The annual poinsettia sale at Penn College’s Schneebeli Earth Science Center greenhouse begins Wednesday and runs until this year’s limited inventory is sold. The hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays (closed Saturday and Sunday), and all sales are on a first-come, first-served basis. Prices are $10 for 7-inch plants and $8 for 6-inch plants. There will be no early sales or holds, and everything is “cash and carry.” (The ESC is at 203 Allenwood Camp Lane,  Montgomery – about 10 miles south of main campus, just off Route 15.)
