Vanessa Nelson organizes greenery for the upcoming plant sale.


Those wondering how the City of Andalusia creates such beautifully-planted pots can find out Thursday and Friday at the city’s Relay for Life team’s annual plant sale.

Vanessa Nelson, city horticulturist, said the sale will feature large trees, perennials, ferns, annuals, herbs, tropicals and a host of other delightful greenery. Prices range from under $10 and up.

“If you’ve ever wanted to know what we put in our plants, this is the time,” Nelson said. “Because whatever we don’t sell, you’ll see them in pots around town.”

All proceeds will benefit the Covington County Relay for Life.

The sale will be held Thursday at the city’s old skills building on South Three Notch, located between Greathouse Floors and Touch of Country, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and on Friday on the Court Square from 8 a.m. until.

The city will also host a hamburger and hotdog sale as part of their Relay fundraiser.
