Student Landscape Association to sell Valentine’s Day flowers

rosesHelp the members of the Columbus State Landscape Association finance their upcoming trip to their national competition, and get in good with your sweetheart at the same time! CSLA is taking orders for bouquets of roses or tulips (or both!) through Friday, February 8, and you will be able to pick up your order on Wednesday, February 13 or Thursday, February 14, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

You can order a dozen roses in pink, red, white or yellow for $30; a half dozen for $15, or a single rose for $3. You can also order a bouquet of five tulips for only $5! Email your order to, then pick up your order and pay for it Feb. 13 from noon – 6:00 p.m., or Feb. 14 from 9:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. in the Davidson Hall second floor lobby! It’s easy!

And if you completely mess up and forget to order the flowers ahead of time, you can still salvage your relationship by coming to the cafeteria on Valentine’s Day, (guys--it’s February 14!) where CSLA members will be selling more flowers during the day. (Pick up candy on your way home. We can’t help you with that!)
