The District’s native plant, shrub and tree sale is scheduled for Saturday, September 3, 2022 from 10am – 2pm.
Why plant in the fall?
Fall planting of cold-hardy perennials, shrubs and trees, has many advantages:
– Warm fall soil and cool days helps promote root growth with less stress on the plant
– Fall transplants will be larger and display more flowers than the same size plant planted the following spring
– Less plant maintenance is required at the end of the season
On-line ordering is now closed. Many plants have sold out, but any remaining plants will be available for purchase on Saturday Sept. 3 from 10am-2pm.
Notes on plant sizes:
- Trees seedlings range from 2′-6′ and are potted in 2 gallon containers.
- Shrubs are 3′-4′ and are packaged in 1 gallon containers (except Cornus amomum, Physocarpus opulifolius and Viburnam opulus which are bare root).
- Perennials are in 5″ pots.
The District has ordered a wonderful selection of native tree saplings, shrubs and plants the benefit pollinators. While we make every effort to insure that our orders are delivered complete, we anticipate that some offerings might become unavailable for reasons beyond our control.
Pick up will be at Holiday Brook Farm, 100 Holiday Cottage Road in Dalton.
