Horticulture students at the Webster City High School have been hard at work getting plants ready for their annual spring sale for the public.

Preparations began in February as the students began their planting.

"All Introduction to Agriculture students are involved with the sale," student Cole Hilpipre said. "We have been coming out and caring for the plants every day."

Student Hannah Risetter said that money from the plant sale will go toward future planting as well as other greenhouse expenses.

The plant sale will be held from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the greenhouse until all of the plants are sold.

There are more than 20 kinds of plants, with sale prices being: Six-packs for $2; 3-inch pots for $2; 10-inch hanging baskets for $10; 12-inch hanging baskets for $15; and 14-inch hanging baskets for $20.
