Students in the horticulture class at Roland-Story High School have been studying and learning about soil media used in plant production of horticultural plants. One of their activities is called “pop bottle topiary” in which they planted seeds in a pop bottle and used wire to create shapes and affect the plants’ growth.

“This was a fun activity that our student teacher Ms. Schwickerath had the students do which allowed them to put into practice skill sets they were learning in the class,” said Brad Taylor, horticulture instructor.
