The Horticulture program at Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) is holding a small fall plant sale at the greenhouses and Building L located across from GNTC’s Floyd County Campus in Rome beginning Tuesday, Sept. 17.
The sale hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. On Fridays, the sale will be a half-day from 9 a.m. to noon. The sale will continue until the plants are sold out.
On Sept. 17 mums will be available for purchase and pansies will be ready around Oct. 1.
The sale is a way for GNTC to contribute to the community that also gives Horticulture students real-world experience.
“I didn’t know that there were so many variations of mums until we started growing plants for this sale,” said Hannah Nesbitt, a Horticulture major from Rome.
The mums are located in a fenced area across from Building L and the pansies are located in the main Horticulture greenhouses. Both buildings are located across the street from GNTC’s Floyd County Campus in Rome.
Buyers should stop by Building L first, said David Warren, director of GNTC’s Horticulture program.
Purchases may be made with cash or check and credit cards are not accepted. All proceeds from the plant sale will benefit the Horticulture program at GNTC.
