Plant Sale Information

Poinsettia and Amaryllis Sale

The 2022 sale was a success and we plan to do it again in November, 2023.

The 2022 Friends of the Gardens poinsettia and amaryllis sale was a hybrid event with online sales starting on October 31 through November 11 and in person sale on November 18. There were red, white and pink poinsettias, 10" poinsettia centerpieces, and two types of red and white amaryllis bulbs. Foil color options were silver, gold, green, purple, and red.

Students in the  K-State Greenhouse Operations Management class produce poinsettias and amaryllis in the Throckmorton Plant Sciences Greenhouse complex each fall semester. Hands-on production allows students to learn about light and temperature manipulation, and nutrient and greenhouse environment management. The students are responsible for all production decisions and practices.
