Spring plant sales are underway for Lincoln-Way Central and West students. Months of hard work and delicate nurturing have paid off for the students in Marc Hucek’s Greenhouse Management class and Intro to Horticulture.
The two classes
began growing this year’s plants in early February in the school’s greenhouse
and are ready to begin selling them to the community.
“They go on
sale Friday, May 9 from 7:15 to 8 a.m. and 3 to 4 p.m. until they sell
out. The green house will be open the week of May 12 from 7:30 to 8 a.m.,” noted
vegetables for sale include geraniums, petunias, impatiens, asters, celosia,
sweet potato vine, tomatoes, peppers, watermelon, zucchini, and pansy’s to name
flowers are $2 and flats are $10 (6-6packs). Hanging baskets and all other
plants are marked, noted Hucek.
“All the proceeds from selling the plants goes back into the program to buy supplies for the poinsettia plant sale next winter,” noted Hucek.
