Plant Sale Hosted by Horticulture Club April 23-27

Posted: Apr 12, 2018

Members of the Horticulture Club at Surry Community College will hold a Spring Plant Sale Monday, April 23 through Friday, April 27 in the greenhouse on campus at 630 S. Main St., Dobson, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. An evening session will be available on Wednesday, April 25 from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m.

Surry Community College’s Horticulture Club members Brandan Shur of Mount Airy and Laura Fackrell of Pilot Mountain work in the greenhouse caring for plants for the upcoming sale.

“There’s a wide variety of plants to choose from,” said Horticulture Instructor Jeff Jones. “We have an excellent selection this year and will be selling everything from annuals, perennials, succulents, and vegetables to shrubs and trees.”

Cost of plants start at $1 and go up depending on the size and type of plant. The Horticulture Club seeks to develop career interests through production activities, networking, and field trips. Proceeds benefit the club’s educational activities.
