Spring native plant sale

2018 spring plant sale dates are May 4, 5 and 6.

May 4th from 11 am-6 pm is pre-order pick up day. All CFC members are welcome to shop on the 4th along with people who have pre-ordered plants.

The public sale on May 5 and 6 is from 9 am-3 pm.

Each spring, CFC’s annual Native Plant, Shrub and Tree Sale attracts customers from as far away as Wisconsin. CFC offers homeowners more than 18,000 native plants—and 225 native species—including thousands of milkweed plants, part of CFC’s “Milkweed for Monarchs” campaign. Gardeners value the sale both for the abundant supply of hard-to-find native plants and for the information on planting and care shared by CFC volunteers. The sale has been so successful that CFC now offers a native tree and shrub sale in the fall as well.

Our ability to set up this huge event is contingent on volunteers. We particularly need volunteers to set up tables, unload plant delivery trucks, label plants, fill pre-sale orders and arrange plants on tables in the week before the plant sale. At the plant sale we need people who are knowledgeable about native plants to give advice to shoppers and we need people to help load vehicles. After the sale, we need help taking down everything and putting it away. Sign up for a volunteer shift at our next plant sale.
