Halstad, MN -- If you’re in the business of selling flowers, chances are business has been pretty good over the last couple days. Over in Halstad, Valley Hardware and Supply plans to have all of their 300 plus roses sold by mid day. Selling the roses this week is the easy part, but its preparing and arranging them that is most difficult. Fortunately for John Hinkley, owner of Valley Hardware and Supply, he is happy to get a helping hand from the Norman County West FFA.

Hinkley adds that not only do the students get some real-life horticulture experience, but they also help ease the burden for the store.

Hinkley expects most of the flowers to be sold out by noon Wednesday, but they should still have balloons, chocolates, and other items available for those who forgot.
