Fall: The Best Time To Do Your Spring Planting!

  • Cooler weather, pretty colors, fewer bugs
  • Plants do better in Fall! Soil is warmer than in the spring. Less drought stress. You don’t have to water as much. Plants get growing next spring before garden centers even have plants on the shelves.
  • Save Spring for enjoyment (and weeding…) plant now, for one less thing to do in spring
  • Save money! Nurseries often have fall end of season discounts

Make a day of it!

This event is the same day as two other great nearby events

Things to Bring

  • Quart and plug shoppers: bring a cardboard tray to hold your plants (think costco, or from a flat of beverages). We’re working to secure a supply as well.
  • Your enthusiasm for native plants!
  • 1-3 gallon pot shoppers: we’ll have 7 wagons on site to help you move plants to your vehicle. But if you have your own wagon to bring, you won’t have to wait!
