Mum sale to benefit KB Fund

The annual KB Fall Mum Sale has started. Beautiful fall mums are available in a variety of colors for $8 each.

Orders will be taken through Aug. 21.

“These plants are grown in Northern Illinois and will arrive just in time for fall decorating,” said KB volunteer Lesley Sheffield. “Mums are field grown in natural conditions, leading to a more hardy robust plant.”

Plants arrive in a number 2 pot (about a 2 gallon pot) and measure approximately 16-18” wide by 14-16” tall with buds ready to bloom throughout the season. There are 5 colors to choose from this year.
