Fall Native Plant Sale – 2019
Fall Native Plant Sale
Member Preview: September 26, 4-6 pm
Public Sale: September 28-29 and Continues October 5-6, 9 am-4 pm
Choose from an array of native plants for a variety of garden sites and styles, from wet ponds to dry rock gardens. Fall, although often overlooked, is the ideal time for gardening. Cooler temperatures and increased rainfall make it easier to introduce new shrubs, berries, and flowers for the next gardening season. These Museum nursery propagated plants include options for attracting butterflies, hummingbirds, and other wildlife to your yard.
Native plants are a good choice for area gardeners because such plants tolerate the area’s weather and serve as food and shelter for area wildlife, while also providing a good show in the garden.
The Virginia Living Museum’s horticulture staff holds this annual sale as a fund-raiser, but the real goal is to introduce the gardening public to the incredible variety of native plants that will do well in the landscape, and to educate gardeners about those which are better left in the wild.
The sale will be held in the Conservation Garden and as always, the Museum’s knowledgeable horticulture staff will be on hand to answer your questions, discuss the wildlife benefits of native plants and help with any particular gardening situations. All plants are nursery propagated and many are not yet available in the commercial nursery trade.
Sale held rain or shine.
Admission to the sale is free.
