Don't miss the Fall Native Plant Sale
Little Rock Audubon Center is hosting a Fall Native Plant Sale on Saturday, September 22 from 9am-1pm to help meet local demand for native plants.
Why plant in the fall?
From Pine Ridge Gardens: "Plants placed in autumn have the mild autumn days to begin to grow roots, which will continue at a slower pace over the winter. If you compare an October planted perennial and a same age potted plant that wasn't planted in the ground until May, you will often find that the root mass of the autumn planted plant will be more than twice as extensive as the spring planted plant by midsummer. This results in more foliage growth and likely more flowers in the first season, as well as a headstart for getting through the first hot (and possibly dry) summer."
RAIN OR SHINE. In the event of rain, all vendors and programs will be moved indoors.
Vendors as of 8-12-18: Pine Ridge Gardens, Grand Designs, Ozark Native Plants, and Bluestem Native Plant Nursery. Audubon will also have plants available.
