“Ferns, geraniums, hanging baskets, azaleas, bedding plants, peppers, tomatoes and other vegetable transplants will be offered for sale,” Dr. Jim Collins, horticulturist and Professor of Agriculture. “All plants are student grown at the greenhouses and proceeds will be used for more greenhouse plants and supplies.”
