The Riveredge Native Plant Sale is going on now. A selection of woodland and prairie plants are available as well as some rare plants like leatherwood and ginseng. More varieties will be added during the summer. So, if you don’t find what you are looking for, come back for another look throughout the summer growing season.
You can plant potted plants until mid-September as long as the ground is not frozen.
These plants are not like commercial plants. Their dormancy period may vary and be especially noticeable toward the end of the summer. So, when you purchase the plant it may not appear as it would at the peak of its growth. Just plant and enjoy it – you will eventually have a beautiful plant.
Water freshly planted plants weekly if there is no rain. Do this the following year as well. Water until the ground freezes.
