Earth Day Plant Sale Supports Conservation: April 23 - 25
Periwinkle groundcover wlll be for sale
You don’t have to live in Connecticut to take advantage of the Earth Day Plant Sale sponsored by the Northwest Conservation District at the Goshen Fair Grounds this weekend. This annual fund-raising event benefits the non-profit group dedicated to the conservation and sustainable use of local natural resources. There are things you probably can’t find at your local garden center, like bare-root seedlings of Balsam Fir, Norway Spruce and Austrian Pine ($30 for a bundle of 25). There are ornamental shrubs such as witchhazel ($26 for a 3-gallon container) and Ruby Ribbons Switchgrass, a new Panicum from UCONN’s breeding program ($20 for a 2-gallon container), and groundcovers such as periwinkle ($48 for 100 bareroot plants). For a full list of what’s for sale click here. A spokeswoman for the district advises shopping early on Friday for the best selection.
