With native plants, you can create a beautiful landscape that also benefits the environment. Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve will hold its Spring Native Plant Sale, boasting a premier selection of more than 200 species of high-quality herbaceous and woody native plants, from May 11 to June 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, at the Visitors’ Center. Plants are available for purchase throughout the week, but the weekends offer the largest selection. Knowledgeable staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and help you choose the most suitable plants for your site.
Preserve members get a head start on the shopping, from 2 to 7 p.m., May 10, and are invited to enjoy the Member’s Day Lecture, from 1 to 2 p.m., with MarkHighland, founder of The Organic Mechanic Soil Company, as he discusses sustainable soil.
