Fall Native Plant Sale set for Oct. 6 at Tualatin Hills Nature Park
September 13, 2012
Want to give your garden a stronger start next spring? Get those native plants in the soil now.
Once established, native plants produce a landscape that needs little care, water, fertilizer, or pesticides. They also provide greater benefits for wildlife than traditional landscaping.
Area residents can select from a wide variety of trees, shrubs, and flowering plants in all price ranges and for every spot in the garden on Oct. 6 when Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District hosts its annual Fall Native Plant Sale.
The event will be held at the Tualatin Hills Nature Park, 15655 SW Millikan Way, Beaverton, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free.
Besides having a broad selection of more than 100 varieties of plants available for purchase, novice gardeners – or those with experience – can consult with knowledgeable staff and volunteers about native plants and their benefits.
All proceeds from the sale support the Friends of the Tualatin Hills Nature Park and go toward future park improvements and educational programs. For more information, call the Tualatin Hills Nature Park Interpretive Center at 503/629-6350.
