Gwinnett Tech Horticulture Program Hosts Fall Plant Sale Oct. 13-15
Dozens of Varieties of Annuals, Perennials, Trees, Shrubs and Vegetables Available

Whether planning ahead for spring or looking for autumn color to enjoy right now, gardeners and other plant enthusiasts will find plenty of inspiration at the Gwinnett Technical College Horticulture Program’s Fall Plant Sale.

Scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 13 through Thursday, Oct. 15, the plant sale will be held in the campus greenhouse near Building 600.

“Experts know that the secret to a beautiful garden is to get started in the fall, laying the groundwork for great blooms throughout the year,” said Horticulture Program Director Aaron Poulsen. “It’s the ideal time for planting, when the weather’s cooler and the days are shorter.” 

The Gwinnett Tech Horticulture Program holds a community plant sale twice a year to sell the plants the students have grown as a part of the curriculum. A variety of annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs, as well as fall vegetables, will be available for purchase by check or cash only. 

For more information on the plant sale, contact Roni Trimble at 678-226-6298 or rtrimble@gwinnetttech.edu
