Elkin High School’s Future Farmers of America (FFA) is hosting an annual Spring Plant Sale at its greenhouse on April 18 through April 22 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The greenhouse is located on Vine Street, right off of West Main Street, behind the Elkin Public Library.

The plant sale will consist of different kinds of herbs, pepper plants both sweet and hot, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, eggplant, cantaloupe plants, twelve different varieties of tomatoes, different flowers and hanging baskets, and fruit bushes and trees. The trees will be perennials and annuals.

The students said the prices are affordable, so it would be a great place to buy plants for any garden.
