Spring plant sale underway on campus

April 4, 2014

Garden enthusiasts can welcome spring with a variety of plants available for purchase at the Mississippi State University Horticulture Club’s spring plant sale.

The student-run event will be from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday [April 4] and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday [April 5] at the greenhouses behind Dorman Hall. The event is open to the public.

Horticulture club members will sell colorful bedding plants, such as petunias, marigolds, and impatiens. They will have lantana and begonia plants in hanging baskets. Other plants available include succulents, and vegetable and herb plants, such as tomatoes, peppers and basil.

Club members raise the plants they sell, and the proceeds will fund service projects.
