Sardis students ready with mums for your mom

Annual plant sale for Sardis ag program takes place May 11

Moms really love mums.

That’s what students at Sardis secondary school have learned over the 32 years of their successful Mother’s Day Plant Sale. The sale takes place once again this Saturday, and students of the agricultural program there have been busy preparing for it.

All of the proceeds for the plant sale go back into agricultural education at Sardis secondary, where students learn about every aspect of ag through a combination of in-class and hands on work throughout the school year.

And of course, they grow more than just the mums. Shoppers can find baskets and planters filled with fuchsia, petunias and more. The baskets are $25, and the planters are $30.

They’ve grown a variety that includes the popular Night Sky petunias, which resemble a starry sky with their splatterings of white spots, along with several other eye-catching varieties.

They have wave petunias and annuals by the six-pack or the flat, as well as 4” annuals, and 6 cm and 10 cm herbs and veggies.

The 33rd Annual Sardis Secondary Mother’s Day Plant Sale takes place at the Sardis secondary greenhouse, at 45460 Stevenson Road, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 11.
