The Horticulture program at Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) will hold a fall pansy sale outside of Building L located across from GNTC’s Floyd County Campus in Rome beginning Monday, Oct. 24.

The sale will be held daily from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. through Thursday, Oct. 27, or until the plants are sold out.

Nick Barton, director of GNTC’s Horticulture program, said the sale will include a variety of clear face pansies, white with blotch pansies and yellow with blotch pansies. Pansies will cost $3 for a four-pack or $20 for a flat containing four packs totaling 32 pansies.

Purchases may be made with cash or check. Credit cards are not accepted.

The sale will provide Horticulture students with real-world experience as they assist with selections and load purchases, he said. All proceeds from the plant sale will benefit GNTC’s Horticulture program.
