|MJHS Greenhouse Plant Sale|
|Tuesday, April 9, 2013|
The Mt. Juliet High School Greenhouse Management course is hosting the 33rd annual Greenhouse Plant Sale April 17, 18 and 19.
The event is open to the public from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on sale days while supplies last.
The greenhouse is used as a teaching tool to show the students taking the course how to grow a healthy greenhouse crop that anyone from a seasoned vegetable grower to a novice gardener would be interested in purchasing for their own gardens.
The students will be hosting the sale right out of their greenhouses with fair prices for both flats and hanging baskets brimming with blooms ready to make your garden burst with color.
The greenhouses are located at 1800 Curd Road on the northern side of the building.
The students have worked all semester growing, trimming and primping plants to look their best for the opening day.
Hanging baskets range between $12-$15, depending on the type of plant.
Hanging baskets consist of Boston Ferns, fuchsia, wave petunia, ivy geranium, non-stop begonia, trailing purslane and more.
Flats will start at $12 and can be mixed and matched to your liking.
Flats include impatiens, wax begonias, marigold, dianthus, petunia, coleus, periwinkle, etc.
Limited quantities of tomato and bell pepper plants are also available.
All sales made will benefit the Agricultural Department of Mt. Juliet High School, and will be used to purchase the materials for next year’s crop, and upkeep and improvements to the greenhouse facility.
