School plant sales now under way

By March 28, 2011

Spring is right around the corner, and students from three Davis schools want to help you beautify your garden.

Birch Lane and Korematsu elementary schools, along with the Davis High School chapter of Future Farmers of America, are holding an online sale of all the plants, veggies, herbs and succulents your garden needs.

Six-packs of begonias, impatiens and other annuals are just $3, as are three-inch pots of thyme, oregano, lavender and other herbs. A variety of succulents and tomatoes and much more are also for sale.

Proceeds will benefit the garden programs at the three schools.

Online sales are under way now at http://www.mykorematsu.com/plant-sale/ and will continue until Wednesday, April 6. Customers may order and pay online and choose one of three pickup days and locations:

* Wednesday, April 13, from 1 to 5:30 p.m. at Birch Lane Elementary, 1600 Birch Lane;

* Thursday, April 14, from 12:30 to 6 p.m. on the Oak Avenue side of Davis High School; and

* Friday, April 15, from 2 to 5:30 p.m. at Korematsu Elementary, 3100 Loyola Drive.

A 14-inch pot full of a colorful variety of succulents will be raffled off to one lucky winner. Receive one raffle ticket for every $25 spent. Runner-up prizes include ivy heart topiaries and seed packets.
