As residents prepare for warmer, spring weather to arrive, many are taking steps towards getting their gardens ready to bloom this season.

Owens Community College is hosting its annual spring plant sale beginning Wednesday morning at 10 a.m.

Owens is located in Perrysburg Township on Oregon Road . The plant sale will be held next to the greenhouse, near the entrance of the Owens Math/Science Center on the Toledo-area campus.

A wide variety of plants will be available, from shrubs to unusual trees. A majority of the shrubs will cost $15-25, while trees will cost between $20-50.

The Landscape and Turfgrass Crew Club will also sell perennials, including select hostas and daylilies, in addition to planters and hanging baskets.

All proceeds from the plant sale will go to the organization's participation in the annual PLANET (Professional Landcare Network) Student Career Days, which is a national horticultural and landscape competition with several colleges participating across the country.
