Annual Relay for Life plant sale planned later this week

Published 1:26 am Tuesday, April 3, 2018

The planning and development department for the City of Andalusia will be holding a plant sale for Relay for Life on Thursday and Friday, April 5 and 6, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

“We have a bunch of plants that we are hoping to sell,” Wendell Dyess, an employee of the city, said. “The forecast doesn’t look too bad either, so it should be a beautiful day for a sale.”

Some of the plants that will be available include day lilies, plumbagos, banana trees and loropetalums.

The price range for the plants will be from $6 to $30.

“The most expensive plants that we will sell will be up to $30,” Dyess said. “And those will most likely be the crepe myrtles.”

All of the proceeds from the plant sale will go to Relay for Life.

“This is the City of Andalusia’s planning and development team’s Relay for Life fundraiser,” Dyess said. “So I hope a lot of people will come out and support a great cause.”

The forecast for Thursday is sunny with the high being 75 degrees and Friday it will be partly cloudy with the high being 80 degrees.
