DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) -The greenhouse at Duncan High School is blooming with flowers just in time for the school's annual plant sale.

FFA students in the school's horticulture class planted the flowers in January and the public is now welcome to purchase them. The sale includes several types of flowers including geraniums and petunias and even tomatoes and sweet potato vines. The plants range in price from $1 to $4 each.

According to the students' teacher, growing the plants not only helps the students develop a green thumb, but helps teach them responsibility.

“It's things where they can learn these activities they do and apply it with hands-on science and it's something they can do other than book work,” explained Cory Jarboe, Duncan High Ag teacher.

The money raised with benefit the school's horticulture program.

“My favorite part about doing this is watching all the plants grow, planting them, fixing all the soil and just watering them and having a fun experience and learning new things I can apply to the garden and learn some morals in life,” said Justin Glover, a student.

“It’s a great idea to do it, because it gives you goals in life to where if you want to create your own garden you can,” said Richard Bassette, a student.

The plant sale runs until 5:30 p.m. Thursday and from 11 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Friday.

You are asked to stop at the high school office first and you'll be directed to the greenhouse from there.
