Items being sold include annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, hanging baskets, blooming plants, Boston ferns and geraniums. The vegetable plants will include tomato, pepper, squash, cucumber, zucchini, cantaloupe and watermelon. Flowering plants include impatiens, dianthuses, petunias, marigolds, SunPatiens, lantana and million bells.

The sale will take place at the greenhouses located across from GNTC’s Floyd County Campus, next to the Woodlee Building.
