OTHELLO — The Othello FFA will hold its annual plant sale on Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27 and May 3 and 4. The sale will be held at the Othello High School greenhouse, located at the back of the school, off of Juniper Street.

This year, the Othello FFA will be selling geraniums, daisies, mainstay and easy wave petunias, dahlias, calis or calibrachoas, snow asylums, robina, creeping Jennies, potato vines and coleus.

“Plants are going to be in a variety of sized pots,” said Kris DeTrolio, Othello High School greenhouse teacher. “Some are in larger sizes – two or three plants to a pot. Some are big pots; some are in smaller pots.”

The flowers themselves were shipped to the Othello FFA as little plugs that the FFA students replanted.

“We had some struggles this year,” DeTrolio said, who is in her second year of doing the flower sale. “This has not been as good a year for us. We had struggles with the weather. We’ve learned a lot this year.”

The Othello FFA flower sale will take place over two weekends – April 26 and 27 and May 3 and 4. Friday hours will be 3:30 to 6 p.m. Saturday will be 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Othello High School is located at 340 S. Seventh Avenue. The greenhouse is behind the high school, off of the bus loop on Juniper Street.
