2013 - Native/Local Plant Sales/Swaps

Greensboro, NC(Zone 7b)

This might be a good place to post about local happenings.

I just found out an acquaintance is a vendor at a couple of large native plant sales.


May 11/12

Mother Nature's Backyard
Gardena, CA




April 26/27
Morningside Plant Sale, Gainesville - April 26/27

MAY 17/18
Florida Native Plant Society Annual Meeting, Jacksonville

Looks like we missed the first one, but for those of you in FL, you might want to look into it.



MAY 10/11
Greensboro Master Gardener Passalong Plant Sale
GC Agricultural Center, 3309 Burlington Road, Greensboro, N. C.

(I used to participate in the MGV program, but in this county/state you have to "re-certify" every year, and I have run out of free time to do that! Our program participants always feature a lot of natives so it's always been worth the trip).

New garden nursery near the airport having dollar days sale. Still a lot of nice perennials.

Guilford Garden Center half off perennials, they have an excellent selection of some plants you won't find anywhere.
