Northeast High School holds horticulture plant sale

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – For those flower enthusiasts out there, Northeast High School in Macon is holding a horticulture plant sale which began Tuesday.

The sale, which is open to the public, will take place every Tuesday through Friday from 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m., and will last until every flower has been sold.

Anything from geraniums to petunias to even jalapeno pepper plants can be had at the sale, all of which was grown in Northeast’s very own greenhouse and cultivated by the school’s students.

Lula Williams, Northeast’s agriculture science teacher, says the sale just isn’t about selling flowers, but seeing her students’ hard work pay off.

“I have a lot of students interested,” said Williams. “Of course, I won’t be able to teach them everything, but I’ll be teaching them the basics.”

“As far as florists are concerned, they don’t want them to come in to try and learn how to construct a bow,” Williams added, “They want them to already know how to construct a bow.”

Prices range from $1.50 for a single plant to as much as $45 dollars for arranged baskets. All proceeds from the sale will go back into the school’s horticulture program.
