In April of each year, the ASCM holds a Native Plant Sale. This important fundraiser is marking its 20th year in 2018! Over these years, the Native Plant Sale has continued to grow in scope and popularity, becoming a "Don't Miss It" event among area gardeners for the 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.
The sale is always held on the last Saturday in April, so be sure to save the date: Saturday, April 28, 2018. Opening time is at 9:00 am, and the sale ends at 1:00 pm. To get the best selection you should plan to be there before 10:00 am. 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). We can only accept cash or check payment at the sale.
If you'd like a preview of the variety we'll have at our sale, you can view our 2017 offerings by clicking here. We plan to have the "staples" again for 2018, and as always, we will included some new and interesting varieties for you to try. 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 related areas of interest. We also provide a broad range of printed materials for our customers to consult.
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. We truly appreciate your support!
