It’s time for the annual School of Agribusiness and Agriscience plant sale at the Horticulture Center on Blue Raider Drive across from the Tennessee Livestock Center.
The sale began April 11 and will continue from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily for three weeks, said professor Cliff Ricketts, the organizer of the event that raises student scholarship funds.
The sale is open to the public and the campus community. Payment is cash and check only; no credit or debit cards will be accepted.
A large selection of vegetables, hanging baskets and bedding plants will be available. The vegetable selections include tomatoes, peppers, okra, cucumbers, watermelon and cantaloupe.
Because of construction, Lightning Way is closed in front of the greenhouse and Horticulture Center.
A plant sale sign will direct people to a special parking area near the greenhouse, where they can enter through the back door. A printable campus map can be found at http://tinyurl.com/MTSUParkingMap13-14.
Off-campus visitors should obtain a parking pass from Parking Services, which is located on the south side of campus just off East Main Street near the university’s main entrance with the monument.
Students in an upper-division agriculture class raised the plants, Ricketts said.
