Fall Native Plant Sale, D&R Greenway

Thursday September 16, 2021
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

D&R Greenway Land Trust announces dates for its popular autumnal native plant sale, open to the public on Thursday, September 16, from 5 – 6:30 p.m.; Friday, September 17, from 5 – 6:30 p.m.; and Saturday, September 18, from 9:00 until 11:00 a.m.

Fall is an ideal time for planting shrubs and new trees, as they establish strong root systems before winter, well ahead of the stress of summer heat. Significantly, local plants require less maintenance in terms of fertilizer, water and pesticides. The land trust's Native Plant Nursery specimens are grown from locally sourced starter plants free of nicotinoid insecticides which harm pollinators. Local plants are conditioned to survive regional stresses. Planting natives that evolved locally turns home gardens into habitat. Our Nursery, in front of which the sales are held, is an outdoor space. Visitors selecting their plants must wear masks and maintain social distancing. As in earlier COVID-affected events, D&R Greenway Staff monitors 'entrance', as needed.

An up-to-date inventory is at the D&R Greenway's Native Plant Nursery's website: https://drgreenway.org/shop/native-plants/
