Gwinnett Tech holding annual community plant sale

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Gwinnett Technical College's environmental horticulture program is holding its 16th annual community plant sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and Thursday at the Gwinnett Tech Greenhouse, adjacent to Building 600.

"The spring plant sale is the most popular event that the horticulture program hosts," said Aaron Poulsen, environmental horticulture program director. "Along with annuals and perennials, we have a lot of hanging baskets this year. We also have some real exciting colors in plants and flowers that will make a great addition to anyone's garden."

The plant sale features the work of Gwinnett Tech environmental horticulture students and raises money for the environmental horticulture program.

Plants featured in this sale include begonias, coleus, geraniums, herbs, heuchera, impatiens, mandevilla, night-blooming cereus, petunias and rudbeckia.

There are plans for another sale featuring edible plants on May 12 and 13.

Gwinnett Tech offers an associate degree and a diploma program in environmental horticulture, plus certificate options that train students for employment as a landscape design technician, landscape/greenhouse installation technician, and in floral design.
