Spring’s late arrival hasn’t stopped UNL’s Horticulture Club. The group will hold its annual spring plant sale from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 22 and 23.

A variety of annual bedding plants, vegetables, herbs and ready-made planters will be available in the west teaching greenhouse on East Campus, located east of Keim and Plant Sciences Hall.

Members of the Horticulture Club do everything to prepare the plants for sale, including seeding and transplanting, to daily watering. Plants are grown from either a plug or seed by club members.

The sale acts as a semester-long project as members typically begin seeding at the end of January and get the plugs in the middle of February, said club historian Erin Kingly.

Leftover geraniums and vegetables will be taken to Spring Affair, the Midwest’s largest gardening event at the Lancaster Event Center on April 26.
