CHS horticulture students working hard

Kayla Gosnell is excited and double checking the zinnias to make sure the flowers don’t need water.It’s been a great year for some hardworking Centre High School horticulture students, according to Jon Meyer, ag education.

And all that work was on display from 9 a.m. to noon April 16 at the plant sale.

“These students have learned so much this year in the horticulture class,” he said, “ranging from learning the basic parts of the plants to learning how to create beautiful floral arrangements.”

The students have put in lots of time to learn how to grow different plants in a greenhouse, too, he added.

CHS students have taken the lead and prepared soil and determined when the right time was to plant different seeds, Meyer said.

“They have put hours of work into taking what they have learned in the classroom to grow flowers and vegetables for this year’s plant sale,” he said. “They have taken care of planting, transplanting, and have helped to determine what pots are the best for the type of plant that is growing.”

The students have grown a lot of different plants and they would like to have everyone come out and take a look, he said.

Even better, maybe some people might want to take some home with them.
