Arkansas Tech Spring Plant Sale Begins April 12

Ferns, geraniums, hanging baskets and azaleas will be among the items available for purchase at the 29th annual Arkansas Tech Department of Agriculture spring plant sale.

The sale will be open on Thursday, April 12, and Friday, April 13, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. The final day of the sale will be Monday, April 16, from 1-4 p.m.

All three days of the sale will be at the Tech Greenhouses on the north end of campus.

Due to construction on Reasoner Lane, there will only be one road to access the Tech Greenhouses during the spring 2012 plant sale.

Shoppers should turn from North Arkansas Ave. to West Harrell Drive (across the street from the Hampton Inn) and follow the signs directing them to the greenhouses.

"These are teaching greenhouses, so all plants are student grown," said Dr. Jim Collins, professor of horticulture at Arkansas Tech. "All proceeds will be used for more greenhouse plants and supplies."

The sale will also include tomato and pepper plants, shrubbery, houseplants, bedding plants, cucumbers, squash and watermelons.
