Native Plant Sale

Saturday, June 12 * Time TBA

Rotary Park, Ludington

Help protect our species by gardening with native plants! AFFEW will offer a variety of native plants for sale in early June. These important plant species provide nectar, pollen, and seeds that serve as food for insects, birds and animals. Native plants also require minimal maintenance and their deep root system absorb more water than a traditional lawn. With the continuous decline of the Monarch butterfly population you can make a difference by creating a habitat for these beautiful and important orange butterflies!

Last year our sale introduced nearly 1000 native plants to our community!  AFFEW will partner with Birdsfoot Native Nursery and Designs By Nature to bring these amazing plants to YOU!

2021 preorder information will be available by April. There will be a LARGE selection of individual quarts and gallon plants available the day of the sale and a representative from Birdsfoot Native Nursery will be there to answer any questions. We are excited to announce that this year we will also have a limit supply of woodland wildflowers and ferns! As we get closer to taking orders a list of species will be posted below.

Garden and Single Species Flats

Each Garden Flat comes with 38 organic plugs and a design plan with a mixture of plants. They include instructions and layout for a 4’x10’ garden. These one year plants are grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. They typically do not bloom or reach full maturity until the second year.
