Langley Home and Garden: University horticulture students host annual plant sale

Kwantlen Polytechnic University's annual plant sale raises funds for the horticulture program.

Kwantlen Polytechnic University students have been selling plants at their annual sale since 1994 and do so again on April 30.

“All the items were created by the students in various horticulture classes happening from September to April,” explained Shelley Murley, instructional associate of production horticulture in the Faculty of Science and Horticulture.

The public can go to Langley’s Horticulture Field Lab from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“We have a variety of annuals, basket stuffers, perennials, woody shrubs, conifers shrubs, fruit tree and berry bushes, veggie plants, herbs, hanging baskets and more,” she said.

The money raised is plowed back into helping students.

“All the proceeds go back to the horticulture department to help run the program,” Murley added.

The field lab is at 20902 Langley Bypass. There’s free parking there and additional parking at the main campus across the road.

She noted that a gourmet barbecue is on all day.
