Need a quick but lasting gift for Mother's Day? Look no further than the Green Thumb Cottage.

The Cottage, located at 1604 W. Fourth Street in Big Spring, is home of the Howard County Master Gardeners, who will be holding their annual spring sale this weekend.

Time and date for the event is 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday.

“We know people are busy, and sometimes Mother's Day can sneak up on them. We also know a potted plant or a tree that will keep on living and giving is one of the best gifts we can give that special mom,” said Julie Coates, the organization's president.

Available at the sale will be trees, shrubs, roses, vines, perennials and annuals — many of which are drought tolerant and heat tolerant.

“We are offering the perfect location to find the perfect gift, Coates said. “It's also the perfect place to find plants for spring planting.”
