Now through May 12, the Hillsboro FFA Chapter will be selling an assortment of flowers, vegetables, ferns, different types of hanging pots and assortment of planters.

The Hillsboro Greenhouse Management Class plants, waters and cares for these plants when getting them ready for the sale. The students are learning the practices of growing healthy plants. They are also learning growing, planting, transplanting, fertilizing, pesticide, marketing and customer service.

The class is selling petunias, marigolds, snapdragons, geraniums and more. The greenhouse projects are mainly used for educational purposes, but any profit from the sales goes directly to greenhouse upkeep, purchases for the following year, and FFA activities.

If you are interested in buying any flowers, contact the greenhouse class at emcneal@hillsboro-indians.org or call 937-393-3485 ext. 1580. The greenhouse at the Hillsboro City Schools will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or an appointment can be scheduled outside of school hours. The address for the Hillsboro FFA Chapter Greenhouse is 550 U.S.Route 62 South, Hillsboro.
