Audubon plant sale
The annual Plant Exchange and Sale at Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) is a gathering of plant lovers where you can share not only your plants but your knowledge of and enthusiasm for them as well.
On Saturday, May 19, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., you can bring your extra plants to trade for new ones or bring cash to purchase plants. There will be a wide variety, including natives, from Audubon’s gardens as well as some donated by local nurseries.
You will find a good variety of annuals, perennials, and even trees and shrubs at the event. Perennial gardeners and early vegetable growers often have extra plants to bring to the sale and trade for other plants.
Designed originally to help local gardeners share their bounty and build up Audubon’s gardens, Plant Exchange and Sale has grown over the years to help support and continue to expand the educational gardens at ACNC.
This year, Audubon’s Native Plant Committee is working hard to bring in some new native plants that provide extra benefits to bees, butterflies and other insects that may not be provided by plants from other countries.
Exchange rates are based on plant condition and species and are tagged when you arrive. You get exchange tickets that you can use at check-out.
Plants to be traded must be of a non-invasive variety, in pots or containers (not plastic bags), and in good condition. If at all possible, please label plants with names. Audubon reserves the right to refuse plants or adjust the exchange rate based on species and condition.
If you don’t have plants to exchange, you can purchase ones that you want to add to your garden.
To donate plants before the Exchange, call ACNC at (716) 569-2345 to arrange a drop-off.
This event is outdoors and takes place rain or shine, so come prepared for the weather.
Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, N.Y., and Warren, Pa. To learn more, call (716) 569-2345 during business hours or visit auduboncnc.org.
