Fall is a great time to plant trees and shrubs, when roots can get established before winter’s cold weather. Native trees and shrubs provide the best choices of woody plants because they absorb storm water, can survive our extreme temperatures, don't need fertilizer or insecticides and need watering only during the first year or two to get established.
Online PRE-ORDERING for the fall plant sale will begin in August 19th through August 31, but you can start planning now. We have created permanent web pages of local native plants including Shrubs and Trees. (also shows categories of Ferns, Forbs, Grasses and Sedges) You can filter by sun requirements, water requirements and color. Bookmark our native plant pages so you can find them when you need them.
Pre-Ordered plant pick up is September 21st, 9:30am - Noon, at the CFC White Farmhouse at 459 W. HWY 22, Barrington. (across from Good Shepherd Hospital)
