The HHS Greenhouse Sale opens Saturday (April 13) with a large selection of plants for the house and yard.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The sale, which is in the greenhouse outside the fine arts hall, will continue until the plants are gone, probably into May. Prices range from $3 to $25

A variety of colors and species are available, including vegetable plants, said agricultural teacher Hailey Gates.

The sale is sponsored by FFA (Future Farmers of America). Proceeds will go to the organization for scholarships, travel and other expenses.

Gates said all the plants were grown by students on the Horticulture Team.
