Hicks Nurseries in Old Westbury is holding its second annual recycling weekend from July 9 to 11, so mark the date on your calendar and save the plastic pots, flats and cell packs from your spring and summer plantings and bring them to the shop during store hours. The nursery will recycle them, and you get a $10 coupon to use that day toward any purchase of $60 or more.

Last year more than 500 people participated in the program, filling a trash container with thousands of used pots.

Hicks is at 100 Jericho Tpke.
