The Stephens County 4-H will host a plant sale beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 6, at the 4-H greenhouse, located at 2622 U.S. Highway 180 East (at the intersection of U.S. 180 and State Highway 67). It will be open to the public.

The plants for sale include petunias, geraniums, sweet potato vine, begonias, purslane, impatiens and more. Hanging baskets and various sized potted plants will also be available.

The organizers advise to get there early, since they sold out in two hours last year.

The plant sale is part of the 4-H Garden Club’s activities, and proceeds from the sale will benefit the Stephens County AgriLife Extension – Agriculture & Natural Resources programming. The Garden Club is open to local 4-H members in third through 12th grades. They started meeting earlier this month and will continue through May.

During the program, the 4-H’ers learn horticultural skills and concepts in a hands-on setting. They learn to propagate flower, fruit and vegetable plants from seeds, plugs and cuttings. They also cultivate plants in the AgriLife Extension greenhouse and gain marketing and sales experience through the plant sale.

For more information, contact the local AgriLife Extension office at 254-559-2313.
