The Horticulture program at Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) is extending its fall plant sale to Oct. 15

The sale is taking place at the greenhouses and Building L located across from GNTC’s Floyd County Campus in Rome.

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 Oct. 15 or all the plants are sold out.

Pansies and mums are available for purchase. Mums cost $4 each and pansies cost $3 a six pack or $11 a flat.

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.
