Annual Plant Sale A Success

Once again the annual plant sale at the Nix Horticulture Complex was huge success. Horticulture enthusiasts showed up early to buy plants and get advice from faculty and students alike.

Anita used her culinary and catering skills to provide customers with barbecue sandwiches and grilled vegetables.
Don makes sure those flats stay well watered for customers during the fundraiser.
Dawn helps a customer to her car with a cart full of plants that will soon be in the garden.
This was a common site on campus as people wanted to make sure their newly purchased plants did not overheat in their cars.
In addition to many types of annuals, containerized perennial plant materials were also sold.
Some horticulture students also provided a three piece band to entertain shoppers during the sale.
Good plants, good prices, good food and good music. If you didn't get a chance to stop by the sale this year make sure you put it on your calendar for next year.
