The annual PCC Plant Sale is held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, May 4-7 at the Rock Creek Campus greenhouse, 17705 N.W. Springville Road. On Saturday, May 7, plants will be two for the price of one. This year, there will be at least 200 types of annuals, perennials, shrubs, vines and trees from which to choose. Also, there will be about a dozen different types of tomatoes, including super cherries and German heirloom. Finally, there will be the ever-popular fuchsia, hanging bags, mixed flower- baskets and patio bowls for decks and hangers. Prices will be posted and proceeds will go to the PCC Foundation for Landscape Technology scholarships and to buy instructional materials.
