Preston High School’s FFA Chapter is holding its third-annual Poinsettia sale from now until Christmas.
Part-time ag instructor Josh Evans spearheaded the project last fall and said the Christmas “flowers” are available in 7-inch and 8 1/2-inch pots. He said ag students in his advanced greenhouse class acquired the starts right after school started this fall and have been tending to the plants ever since.
He said the price for the 7-inch containers with single blossoms are $8. The larger plants will cost $12. Four varieties are available including fireworks, freedom pink, marble, and jingle bells.
The Preston FFA greenhouse is located on the south side of the Craner Ag Building, just east of Preston High School. The flowers can be picked up Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with the exception of the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
