Batavia Plain Dirt Gardener's Plant Sale

Don't forget that the Batavia Plain Dirt Garden Plant Sale is this Saturday May 8th from 9am-12pm at the Bethany Lutheran Church near Route 31 and Wilson Street in Batavia Illinois. There will be thousands of nursery grown and member grown plants have been dug from members gardens. They always have a great selection of native plants and because they come from local gardens they are adapted to our local climate. Proceeds go to the Wild Flower Sanctuary and fund scholarships given by the Batavia Plain Dirt Gardener Club. I'll give you fair warning that the line starts outside early around 8am and most plants are gone earlier than the noon cut off. This is a great opportunity to support the club and get great native plants for an inexpensive price.

Sounds like a fun day Rachel!

We have to get up and out extra early for a couple of local nature centers' native plant sales if we want to get some of the most coveted plants. Jack-in-the-pulpit, Great white trilliums, and several other beautiful and interesting natives often dissapear within the first hour.
