Spring Plant Sale 2014

After a long, cold winter and late spring, it is wonderful to see greenery, color and new life again! Come and join us at Monroe Technology Center’s annual Spring Plant Sale where you are sure to find a plant (or a cartload) you will love. Whether you’re looking for an herb, tomato or berry plant from our edible collection, a favorite perennial or annual, native plant or hanging basket…we want to help make your visit enjoyable. Look for students wearing bright yellow T-shirts that say CS Monroe Technology Center Spring Plant Sale designed and provided generously for us by world famous CustomInk! Or you may find a student or staff eager to help you in a green apron designed especially for Monroe also by the artists at CustomInk! We will have trees, shrubs, aquatic plants and over 600 hanging baskets to choose from so come early for best selection.

  1. Say, Debi. So glad it’s that time of year again for the MTC festival plant sale. What a lovely community event at your school where many citizens of our city joyfully come out to gather lovely shrubbery and outdoors and house plants to beautify their lawns and gardens.
    I will be searching too for the perfect eye catching, brightly colored blooms for my front door.
    See you, then, at the MTC Plant sale…and the “also brightly colored Tees & aprons” from CustomINK. (TM)

  2. Despite rains, which were heavy at times, customers turned out in large numbers yesterday in boots and raingear happily shopping.CustomInk did an impressive job! The T shirts were beautiful. And Culinary Arts pizza rolls were bought up quickly. Thanks to all who made the first day a great experience and success. Look forward to seeing everyone today and tomorrow also.

  3. We extended some sale days due to the weather and had some great response! Because of this we will be able to award several scholarships to Plant Sale students at the MTC awards ceremony next Friday. Many thanks to all for their generous support and prayers.
