Arboretum's Ability Garden offers floral Mother's Day gifts


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Looking for a flowery gift for mom this Mother's Day? Head over to the Ability Garden at the New Hanover County Arboretum.

The plants raised at the Arboretum include herbs, lilies and peppers. Funds raised from the plant sale will support the Ability Garden Horticultural Therapy Program, which helps encourage emotional and behavioral growth.

"These plants are all propagated in our horticultural therapy classes, so each and every plant has been grown here with lots of love and lots of care," Plant Ability Coordinator Dagmar Cooley said.

The Ability Garden sale continues tomorrow. Stop by the Arboretum on Oleander Drive from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
