Mums the word at SFCC fall plant sale


Jamie Suthers, a freshman horticulture major, inspects one of the 650 mums for sale at the State Fair Community College Mum Sale. The event, which began Tuesday, features a variety of multi-colored and single-colored mums. Single colored mums are priced at $10 for one or three for $15. Tricolored mums are $12 each or three for $30. The sale will continue until the supply is gone. For more information, call 596-7238.


Alexandra England, a sophomore agronomy major from Rocky Mount, spaces the mums early Wednesday morning behind the Potter Ewing Ag Building on the State Fair Community College campus. Program Coordinator Brad Driskel said this season has not been too bad for the mums, although he would have liked more sunshine.


Some of the 650 mums for sale are pictured on the ag grounds behind the Potter Ewing Building at SFCC. The plants are raised by the 10 horticulture students and 65 members of the Ag Club at SFCC. Started by plugs the department gets from Hummert Greenhouse and Supply Co. in St. Louis. the members have cared for the plants all summer. Although not in full bloom presently, they should be ready in full color in a week to 10 days.


Tyler Stayton looks to make sure the mum he is getting ready to lift is the one his customer is looking for. Proceeds for the sale benefit the Horticulture Club and greenhouses at SFCC. The members have grown some unique holiday mums this year, including Spellbound, Jack O’ Lantern, Trick or Treat and Candy Corn Gigi Gold, as well as the more traditional single-colored plants.
