Fall Plant Sale - Perennials for Pollinators

Finished for the Season. Check back next fall. 

We occasionally host a plant sale in the fall. In past years we sold heirloom apple trees that were good cider making varieties, spring bulbs and alliums (garlic & onions).

 

This year, we are selling perennial flower plants that are great for pollinators and wetland restoration. These plants were grown from local seeds, preserving our local genotypes, which are better for local pollinators.

One of the District's goals is to conserve natural resources and we do that by promoting propagation and preservation of native pollinator plants with local genotypes (from local seed). 

Late summer and fall is a great time to plant perennials! The soil is warm, yet the nights are getting cooler, allowing the roots to establish before winter, while not overheating the plant.
