According to Dr. Jim Collins, professor of agriculture, horticulturist, the plants for sale include: “Ferns, geraniums, lantanas, hanging baskets, bedding plants, peppers, tomaotes and many other plants.” The greenhouses are filled with student grown plants and all the proceeds from this event go back into the college for more plants and supplies.
