The Horticulture department at the College of Lake County will hold its annual plant sale on Thursday, May 8 and Friday, May 9 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the horticulture greenhouses (Building H near the Brae Loch Road entrance to the Grayslake campus, 19351 W. Washington St.). Proceeds from the plant sale help support CLC student scholarships and enhancements to the career programs.
The plants were grown from seed or plug by CLC students and staff. Sowing seeds and sale preparation began in November. Purchasers may choose from annuals (ranging from alyssum to zinnias in six-packs and four-inch containers); hanging basket combos (such as begonias, calibracoa and geraniums); vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, tomatoes or squash (three packs and four-inch pots); and herbs such as basil, rosemary and thyme (three packs and four-inch pots.) A wide variety of perennials are also available in six packs. A complete list of the plants on sale (with prices) is available on the College of Lake County Horticulture Department's Facebook page. Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card.
