Daniel Boone Native Gardens Facebook

  9 AM - 1 PM, APRIL 29TH, 2017

The Daniel Boone Native Gardens Board invites you to stop by for our annual plant sale fundraiser on April 29th, 2017 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Local growers and vendors will be selling native and locally raised plants in the parking lot.

Vendors this year include Neal's Natives, Shady Grove Gardens & Nursery, Woodbine Nursery, Miranda Root, and Mike Carson. You can pre-order plants from John Neal for pick up at the sale. Email nealsnatives@gmail.com for details and a list of available plants. If you are interested in participating as a vendor, please see the information at the bottom of this page. This year's sale will also feature native perennials propagated from seeds by students and other volunteers at the Biology Greenhouse.

Information about gardening with native plants and for birds and pollinators will be available from a variety of groups, such as the North Carolina Native Plant Society and Audubon Society. The Master Gardeners will offer an Invasive Weed Clinic for those seeking to learn who the "thugs" are that you may not want in your garden.

There will be events scheduled in the Gardens, including children's activities. Plan to bring the family and have a fun-filled outing!

Vendor information: This one-day annual fund raising for the Daniel Boone Native Gardens is a great opportunity for you to connect with customers early in the season and show off your horticultural stock. At the end of the day, a contribution of 20% of gross sales is requested as a contribution to the Daniel Boone Native Gardens. We will be prepared to give you a tax-deductible receipt. Your plants need not be only native species, but we ask that you bring only locally raised plant material for sale. Trees and shrubs, wildflowers, vegetable flats, perennials, etc. are all welcome. If you have craft items related to birds or plants, let us know and we will be glad to consider inclusion. To register as a vendor for this event, please download the invitation letter for contact information.
