Audubon Society of Central Maryland
|In April of each year, the ASCM holds a Native Plant Sale, with 2014 marking
year! Over these years, the Native Plant Sale has continued to grow in scope and popularity, becoming a "Don't Miss It" event
among local (and a surprising number of not-so-local) gardening enthusiasts. Needless to say, it is an important
fund raising event for our Audubon Chapter and the sanctuaries we support.
The sale is always held on the last Saturday in April, so be sure to mark your calendar for Saturday, April 26, 2014.
Opening time is 9:00 am, and the sale ends at 1:00 pm. Please plan to come early! Plant Sale items are limited to stock on hand, so the early birds get the pick of the crop!
The ASCM Native Plant Sale is held on the grounds of the Audrey Carroll Audubon Sanctuary, 13030 Old Annapolis Road, just West of Mount Airy, MD. (Click here for a map or here for our 2013 Plant Sale flyer with map.)
The sanctuary is open for public access during the sale, and we encourage everyone to take the opportunity to explore our network of walking trails during the sale hours.
Our Native Plant Sale provides a unique selection of fresh, healthy plant stock that not only comes from local suppliers, but is natively suited to our unique regional weather and soil conditions.
If you'd like a preview of the variety we'll have at our sale, you can view our 2013 offerings by clicking here. We plan to have all of our "staple" offerings again for 2014, and we always try to include some new and interesting varieties for you to try.
Along with the wide variety of native plants, we always have expert advice available on the planting and care requirements of the plants we sell (and even those we don't). Master Gardeners from the surrounding counties and other expert naturalists look forward to consulting with customers on the sale day, making it a great opportunity to learn more about habitat creation using native plants and other related areas of interest. We also provide a broad range of printed informational and reference materials for our customers to consult.
And did we mention that profits from our Native Plant Sale help to provide the critical funding needed for our ongoing programs of environmental education and habitat preservation in our local area? Well, it is an extremely important point, and worth mentioning again!
Please check our News page in late Winter and early Spring each year for details on our Native Plant Sale, along with information on other ASCM programs and activities.
