A variety of spring plants will be available for purchase next month when the Arkansas Tech University Department of Agriculture hosts the 33rd annual spring plant sale on Friday, April 15, and Saturday, April 16.

The sale will run from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. both days, and the sale will take place at the Arkansas Tech Greenhouses on the north side of the main campus in Russellville.
