MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Northeast High School is holding its annual Horticulture Plant Sale with some changes this year.

Flower lovers can purchase various plants from True Boston Ferns to vegetables, but must practice social distancing.

No more than four customers will be allowed to enter the school’s greenhouse for 15 minutes, if there’s a line.

Lula Williams, the agriculture science teacher, says this year is different from most due to the pandemic. Students are unable to see the flowers they planted before being sold, but seeing their hard work makes her proud.

“They did not get a chance to see all this, the fruits of their labor did all this. I was amazed at seeing the work that they did,” Williams said. “This is also our first year in the greenhouse as well.”
