Gardening enthusiasts will have plenty of opportunities to use native plants to enhance their home landscapes this year thanks to plant sales planned by The Nature Foundation of Will County.
The "Bringing Nature Home Native Plant Sale,” which began March 13, has concluded. But two more plant sale opportunities will be popping up in the coming weeks.
A “Summer Blooms Native Plant Sale” will offer native plants for sale online from June 19-July 31. This sale will feature late-blooming native plants that will bring your garden to life in September and October. The plants also will provide nectar and nesting for bees, butterflies and other insects as they prepare for winter or migration.
Online orders for the third plant sale, “Oaktober Native Tree and Shrub Sale,” will take place from September 4-October 2.
For more details on these plant sales and upcoming seminars, visit the foundation's website.
Proceeds from all three plant sales will benefit the Forest Preserve District.
