Earth Day 'Vegetable Garden' Plant Sale at LWC

By Dr. Michael Bosela

Lindsey Wilson College students will be selling plants for Earth Day on Friday April 21 from 4pmCT-7pmCT and on Saturday April 22 from 10amCT until NoonCT in the Biology Department greenhouse.

Prices are affordable, generally ranging from $1.00-$2.00 per cell pack (individual plant), and the proceeds will be used to fund natural area projects on campus as well as for general greenhouse upkeep and maintenance.

The greenhouse is located on the fourth floor of the Fugitte Science Building, 411 Helen Flatt Dr., Columbia, KY, and is accessible by elevator.

This is the sixth consecutive year for the plant sale. Compared with prior years, the inventory is more narrowly focused this time (the students are selling vegetable garden plants exclusively), but we have lots of diversity within this category. The students have grown 30 varieties of tomato; our largest selection to date, including some of the most unusual cultivars available (Garden Peach, Blue Cream, Blue Beauty, Pork Chop, etc.) as well as time-tested classics (Brandywine, Better Boy, Beefsteak, German Pink, Persimmon, etc.).

The number of pepper cultivars is not quite as large (20 varieties), but the selection is just as diverse and includes multiple large bell pepper cultivars (Big Bertha, Chinese Giant, California Wonder, etc), the hottest pepper in the world (Carolina Reaper), and some of the most visually stunning peppers (Poblano, Lemon Drop, Black Hungarian, etc.). We also have a large assortment of herbs, melons, cucumbers, squash, okra and much more.

For more information including an inventory list with pricing contact Dr. Michael Bosela at 270-384-8192, or by email at boselam@lindsey.edu.
