this month.
Over 25 members and three spouses participated in the six-day long process of selecting, gathering, organizing, bagging, and creatively arranging the holiday floral planters. This year there was exceptional community support. People generously offered curly willow, magnolia, holly, hydrangea, and a variety of evergreen plants for clippings.
Along with the maintenance watering done by the container owners, for the first time this year, the arrangements have been sprayed with Wilt Pruf by the volunteer efforts of Greenbrier Plant Health Care. Wilt Pruf seals in moisture helping to preserve the foliage throughout the season.
