2020 Spring Plant Sale

Flower Collage

This year’s Plant Sale is now underway, featuring a variety of quality plants at good prices.  The money raised from the sale supports conservation activities throughout the year, including workshops, programs and projects aimed at promoting and conserving the county’s natural resources.  All of the plants offered are hardy, healthy, and adapted to our growing conditions.  Most are native, and none are invasive.  New items this year include a variety of lilacs to help you extend the lilac season and add color to your yard.  Buttonbush and black willow (blooms early spring) are both great for attracting pollinators.  Canaan Fir is a fast growing Christmas tree.  Elderberry is back due to popular demand and an increase in awareness of the health benefits of elderberry syrup.  You can find a recipe for elderberry syrup here or on the Conservation District website.

BAREROOT PLANTING DEMO AND SERVICE OPPORTUNITY

Pick-up your plants and then head over to Fruhlingsfarm on Spring Farm Rd. to see how to plant bareroot trees and shrubs.  Stick around after the demonstration and practice by helping plant part of a riparian buffer at the farm.  Riparian buffers stabilize stream banks preventing soil erosion, provide habitat for wildlife, and reduce flood damage.  John and Robin Wittemann, the farm owners, NRCS, and Sullivan County Conservation District will be planting over 400 trees and shrubs over a 3-day period and can use all the help we can get!  Check the Conservation District website for more information as the date gets closer.

Thanks in advance to everyone for making the Plant Sale a success!
