Potted bulbs are a great idea to add color and freshness to dark winter days. It also gives students a chance to discover the fun of growing their own plants and encouraging future planting projects. Garden Club members visit local schools monthly to educate kids in gardening and spark excitement to get outdoors and try their hands at gardening. The Bentonville Garden Club will meet Feb. 26 at the Bentonville History Museum. A history of the Bentonville Garden Club will be presented by Leah Whitehead and Becky McCoy. Whitehead is president of the Benton County Historical Society and has an extensive knowledge of the area. The meeting will begin at 12:30 with refreshments. Information: (479) 366-0235.
