Dig out your gardening tools -- it's spring! The SWIC Horticulture program is selling reasonably priced water and vegetable plants, tropicals, perennials, annuals, and herbs grown by SWIC students over the winter.

You can get your green thumbs (and fingers) on these plants at the annual plant sale from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 21-23 at the SWIC Belleville Campus, 2500 Carlyle Ave. The sale will be held in the greenhouse, located on the southeast corner of campus behind the baseball fields.

"Horticulture students play a major role in growing and nurturing these healthy, hardy plants throughout the semester," said SWIC Horticulture Program Coordinator Kurt Range. "They get to see their hard work pay off by selling these beautiful, hardy plants."

Only cash and check payments will be accepted. Proceeds benefit the Horticulture program.

Face masks and social distancing are recommended. For more information about the plant sale contact Kurt Range at 618-235-2700, ext. 5135, or
