FHS ag students begin annual plant sale
Fairfield High School horticulture class students and FFA members opened their annual spring plant sale Wednesday.
“We have peppers, tomatoes, marigolds, petunias and some other miscellaneous annuals,” said ag teacher and FFA advisor Ann Johnston. “And lots of heirloom tomatoes.”
The plants are available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. today and Friday. Next week, the plants will be available from 8 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 9-10.
“Come directly to the ag room, and we will help you from there,” said Johnston, explaining the ag classroom is in the brick building behind the high school.
“We will also be selling at Fairfield Farmers Market on Saturdays, but not this Saturday due to the Jefferson County Relay for Life,” said Johnston.
All plants, except for Wave Petunias, are 25 cents per plant. Wave Petunias are $1 per plant — a big savings as the seeds are “way more expensive” than that, said Johnston.
Most plants have been moved to single pots due to their size. Johnston said the plants are big this year.
