It is almost time for the Shaker Lakes Nature Center's Annual Plant Sale! The Nature Center is looking for volunteers to help with both our Catalog Pick-Day on Wednesday, May 8, and/or on our on-site Plant Sale on Saturday, May 11.
There are a number of positions and shifts available for both days. If you are interested and able to volunteer, go to their online form to sign up or contact Kristina Arthur directly at email@example.com or 216-321-5935 *237.
There will be a lot of interesting new plants this year, many returning favorites and, as always, a focus on native perennials or cultivars of our natives. It is a great way to get a burst of early spring.
Holden Arboretum Plant Sale
The annual plant sale is Saturday, May 18, and Sunday, May 19, from 10am – 4pm (Members’ Preview: Friday, May 17, Noon – 6pm), featuring nearly two dozen species of Holden’s nursery propagated and grown wildflowers, most from seeds collected at Holden. In addition, dozens of selected area nurseries and gardens are invited to offer a wide selection of perennials, annuals, herbs, woody plants (shrubs/trees), and garden accessories, as well as on-site garden tool and knife sharpening. Access to a variety of plant and soil experts makes this one-stop shopping opportunity informative and well worth your time. A portion of each sale supports Holden Forests & Gardens.
The sale is free for members, with admission for nonmembers. There is a separate fee for tickets to the Canopy Walk/Emergent Tower — $4/adults, $2/children.
