Hays High FFA holds plant sale

On April 15 through April 17, the Hays High FFA organization held its plant sale in the Hays High greenhouse.

They sold a variety of flowers and plants, including petunias, pansies, portulacas, snapdragons, vincas, celosias, impatiens, salvias, zinnias, ageratums, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers.

The items were reasonably priced, ranging from $2 for a four-pack of veggies and/or a four-inch veggie pot, $2.50 for a six-pack of flowers and $10 for a 10-inch hanging basket.

FFA and Horticulture classes were involved making the plant sale a reality.

“The Horticulture classes at Hays High are the students who do all the work – planting, caring and preparing to sell,” instructor Nikole Winter said. “FFA members then sign up to work the plant sales on each of those days.”

Many students involved in FFA enjoy associating with and helping others.

“My favorite part is definitely getting to hang out with your friends,” sophomore Karli Neher said. “You just get really close to that group of students.”
