Poinsettia Planting

Various dates

Horticulture Department

Hello everyone!

Hope you all had a good summer. With the fall semester just a few days away, we finally have some dates set up for poinsettia planting for the sale later this year. As we’ve mentioned before, this year’s sale is completely volunteer driven, which means we will need some help setting up the plants. We’ve spread out the work across four dates, listed below.

Tuesday, 8/26. 10:00AM (Finish day at 1500 plants)

Tuesday, 9/2. 1:30PM (Finish day at 4500 plants)

Friday, 9/5. 10:00AM (Finish day at 4300 plants)

Tuesday, 9/16. 10:00AM (Finish day at 1600 plants)

The majority of the work will be done on 9/2 and 9/5. We will most likely work into the night on those dates. For those of you who would like to help but have obligations in the daytime, we’ve got you covered, but any help during those dates is greatly appreciated. If you’d like to help or have any questions, please send us an email and let us know. We will also keep everyone posted once we have dates set up for the Fall plant sale. 

Have a great Fall semester!

Hope to see you there!
