Published: Thu Apr 6, 2006Add a touch of spring to your house and garden and help a deserving Tennessee Tech University student while you're at it.
The TTU Garden Club’s annual plant auction will let you do just that, and this year’s is set for 7 p.m., Tuesday, April 18, at the Hyder-Burks Pavilion.
A wide variety of plants for house and garden will be available at the auction, including perennials, shrubs and trees.
Horticulture faculty members Douglas Airhart and Jed Young will be on hand to assist buyers who have questions about plant handling and other general information.
Participants will be treated to desserts, soft drinks and coffee — but get there early, because all plants are typically auctioned off by 9:30 p.m.
Proceeds from the sale go toward an annual scholarship award for a student in horticulture or landscape management.
Plants are being donated by individuals, local businesses and the School of Agriculture.
