Buzz: Georgia Northwestern’s fall plant sale opens Sept. 17. Smoother drive on 75 in Gordon County.



The Horticulture program at Georgia Northwestern Technical College is holding a small fall plant sale at the greenhouses and Building L located across from GNTC’s Floyd County Campus in Rome beginning Tuesday, Sept. 17. The sale hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. On Fridays the sale will be a half-day from 9 a.m. to noon. The sale will continue until the plants are sold out.

On Sept. 17 mums will be available for purchase and pansies will be ready around Oct. 1.

The sale is a way for GNTC to contribute to the community that also gives Horticulture students real-world experience. “I didn’t know that there were so many variations of mums until we started growing plants for this sale,” said Hannah Nesbitt, a Horticulture major from Rome.

The mums are located in a fenced area across from Building L and the pansies are located in the main Horticulture greenhouses. Both buildings are located across the street from GNTC’s Floyd County Campus in Rome.

Buyers should stop by Building L first, said David Warren, director of GNTC’s Horticulture program. Purchases may be made with cash or check; credit cards are not accepted. All proceeds from the plant sale will benefit the Horticulture program at GNTC.
