Searching for hard-to-find natives for that special spot in a garden
bed? This time of year many Native Plant Society chapters sell plants
to support their local projects. You can also find sales at botanical
gardens and nature centers.
Now is a perfect time to add natives to your new or existing garden.
We think you’ll enjoy seeing them in your landscape and watching the
native pollinators return.
Here is a list of native plant sales coming
up this spring that we know of.
Aren't they cool? I've been chatting with Tim in Alabama, who's hosted purple martins since he was NINE YEARS OLD! He suggested that we try using gourds this spring and nearly guaranteed that we'll get martins with them. So I ordered two from Front Porch Crafts (gourdgrower5 on eBay) in Horse Cave, Kentucky. We'll paint them white and drill entrance holes. Stay tuned!
