Native plant sale set

TROY — Brukner Nature Center will once again partner with Native Ohio Plants, a local native plant nursery, run by BNC volunteers Claire and Ron Corbett. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 22.

They will not only have a variety of native trees, shrubs and wildflowers for sale, but can also provide advice and encouragement for your native plant gardens.

Native plant gardens are important to our soils and climate and valued for their role in the ecosystem. They don’t need extra chemicals to thrive and once established their water needs are in balance with what nature provides. Native plants feed native insects that feed a great diversity of native wildlife, forming an intricate web of life.

Those gardening with native plants also may consider joining the center’s Wild Gardens Club, a group of like-minded folks passionate about our native flora.
