Fall Plant Sale – Sept 14, 4-6pm

VLM Member Preview

Members are invited to get a head start on purchases for their fall gardening additions.  Choose from a large selection of summer and fall blooming native wildflowers, shrubs, and small trees for a variety of garden sites and styles.  Many of these plants are excellent for attracting butterflies, hummingbirds, and other wildlife to your yard.  Native plants are good choices 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.  Fall is the best time of year to do the majority of your heavy gardening.  The majority of the plants have been cultivated and grown at the VLM.  Sale will be held rain or shine.  Admission to the sale is free.  For more information.
