Native Plant Sales

Friday, September 8, 2017 - 4:47pm

A garden full of plants native to Maryland is a great way to reduce stormwater pollution while providing habitat and food for butterflies, birds, and pollinators.

I just got news of two native plant sales.  They are not close, but not that far and worth it for all natives.

In Howard County, Lauren’s Garden Service – Native Plant Nursery is having a fall sale!

September 23rd from 10am – 1pm
3575 Sharp Rd
Glenwood, MD 21738
Lauren’s Garden Service Native Plant Nursery is having a sale. Come shop a variety of native perennials, shrubs, and trees at our nursery! We also stock a variety of garden accents, including containers, baskets, trellises, and torches. Experienced gardeners will be present to help you with your selection and answer any questions you may have. Can’t make this sale? See more events on our website: http://www.laurensgardenservice.com/2017-events All plants are locally native to Howard County and locally grown. 

And in Annapolis, Cape Conservation Corps Sale

October 7, 9am-12pm
Cape St Claire
1223 River Bay Road
Annapolis, MD 21409
Many of us are interested in including more native plants in our yards… but it is hard to find them at our nurseries! And the best time to plant in our region is fall … but most plant sales are in the spring. We at the Cape Conservation Corps in Cape St. Claire, Annapolis area are holding a Native Plant Fall Festival, featuring hundreds of native shrubs, perennials and grasses that you can plant right now. We’ll have experts on hand to help with your selection, plus speakers on pollinators and native plants – even an observational bee hive so you can see native bees at work! 

And of course, there is always Herring Run Nursery, a project of Blue Water Baltimore.
6131 Hillen Road
Baltimore, Maryland 21234
