The 2013 Sullivan County Conservation District Plant Sale is underway. SCCD’s biggest fundraiser, money raised from the Plant Sale supports the District’s conservation activities throughout the year, including educational workshops, environmental outreach to schools and communities, tours and programs. A variety of healthy and hardy plants are available at good prices, including fruits (apples, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and peaches), perennial vegetables, (rhubarb, asparagus, horseradish and ostrich ferns – for grow-your-own “fiddleheads!”), hardwood and softwood trees (white oak, paper birch, balsam and fraser firs), and wildlife plants (alternate-leaved dogwood, northern bayberry, and a special wildlife pack of 5 different species). New this year are special and hard-to-find ornamentals, including 6 named varieties of lilacs (early, mid and late blooming), an azalea, and 2 kinds of magnolia trees.
Orders are being taken until March 29th, and plant pick up will be at Log Cabin Nursery in Claremont on May 4th.
The catalog for the Plant Sale and the order form are both available online on the SCCD website www.sullivancountynh.gov, click on “Conservation District”. Paper copies of the catalog and order form are also available.
