Native Plant Sale


It's the time of year when we are spending more time outside, possibly gardening! If you are interested in learning more about plants native to the region, we have a great resource in central Ottawa. The Fletcher Wildlife Garden is located next to the Arboretum off Prince of Wales Drive. If you would like to purchase some native plants for your garden, the Fletcher Wildlife Garden annual native plant sale is coming up on Saturday June 1st from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Their website outlines why the project got started:  "With habitat loss a major factor in the decline of many plant and animal species, our goal is to encourage as many people as possible to create or restore natural landscapes on their urban or rural property. Our Interpretive Centre disseminates information on conservation issues and regional natural history. Behind the centre is our Backyard Garden designed to show how anyone can transform their own garden into one that is wildlife friendly".
