2015 FFA Plant Sale starts Wednesday

DDHS FFA Plant SaleATTENTION GREEN THUMBS: The Delavan-Darien High School FFA plant sale starts this week and wraps up May 15.

Hours are:

  • 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, May 6-8;
  • 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 9;
  • 3-5 p.m. Thursday and Friday, May 14-15.

The FFA has been keeping the DDHS greenhouse full of hanging baskets and combo pots. New this year is a limited supply of specialty “tomtatoes.” With these grafted potato/tomato hybrids, you’ll get potatoes on the bottom and cherry tomatoes on the top.

There is also a great selection of potted plants and hanging baskets.

“Our petunia and dragon wing hanging baskets look really good,” FFA advisor Marty Speth said. “The Cheesecake and Black Satin petunias are very nice and will sell out quickly. The coleus is very nice and there are 10 varieties. Several varieties of dahlia, including Eye Candy and Hypnotica Tropical Breeze, look really good, too.”

Back this year, are the 12-inch “Welcome” and “American” sign planters. Those will sell quickly, Speth said.

For vegetable gardeners, there are lots of various tomatoes, assorted other veggies and herbs.

Proceeds from the plant sale support the DDHS FFA Chapter. The sale is open to the public. Parking for the DDHS greenhouse is available through the school’s staff parking lot entrance on Highway 11.
