The Forreston FFA and plant science classes will soon hold their annual plant sale at the school greenhouse located on the southwest corner of the Forreston Junior and Senior High School property by the bus garage. 

Despite this unusual spring, the greenhouse has plenty of products available with old favorites and many new varieties.

The sale will be open to the public beginning Thursday, May 3 from 3 to 6 p.m.

Starting Friday, May 7, the greenhouse will be open from 3 to 6 p.m. every day and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. 

Check for the “open” sign on Ill. 72 for Sunday times. Future times will depend on sales.

A wide variety of plants including vegetables, herbs, flowers, and perennials will be available at the sale. 

Students have also created planters, hanging baskets, and other plant combinations.
