Want to grow native plants, to feed our pollinators and songbirds, and to provide an oasis for wildlife? Fall is an excellent time to plant. Expert gardeners will offer plenty of free advice, including the best plants for your yard’s conditions.
Come early to get the best selection of summer and fall bloomers, including a variety of asters and goldenrods, boneset and Joe-Pye weed, butterfly milkweed and swamp milkweed, ironweed, blue vervain, Culver’s-root and big bluestem. Native shrubs such as winterberry, beach plum, some dogwood, viburnums and rhododendrons are also available.
(The farmer’s market will also be offering many vegetables, fruits, eggs, fresh local fish, and luscious cold drinks and snacks.)
