AFFEW Native Plant Sale 2023

Our Native Plant Sale will be done a little differently this year. We will not have an in-person event! All orders must be ordered in advance. We will be accepting orders through April 22 for Garden & Single Species flats plus individual Quart & Gallon plants.

Help protect our species by gardening with native plants! These important plants provide nectar, pollen, and seeds for many insects, birds and animals. They are also hosts for many insects all year long. 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 butterflies! Last year, our sale introduced over 1700 new native plants to our community!
