20th Annual UF Environmental Horticulture Plant Sale is this Weekend
The UF Environmental Horticulture Department is holding it's 20th Annual Plant sale outside the greenhouse on campus Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7 from 9 am to 5 pm
The sale is so popular, last year they sold out of all their plants in just a few hours. We spoke with Cindy Sigler the President of the Environmental Horticulture Graduate Student Association about what drives 1000s of gardeners to this sale each year.
We get them as unrooted cuttings in January. We grow those up, re-pot them, pinch them back.
They go back to the Graduate Student Association we use them for travel grants and educational trips.
There were thousands of people here. We sold out of Coleus by noon and 3 pm everywhere else.
We have some donations from local and regional nurseries. We have fruit trees, annual, and perennial flowers, and unusual and rare cycads and succulents. There’s a wide variety of things for every kind of plant collector at this sale.
