Tropical plant care class offered Nov. 14 at Appalachian

BOONE—Appalachian State University’s Department of Biology will hold a class on the selection and proper care of tropical foliage plants.

The class will be held Saturday, Nov. 14, at the greenhouse located at 333 Dale Street off State Farm Road. Participants can choose to attend a class from 9:30-11 a.m. or from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. The class is free and the public is invited to attend.

This fun class, part of the biology department’s outreach program “High Country Gardening,” will be a continuation of a class offered in October, with a focus on less common species. The class will include a brief tour of the greenhouse conservatory and a demonstration of vegetative propagation techniques.
